A blend of minimalism and Japandi design, minimaluxe interiors offer a pared-back, simple aesthetic that embraces a new wave of luxury, one that’s far removed from the use of darker colours, metallic features and shiny, hard surfaces. The trend is about soft textiles, muted colours and high quality, efficiently produced materials meaning you can have more for less in your home. A great way to bring this interior trend to your personal space is through the use of flooring; and many of our LVT collections are perfect for this quiet, simple look that so many of us are turning to.

Super realistic wood planks

Undoubtedly one of the best ways you can use your flooring to introduce minimaluxe design to your home is with a truly authentic, realistic wood plank that’s not only luxurious but practical too. Our collection of beautifully hand-crafted designs with ultra-realistic wood grain textures are tactile and stylish; as well as being durable and sustainable. Our recently launched Croft Oak range is the epitome of this interiors trend – with its restful palette of eight colours and natural textures.

Take Croft Oak Rosehip for example; with golden blonde highlights and warm tones, it partners beautifully with a neutral backdrop, full of creamy hues and cosy textiles, resulting in a simple yet luxury look especially in a kitchen or dining room.

Elegant herringbone

Continuing on the wood effect trend, herringbone flooring can create a more modern feel to make kitchens or open plan living super stylish in both contemporary and traditional homes. It’s a look that is often seen as elegant and luxurious, and the benefit of an LVT herringbone floor is that they’re incredibly durable too; another key component to the minimaluxe aesthetic. We’re really proud that our MSeries floors are not only conscious in their design but low maintenance too, resulting in minimal upkeep and cleaning.

From the homely, multi-tonal design of Croft Oak Brindle Herringbone to the smoky grey, contemporary hues of Hurst Herringbone Earl Grey, a herringbone floor is an easy way to bring luxe design to your next home renovation project.

Experiment with contrast and colour

Minimaluxe can also be characterised by playfully contrasting natural textures with colour. It could be soft, warm textiles that are styled against a harder surface or placing rugged materials against sleek marble; or in the case of flooring, combining colourful pattern with authentic woods. We love a feature floor that uses both our wood effect LVT and a pattern to create areas of difference and interest. For example, Northmore Sable Black beautifully pairs with Natural Plank Cove in this elegant and cosy dining room set up, and allows for this experiment with contrast.

Muted, soft colours

Opting for a soothing, natural colour palette in your home is a brilliant way to create that minimaluxe vibe, and this can easily be achieved through your flooring choice too. It’s best to take inspiration from nature when it comes to the colours in your home; think soft greens and earthy beiges or taupes. The key is to keep things neutral and tonal; we love Lattice Pear Tree Green for its whimsical pattern and calming green tone, for example.

If you want to stick with the true neutral colours, Walbrook Avebury Stone is a great option; not only does it introduce a natural hue with its warm stone colourway, but it also boasts a heritage-inspired pattern that looks super luxe in both modern and period properties. Or, you could go ultra contemporary with a stone effect LVT floor, such as our Nuance collection, that is both subtle and elegant and gives the look of a stone, concrete floor yet with added warmth and practicality; ideal for a bathroom or kitchen space.
