How to: Choose the Right Floor for Your Space
Flooring is a key element to any room. As it’s unlikely to be changed for a long time once installed, it needs to fit your décor decisions and be at one with the building. On top of that, it also needs to be hardwearing, comfortable and practical for the whole family.
With so many things to think about and a multitude of products available, choosing flooring can be overwhelming, however, rest assured that no matter your type of property or style preference, we can help you find the right floor for your space. Here we’ll guide through 3 simple steps to create your dream flooring design.
Social media has become an amazing resource for home inspiration, with many designers sharing their newest projects and interiors lovers capturing their finished renovations. Instagram is a hive of home updates, making it the perfect place to start discovering new styles and products as well as gathering ideas.
Pinterest, on the other hand, is an app that allows you to save and arrange your inspirations into mood boards. When it comes to interiors, it not only keeps tracks of things you like the look of, providing you with a much more organised approach to decorating, but it’s also a fantastic research tool and the simplest way to help you visualise the end result of a home makeover.
If you’re using social media in your quest for the perfect floor, look at the images you last saved and try to spot any common features – perhaps all the pictures show a light-coloured floor or the same parquet style. Having an idea of what you like is a great starting point in your floor renovation journey.
You can also follow us on Instagram and Pinterest to see how we’ve styled our spaces with Amtico products.
Once you’ve made a shortlist, it’s time to see how the products will look in your home. Amtico’s newly updated Room Visualiser is a digital tool that helps you to find out which different colour and pattern combinations will complement your scheme best.
Exploring different flooring ideas and settings, the Room Visualiser allows you to upload pictures of the rooms you’re decorating, to see exactly what the products will look like in situ.
Through a simple process from the comfort of your sofa, you can change the colour of the product, the size and angle of the planks or even add motifs and borders to create a unique surface. The designs can then be saved, shared with family or even printed, to be used in future projects.
Samples are the best way to see if your chosen tiles will work in your home. Why not download a brochure and explore the huge selection of products on our website? You’ll be able to add up to six free samples to your basket, which will then be delivered directly to your door. Make sure you test the samples by placing them in different areas of your floor and at different times of day, so you’ll know exactly what the product will look like when the light hits differently.
