Flooring Trends for 2019 can be summed up in two fabulously appealing words:
Covering all the latest innovations in carpeting, vinyl plank, hardwood and tile, our own Michael Fletcher delivered the happenings of THE INTERNATIONAL SURFACES EVENT with his opening in our latest sales meeting: “I’m so excited with this year’s new introductions in flooring that I wish I had more time at Surfaces in Las Vegas!”

And, then, there’s Bog Wood!
It happens once in a great while where the new products that are being introduced totally take the sales meeting to another level with a quietness, a questioning look as Michael Fletcher leads our team through the discovery of Bog Wood. If you’re from the Mid-West, or parts thereabout, you’ve probably heard of Bog Wood, but for the rest of us here’s a quick introduction: It’s oak that has been buried in a peat bog for hundreds of years. The staining of the wood occurs naturally through organic matter of iron, salts & minerals which react to the tannins in the wood. What does this have to do with our new flooring introductions?

Mohawk Flooring Puts On Quite A Showing Too!
A couple of weeks before Michael Fletcher attended “TISE” in Vegas, I took a little trip south to Huntington Beach where Mohawk Flooring unveiled their newest releases for 2019.

What Makes Floors Family-Friendly?
You’ll be seeing the words “Family-Friendly” a lot in flooring, and for that matter, fabrics too (more on fabrics later) It’s a true revolution in the flooring industry that has us all abuzz with what this means for our customers! Evolving over the years floors - hard surface and carpets - stand up to life’s happenings and are worry-free, easy-to-clean, durable, dent-proof, oops-proof, pet-protected, waterproof and comply to strict indoor air-quality standards.
It’s like they were reading our minds!
