The checkerboard floor trend has continued to peak this year as more of us bring the retro checkered look to our homes. From the classic Squares Stove Black & Linen White combination that topped our bestselling floor tiles this year, to the playful Squares Bay Blue that offers a modern twist, it’s a super stylish aesthetic that’s also highly practical for busy corners of the home.
Dark greys and blacks have trended in 2023 as more of us look to floors that are not only super stylish but practical and low maintenance too. We love a dark, patterned floor when it’s paired with natural textures, soft and neutral tones, and metallic accents; such as Dovetail Ink Black that looks great in a bathroom where it can take centre stage, or Northmore Pembroke Slate that works beautifully in a kitchen with its earthy grey hue.
Victorian inspired interiors have trended frequently this year across various social media platforms, and we saw this reflected in the amount of interest in our heritage patterns and designs. More people have fallen in love with our Walbrook collection in 2023, and Pastel Black in particular has stolen the hearts of many. With its darker colourway and pretty, intricate pattern, it’s a wonderfully forgiving flooring design hence it’s popularity for a bathroom of hallway. This year, we’ve loved styling Pastel Black alongside a wood border, such as Hurst Chevron Earl Grey, to make an elegant yet classic statement.
It’s not all been about the monochrome designs this year; we’ve seen a heightened interest in our blue flooring patterns as people look to bring some colour into their homes. Lattice Cornflower Blue was as popular choice thanks to its soft yet vibrant tone that looks great with vintage accessories in a bathroom.
Another way to bring blue to your flooring is with Dovetail Oxford Blue; its bright hue looks great in a kitchen and the geometric pattern is super durable and waterproof; making it not only a stylish choice but a sustainable and practical one too.
Whilst pattern has dominated when it comes to floor trends over the last twelve months, our collection of authentic wood planks has still been adored. Natural Plank Coppice, for example, proved a popular choice with its and we can see why with its warm tones and ultra-natural appearance, whilst parquet flooring also trended as customers looked to bring a classic yet modern design to their homes.
