If 2023 is the year you’ve dedicated to a major renovation or starting your dream build, then you’ll need to be thinking about flooring. The type of flooring you choose is an important element and can either make or break your space (no pressure). Plus, there’s so many options to choose from and with a new year comes the latest styles and flooring advancements. So, we’ve enlisted the help of Flooring Xtra to explore the 2023 flooring trends that will elevate your home and look good for years to come.
Patterns might not be your first thought when choosing a new floor but hear us out. There are so many timeless patterned options, like the Herringbone Flooring style. Even though Herringbone Flooring is often thought of as a more dominant option, its elegant and sophisticated style blends seamlessly with every home and décor. Herringbone Flooring is created using straight cut planks, placed at an angle to create the classic pattern. It can also be achieved through different types of flooring materials, making it incredibly versatile. Our advice? Opt for this style in a vinyl material for an easy maintenance option.
You’ve probably already heard the term Hybrid Flooring, but what actually is it? Hybrid Flooring, as the name suggests, is a hybrid of laminate and vinyl. It combines the best elements of both materials making it durable, versatile and oh-so stylish. The popularity of open plan living has encouraged this trend as Hybrid Flooring can be used throughout all your living spaces. Plus, did we mention it’s 100% waterproof and cost effective? It goes without saying, Hybrid Flooring will continue to be sought after throughout 2023 and beyond.
“No matter what the customer's vision is for their project, there will be an option that fits the budget. There is no need to compromise on style or quality when there’s beautiful options within the whole budget spectrum.”
- Michelle Dow, Marketing Manager
Unique Natural Materials
Incorporating natural elements into your home creates a calm, organic feel within the space. So, it’s no surprise natural flooring materials are a go-to for many Australian homes. Opting for flooring such as timber or wool carpet adds a touch of warmth and luxury, while remaining completely unique to your home. Due to the natural aspects of the products, no two floors will ever be the same, meaning your space can’t be matched or replicated. We love the idea of unique flooring in 2023, with natural materials taking this to the next level.
Tip: Opting for sustainable flooring options, like timber or wool carpet which are sourced locally, is the perfect choice for people who are after an environmentally conscious solution.
Flooring for Every Lifestyle
The best thing about new trends is personalising them to suit your lifestyle. Picking and choosing what elements to incorporate is essential because there’s no point in having something stylish that isn’t functional. Cue the waterproof timber flooring trend. Living an effortless, balanced lifestyle is huge right now. So, what better way to give yourself peace of mind than making sure your beautiful timber flooring isn't going to get ruined at the drop of a hat (or drink). Its watertight surface works throughout the home, from the living room to the kitchen and bathroom, making it the perfect solution for every lifestyle.
Speaking of lifestyles, in the past few years, we’ve seen a huge increase in the trend of staying home. Think intimate dinner parties, cosy movie nights and lazy days spent with the family. With this lifestyle change, we’ve also seen an increase in prioritising comfortable living spaces. What better way to achieve this than by adding carpet? Trending as a staple piece within the home, carpet is a key component in tying together a room. We’re seeing an amazing mix of patterned carpets and stylish bold colours that are the perfect complement to any space.
