Not only does flooring set the scene for the interior design of your home it also provides important practicality for heavy footfall places. There are so many different types of flooring that it can be quite an overwhelming choice, but we thought we would share with you the top flooring trends emerging right now.

Mosaic Effect
Patterned flooring has been popular for the last few years and 2024 is no exception. These busy tiles if used correctly can draw intrigue to areas sometimes overlooked.

Back to Parquet
Parquet is a classic flooring style that exudes elegance and sophistication, particularly when utilized in spacious open-plan areas. For a more modern twist, why not opt for a ceramic floor tile in a wood effect finish or keep it more traditional with some great luxury vinyl flooring laid in herringbone.

Natural Finished
As with the home decor trends, we will continue to see many throughout 2024, and we are expecting that to continue through to flooring. Forever a firm favourite, wood effect floors bring warmth and texture to any home interior. Many of our buyers opt for luxury vinyl flooring for easy maintenance and a hard-wearing finish. Stone and concrete are also set to be popular choices. These materials create a timeless and classic look that never goes out of style. We’re also seeing a rise in the use of mixed materials, like combining wood with tile or stone, to create unique and visually stunning flooring designs.

What we’re seeing is a shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly materials. Consumers are becoming more conscious of their environmental impact and are willing to invest in flooring options that are both stylish and sustainable.

Layered rugs
Continuing throughout 2024 we expect rugs to play a huge part, with popular flooring choices being hard floors, homeowners are expected to turn to rugs to soften areas of the home. Not only do they help with acoustics, but rugs provide much-needed texture and a feeling of luxury.
In terms of colours, neutrals are still going strong, with shades of grey, beige, and white being popular choices. However, we’re also seeing a rise in bold colours and patterns, especially in areas like kitchens and bathrooms where homeowners are looking to make a statement.

Finally, technology is also influencing flooring trends, with the rise of smart flooring options that can sense changes in temperature and adjust accordingly. We’re also seeing more flooring options that are easy to clean and maintain, making them a practical choice for busy homeowners.

Overall, the flooring trends for 2024 are all about sustainability, natural materials, bold designs, and smart technology. Whether you’re looking to update your home or office, there are plenty of exciting options to choose from.
