Luxury Kitchen Flooring Trends in 2016

Whether you want to completely renovate your kitchen for a stunning new look, or want to update just your floor, there are numerous gorgeous options. Let’s explore some stylish choices that help to create the kitchen of your dreams.

Kitchens these days are often sporting beautiful hardwood floors. One delightful surprise about this development is the incredible variety now available. Besides the classic oak, maple and heart pine, there are also new color trends to consider. For example, whitewashed hardwood flooring looks fabulous with a more contemporary styled kitchen. Ditto for gray hardwood! Muted gray is a very on-trend color choice in the kitchen for 2016. Blonde hardwood leans a little more towards traditional but is still fresh and bright while maintaining a more classic feel. Interesting choices include maple wood, red oak flooring and white oak flooring.

No matter your choice, you win.  Hardwood floors have stood the test of time because they are durable, easy to clean and visually stunning, so it’s not surprising to see DecoratorsWisdom.com sharing that these floors have overtaken tile floors in popularity.

Luxury kitchen flooring choices can include vinyl options that look like fine oak or polished marble, according to Scott Humphrey, chief executive of the World Floor Covering Association. Newer vinyl uses photo technology that can mimic other materials closely.

Here’s an overlooked element to flooring choices: the finish. Which one should you choose? Consider satin, which DecoratorsWisdom.com calls “both practical and beautiful; it hides footprints, dirt and scratches and it’s pleasing to the eye. It’s been trendy for quite awhile now, and we expect the trend to carry over into 2016 and beyond.”

One more consideration. According to the World Flooring Covering Association, reports Improvenet.com, “natural looks showcasing textures and grains are going to be popular trends in the floor remodeling department.”
