Flooring advancements in technology have really answered the demand for waterproof flooring. Many different flooring options come with their own sets of pros and cons; however, a considerable drawback for many flooring options is not being able to withstand wet environments. That being said, we are seeing flooring like vinyl planks, carpet, and even laminate coming in waterproof options, such as Mohawk’s RevWood. This feature can allow you a significant variance of flooring selections in your home in 2020.
High Variation Hardwood
A newer trend in the flooring industry is a high variation of colors and sizes in planks in hardwood. Hardwood is already desirable for its wide variety in character. Now, homeowners and businesses are allowing the most durable wood flooring to be even more expressive with high variations of colors and sized planks being mixed together in a single room installation.
We saw grey rule the market for some time over the last decade. It came in as the neutral color choice that pushed out beige tones as the highest demand choice.

It is becoming quite popular in the flooring industry, showing both interest in the colors beige and grey.
