What are the trends in waterproof flooring?

There are four waterproof flooring options, so we will address this according to the type of floor to which you are referring. Waterproof floors include waterproof vinyl flooring, luxury vinyl, tile, and waterproof laminate.

Luxury vinyl

This is constructed with entirely waterproof materials to be submerged or spilled on with no damage.

As for style, it offers nature-inspired, true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile taken with high definition photography, so they're clear and vibrant with knots, swirls, veining variations, and bright colors and patterns. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks.

Luxury vinyl follows all the trends, so whatever is trending in wood, such as light colors, textures, blond, honey/copper shades, whitewashed, gray, and greige floors, fumed or smoked finishes, patterns such as chevron and herringbone, and wide planks will be found in LVF.

Stone looks include marble, granite, quartz, terrazzo, and travertine and tile looks, such as colorful geometrics, block and hexagon patterns, and more.

Waterproof (vinyl) flooring

This is a version of luxury vinyl, engineered to be thicker and more solid, offering the highest level of moisture protection. These floors are also constructed with the WPC (wood plastic composite) and SPC (stone plastic composite), which won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is or for how long.

You can go away for weeks or months, come home to a flood, and there will be no damage. As for style, it follows the same trends as luxury vinyl and works just as well in the living/dining space and bedroom as it does in the kitchen or bath.

Tile: time-honored building material

Currently trending are any colors that remind us of nature, such as green foliage, blue skies, and red sun. In addition, earthy colors and textures are all the rage, such as mosaics, wood look tile, encaustic styles, large format, and black and white vintage designs.

Waterproof laminate

Relatively new to the market, this is a long-awaited product made with a non-wood construction that makes it spillproof. It is now appropriate for installing kitchens, baths, and other wet spaces, which were once avoided because of the wood/water issue. It follows all trends and has a firm, rigid feeling of a hard surface such as wood or stone.
