Keeping Up With the Trends

Do you forget that flooring is the essential component of creating a beautiful space? When you look online for inspiration for your interior design choices, do you take a second to consider how the flooring is playing into the look of the room? The flooring market has adapted to complement current styles such as colours, textures and sizes. With this market evolving, looking into the best floor trends to create your dream home is very important. It can be overwhelming to find that perfect look when you have a budget in mind, so the best place to begin is where you can have all the designs at a cost-effective price.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

If selection is everything in your flooring, luxury vinyl flooring tends to be the first and last place you will look. The reason is that they contain a vast selection of replicated designs from real hardwoods to stone and marble effects.

Brands such as Karndean click vinyl flooring, Invictus and Polyflor perfectly mimic the natural beauty of wood, stone, slate and marble and are used in many commercial and residential interiors. These flooring tiles are world-renowned for their sound and heat insulation, durability and moisture resistance, making them the number one choice for both bathroom and kitchen installation.

These tiles can create timeless patterns that make your home look Victorian in design, without shelling a fortune on real wood and the chemicals needed to treat them.

Laying Patterns

If you are looking for a change, the directional patterns of your flooring can be a really big part of the process. You can choose to lay straight or go in an abstract pattern for that added character to a space.

Hallways and greeting rooms have certainly swayed towards a more abstract installation for vinyl flooring and enhancing the space. It is a bold and fun design that highlights the home perfectly. Abstract designs from certain luxury vinyl brands may require a professional installation that will cost a bit more, but they are certain to be installed right the first time and stay that way for decades.


Vinyl such as Luvanto luxury vinyl flooring is easy to keep in shape with a simple sweep and mop as little as once a week.

Each brand has certain guidelines and you should get a care guide from your supplier to ensure that certain chemicals are avoided if the brand has a negative reaction to them. The good news about vinyl is that it rarely requires any form of expensive chemicals to clean, as warm soapy water tends to keep it looking healthy for its long lifespan.
