The living room is a space where you can create a comfortable and stylish atmosphere. Choosing the right flooring is key. Luckily, the charming character of natural stone tiles, the classic warmth of solid oak flooring and the versatility of porcelain tiles, gives you the foundation to find the perfect flooring for your space.

Natural Stone

Natural stone tiles, with their innate opulence and enduring charm, offer a way to bring out the best in your main living space for all to enjoy.

Talis Tumbled Marble in a chequered pattern brings a touch of elegance to a hallway or throughout your living area. The interplay of classic marble with a tumbled finish creates a visually appealing setting with a timeworn appearance. This chic and sophisticated flooring option effortlessly blends with various decor styles, adding a sense of luxury and refinement.

Terracotta flooring is a great option for use throughout living areas as it exudes warmth and character. The earthy tones create a lasting look using its natural variations to add charm, while the material’s thermal properties ensure comfort throughout the year. Whether laid in a classic square pattern or in other styles such as our Fleur or Parquet options, Terracotta brings a welcoming touch to the hallways, kitchens and living spaces, making it a stylish and timeless choice.

Wood Flooring

Our solid oak engineered flooring range, available in planks and parquet, boasts natural patternation and envelops the living space in a warm ambiance. Wooden flooring presents an inviting atmosphere for all, coupled with the added comfort underfoot.

Solid oak remains durable in the face of everyday use, guaranteeing a long lasting investment that ages gracefully over time, as wear imparts character to its enduring charm.

With choice of a diverse array of tones to cater to individual preferences and interior design schemes. Our collection spans from the gently brushed surface of the Chatsworth, the subtly burnt edges of the Woburn, and the distinctive dark tones of the Blackden.

Our tailored selection ensures a perfect match for every aesthetic. With a focus on quality and craftsmanship, our varied wooden flooring tones and burn levels add an extra layer of customisation, allowing you to create a unique and inviting atmosphere in your living area.

Porcelain Tiles

Porcelain tiles present themselves as a flexible and easy to care for flooring choice, providing an ideal blend of visual appeal and practicality.

Porcelain tiles, available in a myriad of designs and patterns, seamlessly adapt to various design themes, from modern chic to rustic charm.

An excellent substitute for natural stone and one of our most popular porcelain tiles, the Polvere range showcases the look of an aged limestone. The edges are slightly distressed to create the semblance of a tumbled limestone, featuring subtle detailing to enhance the overall impression of authentic natural stone.

The resilience of porcelain makes it resistant to stains, scratches, and moisture, ensuring a living room that remains effortlessly beautiful with minimal upkeep. To keep your grout lines looking tip top all year round, we do recommend use of our Grout Protector Spray

In conclusion, selecting the ideal flooring for your living space is a crucial decision that involves balancing aesthetics, practicality, and personal preference. Natural stone, wood floors, and porcelain tiles each bring their own unique charm and benefits to the table.

Natural stone radiates timeless elegance and offers a touch of nature’s beauty. It can withstand the test of time and adds a sense of luxury to any room.

Wooden floors on the other hand, provide warmth and a cosy ambiance. They are versatile, complementing various styles, and can be refinished to prolong their lifespan.

Porcelain tiles emerge as a resilient option, available in an array of designs, with some replicating the look of natural materials. They are highly durable and offer a practical solution with minimal upkeep.

Ultimately, the decision comes down to your specific needs and preferences. Whether you opt for the charm of natural stone, the warmth of wood, or the practicality of porcelain tiles, investing time in making an informed decision will ensure a flooring choice that not only enhances your space but also stands the test of time.
