Now that 2018 is officially over, it’s a great time to look back on the flooring projects we’ve completed in Avon Lake and the surrounding area. Here are a few of the most popular flooring styles of 2018:


Dark Hardwood Flooring in Avon LakeWide Plank Hardwood Flooring:


With superior durability and beauty, hardwood remained the gold standard in flooring in 2018 and continued to be a popular choice among homeowners in Westlake, Avon Lake, & Avon, OH,Bay Village, Rocky River, Olmstead Falls. Wide plank flooring was a particularly popular choice due to its ability to make rooms appear more expansive and to provide a backdrop suitable for any interior decor. Dark browns, greys, black, and antique whites are exceptionally well suited at this and topped the list of the year’s most popular colors.


Wood-Look Flooring:

Many homeowners also opted for less expensive materials that delivered the same appearance. Varieties of tile, luxury vinyl, and laminate flooring that simulate the wood-look were all popular choices. Homeowners were especially delighted with the ability of these types of flooring to create the reclaimed look that was so trendy in 2018. Extra-wide plank widths combined with hand-scraped and worn textures helped deliver this rustic touch.  And because most of these flooring styles are water resistant, the look was frequently extended to rooms that see a lot of moisture, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms.


Geometric Patterns:Ceramic Tile Flooring in Avon Lake


Flooring that incorporated geometric patterns were also fashionable in 2018. Wood-look tile installed in a herringbone pattern is one example of how geometric patterns were used to create a sophisticated look that still allowed other design features like furniture and area rugs to stand out as the focal points in the room. Bolder, more complicated designs, featuring high degrees of contrast were also popular among homeowners who wanted their flooring to make a more striking impact on the appearance of a room.
