Flooring Trends For Your Bathroom and Kitchen You Can't Ignore

You’re always stepping all over them. Your kitchen and bathroom floors deserve some respect.

Maybe they’re in dire need of an update. Old, grimy tiles or washed out, warped wood? Yeah, that’s not the stylish look you are going for!  Take that dirty rug off your floor you’ve been using to hide your tiles, and get renovating. You’ll be glad you did.

These flooring trends will inspire you to finally make a change. They’re the styles that rose to the forefront during the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. You’ll be up to date for years to come if you take the plunge and add some style to your floors today. So take a little look downward for the trends you’re looking for.


Contrast is King

It’s a trend that’s been around since there were kitchen and bathrooms: contrasting colors. Choosing light and dark hues for your floor that contrast with the rest of the space is a great way to use flooring to your advantage, and create intrigue for your area.

You can choose to get a light floor if you have darker paint on the walls or vice versa. This use of contrast will create a focal point and provide clean lines in your room.

You can also choose to contrast your actual flooring tiles themselves. Using light and dark hues in the tiles or the wood of your flooring is a popular avenue for flooring decisions. It will give your area improved texture - you’ll be able to ditch those rugs altogether, if you wish.


Grey all the Way

The name of the color game this year is grey. Choosing pleasant gray tones can actually help warm up an area in a subtle way, particularly if you choose grays with red and orange undertones.

They also contribute to a more natural, earthy feeling living environment. As opposed to stark blacks or whites, the middle ground can create a comfortable feeling throughout the space, and easily give off an organic vibe.

If you choose grays that are more mixed with browns, the look becomes even more organic. Wooden flooring with gray hues is a rustic, weathered look that will make the kitchen, in particular, evoke a homey feel.


Trending Texture

Gone are the days where you just have boring, white tiled floors. Texture is trending, and with it comes more intricate flooring designs specifically created to catch the eye.

Chevron and Herringbone layouts for floors are taking center stage. You can also consider diagonal flooring patterns, and patterns with mixed widths to really cause a disruption in the pattern that will draw the interest of the eye. You can achieve all these textures with wood, stone, and tile alike.



As the years go on, people are becoming more environmentally conscious about the materials they choose to source for home renovations. Because of this, kitchen and bathroom flooring are being reimagined in all sorts of ways. One of the forerunners? Cork.

Using organic materials like linoleum and cork can set your kitchen or bathroom apart from the crowd. Cork flooring is a boldly textured design that somehow strikes a balance between contemporary and retro and can withstand the test of time from stepping on it over and over again.
