As a buyer in a wooden flooring company I tend to spend a large amount of my time looking at current trends in the market place, with an almost endless supply of flooring products available this isn’t always the easiest of tasks to get right.
When deciding which ranges to bring into stock I will take a number of factors into consideration these include –
- Stocking Requirements.
The new quickstep Massimo is one of those products where the jury is currently out, quickstep as a manufacturer of Laminate Flooring, Engineered Flooring & Vinyl Floors are the BEST hence from a quality and warranty point of view there will be no issue.
EXTRA WIDE & EXTRA LONG ENGINEERED FLOOR BOARDS
The engineered range itself is beautiful with bags of character large knots and all of the aesthetic qualities that you would expect from a solid wooden floor board of this nature. As explained by quickstep “ the collection is characterised by handpicked boards containing large knots, cracks giving a vibrant effect. As the filling is carried out manually the knots will retain their natural authentic character. The result will be that your floor will always have lively variation in colour and structure as well as a charming Rustic appearance “.
One sticking point on the Massimo
There is however one aspect of the range that is making me think twice about bringing it into stock “Will this product be suitable for the majority of customers” ?, I am a little concerned due to the fact that the majority of rooms in the average house are generally sized between 15m2 to 30m2 so is the size and width of the Massimo floor board going to put customers off? Granted in a 40m2 room this engineered flooring will come into its own but these days how many people have rooms that large.
My opinion of the Massimo Engineered Board
I think that we will have to wait and see. I am sure that in 6 Months time I will be eating my words as is usually the case. Quickstep as a company generally get it right with market research and design the main priorities when implementing new colours into their ranges.
It was only a year ago that I was grumbling about all the Grey variations that had suddenly appeared in the brochures however only 12 months down the line we are finding that grey flooring ranges are over taking sales from the more traditional Oak designs.
If I could predict floor fashion for 2018 based on this years sales I would say Rustic, Rustic, Very Rustic mixed in with a little grey. However im sure more will be revealed as we progress through 2018.
