With the winter blues setting in after the excitement of Christmas and New Year, everyone is dreaming of sunshine and thinking about where they are going to jet to for their holidays in 2016.
Using vinyl flooring from our Polyflor at Home ranges and some carefully chosen accessories, you can bring a taste of your favourite holiday destination to your own home.
Here’s a couple of inspirational ideas to try…
Modern City Break
If you dream of living the high life in a bustling city like New York or Paris, then it is easy to recreate the look of those stylish city apartments in your own home with some interior design know-how.
Flooring in grey woods or polished stone effects will give you the on trend look you need for creating the perfect urban home. You could start with Camaro Loc interlocking luxury vinyl tile flooring in Grey Mountain Ash as a starting point for creating your cool palette.
To add the finishing touches to your city inspired living space you could stick to a monochrome colour scheme, invest in some unusual artwork and put your fashion magazines on display rather than hiding them in a rack.
When the Polyflor at Home team are tasked with coming up with names for our latest products, we are often inspired by some of our favourite destinations – Manhattan Limestone and Barça Limestone from our Designatex range for example. These contemporary designs create the effect of slim stone tiles in a sheet vinyl floorcovering, which are ideal for smaller spaces and recreating the look of a modern city apartment.
Traditional Country Retreat
If you are planning on staying on home turf for your holiday this year, take inspiration from quaint cottages and grand country manors in the UK for your home makeover.
Rich, dark woods like Camaro North American Walnut and Country Teak are ideal choices for injecting a sense of history, character and warmth into your home.
Our Country Teak design features authentic grain detail and markings to create an aged effect which looks really striking when paired with traditional or vintage home accessories.
By the Seaside
If you are an outdoors type whose ideal holiday is taking in some sea air, going for walks along the beach and trying your hand at some water sports, then why not recreate the coastal look in your living space.
To achieve this beach home feel, look out for traditional oak effect flooring with fresh, sun bleached tones. Our Designatex Cornish Oak and California Oak designs give the effect of reclaimed coastal timber that has been exposed to the elements.
A Place in the Sun
For those who crave sunshine and heat from their holiday destination, a home that takes design influences from the Mediterranean could help combat the winter blues.
With stone being a preferred flooring choice for warmer climates as it is naturally cool, our vinyl versions give the same effect without being cold underfoot, which is useful when the weather isn’t so beautiful!
Get creative with inlay strips and tile layouts for a unique stone effect floor design – we love the use of the gold feature strip with our Camaro Serpentine LVT for a luxurious and exotic look.
Named after Italian holiday hot spots, Tuscan Paving and Sicilian Oak flooring from our Designatex range feature golden, taupe and beige tones to add that sun kissed feel to your home.
