2020 flooring trends – and the perfect underlay to match
Thinking about re-decorating your home for 2020? Perhaps you have a few days off work over the festive period. As the Christmas decorations come down, what better time to update your house and give it a fresh new look? For a little inspiration, here we take a look at some of the most popular flooring trends for 2020 – and recommend the perfect carpet underlay to go with each.
1. Grey carpets
Did you know, grey is the new black? For the last few years, it’s been the most popular colour for carpet by far – overtaking traditional neutral shades of beige and cream. And, no surprise, it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future!
Not only are grey carpets modern and sophisticated, they also create an environment in which you can relax and re-charge of an evening – making them a great option for the lounge or bedroom. Be sure to choose something long-pile, plush and luxurious. Then, to make the carpet as warm and cosy as possible, we suggest pairing this flooring trend with the Plushwalk 12mm Carpet Underlay.
2. Creative patterns
Patterns are one of the most anticipated flooring trends of 2020. Gone are the days when these were restricted to the walls. The idea is to make the floor the focal point of the room by adding a statement, eye-catching print – and the easiest way to do so is with luxury vinyl tiles (LVT).
LVT is a relatively new addition to the flooring industry. It has a realistic wood, stone, or ceramic appearance, yet it’s much more affordable and easier to maintain. What’s more, it comes in a diverse range of styles and patterns. Simply choose your favourite for the kitchen or dining room and, to ensure the best results, combine with the Acoustic Vinyl Click Flooring Underlay.
3. Textured hardwood
For 2020, texture is more popular than it ever has been before. This is a fantastic option for high traffic areas, such as the hallway or living room. To capture the flooring trend, opt for hand-scraped or distressed wood and choose a pale shade – such as blonde, whitewash or light grey.
With hardwood flooring, it’s particularly important to invest in a high-quality carpet underlay. Not only does this help to level the subfloor, it significantly reduces impact noise and improves underfoot comfort. Our recommendation is the 7mm Fibreboard Underlay. Available for just £1.99 per m2, it’s a fail-safe choice, suitable for use in pretty much any room of the home.
