This new year is announced under the sign of well-being on the renovation side: sustainability, health, ecology, unity… so many catchy and decisive themes that stood out at DOMOTEX 2020 (world reference exhibition for floor coverings). Quickly discover here 10 modern wall and floor trends ready to inspire our interiors in 2020!
CLIP-ON PVC SLAT: ALWAYS AT THE TOP OF THE BEST SELLERS LIST
The clip-on vinyl plank continues to conquer all hearts and eclipses laminate parquet a little more. Unsurprisingly, because it has some amazing features : the clip-on PVC slat is solid, silent, warm underfoot, easy to install and available in all kinds of decors. Perfect for residential and professional renovations!
The Forbo Allura vinyl plank range (which we told you about in detail here: Exclusive interview with the Forbo designer: discovery of the new 2020 collection! ) will also be completely renewed in the spring and will have to impress you with these exclusive new designs !
RIGID PVC PLANK: A NEW GENERATION OF MODERN FLOORING
This flooring with excellent dimensional stability has all the qualities of a clip-on vinyl plank and more! The rigid PVC slat is therefore distinguished by its rigid core, generally allowing it to be installed in front of bay windows . And of course, it has superior UV resistance , to avoid any discoloration under the effects of the sun.

CARPET: THE TEXTILE FLOOR HAS CERTAINLY NOT SAID ITS LAST WORD!
We don’t often rhyme carpet with modern flooring and yet: the false rumor accusing it of being responsible for allergies being finally denied, carpeting is making a comeback in bedrooms and living rooms. More and more soft and less and less thick, it is now dressed in creative designs worthy of great natural fibers (sheep’s wool or goat hair) and even sequins! Enough to make your interior shine with a thousand lights!
NATURAL MODERN FLOORING: MAKE WAY FOR SISAL AND SEAGRASS!
Allied to our eco-responsible homes, natural soil is increasingly invading our interiors. Prized for its natural composition, it also seduces with its unique touch and aesthetics, and that’s not all: this antibacterial coating is also particularly valued for its insulating qualities .
Choose from: seagrass, water resistant and natural humidity regulator; or sisal, softer and available in various colored shades. These authentic floors will appeal to all lovers of natural, minimalist or exotic decor and will match very well with ethnic and African motifs, for example.
TILES: WE SEE THINGS IN A BIG WAY!
On the ceramic side, the trend is in the giant format (tile of more than 60 cm, at least in length)! Popular on the floor as well as on the wall, the XL tiles offer more unity and therefore a sleek and contemporary style (there will be fewer tile joints): the room seems to be visually enlarged! To continue this momentum, we adopt this type of tiling in light shades , both in small and large spaces. Who said tiles couldn’t be a modern floor?
THE TERRAZZO EFFECT RETURNS TO COLOR OUR HABITAT
This year, the terrazzo has every intention of hitting home! This material, based on cement, natural stone and colored marble , has found its place on crockery, stationery and decorative objects of all kinds. On the renovation side, we adopt this chic and whimsical pattern both on the wall with wallpaper and on the floor, especially in humid rooms such as the kitchen and the bathroom.
NATURAL RAW MATERIALS ARE POPULAR!
We were just talking about sisal and seagrass: these are not the only ones to shine on the natural scene! You can also count on wood, linoleum, bamboo, stone, cork or even wool to create your oasis of well-being. These non-polluting coatings contribute to a healthy habitat and are becoming more and more essential as the floors of today and tomorrow . We find of course the classic engineered parquet but we also like to discover its cousin, the papyrus floor, for the moment still artisanal and handmade!
MODERN ACOUSTIC FLOORING: COMFORT AT ALL COSTS!
Still in this idea of well-being at home, it is essential to deal with the problem of noise, one of the first nuisances encountered by the French on a daily basis. You can improve the sound insulation of your interior thanks to an acoustic floor, such as textile coverings but also certain vinyl floors . Our favorite ?
THE WALLPAPER TURNS GREEn.?
The new 2020 wallpaper collections are likely to feature Pantone’s color of the year , Classic Blue, and so help us infuse a serene and dreamy atmosphere into our interiors. They will also give pride of place to tropical, vegetal and floral motifs – enough to perfectly complement our Urban Jungle -inspired decoration ! Finally, the models of Japanese wallpaper, Art Deco or texture (leather, wood, marble and brick) will once again be talked about: a cocooning and natural atmosphere on the program!
If you haven’t yet heard of panoramic wallpaper , this XXL wallcovering that offers a decor on the entire wall like a giant painting, take a quick look at our selection! Cool and quirky , it brings a spirit of unity to space, both on the residential and commercial renovation side, and comes in a crazy multitude of prints. Living room, bedroom and kitchen, or restaurant, hairdresser and office… your walls will certainly not go unnoticed!
