Looking to transform your home? Then you might want to start with your flooring! We’ve curated seven of our favourite hard flooring looks for 2018, although these stylish choices are sure to last for years to come. Remember, a good classic floor is timeless!
Go bold with attention-grabbing flooring. Whether you introduce a touch of Morocco with our Starfloor range, or add some on-trend metallic luxe with our copper effect Minerals range, be sure to make a statement in style. Keep the rest of the room’s décor and styling minimal to let the floor do the talking.
More and more of us are becoming conscious about the environment and the effects our lifestyle choices can have on the planet. So, it comes as no surprise that the world’s attention is turning to our homes, and thus, our flooring. Is it sustainable? Is it eco-friendly? Can flooring ever be truly ‘green’? A plus for engineered wood flooring is that the trees that are cut down to be made into flooring retain the carbon they have absorbed, which provides us with clean oxygen. This is a far better option than if the tree is left to die, where it would then release the carbon dioxide back into the environment. We can assure you that all of our engineered wood flooring is sustainably sourced.
Dark wood laminate
Although light wood flooring is great for creating a very clean and contemporary look, dark flooring is really coming into its own for 2018. Moody hues provide the perfect finishing touches to any room and help to create a bold and grand atmosphere, especially when used in bigger rooms. Ideal for every room in your home, dark floors look crisp and timeless against lighter interiors, although don’t be afraid to branch out from the neutrals and introduce some colour!
Oh, parquet. This classic floor, consisting of wooden blocks arranged in a geometric pattern, always has been and always will be a showstopper. And its popularity seems to be growing even more in 2018. Whether you live in an old cottage, or in a modern new build, parquet will look amazing. You can get the luxe look for less with one of our affordable alternatives at Carpetright; we have a fantastic range of vinyl flooring designed to imitate this gorgeous look for a fraction of the price.
Wider planks of wood
Go wide in 2018! If you’re after a traditional and authentic look for your hard flooring, then may we introduce you to wide planks — they look fantastic in larger rooms as this allows them to really shine.
Grey is the new black. Or in the interiors world, grey is the new beige! But you knew that anyway. 2018 is going to see a new grey take centrestage, one that is paler, with softer tones to create a brighter and airier atmosphere. The beauty of a grey floor is its versatility and the simple fact that you can introduce any colour or texture into the room and your flooring will still look classy, stylish and modern.
Distressed wood flooring is guaranteed to look good whether it’s in a traditional or more modern home. Homeowners and interior lovers flock to it as its aged and worn appearance adds character and charm to any space. Whether you’re going for a modern look or a shabby chic cottage country theme, the vintage look is here to stay!
