2021 Flooring Trends

It’s a new year, which means fresh flooring trends. What better way to do that than to refresh your floors? 2020 saw herringbone wood and luxury vinyl tiles really take off, so what’s in store for 2021? 2020 and 2021 are the years of organisation and restoring interiors, so it’s even more imperative to get it right this time! Though flooring trends don’t change that severely annually, it’s worth having a look and recapping on what’s hot if we are looking to get ahead of the customs. So, here are some of the flooring trends to look forward to for this year and the best place to lay them in your home…

Whitewashed Wood

We think that being stuck inside all year has made a lot of us crave a natural and shabby sheik interior.? It’s all about beiges and browns this season, but beige isn’t really the best colour for a floor. That’s why whitewashed wood is a faultless optimal. It’s vivifying appearance will allow your interior to remain renewed looking and minimal, but with that extra shabby vintage look from the grains and knots of the wood. As much as minimalistic interior is all the trend right now, it can’t be rejected that a bit of hippy sheik never goes mistaken and makes things that bit more welcoming. One of the best things about whitewashed wood is that it complements nearly every interior style, from contemporary, rustic to classic. You can choose between lots of wood types, plank sizes and thicknesses too so modify your whitewashed wood to your heart’s content. If solid wood flooring is marginally out of your budget, then engineered wood is a inexpensive alternative or even laminate or luxury vinyl tiles.

Patterned Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Although vinyl has a status of being outdated and ugly, the new luxury vinyl tiles offer great indulgence at an affordable price – as well as looking so tasteful! So, in terms of type, patterned vinyl has made a authentic comeback with abstract designs to vintage florals rocking the flooring world in 2021. Black and white will always be on trend as well as neutral colours such as whites and greys. While it is true that you can have too many decorations, coupling patterned vinyl with plain walls and furnishings give you that good balance of pattern and plain. You can be too vigilant keeping everything basic then it can make your home look cold and bleak! There’s no harm having some pattern and it’ll keep things sophisticatedly interesting.

Wide Planks

2020 saw herringbone really take off and it is still at the height of style, but have you ever considered wide plank wood floors? They’re great at making slighter rooms look bigger and add that neutral grace that so many of us want in our interiors. It will offer you a customary look with a modern twist and is even better at showing off the wood’s natural inadequacies of knots and grains, ideal for a countryside vibe. Once more wide planks suits both dark and honey coloured wood, so it will work well with whatever your preference is.


We can’t stress the prominence and style of grey enough. A strong trend in 2020 and still continues to be, we can’t see grey going out of fashion any time soon. It’s serene and neutral appearance means it works well in any room and any interior theme as well as keeping us away from boring magnolia. A grey herringbone wood floor will work marvels in your hallway or a dusty grey laminate in your kitchen. Be careful which grey you go for on your floors though, as lighter grey tends to look much better than darker tones!
