Minimaluxe aesthetic

With searches for ‘minimal luxury’ and ‘quiet luxury‘ spiking over the last year, it’s no surprise that the more simple yet luxe aesthetic is one of the hottest kitchen trends for the coming months. From the use of muted colours to investing in good quality, classic interior features, this is a great trend to embrace and can easily be achieved through your flooring.

One of the joys of luxury vinyl tiles is that they’re elegant and incredibly versatile, yet remain great value meaning you can get a stylish floor whilst not spending a fortune. Take our brand new Croft Oak collection for example; a restful palette of eight authentic designs boasting natural wood textures that are ultra realistic thanks to In Register Embossing. The planks look and feel like real wood, an aesthetic that perfectly encapsulates the ‘minimaluxe’ trend we’re seeing all over our social feeds.

Dopamine dressing

On the flip side, another trend set to soar this year is dopamine dressing and introducing bright hues to our kitchens. The use of colour can be mood-boosting and with the kitchen often being the heart of the home, it’s no surprise that many of us are turning to bolder tones to really make our space shine.

Burgundy reds, emerald greens and breezy blues are all anticipated to be popular this year and can be reflected in your choice of kitchen flooring too. One great way to experiment with colour is with a playful checkerboard floor; Squares Bay Blue & Squares Linen White is not only fun and contemporary but stylish and practical too especially in a kitchen that might see a lot of footfall.

If you’re after a look that’s colourful but more heritage inspired, the Walbrook collection is a great place to start too; Walbrook Old Green in particular works well for a kitchen with its nod to the vintage-nostalgia design trend. Contrast with pale, putty tones to make the space feel even more luxe.

Natural textures

Kitchens that embrace natural textures are going to be popular this year, and your flooring is a great way of bring warm and neutral materials to your home. The layering of textiles is a good place to start; we love Croft Oak Flaxen Oak Herringbone when styled with soft throws, fresh foliage and on-trend fluted wall panelling for layer upon layer of texture.

Another way to bring natural, refined textures to your kitchen is with a stone effect LVT floor; warm underfoot with an ultra realistic stone look, our Nuance collection is not only elegant but super durable and easy to maintain too. Duck Egg Blue brings a sense of calm and tranquillity to the home whilst still offering a hint of rustic texture and that sought-after quiet luxury feel. The tiles are extra large for a truly contemporary finish, and the gentle palette of six stone shades nods to a textured concrete look which is ideal for modern rustic styling.

Shades of black

Another colour trend for 2024, we’re anticipating seeing a lot of dark and velvety hues in the kitchen including rich blacks and moody greys. According to research, sales of black kitchen cabinets have soared over the last twelve months and a black or grey kitchen floor is the ideal companion especially when contrasted with paler walls and metallic accents.

Squares Stove Black & Linen White is a classic checkered look that’s striking and timeless; or you could bring in a modern pattern with Dovetail Ink Black that offers a twist on the checkerboard kitchen floor. Designed by Neisha Crosland and frequently trending, this monochrome floor tile is incredibly practical yet you needn’t compromise on the style thanks to its heritage-inspired motif and clean, contemporary aesthetic.

Walbrook Sherwin Slate is another great choice for a darker coloured floor; it’s a warm grey that works beautifully in a kitchen especially one that’s taking inspiration from Victorian and heritage design. The entire collection has been made with modern family living in mind and so its deep heritage tone is wonderfully practical yet characterful too.

Sustainable style

Sustainable home choices are not a new trend and eco-conscious design is more and more important to us all. We’re really proud that our MSeries range of wood effect flooring is officially recognised for its low impact on the environment in all aspects – from production process and product composition to emissions and indoor air quality.

Our ultra-realistic collection of wood planks, like Croft Oak Rosehip, are easy to clean with no need for harmful chemicals and our floors are full recyclable so if you’re on the hunt for an innovative and eco-friendly flooring solution, you can choose from our super stylish herringbone tiles to the more nordic-inspired plank.
