It’s the most wonderful time of the year; as we edge close to the festive season and prepare to welcome our loved ones for the celebrations, we’ve been turning our attention to making the entertainment spaces in our homes both chic and cosy for the ultimate winter welcome.
If you’re hosting this Christmas, here’s how luxury vinyl tile can bring that snug feeling without compromising on style.
Warm up with wood
A classic parquet or herringbone floor can bring warmth and comfort to high-traffic, busy areas of the home such as the kitchen or dining room where you’re sure to spend plenty of time over the holiday season. Our ultra realistic authentic planks from the MSeries range offer beautifully hand-crafted designs that look and feel like real wood but are more practical and sustainable. The Hurst Herringbone collection creates a modern luxe feel to contemporary and traditional homes, and will immediately transform your space into a cosy haven; especially Torn Bracken and Toasted Oak.
Our Natural Plank collection will add depth and character to entertainment spaces if your home boasts Nordic interiors and Elevated Country styling. Coppice is a popular choice for kitchens whilst Tawn works beautifully in a family dining room.
Dark & cosy with patterned flooring
Dark shades and moody heritage patterns are all the rage, and our brand new Walbrook collection is perfect for this interior trend. Victorian-inspired but thoroughly modern in design, this elegant range of LVT flooring brings rich and heritage tones that immediately inject cosiness into your home. Claystone is wonderfully forgiving whilst remaining super stylish with its brownish hues, and we love Old Green for its subtle tribute to all things botanical, especially when paired with putty, blush tones.
The Dovetail Collection, curated by Neisha Crosland, is another elegant range that is ideal for creating a stylish entertainment space. Ink Black creates a bold statement that works beautifully against trending green and natural tones, especially in a kitchen full of family and friends sipping on bubbly and tucking into canapés. For the ultimate pop of cosiness, why not try Burnt Copper? Perfect for contemporary spaces, it’s bold and beautiful.
Earthy & Natural tones
For a calmer space that still brings cosiness and sophistication, opt for a more neutral palette for your space that will create the ultimate cocoon during these colder months. Again, our wood effect vinyl flooring is perfect for this; we love Herringbone Dormouse with its golden highlights and mid-oak tone.
You can still embrace the joy of pattern whilst keeping the overall tone that bit more muted; Avebury Stone from our Walbrook collection offers a warm hue that looks effortlessly chic alongside a wood plank, whilst Northmore Soapstone is a soft and easy neutral inspired by 19th century encaustic tiles that will enhance both traditional and contemporary interiors.
On-trend dining nooks
Stylish dining nooks are a growing interiors trend; one that allows your physical dining space to stand out from the rest of the room and gives it its own personality and style. As you prepare to have a table full of loved ones sharing in festive treats and raising a toast, why not incorporate a cosy nook into your entertainment zone? By creating a flooring zone or adding a border to your floor, you’ll inject a designer look into your dining area and achieve that sought-after luxe finish.
Combine Northmore Sable Black with Natural Plank Cove for an elegant feature floor that would suit a dining room, or perfectly pair Dovetail Lavastone with Highland for a striking contrast between pattern and wood. A chic dining nook can create a focal point to your room, whilst also elongating the space and giving you the opportunity to mix and match styles that truly reflect your individuality.
