If you are in the middle of replacing your flooring, you might be overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available. Which flooring is right for your home, and which flooring colors match the latest trends? Let’s take a closer look at how you can choose the perfect flooring color for your home.
What Are the Latest Trends?
Of course, before you can decide which color of flooring matches the latest trends, you need to know what the latest trends are. Although taste varies widely among homeowners, the following home characteristics have become increasingly popular in recent years.
● Neutral Color Schemes
Color palettes featuring whites, creams, and grays make for a bright home and easy decorating. Many homeowners love versatile neutrals that enhance their home’s natural light and can easily be changed down the road. Neutral color schemes work well in farmhouses, sleek and modern houses, and even rustic houses.
● Sleek Lines
A common theme among modern trends is sleek, clean lines in furniture and appliances. While traditional furniture tends to be a little more decorative, most modern furniture is no-fuss and sleek.
● Stainless Steel Appliances
Another feature commonly found in modern homes is stainless steel appliances. Often paired with dark cabinets and marbled floors, stainless steel makes a home appear sharp, clean, and professional.
● Statement Pieces
With the increasing popularity of neutral color schemes comes the increasing popularity of statement pieces. It is easy to add a bright pop of color to your kitchen or living room when most of the coloring is white or gray.
● Geometric Shapes
Geometric counters, tiles, artwork, etc. make a nice addition to modern cuts and colors. This is one statement piece that can easily translate to your flooring.
Which Flooring Colors Match Modern Trends?
The color of flooring you need largely depends on your type of flooring. Whether you have 2 or 20 different types of flooring in your home, it is important to make sure that everything complements everything else. If you want to match the latest trends, consider the following floorings and their modern color scheme.
Hardwood is a classic flooring choice that has always been in (and will probably never go out of) style. That said, many hardwood types and colors exist, and styles change over time. If you want to match current trends, we recommend a cherry, maple, or hickory colored hardwood floor. These colors pair wonderfully with modern trends. Cherry hardwood provides a pop of color, while maple contributes an element of warmth to a room. Hickory-colored hardwood pairs well with dark cabinets and steel appliances.
Another excellent flooring choice for modern homes is marble. Most homeowners prefer to limit marble flooring in their home, but it looks lovely in kitchens and bathrooms. An easy way to incorporate marbled flooring into a modern home is to purchase it in gray and white. This provides a classic, elegant look that looks current and up-to-date.
When it comes to carpet, both color and cut matter. Pure white carpet is difficult to keep clean, which is why we recommend a soft, off-white with a short pile. Shaggy pile makes it difficult to penetrate and remove dirt or stains. If you want to add a statement piece, either a neutral or contrasting rug looks great on ivory carpet.
Tile is one of the most versatile flooring types, making it easy to adapt to current trends. You can invest in tile that looks like wood, stone, brick, marble, etc. Additionally, geometric statement tiles look great in modern bathrooms.
