Here at Rivendell we help hundreds of customers each year serving both the domestic and commercial markets. As with any consumer goods the trends and buying choices of customers for flooring are constantly changing.
The technology behind the production of carpets, vinyl or wood flooring is also continuously being improved and tweaked. Manufacturers are constantly researching how they might make a flooring more resistant, easy to maintain or produced in a more environmentally friendly way, whilst colour palettes and style of flooring also evolves each year with culture and fashion.
So, here are just some of the changes and innovations we believe we will see more of in the flooring market as we go into 2020.

When planning a renovation project, whether remodelling the living room or undertaking a commercial fit out, the tremendous choice of flooring to consider can be overwhelming. No more so than when it comes to Wooden Flooring.
We are often asked by customers for “wood flooring”, not realising that the phrase encompasses a wide range of flooring types including laminate, parquet, solid or engineered boards and now also Bamboo.
In this post, we look at the different types of wooden flooring available, explain how they differ and highlight the pros and cons of each. You can’t go far wrong in remembering that wood is a species, not a colour and for that reason, we embrace its uniqueness.
