One of the simplest ways to cosy up any living space is to add layers of texture with throws, cushions, curtains and rugs. It’s easy to overlook the fundamental element of this room – its flooring – yet this is one of the best ways to enhance your interior and create instant impact with plenty of surface texture underfoot.
Start with the right material, colour and finish and the rest will soon follow. With the Autumn/Winter season underway, now is the perfect time to plan for a warm and welcoming living area, ideal for cosy evenings in with family and friends.
Wood-effect LVT is a really versatile flooring option that offers many benefits, both aesthetic and practical. Take our premium Script Maple Silver design from the Signature Collection. Laid in a pleat style, it brings instant character to a period home or modern new-build and works wonderfully with rich, heritage wall colours, classic cast iron radiators and squishy sofas and armchairs in intense velvet shades. There are various laying patterns you can choose for a personal touch as well as stripping borders and motifs if you want to extend the look into the dining room or hallway.
For a light and airy feel, consider adding wood panelling to walls and painting in a warm off-white then team with the honey hues of our Gotland Oak from the Form Collection. These beautifully organic wood effects look stunning in classic or contemporary settings and are sure to bring a textural finish to your space, especially when laid in a distinctive basket weave design.
