home: trend [ flooring ]
Recent trends have seen flooring as an area of the home people are investing in more and more; looking for creative, original solutions for a statement look that is both current but adaptable to sit with various styles of interior designs as we change walls, textiles and furniture more often.
From dark woods to grey natural tones, to flexible resistant cork and wow-factor pattern ceramic tiles, across designer and high street brands there’s a lot to choose from.
Focus is on hard wearing and durable finishes and an advantage is to have something that is partially replaceable if damaged – like a tile or plank to easily swap. Having spare of your chosen flooring is a must for just such reason – so having a little left over is not a bad thing.
We love the recent designs of incorporating the look of texture and fabric within the finish of a tile – linens and silks working well.
For child friendly and uber hardwearing yet still modern and on trend, we think cork and chipboard are great options especially if you’re on a budget. Both materials are easy to get hold of and simple to get a sample to lay a little just to get an idea of the look.
If you love the look of vintage or traditional patterned, tiles but the prices can be rather high it’s great to look into vinyl tile versions that look both incredible and very durable, plus underfoot feels warmer and safer. Zazous, Tiles Direct and Leader Floors have great options. Vinyl is also as the cheaper version easy and less costly to change in the future when tastes change.
Modern vinyl has opened up the flooring market, with more and more finishes and patterns previously available only in other materials, now being replicated in vinyl – same look but cheaper. DIY favourite Homebase has a super new range of slate, porcelain and terrazzo look vinyl tiles that have a rich, textured finish but with the benefits of vinyl in warmth, durability and price.
Hunt out bargains, read reviews and order lots of samples of buying off the internet to ensure you are aware of finish, quality and thickness.
