When it comes to keeping your home up to date, few things are as important as flooring. No matter your design tastes, you need flooring that is durable and attractive, and that compliments the other features of your home. 

It’s also easy to get overwhelmed with the number of flooring options you have to choose from. That’s why the experts at Abbey Design Center are always ready to help you select the best option to fit your needs. 

You can always visit Abbey’s showrooms in Sterling or Leesburg to talk with our designers and get hands-on with samples of top-quality carpet, laminate, hardwood, tile, and other flooring materials. With that in mind, we’ve put together an update for you of the top flooring trends for 2020. Here’s a look at what to look for:

Hard Surfaces, Beautiful and Durable

Manufacturers of hard surface flooring such as wood, tile, vinyl, and laminate are continuing to come out with beautiful new options. What we are seeing in the coming year is a continuation of the trend toward using tile and vinyl to replicate beautiful natural surfaces, such as wood and stone.

For high-traffic areas, hard surfaces are being improved with qualities that make them even more durable. More waterproof vinyl options are becoming available, along with textures that simulate weathered or reclaimed wood.

Customers are looking for more flooring options that give the look and feel of more expensive natural surfaces, while providing the durability and easy care of a more budget-priced option. The number of choices continues to grow.

Carpet Gets More Creative

Carpet continues to be the most popular flooring option, and it’s no wonder, with the number of choices available in many different price ranges.

Manufacturers continue to explore different ranges in soft flooring, with new colors and textures introduced constantly. 

Manufacturers are responding to customer demand for carpet that is stylish, high-performing, and that complements their living spaces. As you can see in the Abbey Design Center showroom, manufacturers are meeting this demand with carpet options in a range of styles and price points.

High-Tech Hardwoods

While manufacturers of tile and vinyl are producing even more realistic simulations of natural wood surfaces, hardwood floor manufacturers are stepping up their game with wood material that is engineered to be waterproof, stain-resistant, and more durable.

A new trend in hardwood flooring is flooring manufactured with a stone-plastic composite core. This permits the product to be 100% waterproof, a feature not previously available with hardwood flooring. Now you can enjoy the look and feel of real hardwood, combined with the waterproof qualities of a manufactured product.
