If color isn't your thing but you still want to make more of an impact with a neutral color scheme then this is the flooring trend for you. Over the past few years, we've seen a growing desire to furnish homes with tactile materials and textures, boucle being the prime example of one of the hottest interior design trends, to add depth to softer color schemes and make homes feel cozy and inviting.
"Texture is a key trend in interiors with many people working with materials to create an inviting room scheme," reveals Jon Flannigan, product manager at Kersaint Cobb.
"Creating a space that provides peace, rest and refuge will be a big trend," predicts Flooring Superstore’s Craig Smith, merchandising manager. "Natural colors, fibers, and texture all create a gentle aesthetic that is the perfect ambiance to relax and unwind."
"The heightened desire for a connection to nature and for spaces that evoke feelings of sanctuary and calm will continue to drive how homes are decorated," explains Lorna. "This year, natural colors, softer, more organic shapes, and heavier textures are key design focuses."
"Light colors and texture are particularly effective in narrow or small areas," Jon helpfully adds. "Soft, pale-colored flooring brightens up a small area, creates the illusion of space, and gives a light, airy look."
