Waterproof Core Flooring 2019 Trends
Waterproof Core Flooring is an extremely popular flooring option for 2019. Also known as luxury vinyl flooring and Wood Plastic Composite (WPC), this has become a go-to flooring material. Do you want a totally waterproof floor that’s also durable, easy to maintain and trendy? You’ve found it here. You’ll also get the beauty of natural wood in an extensive variety of surface looks and textures—and flooring that’s more versatile than laminate while also requiring less maintenance and being equally similar in look to the wood surfaces that inspire it.
Trending textures in 2019 are moving toward character and variation. These can give your interiors—residential and commercial—tremendous energy and a modern feel.
These planks resemble handscraped wood with long, deep scrapes and high variability among planks. That variation makes the floor appear unique and full of character.
With light scratches, this wood look is distinctive but smoother than handscraped WPC.
If you’re looking for an antique wood appearance to your floors, look to distressed WPC, with wormholes, scratches, burns and more.
Do you enjoy the chic look of stone, marble and slate? Then you’ll love the options available to you with WPC. From Travertine to veined marbles and sophisticated slates, there are multiple possibilities.
If you would like a little metallic sheen added to any of the other WPC flooring options, you’ll be right in the heart of WPC flooring trends for 2019.
To give your home a modern, industrial look, concrete WPC is a trend this year.
Light colors are especially trendy with Waterproof Core Flooring in 2019. Whitewashed, White Oak, Birch and Blonde are all popular this year, with each lending a spacious and airy feeling to rooms, whether small and residential or expansive and commercial. At the other end of the spectrum, you’ll find espresso is a popular dark for a modern, sumptuous atmosphere.
Concern over our environment and safety has led to increased interest in eco-friendly and sustainable WPC flooring options. Look for flooring that’s LEED certified, FloorScore certified, sustainably sourced, uses recycled wood or bamboo, and contains no-to-low formaldehyde adhesive.
Layouts & Patterns
Patterned looks in floors are still exceptionally popular in 2019.
This is a remarkably smart look that gives most spaces a lot of character and visual variety. Explore using long planks in 2019 and trying the herringbone pattern in entryways, halls and similar rooms.
Give your dining room or living room an additional pop of interest by laying your WPC planks at a diagonal. It’s an easy way to add a sense of movement to the space. Go a step further by using mixed width planks to really make a statement and emphasize the floor’s character.
Mixed Width Planks
To lend an upscale feel to your interior, try mixed-width planks. These will look unique while still having an air of sophistication.
Large planks will help create a sense of spaciousness, whether residential or commercial. You can choose from less formal plank designs like distressed or reclaimed, or more formal like marble.
