2018 Vinyl Flooring Trends

The coolest thing about this years vinyl flooring trends is the realistic looks. Not that long ago realistic wood or tile effect vinyl flooring was unheard of. Now, if you’re showed some current options, you’d never guess they were vinyl.

Wood look vinyl is just as realistic as wood look laminate, but with even less maintenance and even more versatility. The days of outdated 1980s vinyl are behind us and today you can find vinyl in shockingly realistic wood looks that will convince even the most serious skeptics.  Which means, with its waterproof capabilities and ease of maintenance, vinyl flooring is on the rise. And fast.

Wood look vinyl has also become increasingly popular for commercial use, due to the realistic look and the pure fact that unlike solid hardwood its not a maintenance nightmare.

Once upon a time, porcelain and ceramic tile were the only way to get a beautiful, realistic stone look. Just like wood-look vinyl, stone-look vinyl uses the same technologies to create looks mimicking gorgeous, timeless natural stone. You don’t have to pay a fortune for soft, porous marble! stone-look vinyl flooring has changed the game. For the better.

In 2017, colours were all extremes. Ultra dark, ultra light and not much in between. Except for every shade of grey. But then Grey is kinda special ūüôā

Going into 2018, those extremes are still holding strong. In fact, the lights are getting even more extreme with more white-washed beachy looks.

Homeowners are increasingly using flooring to set the tone or feel of their home. That means, we need more options! and manufacturers are responding with more beautiful colours than ever before.

Decor in 2018 is to be bolder than years before, with vivid jewel tones and luxury velvet and brass balanced out with organic accents.

Always stick with what you love, regardless of what in or out! but if your plan for 2018 is to refresh your home! whether a new coat of paint or a new flooring!¬†¬†Here are some floor ideas room by room to stay trendy in 2018…

With Jewel tones, dark cozy colours and ultra violet being the colour of 2018 along with emerald green meets sapphire, with vivid velvet sofa or jewel toned velvet throws, then a dark rich wood plank vinyl would set off the ambiance of the room., making it a warm welcoming space to relax in.

But be aware! Dark flooring can complement large area but can make small areas look even smaller.

Bedrooms and accent walls go hand in hand. You can plan the entire space based on that particular wall. A colour such as ultra Violet the colour of 2018 could be paired with a white ceiling, a wooden floor and some furniture in bright nuances like orange and coral or something more neutral like beige or grey.
