Don't Even Think of Renovating Before Seeing These Top 2018 Flooring Trends

No matter how much attention you pay to your décor, it may never look exactly right if the bones of the room aren't thoughtfully designed. This is something we easily overlook when moving into a new space. We take the floors, the moldings, and the hardware for granted—but all these details can be altered if you're willing to go through a cosmetic renovation. And while a great rug will help hide ugly floors, it will never compare to really getting the floors you truly want. It also won't help improve the value of your home like new flooring will.

Are you considering replacing your floors in 2019? There are a ton of factors to consider. First, are your existing floors salvageable? Quality hardwood floors can often be fixed with a good sanding, a new finish, or even a coat of paint. If you're dead set on replacing your flooring altogether, consider whether you want a hardwearing option for high-traffic areas or if an elegant look and feel are more important. To help you make the best decision possible, we rounded up some of our favorite flooring trends of 2018. Beware—you may find yourself renovating sooner than you think.
