What are the top three key flooring trends to look out for in 2019

Alternatives to carpets are still going strong in 2019 and this year at Frank’s the Flooring Store there is even more choice, one thing hasn’t changed though – it’s still impossible to buy flooring for less anywhere!

If you’re looking for an update, take a look at some of 2019’s top trends.

Parquet flooring

This style has a long tradition – from grand homes to country cottages, and its unforgettable appearance is certainly staging a big comeback in 2019. Modern interpretations on the traditional herringbone or over-size chevron design are available in a range of flooring types, from parquet laminate flooring styles to real wood and luxury vinyl tiles. Colour choices are equally varied, from warm honey tones to gentle beiges and, of course, the ever-popular contemporary grey.


This colour is right on trend this year – from bathrooms to kitchens and flooring is no different. You don’t need to suffer freezing feet to get the look though – there are plenty of much more appealing concrete-look options. Luxury vinyl tiles are actually the perfect choice to get the concrete look and with a warm under foot feel, have to be a great option. Luxury vinyl tiles also offer the additional benefit of quick and easy installation without the need for adhesive – and can even be easily re-lifted.

Darker shades

Although grey laminate flooring styles and neutrals still dominate, there is a trend towards darker, moodier flooring shades, creating a luxurious – even indulgent look. Dark blue, mustard and teal kitchen units are leading the way in the most important room in the house, and your choice of floor needs to complement this bolder approach.

Why not choose a flooring colour that holds its own with these warm rich tones, such Antique Oak or Aged Maple? With a range of colours, including laminate flooring, real wood and luxury vinyl tiles, selecting the perfect colour from Frank’s is easy.
