2019 Flooring Trends


This year,  the trends are all about natural looks. In the other trend posts, they talk a little about some fun new looks popping up mimicking fabric, metallic, concrete and more.

But, when it really comes down to it, the flooring trends with the most longevity are traditional, natural looks, such as wood and stone.

Wood-Look Flooring

Okay, truly, this is Nothing new. Wood and wood looks have been popular in the home for ages. They just weren’t accessible to everyone.

Solid hardwood flooring is expensive, finicky and not ideal for families, pets or areas where there will be a lot of moisture, like kitchens, bathrooms and basements. While solid hardwood is still widely sought after in the kitchen, homeowners are beginning to discover all kinds of gorgeous options that rival solid hardwood’s sharp looks.

And, no, I’m not just talking about laminate. Laminate is old news. Still popular, but old news.

I’m talking about luxury vinyl planks, specifically WPC waterproof vinyl planks. And wood-look ceramic and porcelain tile. These two little gems are perfect for the high demands of even the craziest home.

With these new durable and waterproof wood looks, you can achieve any trending wood style in any room of the house, worry-free.

Stone-Look Flooring

This trend is also not really new. Natural wood and stone looks are increasingly becoming more popular due to their surge in accessibility.

For example, most people can’t afford straight up marble flooring. The truth is, natural materials are expensive. But! Now you can achieve these gorgeous stone looks without the price tag.

2019 Trending Floor Colors

While you’ll still see plenty of the dark espresso floors in 2019, the trends are changing with a focus on light, airy looks and moving towards warmer tones.


You’ll see lots of blondes and whites, but gray is still going strong, too.

Gray Flooring

Five years ago, you could have called the gray trend new or up-and-coming. But now? Is it even a trend anymore?

Well, if by “trend” you mean popular and relevant, then heck, yes! But it definitely is not a fad.

Gray flooring, particularly gray wood, has grown exponentially over the last decade. Although gray tiles, particularly in stone looks, are also very popular.

Gray has quickly become the most popular trend, not just for flooring, but for kitchens and homes in general. Gray cabinets, gray doors, you name it. And every shade of gray is still hot and trendy in the kitchen. For your floors and decor.

In addition to looking chic and trendy, gray floors set the tone of a cool, contemporary home. They give you a neutral backdrop for decorating in virtually any color. Aquas, greens, bright bold colors or even black and white – they will all go with your sleek gray flooring.

Blonde Flooring

For years, lighter floors were viewed as outdated or inexpensive. That is no longer the case. Not by a long shot!

As more homeowners embrace the light, airy feel in their home, you will see a huge resurgence in blonde wood (and wood-look) floors. Blonde floors, in particular, can give you that light timeless feel.

With blonde wood and wood looks, your decorating possibilities are endless. You can go for a chic, contemporary feel or a rustic, homey vibe. All without changing your floors.

The open, light, airy look is especially popular in modern kitchens. Homeowners are now steering away from sharper, modern, industrial looks and trending towards an updated farmhouse style. Light floors are perfect for this!

Contrary to ultra-dark espresso looks, blonde floors make your room feel larger and more open, especially if you use trending large planks.

White Flooring

You’ll see sparkling marble-look pure whites and beachy, white-washed wood looks.

White-Washed Wood Look Flooring

The whitewashed look is more of a west coast / California trend that is starting to spread across the country. Well, some parts.

As that relaxed, California vibe is spreading, so are the floors that come with it. And white-washed wood and wood looks are at the top of the list.

In addition to the California, beachy look, whitewashed tile floors are also excellent for the now-trending farmhouse style homes, particularly in the kitchen.

Whitewashed wood floors typically show the appearance of wear with the darker colors peeking out from underneath. It fits right in with the 2019 aged and worn trends happening across all styles of flooring.

Whitewash will make your home look brighter, bigger and more relaxed. It can give that “beachy” feel or also an upscale contemporary feel, depending on the rest of your decor.

Traditional White Flooring

Bright white ceramic and vinyl tiles are super hot in the home. In 2019, the theme is contrast. You will see luminous whites contrasting dark, espresso cabinets. Or, white tiles setting the backdrop for a bright, colorful decor.

The marble-look trend is going to be huge in 2019, especially in kitchens, bathrooms and commercial spaces.

White floor tiles instantly make your room look bigger, especially if you use large format tiles. Put these tiles in a room with lots of natural sunlight for a truly special look.

A great thing about choosing white flooring is you have so many options for furniture and decor.  Is there anything that doesn’t go with white? I don’t think so.

Honey Flooring

Just a step darker than trending blonde, warm, rich honey wood looks will be taking 2019 by storm. Even just the sound of the word “honey” as it rolls off your tongue sounds wonderfully rich and cozy, don’t you think?

Honey floors are still light enough to give you many of the benefits of blonde looks, making your room look larger and more open. But, you also get that nice, rich warmth that comes from a slightly darker tone.

Warm tones will be trending across the flooring market in 2019 and, if you go the warm route, I would absolutely recommend a honey wood or wood look. To be frank, the trends often drift back and forth between warm and cool tones. However, honey wood is not just a trend; it’s a color classic.

High Color Variation Flooring

High color variation is trending in wood (and wood looks) as well as tile. Wood looks typically feature color variation between planks, whereas high variation in tile typically refers to the amount of color variation in each individual plank.

Homeowners love the natural, rustic look that higher color variation provides. In nature, stone and wood aren’t so uniform; there are all kinds of inconsistencies.

Now, with modern technology, you can achieve these more random, natural looks with laminate, vinyl, engineered wood, ceramic tile, you name it! This makes your floor more of a statement piece and tends to pair best with a simple but contemporary decor.
