1. Hardwood Flooring

The classic beauty of wood flooring always stays in style, and even with the ever-expanding luxury vinyl options, solid hardwood and engineered wood flooring will always be popular. The hardwood flooring manufacturers haven’t just sat back and allowed their competition to chip away at their market share; they’ve been busy expanding their product lines.  

Let’s look at some of the new hardwood flooring options in 2023.

Hottest Hardwood Flooring Trend: Texture

Distressed Hardwood Floors

Often confused for reclaimed flooring, the look of aged and distressed flooring is achieved through scraping and denting the boards. Using newer materials, this man or machine-made process is a great way to add a reclaimed look to a home.

Smooth Hardwood Floors

Often confused for reclaimed flooring, the look of aged and distressed flooring is achieved through scraping and denting the boards. Using newer materials, this man or machine-made process is a great way to add a reclaimed look to a home.

Wire Brushed Hardwood Floors

Wire-brushed flooring is just that – flooring treated with a wire brush to bring out deeper grains. Wire-brushed floors give the wood a more rustic and natural charm and highlight the character of the wood.

Reclaimed Hardwood Floors

Reclaimed hardwood flooring has become very popular in recent years as consumers shift towards more sustainable and eco-friendly mindsets. The wood is typically sourced from older structures such as mills or barns and is sanded smooth or left in its current state. Reclaimed flooring usually has scratches, dents, and chips, giving it a more natural look.

2. Luxury Vinyl Flooring

You’ve heard the term a thousand times. Increasingly popular luxury vinyl flooring has been steadily growing in popularity over the past three decades, and today there are countless choices available. Thicker than standard vinyl, luxury vinyl flooring contains multiple layers of material making it stronger and more comfortable to walk on. Luxury vinyl can be designed to mimic the look of hardwoods, tiles, or even stone and come in many shapes and colours.

Hottest Vinyl Flooring Trend – Wide Plan

Hottest Vinyl Flooring Trend – Wide Plan

Wide Plank Vinyl Flooring

Traditionally found in old homes on the East Coast, wide plank flooring has come back in recent years. With 5” to -20” wide widths, plank flooring gives any floor a feeling of grandeur. Best suited for long or wide rooms, wide plank flooring draws attention and makes a statement. With luxury vinyl flooring, you can get the wide plank look for a fraction of the cost of traditional wide plank hardwood floors.

3. Concrete Flooring

Hottest Concrete Flooring Trend – Stamped

Frequently referred to as textured or imprinted concrete, stamped concrete can replicate the look of stones, tile, brick, and wood. Few people would consider a concrete floor to be warm and attractive. Still, with today’s radiant heating technology and new concrete design techniques, you can have an interior concrete floor that is both. Sustainable, waterproof, stain-proof, and scratch-resistant concrete makes an excellent choice for low-maintenance flooring.

Hardwood Stamped Concrete Floors

With stamped hardwood concrete floors, you can get the look of hardwood flooring at a fraction of the cost and with all the benefits of concrete. With the ability to add custom colours, stamped hardwood concrete floors can mimic the look of almost any type of hardwood. Additionally, you can choose your plank size and grain pattern with various stamps available.

Tile Stamped Concrete

Like stamped hardwood concrete, the wide range of additives and colours allow stamped tile concrete to mimic almost any type of design – at a fraction of the cost. You won’t have to worry about cleaning dirty grout again.

4. Cork Flooring

Hottest Trend in Cork Flooring – Cork Plank

A sustainable option for hardwood flooring, cork flooring is available in many colours and designs. Manufacturers have created cork floors that mimic the stunning look of hardwood or marble while keeping cork’s benefits. The cushiony feel of cork floating floors helps to reduce stress on your back and legs, making them the perfect fit for places where you’d stand for long periods, like kitchens. Best of all, cork flooring is green and hypoallergenic.

Cork Plank

Cork Plank Flooring

Create a floor that mimics traditional hardwoods while retaining all the advantages of cork. With its soft and cushiony feel, cork plank flooring is an excellent choice for playrooms and nurseries. Consider a cork plank floor for a warm, attractive, economical, and eco-friendly material.
