Vintage has always been about nostalgia–bringing back the warmth and memories of decades past. In 2021, black and white tiles are making a strong comeback. It’s not the same old black and white tiles that adorn historic homes. Instead, it’s bold, graphic, and more luxurious. More and more homeowners want a unique twist to the vintage flooring style. This includes smaller tiles with bolder graphic patterns. This perfectly blends vintage with contemporary for the perfect look and feel.
Trend #6. Vinyl Flooring
Modern kitchen with bright colors and easy to maintain flooring.
Vinyl is very soft underfoot, so it is pleasant to stand on for extended periods. It is also warmer to the touch than hard surfaces like tile. Vinyl comes in several levels of gloss, which means you can buy a selection of looks.
Vinyl flooring can be purchased in sheets, planks, and tiles. Vinyl sheets usually are available in 6- or perhaps 12-foot-wide rolls. It’s available in a selection of designs and colors, including colors that mimic wood and tile. Some vinyl tiles could be grouted for a realistic look. Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) is mainly produced from limestone and costs lesser. Solid vinyl floor tile (SVT) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) have additional vinyl for greater functionality and a more practical look. Designed to strongly resemble hardwood, vinyl planks are available in similar size as timber planks, and also boast realistic attributes like texturing & beveled edges.
Vinyl is a good choice for rooms that receive plenty of visitors. It withstands water, and it does not easily dent, stain, and fade. It is quiet and comes in many designs and colors, and it is easy to install.
Trend #7. Graphic Tiles
For an eclectic vibe, choose a graphic tile that matches your personality.
Not many people are willing to use their flooring as an art canvas. But if you love unique and artful patterns on your tiles, graphic tiles are coming in full force. Using advanced technology, manufacturers are able to replicate an endless variety of images on tiles. You can get tiles with repeating patterns or get tiles that, like a jigsaw puzzle, join together to form one large pattern on your floor. Graphic tiles come in monochromatic colors but if you are feeling particularly wild, there are others that come in bold multicolored patterns and writings.
