2016 was a year with main interior movements from marble and metallics to Scandinavian chalet chic, but 2017 is a new year, and new interior design trends are on the way. The team at Floor Factory have put together this blog to bring you an insight into what to expect this year.



According to stylists, green is strong. From pale apple greens through lime and to emerald, the hues and tones of this colour work will within a home environment Personally, we love the deep, rich emeralds and khakis that team so well with rustic wooden flooring. If you’re not too keen on revamping your entire room with greenery, keep your room understated and try adding cushions and throws to add little pockets of indulgent colour.

Tropical Print

Following the green theme, tropical prints are increasingly popular. The idea of bringing the outdoors inside has seen an advance in forest wallpapers, tropical leaf cushions and exotic, floral lamp shades. Of course, if you aren’t convinced enough to re wallpaper your bedroom, update your white bed linen by adding some cushions and pieces of wall art.


Mixing fabrics and materials can increase interest in your room. For example, a velvet sofa with knitted throws and faux fur is a treat for the senses, but it doesn’t have to be that bold. Why not start with the floor instead? Combine engineered oak flooring with a thick rug to break the space up and enrich the senses of both sight and touch.

Muted Tones

It’s not all bold and bright for 2017. Are the tropical prints are too much for your taste? Don’t have anxiety – muted hues are big for 2017. White, beige, blush pink, nude, and camel are all strong colours this year.


Grey made a stand in 2016 and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. In 2017, we will see a wider variety of tones, with grey and white combinations, grey and tan combinations, and deep grey shades being prominent in a design. A great way of weaving grey into your interior design is with your flooring. Large grey tiles are very stylish for bathrooms, while rustic washed grey wood or laminate is the perfect option for living areas.


Modernised Asian and African patterns are making their way into the tiles of our houses. Combine the geometric trend with the grey trend and go for a mosaic tiled floor for your new bathroom design. A bold statement, yet effortlessly stylish.


Deep, rich, dark wood is a huge interior design trend for 2017, which pairs perfectly with the grey and muted tones as mentioned above. Textured floor is becoming the most popular choice, with the grain of the wood being visible and rough to the touch.
