Love is officially in the air on the Crystal Coast! There’s lots to love about the life you’ve built with your special someone and when it comes to home renovations, we know that it can be a major labor of love.

Read on for the latest flooring trends of 2022 and how one of Eastern North Carolina’s most trusted flooring companies can help you select the flooring of your dreams!
Hard Surface Flooring
Hard surface flooring has become even more popular in recent years. Flooring like luxury vinyl planks, engineered hardwood, and tile have a longer lifespan than regular carpet, and many are lower maintenance and easier to clean. In areas like Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, and Emerald Isle, this type of flooring can be a lifesaver when cleaning up water and sand in the summer. Even better, many of these surfaces can easily mimic natural materials for a fraction of the price tag.
Replicate the Natural Look with LVP
Similar to recent flooring trends, many homeowners are gravitating to a more natural look in 2022. Natural styles like stone and wood have a more timeless look than the patterned vinyl of the past. There are many flooring options that can replicate the look of stone or wood, including LVP and engineered hardwood. Aged looks for hard surfaces like hand scraped, wire brushed, and distressed textures add to the natural appearance of many hard floor surfaces.
Keep It Cool with an Area Rug
Cool tones, lights, grays, and high variations are trending flooring color pallets. Some are opting for cool gray or blonde flooring, and others are choosing flooring with color variations similar to that of natural hardwood. If you don’t think you’re ready to commit to keeping it cool, we recommend using an area rug to achieve those cool tones. If you’re not sure which area rug would best fit your needs, stop by our showroom! We strive to maintain one of the largest area rug selections in Eastern North Carolina.
Patterned Flooring Installations
One of the newest flooring trends of 2022 is a patterned layout of plank flooring. Some are keeping it simple and are selecting large or wide planks, while others are choosing to install their flooring in a herringbone or chevron pattern. If you’re choosing to redo your floors before selling, we recommend that you practice caution when choosing patterned installations because they might not cater to a large audience. As always though, we encourage you to choose the flooring that makes the most sense to you and your tastes!
