Design opportunities you don’t want to miss
In the last few years, opinions about vinyl flooring have begun to change drastically. In fact, it has been redefined and is making a splash in the interior design world. New production techniques have made vinyl comparable to the look and feel of natural materials. With vast design options that are both as aesthetically pleasing as they are durable, vinyl flooring is a great way to spruce up your space at an affordable price. But with so many companies to choose from how do you know which one will do the job best? With this in mind, we at Bdesign want to introduce you to Quick-step, a flooring company whose wide selection makes it perfect for any renovation project. Have a moment? Read on to find out the latest news and discover the Top 2021 Vinyl Flooring Trends to look out for this year.
It comes as no surprise that hardwood floors remain a classic. Yet while wood has its appeal, it is known to be prone to problems such as fading, scratches, stains and water damage. Refined and polished, Quick-step’s vinyl wood flooring provides a realistic alternative that will withstand the impacts of day-to-day life. Who doesn’t want to take the stress of their shoulders and enjoy their space worry-free?
In 2021, look out for styles that are either light, distressed or have cool undertones such as grays, blues, and greens. Wood species on the rise such as pine and oak are versatile in colours and can be used for décor styles such as contemporary, rustic chic and more. Our personal Quick-step favourite is the Canyon oak brown. With grey highlights within its oak base, the color variation would create a beautiful accent in any room.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles
We all know that porcelain and ceramic products have been at the top of the tile scene for a long time. Yet with technological advancements, new competitors have squeezed their way in. Luxury vinyl tiles are elegant, long-lasting and offer a stone-like appearance for a fraction of the cost.
These timeless styles are easy to clean, water-resistant and have a warranty of 25 years. Most importantly, they are incredibly easy to install and can be upgraded to have heating for a warm feel underfoot. While vinyl luxury tiles are typically associated with kitchens and bathrooms consider using them in living spaces for a modern look.
The length and width of your wooden planks and tiles can make a huge impact on your space.
Play around with thin, medium, and wide-plank styles as well as different sized tiles to see how they change the appearance of your space. For example, if you are working with a smaller room, consider using styles that are bigger and wider. This trick of the eye is a simple way to enlarge your space and open it up. Before making a final decision make sure to order some samples to make sure that it feels just right!
Don’t be afraid to mix it up! Whether it is hardwood or tile, vinyl flooring offers a cost-effective way to accent your space with different styled trims, mosaics and patterns of your creation. Take the two Quick-step luxury vinyl tiles we mentioned above as an example. A marbled titled floor edged with volcanic rock is a great way to make a statement or simply liven up your space.
If making your own floor designs seems intimidating, consider products that already come in premade patterns. Let us tell you, parquet designs are in! Herringbone, Chevron, Versailles, Castel, Empire, Chateau, Chantilly, Kruis, Weaves – the design options are endless. Take a look at different arrangements to see what works best in your space.
Our insider tip is to not limit patterns to your living spaces. When done right, parquet can make your kitchen or bathroom stand out above the rest.
