SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Believe it or not, social trends are having an impact on interior design in general and flooring design in particular.

Put another way, flooring covering designers are influenced by design leaders who, in turn, are influenced by popular trends showcased in places like New York Fashion Week, lifestyle magazines and media outlets.

On the color side, a strong trend that is emerging for 2016 is the use of grey in flooring.  This will become the new ‘classic’ and can be used for modern styles, especially Scandinavian an Minimalist interiors.

There are many different ways to utilize grey, from a dark charcoal vinyl faux wood to a pale ash-white engineered floor.
