Brand New Creative Edge Inspirational Brochure

Good Morning,

Due to the incredible demand we have seen from all our customers looking to create new ways to lay their Camaro flooring, we have created a brand new 44 page brochure packed full of high design flooring layouts.

We have called this supplement our CREATIVE EDGE and its is available to view online now.

Creative Edge brochure

To help you to understand the complexity involved in creating each layout, each design floor is accompanied by a 1, 2 or 3 star rating. This easy to follow system illustrates the different installation options available from simply mixing wood and stone tiles together (1 star) through to detailed bespoke cut design floors (3 stars).

To order your free copy of the new Creative Edge brochure, or samples of any of the shades featured, contact the dedicated Polyflor Samples Hotline on 0161 767 2551, or visit the Polyflor at Home or Polyflor.com websites.

We are always on the lookout for fresh ideas and customer installations, so if you have recently had your flooring changed then please send us your photographs via Twitter at @Polyflorltd, post them on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/Polyflorltd or email them to info@polyflor.com. We regularly upload our favourites onto our blog so you may even find your installations featured right here!

Our Cure for The Monday Blues!

Monday’s more often than not fall victim to a rather awful reputation, but here at Polyflor at Home HQ we want to try and blow them away for good (…with a little help from the wind outside!)

Let us start with one of the greatest and most anticipated celestial displays; the Perseid Meteor Shower (has anyone spotted Google’s Doodle today?). Known as the “fireball champion”, this beautiful wonder of our universe is made up from the debris stream from comet Swift-Tuttle and at it’s peak, observers can view 60 to 100 meteors in an hour! Activity is said to peak tonight, but will continue until Wednesday. For some advice on how is best to view the shower check out this fantastic resource by clicking here. And, if you’re lucky enough to experience parts of the display, let us know by leaving a comment, and if you manage to capture any shots we’d love to see them!

Our second way of banishing the blues is by our most recent and fantastic customer installations! Over the past couple of weeks we’ve seen some lovely applications of the Colonia and Camaro flooring ranges across a number of rooms within the home. In this batch we have an eclectic selection of woods, stones and tiles which really shows off the diverse selection of finishes in each of the LVT ranges on offer from Polyflor at Home.

We have even spotted two installations of Bevel Line flooring in the stunning French Nut Tree decor! This fantastic collection of bevel edged luxury vinyl tiles is predominantly installed within commercial environments, but you can really see how easily adaptable and flexible the flooring is to be able to be used within a home.

Oh, and if those blues are still present then we suggest you do a search for ‘purrito’ 🙂

 

 

World Cup Fever Strikes!

Well it is official, the 2014 World Cup has kicked off and is well under way! Although England have not had the best start we’ve all enjoyed getting into the spirit of the tournament here at Polyflor at Home HQ;  it’s been a great past week!

Now we don’t expect to see any Brazilian themed flooring installations to appear on the Polyflor twitter feed any time soon 😉 but we have really enjoyed what we have seen these past couple of weeks. We’ve had a range of Camaro and Colonia installations shared from our wonderful flooring contractors. One stand out installation includes a combination of Camaro wood and stone within a few living areas. However what is innovative and interesting is that the the wood has been laid at a 90° angle to create two separate areas within an open plan living space. Also, reverse colours have been utilised on the borders of the tiled areas which creates a stark contrast to the overall flooring, creating a fantastic overall design to the installation as a whole.

Another joy to see in this batch is the angle of the shots that have been taken.  We love seeing close-up shots of the different finishes and textures.

As always, do carry on sending your shots through to us at @Polyflorltd or drop us an email to lvt@polyflor.com, attaching your pics. We find them inspiring here at Polyflor at Home HQ and so do our customer base.

The Latest and Greatest Installations!

Well it’s straight back into the routine of a full week again. We hope you’ve enjoyed these recent shorter weeks from all of us at Polyflor at Home HQ; we most certainly have!

Thanks to our Twitter feed at twitter.com/polyflorltd we can see our flooring contractors have been busy again. Some wonderful installations from the Camaro and Colonia collections; a beautiful mix of stone, tiles and wood in this post which is a joy to see. We’ve also got an action shot of some Camaro White Metal Stone being laid within a conservatory which really opens the area up and provides additional brightness to the space.

Also thrown in, is a bespoke Expona installation whereby Vintage Timber has been specially cut to create a stunning herringbone effect within a very lucky home’s hallway. We’d love to hear what your thoughts are on these installations; in particular the different ways in which they’ve been used.

As always, do carry on sending your shots through to us at @Polyflorltd or drop us an email to lvt@polyflor.com, attaching your pics. We find them inspiring here at Polyflor at Home HQ and so do our customer base.

Herringbone – a true classic

It’s true, an authentic, aged and well trafficked herringbone timber floor is a piece of art and can be the centrepiece of even the grandest of rooms. Thankfully many of these traditional floors are being discovered and lovingly restored to their natural beauty within all types of buildings. Shockingly, many of these floors were covered with concrete, screed, underlay or other types of materials, rather being displayed and lived with. Of course, we don’t all have the benefit of living in such a historic property or have the budget for a bespoke new parquet floor, but the herringbone design really is achievable to all, no matter what type of home you have.

As a manufacturer of floorcoverings, we understand the importance for all types of floor designs, from the traditional to the contemporary and from the warmest tones to the coolest hues. It takes all sorts to suit all tastes and no taste is wrong! Here, we showcase a selection of herringbone floor designs, simply created with modern materials. All of these designs are pretty much available off the shelf and can be installed quickly without the need for too much upheaval.

You’ll see that the herringbone design can be used to create very different moods, depending on the floor colour, size of plank or surrounding interior scheme and furniture. We hope you enjoy and find this useful in demystifying the achievability of herringbone.
