Laminate Flooring Trends for 2018


Laminate continues to be one of the best wood-look hard surface floorings on the market today for residential homes. With new technology coming out at an ongoing rate, laminate looks more like real solid hardwood flooring than ever before.


For the most up to date look for 2018, some of the most popular colors are going to be dark espresso, gray, blonde, whitewashed, and honey. The trend also sees a high variation of dark and light combinations, with extremes between the two.


As for looks, smooth floors continue to be very popular. However, even though they are smooth, they can have the appearance of being rustically hand scraped, reclaimed, weathered, or even distressed. In fact, as 2018 progresses, it looks like the textured look is only going to get more popular, with an emphasis on the distressed look.


When it comes to patterns and layouts, herringbone, diagonal and wide and mixed width boards, are currently the going trend. Homeowners are enjoying the possibilities that laminate affords them in being able to get creative. Fun patterns in widths that are a bit less than conventional are a total showstopper, turning your floor into a statement rather than a décor element.
