Vinyl plank flooring

New flooring can refresh your home and the money you spend on this investment can increase your home’s value. According to realtor.com, here are some flooring trends for 2020. 

Wood-look Porcelain Tile

Wood is a popular flooring choice because of its classic look and easy of cleaning. Now you increase the durability but keep that wood-like look by selecting porcelain tiles that resemble wood. They’re available in a variety of looks and finishes. These tiles look like real wood, but have the durability of porcelain tile so you won’t get scratched, dented wood floors.

Marble-look Porcelain Tile

Want the luxurious marble look but not the expense? You can get porcelain tiles that resemble marble! These tiles resemble marble at a fraction of the cost. Porcelain tile is tougher and more scratch resistant than other tile varieties and it’s resistant to stains.

Waterproof Vinyl Plank Flooring

You’ve probably seen laminate flooring, but you may not be familiar with vinyl plank flooring. It offers the look of hardwood with the durability of a luxury vinyl tile or plank. Choices for vinyl plank flooring are endless–it can look convincing as hardwood, stone or even tile. Plus, it’s waterproof so spills won’t damage your flooring! 

Stained Concrete

If you like a more industrial, modern look, then stained concrete would work well as flooring in your home. Stained concrete is usually mixed, poured and polished by hand. It’s also possible to stain existing concrete. 

Terrazzo

Sometimes what’s old is new again, and this is true in flooring as well. Terrazzo flooring, a popular mid-century modern flooring choice, includes chips of stone, marble, glass or granite embedded in a tinted cement, and then ground smooth and polished to a silky sheen.

Engineered Wood

Engineered wood floors are constructed of layers of both hardwood and plywood. This type of flooring is durable and strong, and offers a wood-like look that’s affordable and sustainable. Finishes are available in a variety of looks, but oak, mahogany and ash are trendy right now. They’re harder and less photosensitive than other woods so they last longer.

Reclaimed Materials

Reclaimed wood can bring a sustainable, historical and unique look to your home. Flooring can include everything from 100-year-old barns or vintage whiskey/wine barrels.
