Choosing the right flooring — whether it’s a rug for your living room, hardwood for a kitchen or tiles for a bathroom design — isn’t just about function. Style matters, too. If you ask any design pro, they’ll confirm that flooring is an opportunity to show off your aesthetic, be it minimalist or full-blown maximalist. Here, we’re sharing the top flooring trends for 2024, according to industry experts and professional interior designers.

Their flooring trend predictions are as varied as you might expect. There’s an appreciation for natural materials, like limestone and travertine, to ground a bathroom’s design scheme. There’s also consideration for tiles with statement colors and large-scale patterns to inject personality into a space. Of course, you can always go for chic rugs that boast graphic prints or mix low and high piles. There’s no shortage of durable and visually appealing flooring ideas these days.

Take a look below for the complete list, which has all the inspiration you need for a budget-friendly refresh or a full renovation.


Rich Walnut Hardwood


“In line with the resurgence of color saturation, pattern, and traditional design elements, there’s a return to rich, walnut hardwood floors over modern washed gray and bleached light oak. This finish blends beautifully with vintage furniture and decor and adds a historic depth, saturation and richness to any home.” — Kelsey Menoian, Havenly Creative Lead




Rugs With Low and High Piles


“Rugs that mix high and low piles are trending for 2024, proving simplicity can make a statement. For example, the Iman Rug’s unique mix of touchable textures evokes a sense of coziness and comfort, especially for the colder winter months. Adding a neutral rug with various textures and piles is one of the easiest ways to turn your floor into a focal point.” — Ashley Stark, co-founder of Ashley Stark Home and creative director of STARK


Natural Materials


“One that sticks out at me as a perennial style and less of a trend is natural flooring. Incorporating natural elements into a home, specifically new construction, is crucial for cultivating a sense of warmth and an inviting atmosphere. In a project nestled in the Texas countryside, we used reclaimed Texas white oak flooring throughout the home. Paired with French limestone walls and bold marble features, the natural, locally-sourced flooring serves as the keystone for this project’s organic modern aesthetic. We will be seeing a range of natural flooring choices as a leading design trend in 2024.”

— Paloma Contreras, interior designer



Large Shapes and Patterns


“The bold floor is making a massive comeback, especially in black and white. It’s a Hollywood Regency experience that is being refreshed into much larger shapes and patterns. My own line for DUCHATEAU was inspired by the Dorothy Draper styles of the 1940’s but given a more contemporary twist with scales. As seen in RuPaul’s home, they add instant drama!”

— Martyn Lawrence Bullard, interior designer




Wide Plank Flooring


“Flooring with cool tones are way outdated now. Instead, we will continue to see more wide plank wood floors in warm tones. They’ll be paired with warm natural tiles like unglazed terracotta.”

— Jennifer Fisher, interior designer



Square Patterns


“Squares are taking shape throughout interiors. Whether seamless or in a checkerboard pattern, the look is a nod to trending neoclassical style with Art Deco influence. It’s an upscale approach to everyday spaces.”

— Ashley Biscan, interior design and trend expert, Floor & Decor



Patterned Tiles


“Patterned tiles have become a popular trend, because they offer a fantastic way to infuse personality and character into a space. These tiles come in a wide range of designs, from intricate geometric patterns to floral motifs and everything in between. This versatility allows you to find a pattern that suits your style, whether it’s modern, traditional, or eclectic.”

— Marie Cloud, interior designer



Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring


“Luxury vinyl plank flooring is going to be really popular in 2024 because the durability is unmatched. With kids and pets, other flooring can get scratched so easily. People choose this flooring since it’s scratch-resistant and won’t show wear and tear. My own flooring line, Christina Collection Flooring, can withstand high-traffic areas like kitchens and hallways. It will look new for years to come!”

— Christina Hall, interior designer and founder of Christina Collection Flooring



Natural Materials


“Grounding spaces in natural materials create restorative rooms. Honed stone and matte hardwood are essential elements to an authentic design. Rooted in earth tones, limestone, travertine and wood are the warm neutrals that stay fresh season after season.”

— Ashley Biscan, interior design and trend expert, Floor & Decor




“Terrazzo has long been a versatile flooring choice. For 2024, we are seeing terrazzo used in strong pattern play. It’s not just a material for mid-century houses and airport lobbies — this imaginative flooring can be both beautiful and hardy.”

— Martyn Lawrence Bullard, interior designer



Understated Rugs


“In lieu of splashy statement rugs, I expect homeowners will invest in quieter, textural rugs that are custom-sized, which will create a more tailored look, optimize their floor plan and give more longevity to the space.”

— Brian Paquette, interior designer and Ernesta ambassador
