2019 flooring trends for real people

Published: January 24, 2019

When it comes to home remodeling projects, Houzz and Pinterest are endlessly wonderful resources.

Who doesn’t love spending an evening after work using those social networks to find new sources of inspiration? In just a few clicks, you can get instant access to a vast archive of beautifully-styled photos—from users across the world—that bring the latest design trends to life. (It can be even more fun to imagine what some of those popular styles might look like in your home!)

The best 2019 flooring trends are the ones that will add value to your home

Unless you have an endless renovation budget, though, it’s usually a prudent idea to find less permanent ways to get the look you love that’s causing a buzz. After all, your floors are the literal foundation of your home.
One year later after your remodeling project is complete, it will always be easier (and cheaper) to deal with regret over furry, ochre throw pillows than face the sickening reality that you no longer adore your downstairs bathroom’s trendy, orange Moroccan tile floors.

Buying new floors is a significant investment that will shape the look of your home for years, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise and choose flooring that isn’t stylish.

It’s all about finding the right balance.

Interior design trends come and go, which is why—when choosing new floors—it helps to figure out which looks are your best bets for adding long-term resale value to your home.

What’s hot (and timeless): 2019’s best flooring trends

Bigger is better

Narrow strips aren’t nearly as popular as they used to be. Many homeowners are making their rooms look less cluttered and more spacious with easy-to-install, longer and wider plank flooring, available in materials like solid hardwood, luxury vinyl, and even tile.


Today’s manufacturers offer many different kinds of products grown—and produced—here in the United States, making it a great time to remodel if you’re concerned about investing in USA-made flooring, whether you want hardwood, tile, laminate, or luxury vinyl.

All together now

Mixing-and-matching is one style that’s here to stay. A bathroom tile backsplash that melds gloss with matte? No problem. A transitioning from hand-scraped hardwood in your family room to stain-finish tile in your kitchen? It’s a-okay. Gone are the days when everything has to be matchy-matchy. So, go ahead and make thoughtful combinations to create the look you want.

Feeling hot hot hot

When it comes to bathrooms, warmth is “in.” Yes, things are definitely heating up in powder rooms across the country as stylish options for radiant tile flooring increase in both affordability and availability. Learn more about how to add comfort to your bathroom floors »

Waterproof and worry-proof

Gone are the days when tile flooring was your only resilient, durable choice for areas with lots of moisture (and spills were likely). In 2019, homeowners have a wide range of water-resistant options in laminate, luxury vinyl, and even carpet.

Getting what you want

In 2019 and beyond, it’s going to be about personalization because customer service never goes out of style because it’s hard to be disappointed by your flooring investment if you choose distinct flooring that speaks to you (and suits your lifestyle, budget, and needs).

All of which means—with so many choices on the market—finding the best solution for your project can be trickier than ever if you don’t have an in-depth knowledge of flooring products. That’s one reason why homeowners can’t go wrong by taking advantage of Kermans’ complimentary design service before they start any home remodeling project.
