The 2021 U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trends Study found that following last year’s spike in interest for hardwood flooring, it returned to the number two position, behind ceramic or porcelain tile (24% and 23%, respectively). Vinyl continues to grow as a desired flooring material, with 19% of renovators choosing vinyl or resilient flooring in 2020, up 5% from the previous year, and now significantly more popular than engineered wood (14%).

Researchers surveyed more than 2,000 U.S. homeowners using Houzz who are in the midst of, are planning, or recently completed a kitchen renovation.
