As we come to the end of 2014 (where did that year go?) we know that lots of you will be planning home updates and renovations in the new year. We’ve put together four of our favourite flooring trends for 2015 to give you some inspiration and kick-start your planning.

50 shades of grey

Grey flooring has seen a huge surge in popularity over the last 12 months and we expect to see this continue into 2015 and throughout. Grey provides a more contemporary alternative to the traditional oak tones and there are hundreds of vinyl flooring options available from dramatic slates to weathered oaks and Nordic pines to compliment neutral schemes or create a dramatic contrast.

Chevron is timeless and has been given a modern makeover for 2015. With Amtico Signature flooring, the layout and design options for endless, whether you want to opt for a versatile oak, or incorporate different colours and textures, chevron is guaranteed to create and impact and provide a lasting feature in your home.

Easy Clean carpets

We are finally starting to realise that even the most house proud of us has a tendency to be clumsy from time to time. Easy clean carpets which resist most stains and can be cleaned with neat bleach are big news for 2015 – say goodbye to the days of over rubbing with that carpet cleaner – the Primo collection from Cormar carpets resists spills from tea, coffee and wine to even oil, crayon and ink. You won’t ever look back.

 Love it with Linear

Linear flooring designs add interest to any room and can also help to add length and space – perfect for gallery kitchens, hallways and bathrooms. The tiles can be laid in the same direction or alternate directions for added interest. There’s a huge range of colour options available to suit any colour scheme and the end result provides a fresh approach to wood or plain tiles.
