Nothing beats the look and feel of authentic, real wood and the latest wood trends will whet the appetites of any design junkie! Wood is the most eco-friendly, beautiful and versatile flooring material there is. Although trends may come and go, quality and true style never goes out of fashion.
Trend #1 - Chevron & Herringbone Wood Floors
Chevron and herringbone patterns are back with a bang, albeit with a modern twist on traditional favourites.
The ingenious design of our newest and most innovative chevron "ready-made" patterned wood floors from Kahrs ensures easy and fast installation. Matching frame boards are also available for use around the edge of the room to create a border if required.The Kahrs Chevron Collection carries a 30-year warranty and is suitable for use over underfloor heating.

Herringbone floors have been around for a long time and is a trend that will never go out of style but as with most traditional designs, they start to trend once again when a modernised version of the design surfaces. Whether that’s the way they are laid, the size of the pieces or even a popular style border.
Below are two examples of solid parquet, herringbone wood floors by Broadleaf (exclusive to TileStyle) which we recently supplied for these client’s homes.
Trend #2 - Reclaimed Wood and Wood Wall Panelling
Reclaimed wood and wood panelling can add warmth and character to an otherwise insipid room setting and also add atmosphere to minimalistic designs.
Reclaimed wood and wood wall panelling is fast becoming a popular trend both for residential clients and commercial projects.We have numerous styles on display in the TileStyle showroom, some of which date back hundreds of years and comes from old boats, beams and even antique solid wood doors. Below is just a small selection of the reclaimed wood and wood wall panelling we have on display.Timber flooring is not just for the floor you know?! You can even use some of our wood floors as wall panelling such as this customer has done here in the picture below!Even better, come and see it in all its glory on display in the TileStyle showroom where you can feel the textures and see the beautiful detail up close. You can even smell the scent of wood in the air of the wood floor showroom in TileStyle...mmmmmm
Trend #3 - Super Wide & Long Wood Planks ( up to 300mm wide, that’s nearly 12 inches!) We have recently seen an increase in the demand for even wider than wide and longer than long wood planks so we have brought in numerous styles to TileStyle to suit customer’s needs. Super wide and long wood flooring planks create a more seamless look and also add a sense of drama and distinction as opposed to narrower planks.Typically wide planks range from between 5 to 8 inches but here in TileStyle, along with these sizes, we have SUPER size planks that are almost 12 inches in width! It’s not just the immensity of the size that’s impressive, but also the beauty of these superb quality wood floors, that make them so striking.
Note: Wood is a living material, one that breathes and adapts to its environment. Each board is unique and may have some variations in colour, structure and knots which individual samples cannot show. Wood exposed to normal sunlight is subject to colour change. These changes are expected and add to the beauty and distinctiveness of each wood floor.
