Timeless Flooring Options for Your Home
Let’s face it, trends come and go faster than we can blink. With certain things, it’s easy to swap out the old with the new but with others, it can be a bit more difficult. Flooring is the foundation of your home; it is a big commitment to make and can be costly and time-consuming to replace. This is why we are always on the lookout for timeless adaptable flooring that can develop and change with different design trends.
Wood is one of the safest, yet one of the most exciting flooring options for your home. Like the little black dress or a good pair of Levi jeans, hardwood floors never go out of style. Solid and engineered hardwoods are as classic as they come in the world of flooring. Hardwood flooring ages well and has maintained popularity over the centuries. Hardwood can be refinished which is a major plus if you do want to update your floors.
Hardwood stains and patterns do have a shelf life, however, and as stunning as the ever-popular “greige” or herringbone hardwood floor is, it’s best to walk a cautious line when it comes to trending wood colors and design. Timeless wood floor options are mid-toned in color and are simple in design.
The most exciting thing about the wood look is its longevity and flexibility. As technology evolves so does the design. Today’s classic wood look floor is not limited to just real hardwood! You can fake the wood look with durable tile, laminate, and even luxury vinyl. These realistic wood look materials are extremely durable and imitate the classic beauty of wood.
If you are looking for a cozier timeless flooring option, then carpet is right for you! When it comes to choosing a carpet, look for one that can evolve with your house and the different trends. Neutral colors are the best bet when it comes to choosing a timeless carpet. Neutral colors like beige or gray are adaptable to any design style. We suggest sticking to low or medium ply carpet as the longer shags do tend to fade in and out of popularity.
Tile is a bit harder to pin down as tile trends change often and the main driver when choosing them is personal taste. We are a big believer in creativity and passion for design, after all, it is YOUR house. If you are looking for something classic and timeless, subway tiles are always a perfect go-to! Subway tiles come in so many different shapes and sizes it’s easy to personalize your space with this classic trend, making them the perfect option for timeless bathroom floor tiles
Additionally, stone look tiles continue to dominate. Tiles that resemble the look of natural stone adds elegance to the home and give it that classic touch.
Like hardwood, natural stone has gotten a modern makeover. Designing with natural stone is timeless; shiny marble, clean sate, and rustic travertine will always add a timeless elegance to your home. Where things get more interesting with natural stone is the new technology that mimics the look with the convenience and durability of tile and vinyl.
Now more than ever it is easier to achieve a timeless look in your home! As new technology develops in the flooring industry, beautiful flooring has never been more accessible. For more information on designing a timeless, trend-proof house visit our blog!
