Grey is the new Black! (And other flooring trends for 2018.)Published 19/01/2018A new season often means a fresh makeover for a room or two in your home. As your plans take shape, take a look at the flooring styles that will be trending in 2018.
1.Shades of Grey
Grey comes in lots of shades, and the best part? It’s completely neutral, so it goes with every colour – literally. So when it comes to redecorating, you can relax knowing that your flooring will partner your new look perfectly. Grey floors offer a unique, clean look that fits well in modern houses that need to brighten up.
Are you feeling a bit braver with colours? Amethyst and Denim/Petrol blues give strong accent looks. Why not try the colour of the year for 2018? Ultra Violet is warm and striking colour, (Pantone 18-3838). All these shades go perfectly with grey!
2. Get the Look
The Scandinavian look proved popular during 2017 and this is set to continue, bringing wooden floors and pastel colours to even more homes this year. This style complements the popular natural and earthy looks. If wooden flooring will stretch your budget too far, there are some fantastic laminates that we can show you.
3. Remember Your Greens!
Green is set to be an extremely popular colour in 2018. Fresh greens complete a sought-after earthy look, bringing leafy colours indoors. Combine with oranges and yellows for a natural, calm atmosphere with flair.
4. Re-Vamping the Vintage Look
The Vintage look has been popular for a while and the trend is set to continue. Hard wood flooring and vinyls are perfect for achieving a stylish, vintage look. Whether you like the ‘loved and rustic’ look or a bold style, there’s a vinyl to suit your taste and your budget.
5. Carpet Tiles
Combining traditional carpet and tiling together allows for many great designs or geometric patterns. Watch out for modular carpet options!
“The trends for 2018 work for almost every type of space,” explains Mark Wilson of Charles Wilson Carpets & Flooring. “So whether you want a luxurious carpet that feels soft, a durable wooden floor for a busy space or a practical flooring to cope with spills… you can embrace the great looks that will be in demand this year.”
