Here at BMD Materials, Winnipeg's go-to flooring experts, we're always keeping our fingers on the pulse of the latest trends. Whether you're revamping your entire home or refreshing a single room, choosing the right flooring sets the foundation for your design. So, what's hot in 2024? Here are 8 trends we're excited to see take center stage:
1. Natural & Light Wood Tones: A Timeless Classic
Embrace the beauty of nature with light wood floors. This enduring trend seamlessly blends with various design styles, from minimalist to traditional. Heather Goerzen of Havenly says, "unstained white oak offers a neutral foundation for endless design possibilities." Don't worry if budget is a concern! Engineered hardwood or realistic laminate options can achieve the look you love.
2. Go Wide with Extra-Wide Plank Hardwood
Bigger is bolder! Jessica Dorling of Dorling Design Studio predicts extra-wide, 10-inch plank hardwood floors gaining traction in 2024. Inspired by European design, these wider planks add a touch of contemporary freshness to any space.
3. Checkerboard Chic: A Timeless Pattern with a Twist
The classic black and white checkerboard tile is back in a big way, and it's not going anywhere soon! Samantha Stathis Lynch of Samantha Ware Designs says, "expect softer tones like warm white marble with classic gray Carrara, or even organic neutrals and terrazzo hues." Get creative with different color combinations for a unique touch.
4. Terrazzo: Bold & Beautiful, Taking center stage
This versatile material is already popular for countertops and tiles, and now it's stepping onto the flooring scene. Kara Pipermeyer of Studio Kosma predicts, "We'll see even bigger, bolder patterns with larger chunks of aggregate. Expect exciting colorways and playful checkerboard patterns emerging."
5. Patterns Galore: Herringbone, basketweave, chevron...oh my!
Get ready for patterned floors in 2024! Designers like Chelsea Potthast of Potthast Design foresee herringbone, basketweave, and chevron layouts taking center stage, especially in entryways and smaller spaces. Add visual interest and texture with these timeless patterns.
6. Mosaic Magic: A touch of individuality for your floors
Another classic making a comeback: mosaic tile! Jessica Dorling says, "it's perfect for adding personality and charm, and ideal for retro or vintage vibes." Choose from custom designs or pre-set sheets for an easier installation.
7. Natural Stone: Marble, slate, and the enduring beauty of nature
The desire for natural materials extends beyond wood. Marble continues to be a top choice, but Caroline Kopp of Caroline Kopp Interior Design expects large-format tiles to dominate, offering a sleek, polished look. Slate is another popular option, with Dijana Savic-Jambert of MAREDI Design in Winnipeg predicting its rise in large-format tiles. Remember, porcelain tiles offering a similar look can be a great low-maintenance alternative.
8. Terracotta: Earthy tones and endless possibilities
Terracotta tiles are another trend Goerzen sees continuing in 2024. "They blend seamlessly with organic modern and traditional styles," she says. "Timeless yet fresh, collected yet unfussy, they offer endless possibilities with their various shades, shapes, and textures."
