Selecting the right flooring for your home is more than just an aesthetic choice. Your flooring needs to be durable, easily maintained, and mesh with the design theme you want to project in your home. Flooring trends in 2022 offer up a variety of choices, and it’s important to remember that you don’t have to pick just one.
When selecting flooring, you need to consider the type of traffic that the materials you decide on will be able to withstand. Flooring can also be used as a subtle indication of room usage and to tie in with your décor. It’s best to stick with subtle patterns and colors that will complement the overall elements of your home. Flooring can help to define spaces and make rooms feel larger (light colors) or smaller (dark colors). Practicality is the name of the game when making flooring selections. You want something that will show little wear and tear and is easy to clean up. White carpeting in a toddler’s room is probably not the way to go. At the same time, if you have a little one, you may not want to have an abundance of slick marble floors in the house.
There’s a never-ending variety of types and colors to choose from. Here’s a little peek into a few of the top choices. Parquet is a classic flooring option known for its durability. Look for the 2022 color palette to lean toward grays. You can have a lot of fun with the planks adding your own personality with the design pattern. Laminate flooring is probably the least expensive of the floor covering options, and you can select from a wide range of colors and designs. Porcelain adds a certain elegance to any space. It’s durable, and you can have everything from matte to glossy, depending on personal preference. Wood, perhaps the original flooring option, comes in a variety of colors with varying finishes as well. Wood adds warmth and a bit of nostalgia to any room. Concrete has been embraced in recent years as a flooring option. Instead of covering up what was previously considered, the subflooring can now meet any decorator’s vision. Painted, buffed, and sealed, you can literally paint anything on it that you can dream up. Natural stone flooring comes with nature’s design built right into it. No two pieces are alike. So if you like a bit of variety and texture, natural stone is a good option for a home exuding a quiet elegance. Carpeting hasn’t lost its foothold in the homes of 2022. The variety of colors and textures can make any room cozy. In recent years, wall-to-wall carpeting has been seen less and less, with area rugs turning up more and more to complement the stone or wood flooring owners are putting throughout the entire house.
