Interior Design Trends and Flooring Ideas
If you’ve read our last blog (Picking the Interior Design and Flooring to Match Your Personality), you might have done a bit of introspection and have finally decided you’re ready to transform your house into a living décor of yourself. Here, we go through some of the most popular interior design options and suggest different products to help you achieve your desired look.
A contemporary design is one that harnesses strong lines and empty space to emphasise the various shapes or forms available in contemporary decoration. The neutral colours and polished surfaces offer a masculine energy. A contemporary styled room achieves its spacious feel through smooth, dark flooring such as vinyl, laminate or ceramic tiling.
Often misconstrued for Contemporary, Modern design refers to a stricter style of design created in the mid-20th century that emphasises practicality.
A person going for this throwback style is aiming for functionality first.
Scandinavian design is all about simplicity and clean lines. White walls and flooring provide the basis for this design, which is then contrasted with splashes of colour throughout the décor.
Wooden flooring grounds Scandinavian design and can vary from natural to neutral colours.
This is a good option for social people who prefer intimate spaces.
To achieve this style, have a look at our timber-look flooring options, especially vinyl plank flooring, as it is water-proof and works throughout your home.
Long lines, going in the same direction as your longest wall, on a timber or white ceramic floor will open up the space to offer an airy environment.
This design is great for people who aren’t about collecting a lot of ‘stuff’.
A very popular style at the moment, Industrial is a design style most common in lofts and commercial buildings. The ‘chic’ look is often based on vinyl and dark timber flooring or cement or concrete look flooring. Many of the lines and forms will be defined by ‘natural’ elements such as exposed piping, ducts, or metal finishing. Industrial is well suited for modest people who find beauty in imperfection.
