Today’s homes are becoming a reflection of the unique personality, style and trend preference of the homeowner. From industrial to transitional to eclectic, design options are virtually limitless and a floor can serve as the focal point of a room. When it comes to what’s trending in flooring, here’s what we’re seeing on the horizon.
Into the Woods
Hardwood and wood-look flooring has a natural appeal that complements a wide range of styles. With seemingly limitless colour options – from deep, rich browns to contemporary greys – you’ll have no trouble finding an option that works in your space.
Add character to your space with a floor that features scraped and brushed artisan effects.
There’s been a resurgence of interior decorating that’s dawn from the past, seeking inspiration from different eras while layering in modern elements for an unexpected experience. This trend includes vintage design, often reinvented with current colours, and worn or incomplete.
Old Style, In Style
“What’s old is new again“ rings true of this trend. A dimensional checkerboard look gives your room a new take on the classic parquet look.
Try a floor with a printed pattern to make a statement in your home.
Break The Pattern
Many of our products can be mixed to create colour blocking effects. This adds interest and depth to an entryway, bathroom or any large room.
Break The Pattern
Herringbone is a great way to incorporate patterns while still giving your room a timeless feel.
When designing for interior spaces, the world can be your inspiration. Drawn from cultures across the world – from rich tapestries to local cuisine – this trend can create a space that’s exotic, warm and authentic.
This trend includes warmer shades of gray, blue and brown as well as blonde woods and embraces the ever-popular Hygge look, evoking the coziness and comfort of winter.
On the flip side, bold maximalism encompasses a strong mix of bold colors and patterns. Balance this look with a lighter floor color such as a blonde or gray.
Exotic hardwood and hardwood looks have fallen out of favor to domestic wood species, but we are seeing fun pairings with animal prints this year in furniture, fashion and accessories, such as area rugs, which pair great with natural-looking floors.
Try adventurous prints and patterns inspired by people and places cross the globe.
Stimulation of Senses
Colour has always been a force when it comes to design choice, but texture is becoming just as important. Texture is tactile, visually stimulating and adds interest to a room.
Contrast in Texture
Texture allows the authenticity of genuine wood grains to shine through and gives wood-look and stone-look flooring visual appeal and artisan quality.
Contrast in Texture
While scraped looks remain poplar, they’re being surpassed by wire-brushed wood, which offers a vintage appeal while appearing less aggressive than a scraped floor.
Metal looks and textures play an important role in the home, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.
Raw Meets Polished
The natural beauty of rough and polished elements come together to great a one-of-a-kind look.
Inspired by Nature
Bring elements of nature into your home to create a peaceful and welcoming space you won’t want to leave.
Design inspired by the beach, soothing colours in blue and green, sandy neutrals – these aqueous colours are soothing, often with a coastal appeal.
Taupe, ivory and subdued tans are reminiscent of the sand, and driftwood inspires the use of grey.
Ode to the Elements
Distressed or weathered looks are increasing in popularity, with a focus on reclaimed wood.
We are seeing a resurgence of a trend that was popular in the 90s on flooring, decor and walls – faux stone, or designers taking an artistic license with depicting natural stone.
It’s Not Wood
It’s not wood – but it sure looks like it. Some of the most popular patterns are those that mimic the look of wood and other natural materials.
