Flooring has come a long way in the 50 years since The Carpet Shoppe first opened its doors. In 1970, your choice of flooring for your home (or even your office, church, school or any other application) would be one of about 3 options. For the soft or warm side of your project, you could choose a broadloom or roll style of carpet. There were 3 fiber options to choose from: wool, nylon or polypropylene. Nylon was the most commonly used. For the hard flooring, you had ceramic or stone tile and either a resilient tile or sheet product with a relatively small color pallet.
Now, jump into your time machine and shoot ahead 50 years to 2020 with flooring trends that would make your grandparents' head spin.
With the everyday changes and developments of longer-lasting products, our prediction is that carpet will continue to decrease, being replaced by more hard surface type products with more DIY types of installation.
