Floors Laid at an Angle: Knight Tile Rigid Core

Gone are the days when flooring was laid in a straightforward, parallel manner. This year, it’s all about angles. Laying your floor at a 45-degree angle to the walls can transform a room, making it appear larger and more dynamic. The Knight Tile Rigid Core Collection is perfect for this, offering a range of designs that can be laid at an angle for that extra touch of individuality.


Herringbone: Art Select Collection

Herringbone is a classic that seems to never go out of style. Herringbone adds texture and depth to any room and has always been an intricate pattern that captures the eye. With a variety of wood and stone designs available, you can create a herringbone pattern that truly reflects your personal style.


Bold Patterns: Heritage Collection

If you’re looking to make a simple yet bold statement, look no further than some of the more extravagant patterns that have had a huge surge in popularity over the last year. The Heritage Collection offers classic geometric tile patterns in a palette of 12 traditional and contemporary colours. Whether you opt for a Victorian-inspired design or something more modern, this collection allows you to create a floor that’s stylish but also uniquely you.


Large Wooden Texture Planks: Van Gogh Collection

Sometimes, bigger really is better. Large wooden texture planks, like the ones picture from the Van Gogh Collection, offer a rustic yet naturally refined look. These planks are not just aesthetically pleasing; they also have the practical advantage of making a room appear more spacious. The larger varieties of wooden texture planks make a flooring more tactile, whilst giving the entire room a modern yet distinguished appearance.


Monochrome: Opus Collection

Monochrome designs are timeless and versatile, fitting seamlessly into a variety of interior styles. Although the entire range includes a wide variety of colour tones and surface finishes; we’re featuring this large tile black and white pattern from Karndean’s Opus Collection. This stunning flooring offers a design that can add a touch of sophistication to any room, from kitchens to living rooms. The flexible nature of monochrome patterning means it can accompany modern and traditional rooms alike, adding contrast to plain spaces and a visually stunning foundation to build upon.


As we’ve explored, the flooring trends of this year are far from mundane. They invite homeowners to break away from traditional norms and embrace styles that are imaginative, bold, and deeply personal.
