Trends across hard surfaces (wood, tile, vinyl and laminate) are extremely consistent in 2020. Hard surface manufacturers continue to push towards replicating natural wood and stone flooring trends. Carpet is kind of its own niche. But that doesn’t make it any less prominent in this year’s flooring trends.  In fact, carpet is still the most popular flooring option on the market, and like hard surfaces, manufacturers are making huge strides and technological advancements to produce never-before-seen carpet looks and trends.

There are lots of flooring trends going on this year. If you’d like a glance at the 5 hottest flooring ideas, here’s a quick rundown.
