What's Coming Next: Flooring Trends for 2024
Our homes have become multifunctional spaces over the past few years. As we move into 2024, we continue to explore the desire for authenticity, zoning within the home and biophilic places of sanctuary and wellness.
From material and colour, to texture and laying patterns, Lorna Williams, Head of Product Design and Visual Creation at Amtico, looks ahead to the latest flooring trends to introduce into your home.
2024 will see a continuation of authentic colours and textures, with a wider focus on craftsmanship, hand-made and artisan craft, realistic grains and grounded earthy hues.
With warm, comforting tones being key, you should expect to see a surge of easy-to-use dark woods, with rich, chocolate oaks taking centre stage.
Taking inspiration from everyday materials, Amtico flooring is designed to be hyper-realistic. From chalky, paler marbles that mirror natural pigmentation, to raw concrete effects that provide gentle movement across the floor to achieve softer industrial schemes.
Serving as a multifunctional space, the home is now a place where we work, entertain and relax. In 2024, it will become increasingly more important to carefully define zones within the home, utilising flooring to achieve subliminal zoning, helping to set different moods.
Don't be afraid to mix materials or patterns between spaces, cleverly using borders and simple perimeters with contrasting stripping to help create visually stunning material breaks.
Whether it is elegantly joining the flooring between rooms, or creating a beautiful, architectural focal point, homeowners can achieve it all.
Amtico's redesigned Signature collection lends itself perfectly to this technique with new variations of marbles, woods, stones and the introduction of metallic stripping.
Alternatively, the Amtico Décor collection is built up of intricate designs, perfect for those looking to make a statement in their home.
People’s desire to create a sense of retreat within their homes and a welcoming environment to recharge, will continue to drive the interior designs in 2024. The return to natural colours and authentic materials, coupled with softer organic shapes and heavier textures are key design focuses.
Alongside wood, calming shades of green and blues are becoming the new "usable neutrals". Inspiration for bathrooms is being drawn from spas and wellness centres with the rise of the "Spa'throom", a room dedicated to soothing and personal wellbeing.
This trend is all about subtle luxurious finishes that are timeless. Low contrasts between colours and patterns, and the mix of simple stones or Scandi wood tones can create a smooth classic approach. Hardwearing natural materials, such as beautiful, veined marbles, are perfect for injecting a space with an understated sense of luxury.
Amtico offers a range of products from authentic looking wood floors to marble-effect LVT tiles that are designed to mimic the natural veined texture of marble to create a luxurious atmosphere and long-lasting finish.
This trend can truly lend itself to numerous designs and spaces within the home: from clean, light minimalist rooms to darker, traditional schemes, and even interiors that border on theatrical.
Flooring patterns can completely change the look of a room. Timeless patterns such as herringbone and parquet remain a key pattern within our collections and are predicted to be on-trend for 2024.
Look to Amtico's new Versailles Parquet and Chevron designs or the new Gable Parquet and Chantilly Weave. These re-imagined modern takes on ornate traditional laying patterns can be adopted for different schemes within different grains or colours.
Alongside more traditional and heavily patterned options, there is also an increased demand for curves. Shifting from small, sharp geometric designs to softer circular shapes; in line with the cry for more healing, soft luxury spaces, these curves bring gentle fluidity. Circles also play into the return of the playful retro movements that will hit interiors over the next 12 months.
2024 will also welcome large-scale tile slabs. New extra-large and grand flagstone patterns are the best for open-plan spaces, be it in cottage kitchens or more industrial spaces.
