Interior design trends across the spectrum, be they modern or traditional, have one thing in common: they’re enhanced by the addition of a wooden floor. We’ve seen for ourselves how a wooden flooring surface can add light and space to a contemporary design, or a warm and intimate feel to cosy spaces. This makes our engineered wooden floors a timeless choice as they will superbly complement design ideas inspired by all eras. When it comes to interior design trends, an engineered wooden floor from The Wooden Floor Company will always be in fashion.
For centuries, wooden floors have been celebrated for their enduring beauty. The Wooden Floor Company has brought a modern approach to this classic surface by offering engineered wooden floors that look as good as the real thing but are much more durable and robust while being low maintenance at the same time. Unlike trendy flooring materials that come and go, wooden floors will always have a place in homes of any design. We guarantee it, thanks to our range of colours and styles. There’s something that will fit your vision, and because our floors are made to last, they’ll fit for many years. And when it’s time for a design revamp, you can be sure that we’ll have the right floor for that new look.
One of the remarkable features of our engineered wooden floors is their ability to seamlessly blend with various interior design styles. Whether you prefer a classic, modern, or eclectic look, wooden floors can adapt and enhance the overall design scheme. In classic interiors, our darker floors can evoke a sense of tradition and luxury. In modern settings, our lighter shades are sleek and minimalist and create a clean and sophisticated ambiance. For those with more eclectic tastes that are not so easily defined, our range is so extensive that we know we will have just the thing. Unlike other flooring materials, like carpet and vinyl, wooden flooring is the ultimate in versatility and allows you to merge different design elements harmoniously.
To illustrate the versatility of wooden floors, let’s look at some examples. In this kitchen, Europlank Teak is the perfect base for this room and blends seamlessly with the more traditional touches. In contrast, the Europlank Herringbone design is used to great effect as a feature that flows through this modern home. Meanwhile, in this Keith Hay show home, the Kahrs Oak Nouveau White is the perfect surface for enhancing the light that comes into the home, creating an even brighter and more welcoming feel.
Our engineered wooden floors are available in all sorts of colours. Current trends show a preference for natural and muted tones, with grey, blonde, and honey shades gaining popularity for their ability to complement a variety of design styles. But take a look at our range, including our Beyond Retro Collection, and you’ll see that you can go back in time if your interior design is inspired by the look of yesteryear. In other words, and as we’ve already said, if you have the trend then we have the floor.
Here’s another trend to consider: smaller homes. New Zealand homes are becoming more compact, primarily through necessity as sections shrink in size. This gives us yet another benefit of our wooden floors and why they’re extremely popular as part of the interior design plan for so many New Zealand homeowners: they play a crucial role in creating an illusion of space within different rooms. Our light-coloured floors, in particular, can make small spaces appear larger and more open, and in contemporary Kiwi homes, this is highly appealing. In contrast, dark hardwood floors can add a sense of cosiness and intimacy to larger rooms. Choosing the right floor tones based on room size and natural light conditions is essential for optimising the visual impact of wooden floors.
Unlike fleeting design trends, our wooden floors have an enduring quality that transcends time. Investing in wooden flooring is not just a practical choice; it’s a commitment to long-term design appeal. As interior design evolves, wooden floors remain a constant, providing a foundation that can adapt to changing styles. The added advantage of choosing an engineered wooden floor from The Wooden Floor Company is durability and low maintenance that are built into every beautiful floor. As far as we’re concerned, floors that are as easy to care for as they are on the eye will never go out of fashion!
