Did you spot us?

Well it’s been a busy week yet again here at Polyflor at Home HQ but Friday has finally arrived!

We noticed that Grand Designs Magazine have picked up on an increasingly growing trend with design and architecture on their Twitter feed this week, (keep your eyes peeled for more details on this fabulous trend next week,) and have picked up on the Polyflor at Home Pinterest board – did you spot us?

We know at Polyflor at Home that there are still common misconceptions with luxury vinyl tiles, however the Colonia and Camaro ranges have been developed to help you feel really at home, and offer highly authentic decoration representing natural elements while covering many of today’s trends. The designs, performance and attractive prices of our LVT products show the market and naysayers why there has been such a rapid increase in LVT flooring being chosen over the past 18 months, which is something that is showing no sign of stopping. To echo this, our customer installations have been pouring through our Twitter feed as usual this week, and we’ve spotted some lovely uses of LVT across people’s kitchens, hallways, living rooms, entrance halls and bathrooms. It’s great to see our flooring being laid within areas which demand high-end design, but at the same time, high performance and durability.

If our blog inspires you to choose Camaro or Colonia flooring for your home then what better way is there to get a feel for the flooring than taking advantage of our free sample service! For more information on this service, feel free to call us on 0161 767 2551 or when you’re looking through the Polyflor at Home website and you see a floor you like, simply click on the ‘+’ button

Before we bid you adieu, we are pleased to announce that our blog is growing in popularity each month, so there’s no better time to share your hard work if you want to get your shots included in our installation round-ups for all to see!

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.
