7 Flooring Trends to Try in 2017

As Esspada Collection always offers the latest flooring options in Sydney, with a wide selection of flooring styles, designs & textures. We believe that a compelling interior design starts from the floor up.

Our flooring options include timber, vinyl, laminate, carpet & hybrid floors. Check what the 7 most popular floors have been this year so far, and are projected to continue trending, below.

1. Hybrid Floor

Hybrid floors are a flooring product that is very new in Australia which is taking the market by storm. It is 100% waterproof, which now means that you can have a uniform floor running throughout your whole house, including the bathroom, adding an element of uniqueness to your home, and leaving your friends envious.
Esspada Collection’s hybrid floors are manufactured with ceramic technology that nearly doubles the floors hardness and durability without sacrificing its visual appearance, pliability or affecting the thickness of the wear layer. These hybrid floors are also topped with an Anti Microbial coating, making them a popular choice for healthcare, hospitality venues and schools, as well as families with young children. The amazing variation in colours and timber look and feel make hybrid floors a versatile and sophisticated option, that is only growing in popularity in 2017.
2.Vinyl Tiles

Vinyl tiles and planks are quickly becoming a much more popular choice than vinyl sheeting and this is due to a couple of reasons. Vinyl tiles are much easier to install, which makes them perfect choice for those DIY projects, saving you money on professional installation. Vinyl tiles and planks also come in a wide selection of colours with a variety of textures, and give the appearance of real timber boards while offering the hardwearing durability of vinyl.
All the vinyl tiles and planks at Esspada Collection are commercially rated, meeting all Australian standards in safety and slip rating, so even if you decide to modernise the look of your home and not a commercial premises, you can rest assured that the floor will last, looking amazing for many years to come. These tiles and planks now come in a beautiful range of natural woodgrains and stone look finishes that achieve a sophisticated and luxurious look, while saving you the costs of buying real timer or stone.
3. Laminate Flooring

Developed as an alternative to timber flooring and a wooden feel, laminate flooring has the advantage of the being hard wearing and providing a more scratch resistant surface. There have been improvements being made to laminate flooring so that it is more moisture resistant, which has been its biggest weakness in the past. There are a wide range of gorgeous colours to choose from at Esspada Collection to suit the decor of your home.
Apart from having a more scratch resistant surface, the reason that it is trending well this year is because it is quite economical. This makes it a popular, cost effective choice for investment properties because of its hardwearing properties.
4. Chevron Flooring

A wooden floor in the house adds to its warmth and decorative accent, and this is exactly what Chevron flooring does. If you are looking to add an element of French chic to your home, Chevron flooring is the floor to choose. It is a timeless classic that is coming back into homes all over Sydney. Chevron flooring is a durable flooring option that requires little or no maintenance and is perfect for those of you who want your house to standout from the crowd. It comes in a number of different colours to fit cohesively in both classical and contemporary spaces, inspiring awe in to all your guests who come to visit you.

5. Carpet Tiles

Carpet tile is a perfect flooring option to fill your office or bedroom, and are ideally suited for commercial properties as well as domestic applications such as workspaces and garages. They are manufactured to deliver high performance day after day.
It offers great flexibility and is easy installed. It is also very practical and easy to replace, as you do not need to replace the whole carpet if a section is worn out. Esspada’s range of carpet tiles also feature bleach resistant fibres and heavy duty pile combined with elegant contemporary designs.
6. Engineered Timber
Esspada Flooring | Castle Hill
Engineered timber floor is becoming a hugely popular flooring option, and has overtaken solid timber as the primary timber choice. The process of choosing engineered timber is much easier and more fluid, compared to solid timber, which why it is trending in recent years. Engineered timber comes as a finished product and does not require the costs of having it sanded and polished. Further more, it does not require an acclimatisation period in the intended space that it will be installed. It does not suffer the same expansion issues that solid timber has and does not require top nailing, yet has the same sturdy feel that solid timer has.
In the last couple of years, matte finish and semi-matte finish engineered timber has been becoming much more popular because it adds an element of warmth and texture to a home that a glossy finished timber cannot do. While engineered timber is very high quality, if it is treated carelessly, it can scratch. However, in timbers with matte finishes, these scratches are not visible as it blends in with the grain and texture of the wood. Esspada Collection’s exclusive engineered timber has no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) in its manufacture, or any other harmful substances such as formaldehyde, so it is a perfect solution for young health conscious families with children who love playing on the floor or families with allergies.
7. SDN Carpet
Esspada Flooring | Castle Hill
Solution Dyed Nylon Carpet has recently become on of the most sought after carpets because of its durability, ease of cleaning and amazing softness. It comes in a stunning variety of different colours, to suit the colour pallet of any home or commercial space. It does not shed any fibres like wool does, and adds a cosy element to your home that will be heaven sent on those cold winter nights.

"Met with Ray who recommended a brand of floor boards to us. He put in the extra effort in finding an off-cut sample so we could take it home to see how it looks like in the house. The installers were polite and professional. They even completed the floor in the bedrooms first so that we could bring in our bedroom furniture as they thought it might rain that day."
