This New Year, we’re all looking for a fresh start –and what better way to signify new beginnings than with a brand new floor?

Maybe you’re looking to cleanse your 2020 palette by investing in brand new hardwood for your family room or you’ve finally decided to switch out the peeling laminate in your kitchen with a stunning luxury vinyl tile.

Lucky for you, our experts here at Flooring Canada have an inside scoop on what floors will be on this year’s style watch. You won’t want to miss out on these 2021 floor trends…

Grained Hardwood

This season, grained hardwood will be all the rage, with its bold texture elevating the status of any room in the house.

Floorcraft Heritage’s Hazelbaker Sliced Hickory White will make the perfect hardwood for your home, specifically the Satori styled planks which feature white weathered streaks and add a sense of history and character to your décor.

If you’re looking to install hardwood in the more accident-prone areas of your home, try Aquadura’s Oceana Estate Oak in Upland. This darker oak is designed with genuine, wire-brushed oak hardwood veneer made to elevate any room it’s installed.

Wide-Plank Luxury Vinyl

The convenience of luxury vinyl with its waterproof, kid proof and pet proof elements makes it a great choice for every lifestyle.

Luxury vinyl will continue to trend into 2021 with a focus on wide-planks and Galvanite’s Paramount Plank in Scree is the perfect on-trend LVP to install in your home. Featuring the authentic look of real wood with stunning detail, this Paramount Plank comes embossed in register and its wide plank showcases a light grey-infused hue.

If you’re looking for a darker shade of luxury vinyl in wide plank, try your hand at Down’s H20 Millbourne in Moss. This is another trendy choice with its aged-look of genuine reclaimed barnwood boasting natural brown hues.

Natural, Casual Carpet

2021 will be the year of casual carpet, beginning with all things natural and soft.

Looking to add a bit of color to your living room? Try Innovia Touch’s Hedon Plus in Soft Sage where silky smooth texture meets a soft natural green to bring in a bit of nature. The best part of this carpet is that it’s got built-in stain resistance designed to handle your family’s toughest spills.

Another stylish carpet choice is Resista 3.0’s Swagger in Pennicott featuring a multi-tonal, striated patterning influenced by nature.

Resista 3.0’s Life of the Party in Corporate is also trending this year with its loop-cut-loop construction designed to complement any room in your home.

This green-rated carpet is perfectly suited to enhance your décor scheme with its beautiful patterning.
