Right now, retro design is all the rage. There's particular interest in the 1970s.
Luxury vinyl flooring with a large assortment of colors, patterns, and styles can easily fit into any interior plan.
The exact years of the mid-century period are 1933 to the late 60s. There's an enormous spillover into the 70s. Many of us grew up with it!
A brief description of mid-century decor
Mid-century emphasizes clean lines, function, minimal ornamentation, and materials like wood, ceramic tile, stone, and vinyl. For example, luxury vinyl flooring is cut into planks to mimic hardwood floorboards.
Alternatively, it is cut into square, tile-sized pieces called luxury vinyl tile. Either form is suitable for mid-century decor.
On the one hand, this decor is somewhat plain. On another, it's when designers experimented with different materials and contrast, such as throwing a shaggy rug over concrete.
Want to amp it up? Choose waterproof flooring, which is luxury vinyl, engineered to be thicker, more durable, and offers the highest moisture protection level.
Wood: almost synonymous with mid-century
One form of luxury vinyl flooring is the material cut into planks to mimic hardwood floorboards. There are hundreds of photos from which to choose but look for the more "quiet" species with delicate grain patterns and few knots and swirls.
