Every year we share the trends in flooring that we are excited to see more of throughout the year. Many times, it’s high end European oaks or intricately pieced parquet that stand out. The looks are easy to fall in love with, but unaffordable for many. This year we are excited to see a more attainable flooring trend, wood alternative floors. Wood alternative flooring has gotten so much more realistic and creates a beautiful look with greater affordability and durability. Take a look!
In our Beach Front Project we used a wood-alternative luxury plank vinyl. Although vinyl floors have been around, the new versions are much thicker, of higher quality, and much more convincingly mimic the warm look of wood.
In this vacation rental home, the durable flooring makes sense because it effortlessly holds up to water and traffic. We used Paradigm Flooring Conquest Collection in the Chateau Colorway. So pretty.
Wood alternative flooring makes a lot of sense in a family home. Kids are hard on flooring and a durable floor relieves a lot of stress. We used the same line of luxury plank vinyl from Paradigm Flooring in our family-friendly Desert Oasis Project.
We think wood alternative flooring meets the needs of so many of our clients. We recently partnered with Hewn Floors to introduce a wood alternative floor that we are really excited about. It’s similar to luxury plank vinyl in durability, but instead of vinyl, the floors are created from stone to better capture the texture, dimension, and feel of traditional flooring. We are currently installing it in several projects and cannot wait to share the reveals with you.
For my line, I ensured that the dimensions and colors were the same as the wide plank look I like. Whether you want a weathered coastal look or a medium tone full of warmth, the collection has the right flooring for any project. Want to try them out? ! We have a giveaway going on this week over on Instagram! Check it out here.
The wood alternative trend is for those that love the organic look of hardwood, but need a more durable option that can hold up to kids, pets, water, or just general wear and tear. It’s a plus that for the most part they are also more affordable.
Check back soon to see how we are using this trend in our projects this year. We can’t wait to share!
