Three trends to try this year
Whether you’re looking at renovating your home, your office, or you’re working on a brand new project, on thing is undeniable – choosing the right flooring can be make or break. This year’s fashionable flooring trends sees a massive return for Wood Flooring.
There’s so much to choose from when making the decision on which to go for. That’s why we’ve made it easy for you by compiling the trendiest styles; and they’re all certain to make a lasting impression.
Go Traditional with Herringbone Parquet
The earliest evidence for this much-admired style comes from France. The Francis I Gallery, in the Chateau de at Fontainebleau, contains an early example of the herringbone style as an art form. Thought to be created by Italian craftsmen, its elegance didn’t go unnoticed. Afterwards, needless to say, they were in very high demand.
Parquet flooring is usually laid in either a herringbone or chevron style. However, the herringbone design is appearing as the frontrunner for 2018. It looks great whether you go for a light-coloured wood to brighten the room, or a darker colour which adds a beautiful authenticity to rustic-styled rooms.
Use Grey Wood to Add Extra Light
Grey wood adds brightness to rooms that don’t receive as much natural light. Its contemporary style is especially popular in new-build kitchens, but it also looks great as a backdrop to colourful lounge areas.
Perfectly paired with modern-looking furniture and units, or used to provide a modern twist to traditional styles, grey wood is a trend not to be overlooked this coming year.
Add to the Rustic Feel with Distressed Wood Flooring
If you’re going for a rustic look, distressed wood flooring is the natural choice. Practicality is a key feature to note here; if your flooring is likely to get the odd scuff from heavy footfall, distressed wood disguises unwanted marks much better than the alternatives.
Choose your desired colour to stay in-keeping with the rest of the room, and rest easy knowing it has the durability to last a lifetime. Match it with the perfect scotia and beading to add contrast and give your flooring an exquisite finished feel.
