The key trend that we have been notic­ing is the in­creas­ing at­ten­tion on the use of nat­u­ral, sus­tain­able and healthy ma­te­ri­als. With peo­ple be­ing more and more sen­si­tive about the impact of chem­i­cals on health, there has been a move to­wards nat­u­ral as well as be­nign ma­te­ri­als, which do not con­tain harm­ful chem­i­cals.

The lux­ury mar­ket is pre­fer­ring nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als such as real wood over imi­ta­tions, stone over tiles, real leather over faux leather etc. In terms of colour trends, there is a clear shift to­wards pas­tel, lighter tones and greys in the wood floor­ing seg­ment. In the wood sec­tor, the at­ten­tion is on prod­ucts de­rived from sus­tain­able forestry. Ease of main­te­nance is also one of the key de­mands from the sec­tor, although it can be seen that peo­ple pre­fer nat­u­ral over syn­thetic even though it might re­quire a bit more main­te­nance.

The lat­est Span floors CW en­gi­neered hard­wood floor­ing has a unique plank con­strucɵon fea­tur­ing birch hard­wood core with a sim­i­lar back­ing, which makes it very suit­able for high hu­mid­ity vari­aɵons in the In­dian cli­mate.
