Here are a few of the hottest trends in the flooring industry right now. These new flavors and designs will certainly spruce up your house.

The customer acknowledges the necessity of utilizing recycled products and are finding these products can be used for flooring. Cork is rapidly getting a common option for that “hardwood-like” appearance. Some businesses are actually recycling products such as wine barrels and wood palettes to generate a vintage feel.
• Biodegradable Products: People are also starting to see the harm of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). VOC's negatively affect the air quality of your house by releasing carcinogens into the air. Some flooring manufacturers have recognized this and have been making use of biodegradable products in different types of flooring.

• Bigger Tiles: Generally, tiles – like those you can get at “big box” store – measure 12’ x 12’. This dimension will work in many instances, but the style of today for tile is 24’ x 24’ - double the length and width of the normal tile! These tiles are beautiful, have smaller grout lines, and generally are much easier to get clean.
