Planning to renovate or build new in 2017? As you may already have seen, the range of floor choices can be overwhelming. Don’t worry! Parabola Developments has researched the most current innovations in flooring and design. Consult below for our practical guide to the hottest 2017 trends.

SUSTAINABILITY

As with most industries, flooring manufacturers are exploring the exciting world of eco-conscious, “green” or sustainable materials. Carpet, wood, laminate– anything you can imagine is sure to have an environmentally friendly option. While priced a little higher than standard alternatives, there are still benefits such as the unique look of reclaimed wood flooring.

SCALE UP

Tile, laminate and other flooring built from individual pieces are already popular due to customizability and straightforward installation. In 2017 and beyond, larger formats are set to become the industry standard– especially large-scale ceramic tile. Even so, almost any floor option can match his look with the right design and material.

FUNCTION

From hobbyists to professionals, we can now customize our spaces down to the very last detail. Floors are no exception! Functional flooring like cork (sound dampening) or vinyl (wear- and moisture-resistant) are rising in popularity. In fact, “luxury vinyl” is a newer high-end option offering premium look and feel with all the durability of traditional vinyl.

VARIETY

Variety is the spice of life is an old saying, but it applies when it comes to flooring in 2017. No matter the size of your space or what you use it for– there are innumerable styles, colours, textures and materials available. Bamboo, finished concrete and modern carpet offer some of the widest range in choices.
As you can see, 2017 is bringing a new wave of flooring options to the consumer market. If you need further guidance, contact the pros here at Parabola Developments. Our staff is standing by, eager to help you pick the perfect floor for your new project.
