New flooring installation in a Jacksonville, NC home

Flooring trends for 2021

Luxury vinyl flooring, in and of itself, is a trend because shoppers, who are buying up home improvement items in full force, are looking more and more for value. This product offers it all, with high-end designs to affordability, waterproof capabilities, and countless functional advantages. It is also a trend-within-a-trend, answering another craze: wood look floors, including luxury vinyl plank, laminate, and ceramic wood look tile. Seeing is always better, so come into Floors Galore, NC, your flooring company in Jacksonville, NC, to explore our inventory.

Wood-look tile

This is a great flooring alternative for the bath, combining the beauty of wood with the durability and waterproof capabilities of ceramic tile. Wood-look tile has the realistic look and texture of raised grains and comes in numerous colors, including the high variation. We can thank Inkjet Technology for this; similar to a computer printer, it has four ink jets that spray simultaneously, creating intricate patterns. This tile can be cut into planks of any size.

Tile trends

Walk into our flooring store, and you'll see a pleasantly shocking number of decorative tiles in every shape and size. Right now, mosaics, those tiny, highly decorative, often glass-coated, pebble-like pieces are trending for baths; they also, because of their size, have more grout lines, resulting in increased traction. Marble and encaustic look, the latter being intricate floral, geometrics, and Victorian patterns, as well as glamorous art deco and Moroccan-style designs, are also the rage.

Waterproof vinyl flooring: taking the industry by storm

This engineered version of luxury vinyl is thicker, more durable, and comes with a core that won't peel or ripple no matter how much water it's exposed to or for how long. It's just as stylish as hard-wearing with images taken digitally, textured appearances, micro beveling, and embossing.
