Flooring Trends


In the HL May 2014 issue, you will find seven pages of exciting new ideas on flooring.

These cover trends in digital print tiles, the latest in carpets and rugs, hardwood and reclaimed wood flooring, laminate and vinyl floors and a few sustainable flooring options. In addition to this great reference source, we spotted another exciting new trend in flooring on decor8blog.com.

Keen to try something new? Mixing flooring options, such as ceramic tiles and wood, is a good place to start.

  • For something quite unusual, see the Moroccan-shaped ceramic tiles manufactured by Tabarka Studio in US, which are fitted and laid into wooden parquet flooring.
  • 41zero42 in Italy shows how a herringbone pattern can seamlessly flow from wood into brightly coloured ceramic tiles of the same shape and size.
  • Jake Fitzjones' photograph of a rustic kitchen with an exposed brick wall in Living Etc shows how the ceramic tiles are contrasted with wooden flooring in one open plan living space.
  • Decor8blog also shows how hexagonal ceramic tiles flow into a hardwood floor, as seen in a Helsinki restaurant, featured on Little Helsinki.
