One of the most popular tricks up a designer’s sleeve is to make a small or dark room feel instantly larger with a light and bright floor. Whether it’s a compact kitchen, dingy dining area, narrow hallway, north-facing bedroom or windowless bathroom, laying pale or neutral flooring will instantly lift the room, creating the illusion of added space.
It’s also perfect for creating a Scandi look or cottagecore feel, complementing all styles of interior, from classic to contemporary and everything in between. Wood and stone-effect LVT is an ideal choice, as there are so many nicely natural shades to choose from.
Take our White Ash from the Spacia Collection. Its soft chalky grain looks stunning laid in a parquet style, adding extra textural interest underfoot. A versatile wood-effect, it’s ideal for enhancing the character of a period home or bringing an artisan look to modern spaces. Team with mid-century furniture, pared-back soft furnishings and simple lighting to allow your floor to take centre stage.
For small or narrow galley kitchens that could feel cramped and closed in, it’s easy to visually expand the space with stone-style LVT laid in a random pattern. Tempus Soothe, Harmony and Embrace from our Signature Collection is a marbled off-white design that not only makes this room feel instantly larger but it also brings a rustic vibe to the space, too.
In the bathroom, enhance and brighten a space with one of our Terrazzo stone-effect options from our Spacia Collection. This Amalfi design displays a more decorative style with earthy coloured chips that are scattered through in a mixture of dense clusters and soft sparse areas creating movement against a light concrete base. It’s a great option for those wanting to lighten up a space whilst also creating a statement.
