Design & Function Locked In – with Camaro Loc

CamaroLocLetterGraphicsWe are very excited to present you with our brand new innovative collection of interlocking vinyl tiles, Camaro Loc.  Launched under the highly regarded Camaro Luxury Vinyl Tile brand, the Camaro Loc collection is practical and beautiful for use in all internal areas of the home including kitchens, bathrooms and living spaces.

The unique locking system eliminates the need for adhesion conveniently reducing installation time. Influenced by today’s home interior trends the collection of 15 popular wood and stone designs feature R10 slip resistance brilliant for preventing slips in the home, protecting you and your family.

To support the recommended installation methods for interlocking vinyl flooring such as Camaro Loc, we have also developed a new Vinyl Loc Underlay. Installed beneath interlocking vinyl flooring, Vinyl Loc Underlay is on hand to prevent planks becoming damaged and reduce impact noise by 19dB – great for keeping noise down between neighbouring rooms.

As you would expect from a range launched under the Camaro brand we have produced a beautiful new collection of installation photography presented in our brochure which is also available to view online:

As usual product samples, shadecards and copies of the brochure can be requested free of charge on our website or alternatively on the dedicated Polyflor Samples Hotline 0161 767 2551.

If you have any questions about Camaro Loc or any of our Polyflor At Home ranges feel free to get in touch via any of our social media sites or alternatively email the Polyflor Marketing team at lvt@polyflor.com. We hope you enjoy browsing the new collection!

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!

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.

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!

April’s Latest Customer Installations!

Just over a week has passed since our last post and already we have some fantastic customer installations to share! The flavour of last week was the Camaro collection by far, but we also had a hint of Colonia, Expona and some arty shots of Polysafe Hydro to throw into the mix! As always, all images have been wonderfully documented by our trusty flooring installers and retailer friends via our Twitter account (twitter.com/polyflorltd).

We’re always intrigued to see the ways in which people are using the flooring, and from a design perspective, every installation is inspirational in it’s own right. The lightness created in some of the shots is staggering and the flooring can be seen to complement the varied décor perfectly within the different applications.

The adoption of Grouting Strips in some of the installations has enhanced the authenticity of the overall floor, and so, really bringing the installations to life. In comparison, the Feature Strips used within one of the installations provides a bolder and more graphic look to the floor.

Please 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.

We hope you enjoy them as much as us!
