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!

Hints & Tips 5. How to highlight features within your room

When planning your new floor installation, you may wish to create at least one focal point, such as highlighting an island unit or following the perimeter of your room. This can easily be achieved by utilising the inlay accessories or the design floor service. For subtle additions, Grouting, Marquetry or Feature Strips can be inlaid as defining and demarcating lines. For more bold and dramatic features, see the bespoke design borders and corners offer within the product brochures. Your installer can provide further information on these options, but we feature many, many ideas within our room set shots.

Hints & Tips 3. Choosing your floor direction

The direction of the installed floor can have a bearing on the overall aesthetic. As an example, to give the appearance of a natural timber floor, the planks can be laid running against the supporting under floor joists, in the same direction as the original floor boards would be. Alternatively you may wish to run them on an angle or in a parquet floor feature, such as herringbone, which will provide a more bespoke appearance.

The stone tiles can be utilised in a number of ways including straight laid, on angles and with inlay strips. For additional ideas, see the Design Floors hints and tips. You should look to discuss this with your installer for full options and advice.

Hints & Tips 2. Consider different surface textures

Each of our products have been developed to replicate the beauty and feel of the natural materials. The wood planks feature a variety of surface textures from a smoother wood grain to heavier and more rustic aged timber effects, matching the relevant type of wood. The stone tiles range from a smooth, sleek finish to natural slate textures and riven stone effects. Window and interior lighting can pick up these surfaces textures as can bare feet, which all add to the authenticity and practicality of the floor.

Hints & Tips 1. Choosing your floor colour

As with the size of the planks and tiles, the colour of the floor can also contribute to the overall general feeling of a room. Dark floors can sometimes appear to make a room seem smaller by absorbing ambient light or can bring a more intimate or warm feeling. Lighter tones, however, can provide a more spacious feel, especially to smaller rooms or areas where there isn’t as much natural light. You should also consider other colours featured within your room, such as walls and furniture as these will complement or contrast with each other. The products featured in the Polyflor collections offer a range of styles from classic to contemporary in a broad light to dark pallet enabling you to meet your requirements.
