It’s been a difficult couple of years for everyone. So what do we want from our interiors? A comforting space that feels homely and familiar. For this reason, vintage style is going to be even more popular. In terms of flooring this can mean several different looks.
PARQUET AND HERRINGBONE
Parquet herringbone floors have been in vogue for a while and I don’t see this changing anytime soon. Classy and comforting in one.
Vintage can also mean 1950s kitsch. Back then linoleum was all the rage. The modern equivalent can be found in these cool and groovy vinyl flooring designs.
Terrazzo ahs been on trend for a little while now but the catchw ith terrazzo is it is extremely difficult to lay. Particularly for most British homes which don’t have a concrete base. But now you can have the dazzling 1960s Italian style by using vinyl floor tiles. So easy to lay, warmer underfoot and no one would know!
Does wood every go out of style? no. Never. But fashions do change. Grey woods have been popular for a while but I think they ahve had their day. When is ee a picture of a house with the grey wood flooring it looks alike a black and white picture. Frankly it looks cold and a little miserable. As I said, we are looking for comfort and that means warm colours. Rich dark woods or golden oak tones are the way forward.
And remember that fashions come and go. The most important aspect of choosing your floor is does it make you happy? If so, go with your heart!
