Latest and trending carpets

Topping the list of trends this year are a host of color and design options. Natural wood and stone replication is a leading theme for hard surfaces this year, with appealing shades seen in laminate, vinyl and tile flooring designs. Wood look finishes that include imperfections are in demand, as are waterproof materials and textural treatments. This year’s colors range from rich espresso to honeyed blonde, with ash and grey hues making strong design statements.

The beauty of hardwood flooring brings a timeless sophistication to any room, delivering style and satisfaction for years to come. Eight-inch-wide planks and extended 72-inch boards are a strong design theme this year, as is the bold rustic look of farmhouse style. The texture is also popular for 2019, with distressed, hand-scraped and wire-brushed planks adding interest to hardwood layouts.

Artisanal colors driving design this season span the spectrum, whether your tastes run to the vibrant rich hues of mahogany or the light-catching appeal of golden pine. The whitewashed coastal design makes its way to our Arizona desert communities this season, providing a cool, sun-bleached look that’s on trend and inviting. Echoing nature’s palette, hardwoods blend organically to deliver a stunning backdrop to your home’s lines and furnishings. A consultation with Express Flooring’s design experts will assess your home’s style and function requirements and provide style and color recommendations to custom suit your lifestyle.

Natural Wood Floors:

Natural wood-look tops design trends and this year’s durable laminate flooring is enhanced with true-to-nature colors that echo the beauty of hardwood. Pattern trends embrace wider, rustic styles that mimic expensive hardwood products. Lighter wood tones remain strong, and texture is highly desirable in this season’s offerings. Classic herringbone and chevron designs are seen in both traditional and mixed-width plank patterns, features that add interest and high variation design elements. This affordable, easy-to-maintain flooring option, as beautiful as it is durable, remains a top choice for homeowners.

Organic looks in rich tones embrace the color palette, with classic greys and tawny taupes in the lead. Waterproof flooring is a desirable feature, lending enhanced wear resistance to high-traffic areas.
