STEPPING in style
FLOORING IS MORE THAN THEGROUND BENEATH OUR FEET
In the ever-evolving world of interior design, flooring has emerged as a powerful medium for homeowners to express personal style while creating a functional space. This year, an array of trends is captivating the hearts of homeowners and designers alike. From encaustic floor tiles to neutral wood flooring, let’s dive into some of the top trends that are redefining spaces with their unique charm.
WOOL CARPET: ENDURING ELEGANCE
Renowned for its luxurious feel and natural insulation properties, wool carpet creates an inviting ambiance that’s hard to resist. As this year embraces modernity, wool carpets now feature bolder patterns and colors, allowing homeowners to personalize their spaces with a touch of opulence. From classic herringbone to contemporary geometric designs, they provide warmth and unmatched style.
LARGE FORMAT TILES: LASTING GRANDEUR
Materials like flagstone, limestone, and sandstone are being embraced for their understated elegance and grandeur. These tiles come in generous dimensions, reducing the number of grout lines and creating a seamless expanse that’s visually striking. Large format tiles are versatile, effortlessly enhancing indoor and outdoor spaces with their earthy textures and natural hues.
ENCAUSTIC FLOOR TILES: A TOUCH OF ARTISTRY
Encaustic floor tiles have made a triumphant return to the forefront of flooring design. These intricate, handcrafted tiles boast timeless patterns that range from delicate florals to bold geometrics. What sets encaustic tiles apart is their fusion of colors, which is not just surface level but runs throughout the tile. This makes them highly durable and perfect for high-traffic areas. Whether adorning an entryway or bringing life to a kitchen, encaustic tiles infuse spaces with artistry and character.
CHECKERBOARD: RETRO CHIC RETURNS
Prepare for a nostalgic journey as the checkerboard pattern finds its way back into homes. Best suited for hallways, bathrooms, and kitchens, the juxtaposition of contrasting colors creates a bold visual impact that’s both playful and elegant. From classic black and white to subtle pastel hues, checkerboard flooring elevates interiors, adding personality and a touch of whimsy.
NEUTRAL WOOD FLOORING: TIMELESS AND VERSATILE
The subdued tones of neutral wood create a foundation that complements various decor styles, from rustic to contemporary. Its traditional style presents an opportunity to use another 2023 trend by incorporating classic patterns like herringbone and parquet, adding an air of vintage sophistication and an inviting atmosphere that resonates with the past and the present.
As we step into the holidays and welcome guests into our home, we are reminded that the materials beneath our feet can be more than just a surface. They are a backdrop that reflects personal style and creates an inviting space. Whether you’re a fan of warm wool carpets or bold tile designs, there is a wide range of options to suit every taste and transform your rooms into a work of art.
