The start of the New Year is a great time to update your floors with the latest styles set to take over in 2018. Take a look at the following flooring trends and start planning your brand-new home right now:

  1. Wide Planks
    If you are looking for something different, consider installing wide planks. Using larger segments of wood highlights the grains, knots and natural patterns, adding character and definition to any room.
  2. Grey Flooring
    One of the most popular interior shades of 2017, grey remains a top colour choice for residential homes, particularly flooring. Though popular, it can still create a unique look in modern settings, brightening up rooms with its timeless appearance. With colours ranging from light to dark, grey is highly versatile depending on your personal preference.
  3. Parquet
    Having recently resurfaced as a popular choice of flooring for homeowners, parquetry is no longer seen as a dated style – quite the opposite! With intricate, geometric patterns, the many designs found in parquetry emphasise the rich tones of the wood, creating a sense of stateliness as well as complementing a shabby chic interior.
  4. Dark Wood
    In contrast to grey flooring, deep shades of ebony, espresso and chocolate brown are preferred by homeowners looking to make a bold statement in their living spaces. These extreme dark tones are complemented by light interiors, bright colourful rugs and plenty of natural light.
  5. Variable widths
    For a contemporary and customised space, consider laying hardwood planks with random widths. This historical style was originally used by builders to efficiently utilise all parts of the tree. Nowadays, it is used by homeowners to create a fresh and authentic effect.
  6. Bamboo and Cork
    Both sustainable choices, bamboo and cork are popular among homeowners, with the trend set to continue into 2018. Where bamboo can provide a fresh and elegant twist to your space, cork is springy underfoot and a natural insulator, making it perfect in areas of high foot traffic.
