Four Outdated Flooring Trends That You Need to Update ASAP

dog and cat enjoying the floorWhether you have carpet, wooden floors, or tile, your floors see a lot of traffic—from you coming home from work, your kids running around, pets trampling through the room. So it may seem like a bad idea to update your flooring. However, if you still have shag carpeting from the 70s, old and broken tile, or old, worn down wooden floors, the look and feel of your home may suffer. Not to mention that broken tile can be a nuisance and old carpet may be home to germs and bacteria. Updating to new flooring is always a good idea.

If you have one of these four outdated flooring trends, it’s time to upgrade!

Outdated Trend #1: Linoleum Flooring

Linoleum flooring is essentially fake wood floors that were incredibly prominent in the 70s and 80s, especially as wall paneling. While most homes have been stripped of this unsightly wall paneling, many are still stuck with outdated linoleum flooring. If your home is one of them, it’s time to update!

If you have linoleum flooring, updating to wood flooring is the most logical step.  

Outdated Trend #2: Shag Carpeting

Shag carpeting was a huge trend in the 70s but your home is stuck in the past if it still has shag carpeting. Not only is out of style, but it can also be full of germs and bacteria that can be harmful to your children and pets.

Your best bet? Upgrade to brand new carpet. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Outdated Trend #3: Parquet Hardwood Floors

Parquet hardwood floors are the floors with the small, lego-like wood pieces that are arranged in squares to mimic square tile flooring. This type of flooring rose in popularity over the past couple of decades but has quickly fallen out of fashion.

Try hardwood or tile floors for a more stylish, reliable look.

Outdated Trend #4: Small Tile

Small white and brown tile arranged in patterns used to be incredibly popular. Nowadays? Not so much. If your home has small tile patterns, it probably doesn’t look as good as it could.

Try upgrading to newer, more stylish tile. And if you’re tired of the tile look, hardwood floors should do the trick!
