Indoor Jungle


Starting to notice the introduction of plant life in the homes of your friends or family? Then you need to catch up! This summer 2020 interior trend incorporates urban décor and dark wood floors, and is achievable in any home. 


Further, plant life is a great way to tie a simplistic aesthetic and nature together. This is often a minimalistic setting with little furnishings, enhanced by the emerald tones in greenery that ornament the room, providing a jungle vibe.

To obtain the full effect and draw out the tones of the decorative vegetation, a dark wood flooring is a great way to contrast. This almost replicates the tones and textures seen in a jungle, and is a great way to captivate your guests, giving them a stylish urban vibe to relax in. 


A wide range of flooring options are available to allow versatility. When it comes to colours and wood effect, most flooring types, such as solid and engineered wood, laminate, luxury vinyl tiles and EvoCore, will accommodate this look, offering darker shades and tones. 


However, to maximise the naturality, engineered wood flooring would provide the full effect having a top layer of real wood with genuine features found in wood. Exposing knots, grains and mineral markings that are caused by the effects of the outdoors.

Timeless - Herringbone and Chevron flooring


Sometimes, some things just never get old; flooring styles such as herringbone and chevron are no exception. These 2020 flooring trends really bring a focal point to your space. And, with so much going on at your feet, the rest of your furnishings and décor don’t have to be over the top. 




Herringbone flooring refers to the timeless, zigzag pattern parquet blocks are laid in to form a distinctive fishbone style. This gives a classic yet contemporary finish to any room in your home.



Becoming more and more popular, herringbone flooring can be suited to the styles of many homes due to its timeless appearance. So whether you’re a minimalist or one for retro interiors, this flooring will work with whatever your design aesthetic. 


Herringbone flooring can be purchased in an array of colours to complement your space and personal preference, thus making it achievable for anyone to bring this flooring into their décor. 




Another timeless classic flooring style that brings a focal point to any room due to its distinctive pattern is chevron. The chevron pattern shares resemblance to the herringbone style flooring, with one significant difference: the floorboards are facing each other, creating a “V” shape rather than the iconic zig-zag of herringbone.



Again, with its classic yet contemporary demeanour, this 2020 flooring trend can be introduced into any home, with any aesthetic. 


Like an elegant look with Chesterfield sofas and brass framed paintings? How about a shabby chic feel? Not a problem, this summer home décor will go with any style, and its versatility means that if you want to redecorate - great! This flooring trend will still look amazing with whatever interior changes you want to make.


Never go out of style with these 2020 flooring trends for your summer home décor.

Now they say history repeats itself, and with this summer interior trend, that appears to correct! Wall panelling is on the rise this summer. Previously used to border a wall, this style segments an over the top wallpaper with a wooden panelled section below. You know the style we mean. In fact, watch any 70’s film, and you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.


But, it’s making a comeback. We all love a comeback story, don’t we? 


And the beauty of panelling is that you can do whatever you want with it. No more sticking to the norms.

Squares, rectangles, zigzags; panelling styles are limitless. This summer interior idea is one that is making a bold appearance when coupled with the right flooring. A contrasting colour helps accentuate the panelled wall, and draw focus to it as a key feature of any room. 


Moreover, this look is easily achievable and can be done by anyone at any DIY skill level. With a step by step guide of how to create this look, you can introduce this style into your home in no time.





Now, we'll look at another trend that has had its own comeback story. Rustic.


With summer interior trends grasping onto the idea of combining classic with contemporary, this trend has become a hit for those homeowners with period features that they want to highlight. 


Got beams in your roof? An old oak mantle piece drawing attention to your log burner? Why not harmonise the room with other rustic furnishings and natural looking flooring? Couple this with whites and natural light, and you have your contemporary vibe, whilst still exposing amazing traditional features that make your house unique.

This look can be created when buying flooring such as laminate. It offers a real wood feel and striking features and complements the wooden period effects around your home. 


Fun Flooring Patterns


Next, we'll look at a trend that shows wacky is the new wonderful, with fun and “out there” patterns emerging in the 2020 flooring trends department.


The mismatched floors, the sharp contrasting colours and the aztec patterns, all provide a way of giving your rooms a ‘wow’ factor. 



Popular in smaller rooms of the home, this 2020 flooring trend is commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms as an easy method of making a small space engaging. 


Flooring with more pattern and colour through it tends to work better in smaller rooms. This prevents the patterns becoming overwhelming on the eye. Don’t worry - if you were thinking of transforming a larger space, patterns that don’t appear as “busy” still look amazing in larger spaces. 


Get eccentric with fun flooring patterns with this summer interior trend.


Beach House


With all the summer feels, holiday desires soon set in and we want to be walking barefoot on the sand under a tropical sunset. While that is possible, and offers a brief moment of escape, why not go the extra mile and bring that holiday beach vibe, to you?

Introducing those white tones through furnishings, floorings and accessories, helps to freshen up your home and create a light and airy feel associated with being at the beach. 


Going for white or light grey flooring can help with light reflections around the room, making it feel larger in size and a more space to be in. 


Who wouldn’t want to feel like they’re on holiday all summer long?
