If you are like most people, you probably take a good deal of pride in your home, and part of taking pride in your home is being sure that it looks its best. One of the best ways to make your home shine is to have beautiful flooring to compliment the rest of your home's decor.

Nobody wants their house to look stodgy and out of date. One surefire way to avoid this is by choosing the right floor. With this in mind, A+ Floors 4U would like to offer this quick guide to the hottest trends in laminate flooring for 2017. We're sure you'll see something you like! Let's have a look:

1. Reclaimed Wood Style Laminate

Though at first glance it appears the purpose of using reclaimed wood, recycling used wood and environmental consciousness, seems to be lost by using a synthetic alternative, the fact of the matter is that the look of reclaimed wood is also quite gorgeous. For this reason, people are clamoring for the less expensive alternative and choosing reclaimed wood style laminate flooring.

If you want a charmingly rustic and unique look for your floor, it's hard to beat this trend. The nuanced and varied appearance of the planks will add engaging complexity to your home's decor that you'll simply love.

2. Hand Scraped Style Laminate

Many of the hottest trends this year celebrate nuanced complexity and rustic, old-time nostalgia, and the hand-scraped look delivers in spades. The rise in popularity of these styles in laminate flooring mimics a similar rise in the popularity of hardwood flooring. The reason being that these styles are often more expensive than their hardwood counterparts.

With a hand scraped laminate flooring, your floor will appear rustic yet chic, with the bespoke look that only handcrafted goods can achieve. If you want your house to have a unique look that is both rustic and, paradoxically modern, this may be the look for you.

3. White Washed

Maybe you aren't looking for a rustic look. Maybe you want something a little lighter, a little more modern and bright. If that is the case, you might want to consider going with a whitewashed look.

This style is best suited for homes that are looking to achieve that "beachy" look. With whitewashed style laminate, you can evoke the feeling of a California beach house. If you're looking for open, airy, bright and cheery, this look is just the thing for you!
