Below is an edit of the latest striking flooring trends, bold and stylish alike.
A BOLD CHOICE. This wide stripe in an array of colours is not everyone’s choice but I love it and not much else is needed in this hallway. I have seen this carpet used in a living room and on a staircase and the effect is fabulous. WFS1 Wool Audrey Sunrise, £140m2, Crucial Trading
NEUTRAL WITH A TWIST. If you just can’t quite commit to all this colour, then at least choose a neutral with a texture like this herringbone design. SV3125 Wilton Svelte Willow, £123m2, Crucial Trading.
CHECK MATE. Tartans and plaids are back in fashion, and although it is quite a traditional design, when used with retro or modern furniture it takes on a tongue-in-cheek, quirky feel, ideal for this winter. Abbeyglen Cavan Plaid Carpet £80m2, Abbotsford Maccines carpet £80 m2. both from Brintons
HIGHT OF FASHION. A stair runner is the ideal way to make an impact, here you can be a bit more bold and embrace a pattern or colour. Use your stairs as a blank canvas to start living out your colourful dreams. WFN501 Wool Fabulous Helsinki Narrow in Diamond £140m2, Crucial Trading. Padstow Candy Spot Carpet £75 m2, Brintons
FLOORING ON A ROLL. Vinyl has certainly come a long way, who would have thought vinyl can be this trendy? It is practical and the perfect choice for high traffic areas, where you want something a bit different, and fitting to most budgets too. I am so impressed with this range. Mardis Gras vinyl, Sagres diamond , Filez tiles, both £12.99m2, both Carpetright
