Flooring trends | Be inspired to introduce pattern into your floor design

Want to follow the latest trends in flooring for your home design? We’re here to help at Vincent Flooring, and one of the big flooring trends emerging this year is pattern in floor design.

With such a large choice of flooring styles now available people are choosing flooring that will become a feature in its own right within their home design and adding texture and pattern is a great way to do that.

Whether you go bold and it becomes the stand-out feature in a minimalist room design, or add floor textures that contrast and complement more eclectic interior design styles, don’t let your flooring be an afterthought. Make a statement and add on-trend pattern to your floors.

There are lots of ways to do it and we’ve rounded up just a few design examples proving popular at the moment, spanning a host of flooring types and all available for supply and install from our Walton-on-Thames showroom. It’s time to get a little creative with your floor design.

Herringbone, herringbone and more herringbone

Parquet floors still remain the comeback king and they are here to stay. Flooring manufacturers have responded and your choice of parquet style blocks, tiles and planks, ready for installation in an array of laying patterns, has never been better.

From small parquet blocks and larger herringbone styles to basketweave formations, chevron and bespoke block designs – the finished installation pattern will add interest and texture to your floor design and create a natural flow inside your home.
