The Top 10 Flooring Trends for 2019

Floors

Going Green

Throughout the entirety of the home, natural, recycled and materials obtained from sustainable sources will be big in 2019. Options like cork, bamboo, reclaimed wood and engineered wood are proving to be popular choices. Cork, for instance, is non-toxic and taken from the bark of the cork oak tree. “These trees grow along the border of the Mediterranean Sea and can regenerate after every harvest. In fact, cork trees can live up to two centuries,” say the experts from Floor Critics. “The first harvest takes place when the tree is approximately 20 years old. Subsequent bark removal occurs every 9 years—up to 15 times per lifetime. Farmers take great care not to damage the tree by using a specially designed hatchet to strip the bark without disturbing the inner layer.”

We’ll show you everything you need to install a cork floor. Cork flooring is a natural, renewable product that’s easy to install yourself with basic tools.
