Style clock 2022

Heading into the New Year, Flooring America/Flooring Canada has just released its 2022 Style Watch – a trend prediction of the 10 most distinctive flooring styles to keep an eye on this year.

Fueled by the pandemic’s home improvement boom, the flooring industry is seeing a surge in popularity as consumers spend more time at home and begin renovations and upgrades. Heading into the New Year, Flooring America/Flooring Canada has just released its 2022 Style Watch – a trend prediction of the 10 most distinctive flooring styles to keep an eye on this year.

2022 Flooring Style Clock:

1. Notes on Blue. When it comes to adding color to floors, blue is quickly becoming the new neutral. And since Pantone has named Very Peri, an periwinkle-blue, as its 2022 color of the year, look for shades of blue indoors and on floors. Blue tends to be “trendy” and remains en vogue. Shades of blue can also maintain the neutral look of floors.

2. Luxurious comfort. In chaotic times, people turn to the comforts of the past and transform their homes into cozy retreats. Luxurious comfort is a subset of the core cottage trend and includes the return of wallpaper, vintage furniture and plush, plush carpeting. Consumers will continue to seek the comfort of a soft carpet underfoot by installing carpet in bedrooms, living rooms and family areas.

3. Troubled vintage. The cottage core trend goes hand-in-hand with another style for 2022: distressed vintage. Think whitewashed antique barns and hand-scraped European oak surfaces creating lived-in interiors, drawing on retro styles from black-and-white tiles to traditional dark hardwood floors.

4. Organic natural. During lockdown, with so many holidaymakers on hold or forced to work from home, many have longed to bring the outdoors indoors and expand outdoor living space. This will continue next year, with an increased focus on nature-inspired textures and all-natural materials. Bring this trend into your home with wood, natural stone or green.

5. Multipurpose workspaces. Speaking of working from home, it continues to drive the market as WFH paves the way for continued upgrades to home workspaces, allowing offices or co-workspaces to feature floors that combine function with a comfortable foot feel.

6. Lighter and brighter. Light colored floors will continue to be popular in 2022, making white oak and white ash attractive choices for many homeowners looking to transform their floors. Light colors open up the home and act like mirrors, refracting light to make rooms with fewer windows and natural light appear larger and less cramped.

7. Waterproof Flooring: For active families with children and pets, the waterproof flooring wave will continue well into 2022. These flooring products can withstand all kinds of unexpected accidents thanks to waterproof cores and revolutionary anti-scratch technology.

8. Pattern upon pattern. Designers predict a trend towards patterns on carpets. Fun textures add dimension and patterns add a distinct warmth to home design, which can be subtle or bold. The maximalist trend features bold layering and dramatic animal print rugs.

9. Unlimited Variation. Embracing the beauty of wood variance is expected to be one of next year’s design trends. After a season of monochromatic palettes with white, gray and beige tones, the design will turn to variation and different color schemes on the floors, making it more conducive to decorate the surrounding space with warm and cool tones.

10. Charismatic personality. While many new flooring styles feature modern finishes, warm and natural-feeling floors are an enduring style that continues to be popular in homes year after year – and this year is no exception. There’s evidence this trend is here for 2022, with an aesthetic that appeals to both traditional and mixed design types like modern farmhouse and shabby chic.
