Stylist Hayley Jenkin shares the latest trends in timber look flooring

Keeping up with the latest interior design trends is no small task. Throw in for good measure a list of ‘buzz words’ and industry jargon, the task of designing your own trendy interior could become confusing. So in the effort of making your ‘on trend’ flooring decision easier, we’ve compiled a handy little summary of the 4 biggest trends in flooring and which Solomons products will help you achieve the look!

The ‘Traditional’ Trend

A “Traditional Style” is a timeless and constant trend which will confidently hold its own for your home’s lifetime. Always favoured for heritage or more classic homes, such as the distinct Queenslander, the style can also translate well with new builds. One timber floor we simply can’t go past is Cezanne – Merbau, with its rich colour.

The ‘Contemporary’ Trend

A long term trend is the ‘Australian Contemporary Design’ aesthetic, which is great for those wanting a clean, modern style that still features texture. You can achieve this by using light flooring, such as the stunning Wood Effects Tassie Oak Plank and pair the floor with modern furniture and minimalist styling.

The ‘Art Deco’ Trend

Round light fixtures, curved arches, gold accents are distinct details of the opulent Art Deco era, making glamorous waves on the 2019 style scene. Known for its formality and contrast, a great way to bring this trend to life is starting with your flooring. Parador Trendtime 12 Oak Antique Barrique, is perfect with its dark grain.

The ‘Hamptons’ Trend

Known for its light interiors and classic decor, this style lends itself to white wash timber floors like the Parador Trendtime 6 Oak Askada White Limed. With timber knot detail and a light white wash finish, this flooring was perfectly designed to capture the elegant, sophisticated but totally relaxed coastal Hampton’s feel.
