What made you decide on an LVT floor for your kitchen project?
We decided on a luxury vinyl floor as we were just doing a quick project on the kitchen to bring it up to date and more our style (the whole project didn’t end up being ‘quick’ but when do they ever?) and so we were working on a tight budget. We also needed something that was going to be easy to clean with two children and a dog, durable as our kitchen is often used as a walkway and of course stylish too!
What or who is your main interiors and decor inspiration?
Houzz and Apartment Therapy are great websites for getting inspiration. I also love to see all the different homes on Instagram, some of my favourite influencers are @comedowntothewoods, @elliebowmer_ and @thiscolourfulnest. I also really love how brands like Mooui are full of colour and find the palettes they use really inspiring.
How did you choose which pattern and colour floor you’d like for your kitchen?
I made the decision to paint our kitchen cabinets a bright orange early on so I was looking for a colour that would work well alongside them. Green and orange seemed like the best combination as it’s one that you often see in nature (another source of inspiration there!) and I knew I wanted a bold pattern as well, so I selected two green options from Harvey Maria and Parquet Hunter Green was the winner.
What difference has the flooring made to your space?
It’s made such a difference. Not only does that space look so much better, the room feels bigger thanks to the pattern of the floor drawing you eye along the room and it has added cohesion to the kitchen too. I feel like the floor is what pulls everything together in here and it provides a great pattern clash alongside the wallpaper too. The floor is really easy to keep clean, even with young children and regular spills we’ve had no marks or scratches.
How easy was the process of getting samples from Harvey Maria and having the flooring installed?
The process was super easy, the samples showed up really quickly and were a decent enough size to get a good feel for the design and quality of the tile.
We installed the floor ourselves, so whilst we did have a few steps to complete (resealing and levelling etc) first, the laying of the tiles was by far the easiest task – just a case of applying the adhesive and sticking the tiles down and we were over the moon with the end result.
What’s next on your home improvement wish list?
Our list is endless to be honest! But next up is to finish off our living and dining area and after that the bathroom looms and I’m pretty sure we’ll be looking to Harvey Maria when it comes to the flooring for in there too!
