Categories: Flooring, Hardwood Floors, Vinyl Flooring | October 17, 2016
Much like fashion trends, interior design trends are always evolving and kitchen floors are not impervious to these changes. Unfortunately, replacing your floors every 2-3 months to match the latest kitchen floor trend is neither convenient nor economically feasible. So how can you ensure that your kitchen floors stay relevant in the dynamic interior design industry? Kingston Flooring recommends staying ahead of the curve with kitchen floors that are timeless in design, texture and colour. Although we would happily sell you a brand new kitchen floor every 2-3 months, we would much rather help you find a timelessly designed kitchen floor that will captivate your family and friends for many years to come. Here are three tips to staying ahead of the curve when it comes to kitchen floor trends.
Accent your kitchen floor with a well-balanced rug
Rugs are an easy and affordable way to accentuate your kitchen. There are many different options available for each type of flooring. They are a more affordable alternative to completely renovating your kitchen floors and can be rotated throughout the seasons so that they remain relevant. The only challenge with kitchen rugs is keeping them clean. Aside from this, a kitchen rug may just be the most underrated kitchen accessory for your home.
When it comes to colours, keep it simple
With kitchen floors, stick to simple colours that are capable of standing the test of kitchen floor trends time. Whether it be hardwood flooring, carpet flooring or any other type of flooring, keeping colours simple will actually allow you to keep your options open for new kitchen trends. With simple, neutral flooring colours, you will be able to continuously spice things up with kitchen accessories that will match your floors. You will also have many more options available when it comes to repainting your kitchen and remodelling its design. Because new kitchen floor trends are always coming and going, It’s always best to keep the expensive items such as kitchen floors timeless and simple. Use less-expensive kitchen accessories and updates like paint, tables and chairs to keep up with the latest trends.
Plan for the future
When choosing new kitchen flooring, don’t base it entirely off of your current kitchen’s design or theme. Assuming that you will be applying changes and that renovations could occur in the future, consider a type of flooring that is best suited to welcoming these future changes, no matter what they may be.
