As we gear up to enter 2023 in style, there is distinct a flavour of excitement in the air relating to interior design. You'll probably agree, it's a welcome contrast to the vibe that came with last new year, which felt a little delicate following emergence from our collective pandemic bubbles. That feeling was very much reflected in the way we styled our homes in 2022, with a lean toward safety, comfort, and cosiness. Happily, these are qualities that most of us are likely to keep in reserve moving forwards—but 2023 also brings with it opportunity for a new wave of playful expression, and we here at Hoff Parquet can't wait to see how our clients might harness that rising energy!
We see that adventurous spirit in Pantone's vivacious 2023 colour of the year, Viva Magenta. It's vibrant and fun, and that richness is ideally suited to the complementary vehicle of warm and timeless wood, such as of-the-moment chevron wood flooring in natural oak. Of course, if a deep hot pink isn't quite your cup of tea, there are plenty of other interesting colour fashions emerging for the year ahead to contrast with elegant engineered wooden floors that will be prized long after this year's trends have passed.
Tried and True Natural Oak Wood Flooring
Yes, there are few aesthetics more perfect for the colourful home than natural oak wood flooring. If Architectural Digest's prediction that we'll all be reaching for a splash of pigment this year is on point, then the soft warmth of nature's most beloved material is bound to remain a favourite investment. Of course, the neutral hues of oak don't have to mean your floor recedes into the background. Opting for decorative herringbone parquet wood flooring or even a wide plank finish can create subtle intrigue that stands up gloriously to the test of time.
A Twist of Geometry Underfoot
Installing patterned hardwood flooring is a truly striking way to make a statement that won't overwhelm your interior. Without a doubt, in 2023, the popularity of contemporary parquetry is set to run strong. Whether herringbone, chevron wood flooring, or a creative custom design, the possibilities are endless. Placing a modern twist on this historic trend, many interior designers and homeowners are delving into the realm or rebellious angles and oversized designs to make their geometric floor choices stand out while still retaining enduring appeal.
A Continuing Focus on Sustainability
With every passing year, consumers become more conscious of their environmental impact and the realm of wood flooring design trends sees no exception. Here at Hoff Parquet, we have long made eco-friendly sourcing and installation practices a point of pride. We see this reverence for nature mirrored back at us by clients who favour our sustainably sourced engineered wooded floors and spectacular reclaimed oak options. If you love the idea of oak but imagine something a little more bold than natural oak wood flooring, the characterful hues and features of reclaimed wood might well steal your heart in 2023.
Reclaiming Spaces With Engineered Wooden Floors
Speaking of engineered wood flooring, an increasing number of homeowners, entrepreneurs, and designers across the UK are embracing the versatility of engineered wood installations for reclaiming previously uninteresting spaces. Did you know that our beautiful engineered wooden floors can be floated over a wide range of surfaces? This makes it easy to completely reinvent a space with minimal structural interference. In 2023, why not transform your least-cherished interior areas into the most inviting with engineered wood flooring?
Chevron Wood Flooring On the Rise
While herringbone parquet wood flooring has long served as the champion among patterned hardwood flooring options—and is certain to forever retain its elevated ranking—it would seem that chevron parquet is this year's new crown bearer. Rather like our new sovereign King Charles III, chevron wood flooring promises to offer a fresh take on time-honoured institution, and as we enter 2023 with a new monarch, we think that this style of flooring is the perfect metaphor for the nation's gentle reinvention over the year ahead. Ultimately, chevron wood flooring is iconic but chic, providing the warmth of wood and the clean lines of a design for today that will serve spectacularly tomorrow and beyond.
