Recent market research suggests that there is an ongoing increase in the demand for soft covering flooring products. While this research deals with national and even global trends, it’s probably safe to assume that it has some bearing on what to expect from flooring in Columbus over the coming months and years. Thus, that research may be of particular interest to Columbus real estate owners and property managers who deal extensively with multi-family homes.
If you’ve been in that field for a long time, you’ve probably witnessed the waxing and waning in popularity of various kinds of flooring in Columbus. On a national scale, hardwood and laminate floors grew in popularity as younger Generation Xers and then Millennials made their own homes and bucked many of the trends of their elders, who helped to popularize carpeting. Now soft covering may be making a comeback, and it’s up to property owners to consider whether to take advantage of that trend of wait for it to shift again.
There are a few ways to tackle this problem of competing alternatives for multi-family flooring in Columbus. One option for property owners is to stick with hardwood, laminates, or similar alternatives and provide individual units with area rugs in order to accommodate both general categories of flooring preference. Another option is to install altogether different flooring in different units, and pass on the final choice to tenants. And of course, you could simply go along with current trends and hope that they last long enough that none of your flooring in Columbus-area apartments starts to look out-of-fashion in the near future.
