So here we go deeper into winter, and in amongst the dark, cold days, you need to add a touch of colour and excitement to your home. Here at Best at Flooring, we want to help you bring a creative touch to your décor, and to keep you on point. Here are three of our favourite trends for autumn and winter that will help to bring some warmth, comfort, and most importantly, style to your life.
A lovely solid wood, or engineered floor is a piece of art, but in the winter, it can look a little sparse, and chilly, standing there all alone. So why not introduce a little touch of comfort and warmth to that sleek expanse, by adding a rug to the mix.
There are many reasons to bring a rug into your home, with aesthetic, comfort and functionality all on the bill. Utilise the style and presence of Flair Rugs’ Pearl Mustard Rug to make your lounge all the more cosy. Its luxurious, thick silky and long polyester yarns sit deeply as a glorious pile, while its shade is very much the colour of the season. We also recommend a neutral rug, such as a Calvin Klein Sahara Mercury, which utilises grey tones to bring a cultured touch to your home, especially with the softness of its wool yarn construction.
A simple but stylish patterned floor can provide a spot of originality and flair to a home or office. It offers a chance to move away from the regular, more one- paced, single coloured flooring, and to bring a fresh new perspective this autumn and winter. We have spotted some cracking examples of intricate floors across the world, with Windsor Castle standing out. Here at Best at Flooring we supply some of the luxury vinyl tile world’s finest creative ranges and products, including Moduleo’s Mood selection, and Amtico’s wonderful array of custom combinations and signature products. It’s important to bring some brightness to your home when the weather is less than appealing outside, and even a subtle dual coloured vinyl tile such as Karndean’s Clip Fiore, can offer a jolt of colour when you most need it.
With its origins in one of the most famous French palaces, Parquet style flooring has come back to popularity this autumn/ winter. The historic aesthetic is available in a fine selection of patterns, species of wood, both engineered and solid, and sizes of boards.
Some of our favourites from the collection at Best at Flooring are produced by the good people at Ted Todd. The British brand have managed to combine the elegance and magnificence of the Grand Trianon, alongside modern contemporary style. Herringbone is one of the main names in the game this season, and the Fumed European Oak Herringbone, ticks all the boxes for us. It has a glorious interwoven pattern that can compliment any décor or interior, and adds a touch of individuality to a classic flooring option. Its engineered wood construction provides long-lasting quality alongside the natural beauty of solid wood – a fantastic combination.
So, that’s three of our best tips to bring a dose of style, brightness and originality to your home this winter. We hope that they have warmed the cockles and provided a spot of inspiration.
