The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to reinvent your home. And when the weather in Westchester is gloomy, installing new flooring can be a fairly simple way of bringing more coziness or brightness into your space. This year’s trends have something for everyone, whether you’re looking for sleek and modern or warm and timeless. So to start 2017 off on the right foot, consider these 4 flooring trends!
1. Wide Flooring
As trends go, wide flooring looks to have staying power. And because the style is just a slight tweak on the classic wood floor, you don’t have to worry that it will look dated in a few years. Wide planks equal fewer seams, showcasing the beauty and detail of the wood itself. They also create a clean look, which is ideal in a small room or one decorated with lots of patterns. This type of flooring won’t compete with busy decor.
2. Dark and Gray Floors
If you’re seeking a modern look, dark or gray floors might be the perfect choice. Paired with light or white walls, dark floors create a striking effect like you might seen in a chic downtown loft or upscale art gallery. They also make an interesting departure from traditional wood flooring, which might appeal to you if you’re looking to shake things up.
3. Textured Wood
Bring the rustic charm of a farmhouse into your home with textured wood flooring. Planks that have been scraped and scratched have personality and tactile charm that can make any room feel inviting. And this type of flooring is great for homes with kids and pets, because any new scrapes will only improve its appearance.
4. Plush Carpet
On a cold Westchester day, curling your toes into soft plush carpeting feels amazing. It’s perfect for bedrooms, where people tend to walk around barefoot, and makes an especially cozy and colorful option for a kid’s room. Plush carpet makes a room feel inviting, so it’s also great for a family room or casual living room. But this flooring isn’t just for kid-friendly spaces: paired with ornate furniture and high-end upholstery, plush carpet can look opulent and lush.
