Summertime Flooring Trends
The season most of us have been waiting for…summer! It’s easy to see why it’s the most popular season, where the weather gets warmer and life gets easier – with sun, festivals, holidays and plenty of social events to look forward to, it’s not surprising we all rave about it so much! Along with a new season comes a change in fashion and flooring is no exception. Let’s dive into what’s looking hot in the flooring world this summer and how you can get ahead of the interior style.
Changing the flooring in your home is the perfect way to create a whole new look to your home. The flooring can either make or break a room, so it’s important to get it right and it’s a great place to start! Here are our favourite trends of summer 2020…
Here at Luxury Flooring, we’ve always been a fan of grey and wood flooring and are so excited to see that both of them together are hot this summer! Grey is a very fashionable colour at the moment, in both clothing and interior due to its neutral, sophisticated yet timeless appeal. Grey complements nearly everything and is enough colour to make a statement without being too loud. For those of you who enjoy a rustic grade wood, then you’re in luck when it comes to grey. The wood’s natural imperfections of knots and grains show up beautifully on grey and will really present that gorgeous natural look. One of the best things about grey wood is that there’s so much choice, whether a lighter more contemporary colour is more to your taste, or a darker traditional look - it looks fantastic whatever the shade. If you’re really wanting to show off your taste and fashion sense, grey herringbone is all the rage right now, presenting the perfect mix between contemporary and traditional…
A daring choice but a fabulous one at that. Walnut wood presents its own unique beauty that you just don’t get in other wood flooring types. Its richness is faultless for those wanting to add a touch of class and something from a bygone era to their home. Dark walnut is ideal for bringing proportion to larger spaces and will create the perfect backdrop for a traditionally styled room. Don’t think that a walnut wood floor will make your home look too classical, its clean-cut premise with minimal knots and grains makes for a stunning contemporary feel too. Its advantages are endless!
Luxury Vinyl Tiles
It’s no secret that we think LVT is the best thing since sliced bread. Forget the ugly, cheap outdated lino vinyl from the 1970s, it has been revolutionised to create the highly sophisticated Luxury Vinyl Tiles of today. Perhaps the best quality of LVT is how practical and durable it is with virtually no maintenance needed to keep it in mint condition. It is scratch, stain and water proof and will last a long time looking as good as the day it was installed even with lots of foot traffic. Its benefits don’t stop there - with so many of us lusting after real wood but being put off by its price tag, LVT is here to save the day. LVT presents the glory of natural products such as wood and stone so well that often it’s impossible to tell them apart – all this at a much more affordable price. What’s not to like? Once more, LVT’s popularity is growing and it’s emerged as one of the hottest flooring choices right now and we can’t see it going out any time soon.
