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.

Our Latest Fantastic Customer Installations!

So it’s been a couple of weeks since our last post of customer installations and in that time we’ve all finally started to experience a summer, hurrah! We’ve been dying to share this strong and varied collection of fantastic customer installations with you all since last time so let’s get straight in to it.

It’s a real joy to see how customers continue to look to the Camaro and Colonia brochures for inspiration for how the flooring can be laid, but also how people are thinking outside of the box with their own creative designs. It shows how diverse the LVT Collections are and how tailored you can really make them. For more inspiration on how you can get the look be sure to check out the Polyflor at Home website, or if you’re an avid ‘pinner’ (or even beginner,) check out our Pinterest Board.

Interestingly this week we have a before and after shot from CJC Flooring, which shows a 1930s brick red tile being overlaid with Camaro Portico Limestone in an entrance hall. The effect is staggering, and as you will see it completely lightens the space whilst also giving the hall a warmer, modern and open feel.

We have also spotted a growing theme of some very cute cats being fans of the Camaro flooring ranges!  A couple are included below, but for more be sure to check out our twitter feed. You will spot a very comfortable-looking cat on top of some Camaro boxes! – which made us ponder; why exactly do cats love boxes? 🙂

As always keep more of your installation photos coming through either by tagging @Polyflorltd  in your tweets or e-mailing them over to us direct on lvt@polyflor.com. Oh, and if you spot any pets enjoying the flooring too be sure to include those too! This has got us thinking about pets, and specifically interiors for pets in the home..keep your eyes peeled for more on this one!

Enjoy this beautiful weather everyone, and stay safe!

House Shaped Dreaming

As you may have noticed in last week’s round up of customer installations, I mentioned the increasing trend in house-shaped designs and objects. Ranging from house-shaped coasters, to house-shaped terrariums, and recycled house-shaped post-it notes to house-shaped architecture, this design trend is becoming more and more popular within the home.

And it’s not just us here at Polyflor at Home HQ who are as elated about this, our trusty design experts and design forecasters at Grand Designs Magazine are as well! They have homed in on this fabulous and growing trend, which we noticed last Thursday when they tweeted:

The idea of including house-shaped objects within the home alludes to the idea that house and home is a lot more than bricks and motor. It infinitely bridges the gap amidst the two and creates a strong and loving relationship between both house and home. We are presented with two completely different ideals here, two which evoke different feelings and emotions, but in order for each to exist and their existence to be complete, one must come with the other.

This has opened up the gates for contemporary and minimal design to provide warmth, and comfort to living areas and to really make you feel like you’re at home, which can often be hard to achieve within a modernised living space.

It’s interesting to see that an angular a-shape (one of our favourites :)), can allude to these feelings as it does, and we love how this very simple, but powerful notion has provided us with the following design-brilliance:

This is just a snippet of what we’re spotting each week, and we can’t wait to see what we next discover!

If you spot any house-shaped architecture, or general design we would love you to share them with us on here; just simply leave us a comment underneath. Also don’t forget, if you want to keep track of what we’re spotting then check out our dedicated board on Pinterest! We also have some fantastic ideas and design inspiration on there for every room in the home to help you get the look.

 

 

 

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.

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

I’m afraid we have been suffering from some technical issues on our blog over the past couple of weeks so there’s been a slight delay in sharing the latest customer installations.

So let us all cast our minds back to when the sun was shining and Polyflor at Home HQ was flush with some beautifully sun kissed faces after that scorching weekend! Hopefully our next one is around the corner.

As it starts to brighten up there’s no better time to get those home renovations completed, something which is being echoed each week via our Twitter feed twitter.com/polyflorltd . Last week saw a wonderful mix of wood, tiling and stone designs from the strong favourite-Camaro range.

We in particular love the Camaro Ocean Slate farm house installation where the different hues and patterns change the look of the floor at any given angle.This provides the room with true depth and gives it a wonderful bespoke feel.

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.

More Picks from This Month’s Customer Installations!

Well, we’re almost at the end of April already! And, we can tell we’re coming up to summer after the increase in the home improvements we’ve already seen on our Twitter feed  (twitter.com/polyflorltd). There have been some beautiful installations over the past couple of weeks consisting of a healthy mixture of Camaro and Colonia across the home.

We’ve also seen some creative thinking with LVT brand Expona. This flooring which is typically installed within a commercial setting has been installed within a sitting room where a stark contrast between the flooring and block white walls has been created, ending in a very impactful result.

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.

Enjoy this selection and keep your eye out for the next lot!
