Top flooring trends that will transform your home and help you create the ideal space to spend time with your family.  

Gareth Murchie, manager at Stories Flooring in Leeds explains how to find the perfect flooring and start a new chapter in your home’s story.

Q: Why should I update my flooring? 

A: It's a great way to update your decor, breathe fresh life into your home, and transform the space. Switch from a dark to a light flooring to brighten up the room and make the space appear larger. A new floor can add value to your property, make it easier to maintain and clean and help you create a home you love and can relax in.

Q: What are some key flooring trends for 2021?

A: Parquet flooring is a popular choice – it’s great for making an impact and adding a personal touch to your room.

Grey and charcoal tones are on-trend and go with practically anything. Use grey flooring in your bedroom to create a tranquil and relaxing space. Kahrs Classic Nouveau Charcoal engineered wooden flooring adds a dramatic flair and will go well with white walls for a timeless, classic look.

For your kitchen, think vintage. Antique-style flooring adds character and charm to your home. Use the Soil Oak from our Kahrs Original Harmony collection to help you recreate this look.

Autumnal shades will add warmth and make your home feel cosy. Kahrs Spirit Unity Orchard Walnut flooring is perfect for achieving this effect.

Q: How can I find the best flooring for my home?

A: Consider where you’ll be fitting your new flooring, how many people live in the house, and the lifestyle you lead.

I recommend exploring the Kahrs Flooring collection for inspiration. Kahrs is a leading flooring brand, with a history dating back over 150 years. It is responsible for the first multi-layered board construction, alongside its patented glue-less wood locking joint.

Kahrs construct their floors using eco-friendly technology and they are stylish, long-lasting and sustainable. Their diverse range of luxury wood and vinyl floor options offer plenty of choices to suit any budget and style of home.
