Industry information and customer preference is always showing us a few new ideas for home flooring. Some of the recent ideas include:
Wide Plank Timber flooring Perth,
People who like the natural look of woodgrain, or natural patterns and the occasional knot, often prefer wider planks for flooring. These wide planks include more of the wood’s organic timber pattern. Many feel this adds character and definition to a room.
Neutral colours have always had their place with floors and walls. The neutral look allows other elements of the room décor to be prominent. It also allows for many different styles of décor that don’t require a change of floor or wall colour. The neutral floor gives a clean backdrop for many different décor styles.
Grey is a neutral colour that has become popular with home flooring over the past few years. It is more modern looking than white or crème, and works well with bright décor or a more subdued look.
This uses wooden tiles to create intricate geometric patterns. Parquet was popular in dancefloor, churches and reception area a few generations ago. It became popular again when people realized that there was no limit to the patterns that could be made.
Cork and Bamboo flooring Perth
We are glad these are becoming popular as they are both environmentally sustainable choices. Cork is a bark that can be harvested from a tree that continues to grow. Bamboo is a grass that grown to maturity in only seven years (hardwood takes decades). These are steadily rivalling hardwood for home flooring.
Cork help make a room warm and quiet, it is a natural insulator and is soft underfoot. The disadvantage is that the soft surface will suffer damage from furniture, high heels or any sharp objects.
Bamboo is a hard flooring option that lasts for decades. Some bamboo is prone to scratching, but fully mature bamboo (seven years growth) that is well processes will resist this.
