4 Flooring Trends of 2019

Flooring trends are increasingly becoming more daring and creative.

Whether you are looking for trends to take into your home, your store or an industrial space, we delve into the top four flooring trends for this year.

1. Wood-alike

Since our post on stamped concrete, we are noticing more and more flooring trends that are one material, designed to look like another.

One popular trend in tile flooring, including those for bathrooms, kitchens and retail stores, is tile that resembles wooden planks. Several different styles and colours are available, and they do look incredibly realistic.

Is it wood? Is it a tile? It’s wood effect tile!

Using flooring solutions that look like materials such as wood, slate and granite is usually less expensive than buying the real deal and can have added benefits.

Wood looks great but isn’t the sturdiest material. This floor combines the look of wood with the strength of concrete.

Take the example above, this concrete is stamped to look just like wooden planks, but whereas wood can experience wear, discolouration and even rot due to high footfall, UV exposure and high rainfall, this has all the durability of concrete.

2. Going Green

While some may be green in colour too, we are talking about the popularity of environmentally sustainable flooring solutions!

Throughout the commercial and residential world, recycled and natural materials obtained from sustainable sources are big this year. If you have seen our blog post on terrazzo flooring, you’ll know just what we are talking about.

Other flooring solutions such as bamboo, cork, engineered wood and reclaimed wood are also proving to be very popular choices.

What’s that? You’re looking for a sustainable flooring option? Put a cork in it!

3. Mosaics

Including subway tiles, herringbone, chevron, terrazzo and small squares, mosaics are very on-trend this year!

This style of flooring is extremely eye-catching and can also be extremely hardwearing if the right materials are chosen.

Terrazzo is a great way to inject colour and vibrancy into a busy, demanding environment.

In busy retail spaces for example, terrazzo mosaics are a great choice thanks to a perfect blend of aesthetics and durability. Here, metal borders have been used to separate different colours in order to achieve an intricate design.

4. Rustic

Although many will argue that 2019 has been the ‘Year of Grey’ in terms of interior design and home furnishings in particular, it is great to see that the rustic farmhouse look is still a popular trend in 2019.

We have seen some great rustic flooring, and you can find many examples of these in our post on textures. Take this for example.

Stone carpets are an ideal way to create a rustic countryside vibe inside buildings.

This crazy golf club in London was very specific about the type of flooring for the 1920s themed establishment. A stone carpet bound in clear resin was chosen to mimic a quintessentially British rustic country path – and we think this was achieved to great effect!
