Living Room Flooring Trends for 2020

If you’re looking for ideas for living room flooring, we’ve had a look at some of the most recent trends that are here to stay and will refresh your whole room.  Flooring is a brilliant investment too, so while updating things like soft furnishings can give a quick, low cost revival, flooring will change the look completely and add value to your home.

Stick around and explore your options for updating your home with our ideas for living room flooring.

Distressed Look and Visible Grain

Natural or distressed looking floors are really popular at the moment and look great in a variety of styles of décor.  This means that despite being trendy, this flooring style will see you through style updates, allowing you to swap out furniture or soft furnishings to change your look while still making the most of your flooring. 

It goes well with a bohemian feel, with light and airy touches, tapestries and plants.  It also looks great in more rustic looking spaces.  Think brown leather sofas, antique style bookshelves and a roaring fire!  Have a look at our Karndean LooseLay for inspiration.

And if wood, or wood effect isn’t your style, there are some great options for tiles and vinyl in a distressed style, like our Colosseum vinyl tiles.

Dark Flooring

There is a misconception that using dark flooring can make your room feel smaller.  However, paired with the right furnishings, dark floors look sleek and luxurious.  They look great in modern minimal homes and industrial style furnishings.  We love the colour choices in our Swiss Solid laminate range.

Herringbone and Chevron

A trend which has come back around from the 1960s, this one is set to stay.  It works really well in light modern homes.  You can use different sizes and pattern formations depending on the size of your room and the look you’re going for.  This is something we’d be happy to advise you on and you can book a measuring appointment for free.

When you think of tiling, living rooms may not be your first thought.  Tiling actually looks great in living spaces, particular in big open plan areas.  Not only does it look great, tile is really easy to clean as well as durable and long lasting.  Have a look at our Moduleo stone effect vinyl tiling for some inspiration.  This range gives the beautiful stone effect look whilst providing extra insulation for your home.

Now that you’ve got some ideas for living room flooring, the next thing to do is either browse our ranges online, or come into store to see our flooring in person.  We are currently offering private shopping appointments.  We’d be happy to help you to look through ideas, measure your room and choose the right product for you.
