With a new year right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the changes you want to make – not only in your life, but also throughout your home! Here at Floor Coverings International La Jolla, we believe that there’s no better way to freshen up your home for the new year than by upgrading your old floors! Check out our top flooring picks for Clairemont homeowners in 2018 below.

Luxury Vinyl Flooringluxury vinyl clairemont

Luxury vinyl was one of the most popular floors of 2017 and it’s sticking around for the new year. Luxury vinyl flooring comes in stone-look tiles or wood-look planks that are interlocking and can be installed above existing flooring. This means that luxury vinyl is hassle free and easy to install. However, this unique flooring innovation has a number of other benefits that land it on our list.

Luxury vinyl looks strikingly similar to its natural stone or hardwood counterparts, making this a stylish option for any homeowner. Luxury vinyl is more affordable than real wood and stone, and it’s much easier to maintain. To top it off, luxury vinyl is very durable and water resistant. This makes it a hassle free flooring option for pet owners or families with messy kids. Freshen up your home with practical, beautiful, luxury vinyl this new year!

Cork Flooring

Cork is another flooring material that homeowners have been turning to more frequently over the years. However, cork provides a vast set of benefits that not many other floors can offer. For starters, cork flooring is very eco-friendly. It is made from a readily renewable resource, it is biodegradable, and since it is such a great insulator it helps homeowners cut back on electricity use.

Aside from being so earth-friendly, cork is also very cushiony underfoot. This makes it a great choice for rooms where you spend a lot of time standing, like the kitchen. Cork is also antimicrobial and hypoallergenic, making it a comfortable alternative to carpet for homeowners with allergies. These factors, in combination with cork’s natural, earthy tone, make cork a soothing and refreshing choice for the new year.

Wide Plank Hardwoodhardwood clairemont

If staying on trend is your goal for 2018, then wide plank hardwood is the floor for you. Long, wide planks (typically 5 inches or wider) have been taking over the hardwood scene as the preferable style. Wider planks allow for the natural look of the wood to show through, as they showcase intricate graining and knots.

Gray, dark, and blonde stains are popular hardwood colors. Light, blonde colors brighten a room while hiding scratches and dings. Dark wood stains provide a warm, sophisticated look that will make a statement for years to come. Gray colored wood has been in style for a while, and it remains a popular choice for its cool, clean, modern appearance.
