As the new year approaches, it’s time to start thinking about ways to freshen up your Mayfield home for 2018. Here at Floor Coverings International Cleveland East, we think one of the best ways to do that is by updating your floors. Check out our favorite flooring ideas for 2018 below!

Cork Flooringcork flooring mayfield

Cork has been growing increasingly popular amongst homeowners over the years for many reasons, but mostly because it is very eco-friendly. Cork is a renewable and biodegradable resource that helps homeowners cut back on electricity use. Thanks to its airy structure, cork serves as a wonderful insulator, meaning that it will help to maintain your home’s internal temperature, in turn helping you to cut back on your electricity usage.

This airy structure also lends cork to being very confortable underfoot. This makes cork a great choice for rooms where you spend a lot of time standing, like the kitchen or office. Finally, cork provides a unique, earthy look that many homeowners find aesthetically pleasing. Freshen up your home this year with a floor that is not only uniquely stylish, but also eco-friendly!

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Like cork, luxury vinyl flooring is growing in popularity. In fact, this was one of the most popular flooring choices amongst homeowners in 2017. However, we don’t expect this flooring innovation to phase out any time soon. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it became a household staple!

Luxury vinyl comes in stone-look tiles or wood-look planks. It mimics these real floors so well that it can be hard to tell them apart. However, luxury vinyl is more comfortable underfoot than tile, more water resistant than wood, and is more affordable than either of these natural floors. Plus, luxury vinyl is easy to install, as it comes in interlocking planks or tiles. This beautiful, practical, and durable flooring choice could be the ideal way to freshen up your entryway, kitchen, or basement for 2018.

Wood-Look Tilewood-look tile mayfield

Luxury vinyl wasn’t the only hardwood alternative that took homeowners by storm in 2017. Wood-look tile became a favorite amongst busy families and pet owners thanks to its easy maintenance, durability, and water resistance. Wood-look tile is simply ceramic or porcelain tile that is printed to look and feel like real hardwood. It is installed like regular tile but looks like a wood plank floor!

If you want 2018 to be a year of efficiency, then wood-look tile could be your floor. Unlike hardwood, wood tile is easy to maintain. It does not require special cleaners or refinishing but can be kept in shape with a regular sweeping and occasional mopping. You won’t have to worry about pets or high heels scratching a wood-look tile floor. Spills and accidents won’t be a problem either, as wood-look tile is just as water resistant as regular ceramic or porcelain.
