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.
