Ask any carpets and flooring expert about kitchen floor trends, and you’ll find that there are plenty to pick from. Many of these flooring options are things that people don’t consider. They usually stick with the tried and true, such as single colored tiles and even laminate. However, if you want your kitchen to be on-trend and look different from the others in your neighborhood, think about having one of these types of flooring installed.
When most people think of wood floors, they imagine it with a dark brown or deep red stained finish. In reality, there are plenty of options besides them, including pale wood. A pale colored wood can make the room look bigger. You’ll be impressed with how well it can tie all of your cabinetry together.
Painted wood goes a bit beyond giving your kids some acrylic and telling them to “go for it” while pointing at the floor. Instead, think of wood flooring that’s been painted one single color. It proves that your wood doesn’t need to be a traditional wood color, right? Even better, painted wood hides a multitude of scratches.
Herringbone Patterned Wood
This wood floor consists of several different types of wood that have been cut into small tiles and then installed in a herringbone pattern. You might even be able to buy whole tiled sections that already have the pattern applied, making it easier to install. If you want your kitchen to look a little less traditional, but not overly modern, then this is a good option.
Dark Or Light Stone
Stone floors can last for a very long time. On top of that, they come in several colors, including shades that are either dark or light. The results are a resilient kitchen floor that’s easy to clean. On top of that, the stone really elevates the space, giving it an air of luxury.
Wide Planks of Wood
Wood floors don’t need to consist of thin planks. Not when wide planks are an option. While this type of flooring won’t work in a small kitchen, as it will just make the space look even smaller than it already is, if you have a large kitchen, go ahead and tests out this trend. You’ll be happy that you did.
Tiles come in patterns these days. You aren’t stuck with the same, boring, monotone ones of yore. Instead, you can pick floral, geometric, or even whimsical patterned tiles that will add a sense of fun to your kitchen.
According to the people who know a lot about carpets and flooring, reclaimed wood is one trend that isn’t going anyway. This type of wood is environmentally friendly, as it consists of wood that has been previously used and then refinished. The results are a unique blend of striations, color variations, and signs of wear that make the wood look comfortable and homey. This is a great option for your kitchen!
