Are you ready for the renovation you've always wanted? Or are you thinking of flipping that house that's been sitting on the market for months? I will give you the inside scoop on the current flooring trends so you can start your project off on the right footing. We'll uncover all the flooring trends and styles you need to know for 2022.
Sustainable textured Wool carpets
While a cut pile dark coloured wool carpet will always be a classic, we are seeing a huge rise in textured and lighter colour sustainable textured Wool carpets.
A great example of this is Akaroa (500/cream) which is made from 100% pure New Zealand wool, available exclusively from Harrisons. This chunky textured loop pile is stylish, durable, naturally warm and stain-resistant. Plus it's a sustainable choice being a completely renewable fibre. The warm tones of this carpet perfectly pair with a neutral minimalism style which is here to stay for 2022.
Natural Laminate planking and soft tones
Similar to cream wool carpets, the rise in light colour woods are in.
With their modest gentle colours, blonde or white/grey the washed wood flooring trend references the stunning Scandinavian home design we all love. This style provides a light and airy space that brightens any room making the area look larger. These natural hues' air simplicity, elegance and effortless style while also being a low maintenance option that will be durable for family life.
Luxury Vinyl = Pattern Pattern Pattern.
Chevron, herringbone, stone look and tiles all add personality and character to any space. We are seeing a growing interest in more punchy styles especially in those wet areas and smaller spaces like bathrooms. Without having to commit a whole house to one flooring look Luxury Vinyl offers an affordable option to create your own 'Pinterest worthy' home.
In summary: choose wool and wood
To sum up, we are seeing increasing popularity towards more low maintenance and sustainable options. Although a growing interest in wool carpets, Laminate and Luxury Vinyl Plank options are definitely on the rise for those larger high traffic areas of the home. Meaning; easier cleanup and a quick switch out with a rug for more options of styling.
Whether you go bold and make a statement or keep it simple and neutral, whatever you choose this year, create a sanctuary for you and your loved ones to enjoy and we'll help you along the way!
