Plus, important questions to ask yourself when choosing resilient flooring.
If the idea of a spring remodel brings you equal parts intrigue and dread, we’re here to change that. Resilient flooring options from Beautifully Responsible® partners provide many options that fit both your budget and personal style, alongside your priorities for choosing sustainable products.
Resilient flooring is a durable type of flooring that can be made of flooring types like rubber, linoleum, cork, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), and sheet vinyl, among others. Resilient flooring is becoming increasingly popular in homes across the country thanks to the incredible solutions it brings to homes just like yours. Not only are Beautifully Responsible® floors designed with indoor air quality and other important performance factors in mind, but they’re also built to stand up to the rigors of life, every day.
Resilient flooring comes in tons of styles for every taste, but how do you know what to ask for? Let’s explore the top 5 home flooring trends for 2023 and share tips to help you create a tailored space at home you never want to leave!
Trend 1: Classic hardwood look, but with a resilient twist
Best suited for: your kitchen, dining room, hallway, home office
Hardwood designs create a timeless foundation for your home with the ability to evolve with your tastes. When you go the resilient flooring route, you’ll find design options for everything from dramatic walnut to stately mahogany at a more affordable budget.
And it’s called ‘resilient’ for a reason. Technical attributes like durability and moisture resistance are just a few of the performance benefits you get when you choose Beautifully Responsible® floors.
“How easy is it to install this model?”
Resilient flooring types like luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank tend are modular and can be DIY-friendly, so you can replace one unit without replacing the whole floor. Not that you will need to do this due to the durability of the product, though! Plus, you can play with Chevron configurations, which are popular this spring remodel season.
Trend 2: Modern stone-look flooring
Best suited for: your bathroom, kitchen, dining room, mudroom
When it comes to resilient home flooring, stone style designs don’t just look sturdy, they’re super durable. For example, slate-inspired tiles can add effortless class and character to high-traffic rooms that are cleaned often.
Stone-look resilient flooring gives your floors a stronger ability to adapt to rooms like the kitchen and bathroom, which often see fluctuations in temperature and moisture.
“How durable is this model?”
Look for a floor that’s suited to expected foot traffic. For example, rigid core flooring is one of the fastest growing categories of resilient flooring because of its comfort, durability, and water-resistant varieties.
Trend 3: Large format tiles to welcome you home
Perfect for: your kitchen, mudroom, laundry room, basement
Functional rooms like the kitchen are often the heart of the home, where people meet to share the adventures of their day.
Large format tiles, like the sheet vinyl category of resilient flooring, can create the illusion of space in rooms where you spend a lot of time and make them appear more expansive, but that’s not the only benefit.
Resilient home flooring installations are resistant to scratches and stains in homes with small children and pets, and are always easy to clean without the need for harsh chemicals. And, there’s no grout to maintain!
“How stain-resistant is this model? Is there a waterproof version?”
Resilient flooring stands out in rooms like the kitchen and laundry room that see a lot of dirt, moisture, movement, and accidental spills! Many varieties have water-resistant and waterproof varieties. With its larger dimensions, sheet vinyl is also a great starting point to find the look you’re after.
Trend 4: Statement designs to pull it all together
Perfect for: your kitchen, basement, laundry room, mudroom, bathroom
Just like a statement piece ties together the perfect outfit, a nice statement floor can make an impressive focal point for your dream home.
With statement designs from Beautifully Responsible® partners, the possibilities are endless—but it’s a great idea to start with the styles that appeal to you. Resilient flooring types like rubber, LVT, and sheet vinyl can also come with a textured surface.
“Do you have designs that fit [preferred style]?”
Pro tip: Search for styles like Bohemian, Farmhouse, Mid-Century Modern, Minimalist Zen, Scandinavian, and more using the ‘decors’ filter in our Design Inspiration section.
Trend 5: Cozy spaces
Perfect for: your family room, bedroom, hallway, basement
If you found that perfect statement rug, resilient flooring creates an ideal foundation underneath.
Many resilient floors are built to provide comfort underfoot. Many Beautifully Responsible® floors can absorb sounds and make spaces accessible for all levels of mobility.
“How does this flooring product protect the air quality in my home?”
With indoor air quality more important than ever, look for third-party labels like FloorScore® to identify tested and proven solutions for your home.
