Mix It Up

When you are truly spoilt for choice with the wood and stone effects on offer in our range of luxury vinyl tiles for the home, why use just one stunning design when you can use two or even three?

The beauty of luxury vinyl tiles is that they open up a world of possibilities when it comes to putting together a bespoke floor design that is individual to your home. LVT can be cut into a variety of shapes and placed in many patterns to create a high design, statement floor that lets you stamp your identity and style onto your surroundings.

An effective way of adding impact to your floor is to mix designs together, combining wood and stone in complementary and contrasting shades.

Creating contrast

One of the most popular design combinations we’ve seen is placing a dark wood effect plank alongside a light stone effect tile. The contrast in shade, texture and design works perfectly as the wood brings warmth to a room whilst the stone adds a more contemporary touch.

Working in harmony

Using multiple designs in similar, complementary shades can be a subtle way of tapping into this trend. For example, this offset keysquare design uses two pale stone designs to create a classic but unique look.

For a more unusual look, mix length and colour of the tiles, randomly placing them to create an unexpected effect.

Creating zones and pathways

Luxury vinyl tiles in different designs can be straight laid alongside each other to create zones or pathways in a room. This is a simple way of separating large open plan spaces into different areas, or drawing attention to a feature in room.

This Camaro Loc installation is a perfect example of how LVT can be used to create a pathway or walkway. These chosen designs bring a light and airy quality to the hallway, with the Classic Yorkstone pathway guiding the eye to the door.

If you’re torn between two looks why not try them both side by side? We like the idea of this his and hers bathroom featuring two stone effects laid in different patterns.

A simple but effective way to make a room’s feature really stand out is by using a different LVT design around it, for example like how this darker Camaro Serpentine stone effect surrounds the bed.

A cut above the rest

Polyflor’s state of the art waterjet cutting machine uses a stream of high pressure water to slice through vinyl flooring, making it possible to create intricate and more complex designs. Here’s a couple of examples of looks that can be achieved…

This tri-colour diamond design combines three Camaro shades, Portico Limestone, White Metalstone and Aged Metalstone, for a truly striking and original effect that you definitely won’t see in every home.

We love this offset chevron design featuring Camaro Crema Slate and White Metalstone as it would add a really luxurious and stylish look to a home interior. This pattern would also work well with other wood and stone effect designs from the Camaro and Colonia ranges.

This incredibly intricate dogtooth designs is probably the most complex we have seen but it can be done! Take a look at our previous blog post where we had a sneak peek at how this design looked in a customer’s bathroom.
