The Revival of Classic Flooring Styles

By , On , In Flooring Trends

The world of interior design is forever evolving. Trends come and go, but some classic styles have an enduring charm that transcends time. One trend making a strong comeback in contemporary spaces is the revival of traditional flooring styles. From elegant herringbone patterns to the sophisticated allure of terrazzo flooring and the timeless appeal of vintage inspired tiles, all of which are making their mark in modern interiors. Join us on the journey as we explore the resurgence of classic flooring styles and how they seamlessly integrate into today’s aesthetics.


The elegant herringbone pattern has stood the test of time, which originated from the intricate parquet floors of historic European Estates. The V-Shape, zigzag pattern creates a sense of movement and sophistication that is sure to compliment any design style from traditional to modern. The visual design created by the geometric arrangement makes herringbone flooring a popular choice for those seeking a classic yet dynamic aesthetic.


From old world to modern chic, terrazzo dates back to ancient times. It is a composite material made up of marble, quartz, glass, and other materials, which are set in concrete and polished to a smooth surface. The unique texture and visual appeal have sparked a revival in contemporary designs. Designers have brought terrazzo into the 21st century by experimenting with vibrant colour palettes, larger sizes and innovative applications. From bathroom floors to kitchen countertops, terrazzo adds a touch of luxury and timelessness to any space.


Checkerboard pattern stands out as a bold and timeless choice, creating a striking statement that seamlessly blends retro charm with a touch of tradition. This classic motif, rooted in centuries of décor and design history, has resurfaced in contemporary interiors, proving its enduring appeal.

Compared to intricate patterns, the checkerboard motif is refreshingly simple to execute, making it a versatile choice that transcends design boundaries. Its timeless aesthetic effortlessly complements a range of design styles, from the sleek lines of modern spaces to the bold maximalism of eclectic interiors. Whether you’re revitalizing a mudroom, pantry, or laundry room, introducing the checkerboard pattern injects a sense of fun and sophistication.

Black and white will remain a staple, however the possibilities are endless when it comes to experimenting with colour. Play with vibrant hues that suit your style to transform an ordinary room into an expression of your creativity. Try it out in different applications as well, such as a backsplash or your outdoor living area!

Tile Patterns & Palettes:

Contemporary spaces today are embracing geometric shapes, but with a modern twist. Large-format geometric tiles in muted tones or bold contrasting colours create a playful and eye-catching focal point. By infusing 70s-inspired tile designs into your modern décor, you are tapping into the nostalgic aesthetic that resonates with the bold and expressive spirit of the era. From geometric patterns to earthy tones and playful mosaics, these styles are a nod to the past while adding a touch of retro chic to contemporary spaces.

The revival of classic flooring styles demonstrates the enduring appeal of timeless design elements in contemporary interiors. Herringbone patterns, terrazzo, and vintage-inspired tiles seamlessly blend the old with the new, creating spaces that exude elegance, charm, and a connection to the past. As we embrace these classics in modern design, it’s clear that some things truly get better with time!
