It’s easy for flooring to be overlooked in the grand scheme of interior design (if you’re not working with a professional, that is). Some homeowners are willing to settle for the wall-to-wall carpet that their home already has, or invest in other décor options that they think will tie their room together, or consider flooring only as an afterthought and make haphazard choices about what’s right for a space. The real story, however, is that your choice of flooring can make all the difference in a room, creating a harmonious, settled section of square footage. Some flooring options are more permanent, others can change with your whims. Here are some of the latest flooring trends you need to know about.

Mid-century refers to the late 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s, a time represented so accurately and endearingly in modern films and TV shows like Pleasantville, Mad Men, and That Thing You Do.

How do you capture the growing design trend of “mid-century modern” in your home without making it feel like you’ve stepped back in time? You want to be retro-inspired, but not go so retro that it looks like you haven’t updated your space for decades.
