- Luxury Vinyl Plank
Vinyl flooring has come a long way from the rolled vinyl in your grandmother’s kitchen. While it remains a budget choice, it is no longer a style liability. There are hundreds of samples to choose from in a wide variety of colors, textures and widths. Vinyl plank is kid friendly, pet friendly and water resistant. It’s highly recommended for wet areas such as mud rooms, laundry rooms and kitchens. It’s virtually indestructible and has been Flowers Flooring hottest selling product in 2017, so as a fall flooring trend, this is definitely one to check out.
- Dark Stained Floors
Dark floors are a perfect contrast with bright furniture and light-colored walls and our third fall flooring trend. Homeowners who like the look of less grainy wood, often prefer dark stained floors, as the grain is much harder to see. Dark floors create a more modern vibe, especially when mixed with light, bright furniture. The dark, uniform floor color also makes the room easier to decorate since there are fewer colors to clash with.
- Exotic Hardwoods
Exotic hardwoods such as Acacia, Brazilian Tigerwood, Cherry and Mahogany feature vibrant colors and unique wood grains that stand out and make the floor a centerpiece of the home. Exotic hardwoods capture the natural beauty of the outdoors and the natural materials. Exotic hardwood flooring generally offers a wider array of choices in regards to color, texture and hardness than traditional flooring options like oak or maple. In addition, exotic hardwoods tend to be harder than North American wood, making it more durable and on of the top fall flooring trends for this year.
- Gray Hardwood
Gray is certainly the new tan and it’s here to stay. The color gray is making its mark on furniture, bedding, wall coverings and now flooring. Gray is a flexible, neutral color that can go in any room of your home. And while you can purchase gray engineered hardwood, you can also refinish your existing solid hardwood in the perfect shade of gray for your home.

Carpet tile is gaining in popularity in both homes and businesses due to the fact that it’s easy to install, easy to clean and easy to replace. Carpet tiles are also extremely durable and versatile, and make great flooring options for businesses, kids playrooms, family rooms and basements. Carpet tiles are squares of carpet that fit together and come in various sizes including 12×12, 18×18 and 24×24 inches.
Unlike rolled wall-to-wall carpet, carpet tiles are cut into smaller square sizes, which make installing and replacing stained carpet tiles easy. If an area of carpet tile gets soiled and needs replaced, you will simply need to remove those specific carpet tiles and have new carpet tiles installed. You don’t need to replace the entire room of carpet.
As an added bonus, carpet tiles are easy to clean; you simply vacuum as you would with any carpet. Carpet tiles are usually low pile so they trap less dirt and debris. When your flooring professional orders your carpet tile, be sure they order extra, so that you have the extras on hand in the event you need to replace one.
Carpet tiles require less of a waste factor than wall-to-wall carpet, which will bring your material costs down. Utilizing carpet tiles also avoids awkward seams in the middle of any room, since they are individual tiles that can be cut to fit any space or angle, making them versatile in rooms with many turns and complex layouts.
Carpet tiles can be a colorful and creative way to add a touch of color and style to any room. You can even mix and match carpet tile colors.

Now that Spring is in full swing, many homeowners are spending more time outdoors and have turned their thoughts to how to improve their outdoor living space. If you are considering upgrading your patio with tile, there are thousands of options to choose from. Here’s a guide to help you select the tile that is right for your home.
Flowers Flooring first recommends thinking about how much light the space gets. If the space is dimly lit you will want to steer clear of dark tile that will further darken a dimly lit space. Also consider the kind of entertaining you do in the space and the amount of foot traffic the space will get. Flowers Flooring also recommends considering how wet the tile will get. Some tiles are more water resistant than others. Here’s a look at three tiles Flowers Flooring recommends for outdoor areas:
- Porcelain Tile – For the biggest bang for your buck, porcelain tile is certainly the way to go. It is also the most water resistant and requires very little maintenance. It is extremely durable, easy to clean and works great in outdoor spaces.
- Travertine Tiles – Travertine is a natural tile that has unique holes and textures. While travertine is beautiful, it does require regular sealing for outdoor use.
- Slate Tile – Slate is a great tile for outdoor use. It has rich colors and uneven surfaces that adds another level of design to your outdoor area. Slate can crack in freezing temperatures so if you live in a cold climate slate will not be a suitable option. Slate is also not as resistant to cracking as some other tile.
Now is the time to plan for patio renovation. Call Flowers Flooring today to schedule your FREE estimate – (704) 445-7750. Flowers Flooring also offers financing. Ask your estimator for more details regarding current financing promotions.
