If you are anything like me, I try to look for classic looks over trendy ones. Although trends can catch my eye, and be often tempting, I am overall more satisfied with classic looks and styles. Some reasons why choosing a timeless/classic flooring style is that you will be saving money by not always changing to keep up with the ever-changing trends. Secondly, if you put the time and money into good-quality classic flooring, it will add great value to your home, and this will be beneficial when selling your home. Below I will dig into classic looks in each type of flooring to give you some ideas and direction into a timeless look for your home.
To start off with, hardwood is already a classic flooring choice!! Well-maintained hardwood will catch anyone’s eye. For a timeless look, I would opt for mid-range tones that are not too light or dark. Some classic wood colors are found in oak, maple, mahogany, pine, and ash.
Tile is a great choice for your home when you are looking for something that is durable, water-resistant, or waterproof! Because tile is a durable type of flooring, when choosing a timeless style, it will last for a very long time if properly maintained. Classic styles consist of neutral colours and soft patterns.
Vinyl is a great affordable route when choosing a timeless or trendy floor. Vinyl flooring is a lot newer compared to tile and hardwood as it was introduced around the mid-1900s. Today vinyl is made to be very durable and long-lasting. Because vinyl comes in a wide range of styles, choosing a style can be overwhelming! If you are looking for that timeless look, look for vinyl that mimics natural wood or stone.
Carpet is a great flooring choice when you are looking for a cozy feel. Neutral colours are always a common choice when picking out carpets. Carpet gives a great foundation for layering trendy rugs and other decorations.
Overall, your style is the best style, whether you are sticking with trends, timeless looks, or creating a space that reflects you! Ultimately, choose the colour that you like the most as you are the one living with it in your home. When you visit our showroom, we will be happy to assist you in any style you are looking for!
