Top Renovation and Flooring Trends for 2024

 Flooring Trends

If you have a flooring renovation earmarked for 2024, there are quite a few return trends and new ones that will impress. For instance, there is one huge trend that you won’t believe has finally faded out of style — you’ll have to read on to find out what it is!

Flooring Trends for 2024

It pays to know what trends to invest in. Why? Simple: if you don’t want to hire flooring installers to come back in 5 years to redo your flooring because it’s “outdated,” then it’s in your best interest to know what’s trending.

These are the forecasted flooring trends per flooring material for 2024:

Wood or Wood Alternatives

If you’re in the market for wood flooring, the biggest trends are:

  • Smoked: Smoked wood, whether it’s real or a wood-look laminate, offers an exciting new look for your living space while infusing it with warmth and drama. However, with hardwood planks, the smoking process highlights the wood grain, giving your room more character.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: If you’re considering this trend, try it in your living room. You can also pair smoked flooring with one of the colour trends of the upcoming year, warm beige-browns.
  • Bleached: If you haven’t heard of bleached wood, consider this flooring trend if your style preference is traditional or minimalist. Bleached flooring is essentially whitewashing the wood so it takes on a light-white appearance while retaining the natural beauty of the wood. Wood alternative floorings like tile planks or luxury vinyl also offer a bleached wood look.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Bleached flooring pairs well with a traditional design, but it also works with a minimalist look that favours white (walls or floors). In a minimalist look, the benefit of bleached flooring is that the wood character (knots, grain) adds character and texture to break up the white. 
  • Reclaimed Barn Board: For environmentally-friendly homeowners who like the rustic look, look no further than reclaimed barn board. Recycled barn board has been trending for a couple of years, prompting the wood-look alternative flooring industry to enter the market with its variations on the aged flooring look. No matter which you choose, reclaimed barn board is a trend that is likely to continue into the foreseeable future.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Aged flooring can help establish an ambiance of warmth and comfort in your living space, and it pairs well with 2024’s colour trends, like blue or creamy brown.

Tile Trends

Whether you’re tiling your bathroom or another place in your home, many tile trends are carrying over from 2023.

  • Monochromatic: An enduring tile trend is black and white. Whether tiling your bathroom in a checkerboard pattern or redoing a hallway in black-and-white, both are on-trend. However, there is one stipulation: vintage graphic monochromatic designs are driving the latest iteration of black-and-white tiles. So, to uplevel your black-and-white tile, try graphic designs.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Add graphic monochromatic designs in your bathroom for a moody, dramatic look.
  • Graphics: Another tile trend from last season is the popularity of graphic and patterned tiles for your floors or backsplash — especially, but not limited to, in your kitchen. Graphic tiles are excellent for homeowners who want a statement, showstopper piece in their space.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Mosaics, herringbone, geometrics, or monochrome patterns are trending and work well with colour trends like pastels, blues, berries, or pinks.
  • Oversized: The final tile look for 2024 is another carryover from 2023: oversized, large-format tiles. This is excellent news for homeowners with a small bathroom, as installing these tiles can make your space appear larger — thanks to fewer grout lines!
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Oversized or large-format tiles aren’t just ideal for your powder room; they work well in your living room, too. 

Renovation Trends for 2024

There are some new trends blowing up the design world that homeowners can integrate into their renovation plans for the new year. These are the trends that you need to know about:

  • Goodbye Grey, Hello Warm Beige: Grey became the hot neutral, but now design trends are steering towards a new neutral warm beige or “greige” (grey mixed with beige). One of the reasons for greige’s popularity is it’s warm and cozy. So, if you’re considering grey, unbelievably, it’s on its way out. 
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Greige walls pair well with wood or wood-look flooring.
  • Timeless: Homeowners are doubling down by sticking with traditional, timeless designs in their bathrooms and kitchens. Consider classic colours and wooden features — like floors —  if you want a long-lastinglook.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: If you want your renovation to last decades, always opt for a timeless renovation by avoiding trending styles, like loud colours.
  • Kitchen Backsplash Tile Variety: The final big renovation trend is for your kitchen. We all know the benefits and beauty of a backsplash, but the same colour or pattern is bland across a big space. The solution is to break up the tile monopoly by introducing a new tile behind your stove.
    • Flooring installer suggestion: Try natural stone or quartz behind your stove to add character to your kitchen.

Renovation and Flooring Trends for 2024

With the end of 2023 upon us, it’s time to look ahead at the styles for 2024. Whether you’re interested in installing the latest looks or not, knowing the year’s trends will help prevent you from installing a soon-to-be-outdated trend, like grey. Who would have thought that grey was on the chopping block?
