There’s no doubt that 2020 is (to put it lightly) proving to be a difficult year for individuals, families and businesses alike. And it’s forcing all of us to rethink our priorities and change the way we work and interact with others. We can take some solace in the knowledge that trends, styles, and fashions, wait for no man (or virus) and will continue to evolve regardless. So what does 2020 have in store for us in the world of flooring styles and trends?
Polished Concrete Flooring
Polished concrete is becoming an increasingly sought-after flooring solution, particularly for businesses with high-traffic areas. Not only is polished concrete flooring high durable, easy to maintain, hygienic, and resistant to wear and tear, but it’s also one of the most environmentally-friendly modern flooring solutions available today.
Polished concrete flooring is a great option if you’re looking for a stylish, contemporary look. Finishes range from minimalist greys and whites, to rustic, variable and exposed aggregate.
Natural Wood Replica Flooring
Natural wooden flooring looks fantastic, but it comes at a cost, particularly if you are fitting out a large space. It’s great news then that replica natural wood flooring is available at a fraction of the price and, if you know where to shop, it can look just as good as the real thing!
It’s no secret that natural wood has been a sought-after flooring style for many years and this trend is set to continue for the foreseeable future. The reason? Simple, because it looks great, oozes style and comfort, and gives your workspace a touch of class that’s very hard to beat. Some trends never go out of style, and wooden flooring is certainly proof of this.
Natural wood-effect flooring can come in all sorts of styles ranging from a rustic weathered appearance, to a white-washed bleached look, and everything in between! Whatever your taste, you can enjoy the appearance of a natural wooden floor without the high costs, lengthy installation and difficult maintenance.
Carpet Flooring for Offices
Carpeting in offices has been a popular choice for a while, but with the range of stylish options now available, it is fast becoming the de facto choice in office flooring solutions.
Carpet is the perfect choice for office environments for many reasons. Carpets absorb sound, making your workplace quieter which, in turn, makes it all the more easy to get work done. They also exude comfort and homeliness, which is never a bad thing considering your workforce will spend a large portion of their time in the office. On a practical front, good quality carpets are relatively quick to install, extremely durable and many come with anti-static properties – perfect for rooms with computers and digital equipment.
Patterned Wood Flooring
Another flooring option which is becoming increasingly popular is the patterned wood, or parquet flooring. Patterned wood flooring can give your business a completely different feel from traditional side by side flooring and can really add that touch of class.
Parquet may be more expensive than other flooring options, but for certain businesses, this option can pay dividends in the long run. Luxury establishments, high-end restaurants and bistros, or classy holiday homes could all benefit from a patterned wood flooring solution, helping you to stand out from your competition.
