Choosing the right type of flooring for your home can be one of the most daunting home improvement decisions. Flooring trend experts and designers alike predict that hardwood flooring will continue to be a big trend in 2012.
The reason that hardwood flooring is so desirable is due to its versatility. Hardwood flooring works with contemporary and traditional design and everything in between. Its basic, elemental beauty is like harnessing the power of nature and bringing inside your home. Not only is hardwood durable, but it is very easy to “dress up”, if required.
Another big flooring trend for 2012 is expected to be the use of area rugs. Large, beautiful Persian rugs can easily become the centerpiece of a sitting room or office while a hand-knit DIY rug can add comfort to a nursery or childʼs bedroom.
If natural hardwood isnʼt in your budget, or you have reservations about the maintenance of hardwood, you may want to consider laminate flooring. Laminate flooring can offer the beauty of hardwood without the cost or maintenance factor. It is a great option if your home is built on a slab foundation and most laminate flooring choices come with a lifetime warranty.
