How to choose flooring that complements 2019's interior trends

Having the appearance of natural stone or wood, but none of the hassle of maintenance, why LVT maybe the answer...

Revamping your home at the beginning of a year is a great excuse to incorporate what are predicted to be 2019’s hottest trends – from wall colour to window sills there will be an interior trend box to tick, but how do you find flooring to complement these trends?

Natural-looking flooring goes well in any home, but there has to be a balance of style and substance. Luxury vinyl tiles/flooring (LVT) offers the natural look of authentic wood and stone, with added benefits. It’s easier to clean and maintain, more durable and moisture resistant, as well as being easy and quick to install.

In the kitchen…
Dark appliances and even darker walls will be the hit kitchen trend of 2019 in direct contrast to 2018’s airy light tones. Such rich hues can seem overwhelming in the kitchen, but they easily create a high-fashion, high-quality aesthetic in any home. The key to this look is balance; when opting for black or grey walls and appliances choose a light floor as the base.

Shades, such as Moduleo Select Brio Oak 22237, will create a contrast between this and the dimmer aspects of the room, bringing light where desired. Choosing pale flooring ticks the trend box and going for LVT means that if there’s any spillage the flooring can be cleaned quickly and easily to be restored to its former glory – ideal if you like entertaining guests or have a hectic family schedule.

What flooring best suits your kitchen?

In the bathroom…
After Pantone announced Living Coral – what it describes as a “vibrant, yet mellow” pinky orange tone – as its 2019 Colour of the Year, people are beginning to set more stock by pastel colours, which we expect will quickly become king.

Injecting subtle yet colourful accents can be a good way to incorporate this trend, or if you’re feeling bold create a statement wall and pair with ashy, grey tones similar to those in Moduleo Transform Mexican Ash 20965.

In the bedroom…
Would you be willing to go nude?

Brooding colour and dark tones were a big bedroom trend in 2018 but it has all changed this year. With self-care and meditation very of the moment, it’s essential that the bedroom is a place for relaxation. Choosing neutral walls of cream, grey or tan while incorporating soft furnishings with a few small pops of subtle colour can transform your space into a haven of calm. Ash-toned, light wooden flooring, such as Moduleo Transform Verdon Oak 24280, completes this look to create a rounded aesthetic.

Nobody wants to step out onto a cold floor in the depths of winter, but rugs aren’t the only way to solve this. Moduleo’s LVT flooring is engineered for heat insulation that feels warm to the touch, making those dark mornings a little bit easier.

No matter what 2019 trends make their way into your home, pick something that feels like you and matches your lifestyle. As David Hicks, legendary interior designer said, “The best rooms have something to say about the people who live in them.” Whether it’s bright colours, moodier shades or nude tones, go for flooring that completes the space and ticks the right boxes for your day-to-day lifestyle.
