Monochrome in the Home

The bold pairing of black and white is a classic colour combination that is always in style, making it an ideal choice for a sleek and sophisticated interior design scheme.

Flooring is a great place to start when using the dynamic duo of black and white to create a striking monochrome look in the home. The luxury vinyl tile and sheet ranges in our Polyflor at Home collection offer stunning wood and stone effect designs in both black and white hues – use the View by Shade function on our website to browse and order free samples.

It is important to strike the right balance between light and dark when creating your monochrome space, too much black can sometimes make a room feel dark and confined, whilst too much white can look cold and bare. For example, a black floor brings dramatic impact when offset against contrasting clean white walls and modern furniture. Keep the rest of your décor simple to create a minimalist style living space.

Our black stone effect Camaro and Colonia LVT designs look fantastic when paired with a crisp white or grey grouting strip (see below). We love the simplicity of the pure white tiles in this bathroom, whilst the printed wallpaper in this dining room adds a polished, retro style.

The Noir Slate design from our Designatex collection is another great choice if you are looking to achieve a graphic, monochrome look. This design is available in a sheet format for a fuss free installation.

A strong monochrome colour scheme can look very stark, to soften this style simply add grey tones, prints or textures. Adding a strong accent colour or metallic shade can look particularly eye-catching against a black and white backdrop. The red wall in this kitchen perfectly complements the chequerboard design floor created using Camaro luxury vinyl tiles.
