Floors of the Week: Beautiful Bedroom Flooring

Bedroom flooring

Decorating the bedroom is a fine art - you want to make it look attractive, of course, but you also want it to feel comfy and cosy and welcoming. Many people opt to carpet their bedroom floors, but we feel that this approach can lead to very stuffy results; If you want a chic, modern-looking bedroom, we strongly recommend using laminate flooring instead.

For our latest Floors of the Week, we've chosen four of our favourite bedroom floors for you to take a look at. How would you like to wake up to one of these beauties in the morning?

Floors of the Week: Stunning Laminate Tiles

Ceramic tiles look lovely in the home, but they can be quite tricky to install, requiring all manner of grout and mortar. You could hire a professional installer, of course, but this will add quite a bit to the overall cost of your renovations.

But there is an alternative! If you want the beauty of ceramic flooring without any of the fiddly stuff, laminate tiles can be a great solution - they're inexpensive, they're attractive, and they're superbly easy to install.

If laminate tiles sound like your sort of thing, we think that you'll find our latest Floors of the Week to be very appealing indeed...

Floors of the Week: Spotlight on Laura Ashley

Laura Ashley floors

This week, we’re using our regular Floors of the Week blog to focus on one of our favourite suppliers: Laura Ashley!

As you may already know, Laura Ashley herself was a designer from Merthyr Tydfil, a small town in South Wales. Her penchant for quaint, charming, and quintessentially British styles made her well-known throughout the country, and the company that bears her name is now one of the biggest design brands in the UK.

Now, Laura Ashley’s name is mainly associated with textile designs, but the company also makes a variety of fine floors. Here are four of our favourites:

Floors of the Week: Office Space

Office flooring

The office is associated with a lot of negative stuff - stress, long hoours, and very often a distinct lack of creativity. In spite of all this, though, the office can still be a vibrant, attractive space, and if you're responsible for decorating the office, it's well worth putting a bit of thought into it. A pleasant workspace can make the work itself a little more pleasant, too!

For our latest Floors of the Week, we decided to choose four of our favourite floors for the office. Each of these floors has a bright and modern vibe that still looks very professional - they'll really help to bring a bit of positive energy to your workplace.

(Work from home? Any of this week's floors would be a great choice for the home office, too!)

We love light colours here at Floormaker – as we’ve mentioned before, they really can make a room feel much bigger – but today, we’re turning our attention to the other end of the spectrum.

Floors of the Week: 50 Shades of Grey

Grey flooring

Grey is generally held to be the most boring colour of all. The word 'grey' is synonymous with the dull and the ho-hum, and most budding designers would balk at the proposition of a grey interior.

But grey doesn't have to be boring. In fact, it can be a seriously stunning choice for the modern home! This week's Floors of the Week were chosen to demonstrate the potential of grey flooring - if you thought that grey had no place in your living room, these four floors will give you cause for reconsideration!

Spotlight: 10mm Narrow Board Canyon Cherry Flooring

Canyon Cherry Flooring

You might have noticed this gorgeous design among our Floors of the Week this week - Canyon Cherry Flooring really is quite the showstopper! Narrow board floors are a little unusual compared to the wide floorboards found in country-style interiors, but when your boards have such beautiful depth of colour, the narrow boards will create gorgeous and complex patterns which is what makes this floor so special.

The Canyon Cherry flooring is so stunning that it belongs in a truly beautiful room. We scoured Pinterest to find a room worthy of this gorgeous floor, and we settled on this truly beautiful kitchen for inspiration:

Kitchen floor

As you can see, this beautiful kitchen design allows the floor to do the talking. Our Canyon Cherry design has such warmth and appeal that there's really no need to go over the top when you're accessorising the room.

The kitchen in the photo above has got it spot on, with white cabinets, chrome appliances, and a gorgeous neutral-coloured tile on the wall. Though sparse of colour, this kitchen still feels warm - it's a truly beautiful room!

Use our Canyon Cherry flooring in your kitchen for a comforting, warming atmosphere with a strikingly modern finish. Don't go overboard with bright colours - just let Floormaker's beautiful boards transform your home!

Floors of the Week: Narrow Boards, Broad Appeal

Narrow board floors

As you browse through our Laminate Flooring department, you may notice several products with the 'narrow board' label. While wider floorboards can be great for traditional, country-style interiors, narrow boards will give your floor a very striking appearance that's great for contemporary designs.

With that in mind, here are four of our favourite 'narrow board' floors:

 

Siberian Ash

10mm Narrow Board Siberian Ash


Chocolate flooring

10mm Narrow Board Chocolate


Cavallo oak floor

10mm Narrow Board Cavallo Oak


Canyon Cherry flooring
