Fabulous Flooring Trends Of 2023
If you’re looking to build, renovate or update your existing flooring, these 2023 flooring trends will see you well ahead of the style curve.
Pick A Pattern
For a modern interior with a high-end look, the repeat patterns of herringbone parquet and chevron timber floors deliver real visual interest. Installed in a uniform zig-zag pattern, chevron boards meet in perfect arrow points, while herringbone planks appear more staggered.
Both designs create a clean, sophisticated aesthetic and can make a room feel instantly more spacious. Available in Engineered Timber Oak or hardy Hybrid boards, parquet patterned floors will elevate your home from the ground up.
Colour Me Natural
Bidding a fond farewell to Nordic inspired shades of grey, it’s time to embrace the charm of natural wood hues, with lighter browns, honeyed beige and creamy neutrals taking centre stage. No matter the type of wood flooring, these natural colours will add subtle warmth to every room of the house.
Style mavens looking for something a fraction more dramatic, may also consider a smokey toned floor. Darker timber makes a bold statement, bringing polished elegance to both formal and informal settings alike.
Colour choices aside, the texture of timber flooring is where design can really shine, with the physical feel of wire-brushed flooring and textured knotty grain recreating the look and patina of aged boards.
Whether it's complementing a particular cottage or farmhouse decor, or off-setting a contemporary look with rustic contrast, textured flooring adds huge natural appeal.
Good news, extra wide and long flooring planks aren’t going anywhere in 2023. Perfectly adaptable for any interior style, from sleekly smooth to an authentically salvaged look, wide boards offer a clean, balanced appearance, highlighting the natural texture and appearance of wood.
Hybrid combines the look and feel of natural wood with the technology of laminate and luxury vinyl planks for in-demand flooring with genuine superpowers. Extraordinarily durable and impact resistant, Hybrid flooring is also waterproof, making it suitable for just about every room of your house. A brilliant and affordable solution for Australian homes designed to look good for the long haul.
As we increasingly look toward reducing our carbon footprint, questions around how our flooring choices are manufactured and which materials are used loom large. Fortunately, there are a number of suppliers working hard to develop healthier, environmentally responsible products.
Alongside recycled wood flooring options, engineered hardwood is made with a solid wood veneer and, in many cases, a recycled plywood core, for traditional looking hardwood flooring requiring measurably less actual hardwood.
And the last word in flooring trends goes to biophilic design. Based around the concept of biophilia, or love of nature, biophilic design incorporates visual representations of ecological elements, creating soothing spaces with a visual connection to the natural world. Wood and wood look flooring well and truly meets the biophilic brief for calming and restorative interior design.
