Flooring trends for 2022


Finding the right flooring for your home or office space is essential to create the look you want. It has to work in both style and function and with a wide variety of beautiful designs and finishes available, from carpet to floor tiles, you may be struggling to decide what will work best for you. 

If you’re looking for inspiration and ideas for your next flooring project, then we are here to help. We have put together a list of all the most popular flooring trends for 2022, so you can see what is popular right now and hopefully give you a better idea of what you want from your space!


Extra wide planks

A favourite of interior designers everywhere in 2022, wide planks are becoming a hot trend. Combining the classic wood finish with a more modern style, they can be used to make a small indoor space appear larger and less confined. With fewer seams than the traditional sized planks, you can create a smooth and fresh look to wood floors. So, if you are looking for the warmth and elegance of wood flooring but with a contemporary twist, add wide planks to your design and create a beautiful, more modern addition to your home décor.



From retro-patterned floor tiles to the chic ‘V-shape’ of herringbone wood planks, patterned flooring is a key trend this year. Innovative patterned design can add visual interest to a room, creating a wow factor. You don’t even have to stay within one colour palette, let your creative side free and mix colours and materials, or make a unique pattern with carpet or floor tiles.

If you like the idea of decorative flooring design but want to keep a classic style, solid wood and engineered wood flooring in herringbone, chevron or Versailles patterns are an interesting yet beautiful solution.


Rustic tones

A natural colour palette of browns and wood flooring to create a homely “rustic” feel to a space has been a popular trend for the last couple of years. Inspired by spending more time at home during the pandemic, people are wanting to create a more cosy and warm living space. Wood flooring is a classic, but there has been a definite shift to the darker, richer woods than of previous years. 

Brushed wood planks are particularly on trend as they bring out the natural texture and grain of the wood, giving a rustic yet comforting ambience to a room.


Carpet Tiles

Carpet tiles can be a fun way of making your home more interesting with your flooring. Explore colour tones within a colour palette or go wild with bright pops of colour to make your space stand out. Fresh and exciting yet easy to maintain as you haven’t got a singular carpet, this is a great trend for 2022 for those wanting to embrace their creativity!


Lighter colours

Lighter flooring colours are still one of the hottest trends for 2022. Popular due to a lighter floor offering the illusion of space and brightening up a room, you can find lighter colours across a range of materials, from wood, laminate, floor tiles to carpet, so you can get the flooring style you want.

From whitewashed oak that still keeps its natural grain, to natural carpet and soft, light greys, a neutral colour palette for your flooring works with most styles and can complement any interior design. Keep your space subtle and minimalist or use it as a base from which to add pops of bright colour without the space becoming too busy or overwhelming.


Vinyl Tiles

Vinyl flooring tiles is a hot trend for 2022 and with a range of great patterns and colourways, you can create your perfect space in which to relax, entertain or enjoy. Thanks to their water-resistance, they are also the ideal solution for kitchens and bathrooms and can be easily installed without a floor fitter.

If you like the idea of vinyl tiles but want a specific finish, they are widely available in a range of effects from wood to marble, so you can find the style you need to match your home.


Environmentally friendly flooring

With everyone doing their bit to help to limit the impact climate change is having on our planet, there has been an increased trend for more eco-friendly flooring. 

Carpets are a particularly desirable choice as you can buy them made from recycled materials as well as going natural with Sisal carpets and rugs. As they are made from 100% natural fibres and are biodegradable, they are a more sustainable flooring choice than synthetic carpets.

If you are looking to stay eco-friendly but don’t want carpet for your home, then choose a flooring supplier that provides wood planks that have been sustainably sourced and are PEFC or FSC certified.
