Textured Tiles: A Touch of Elegance

Embracing Modern Innovations in Tiling

Tiles have come a long way, folks! Today’s textured tiles, like the Omnistone range, are true chameleons – they not only mimic the appearance of natural stone but also its feel, thanks to advanced reactive glazes.

For those seeking practicality without sacrificing style, Homestone tiles offer incredible slip-resistance, ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. And for the eco-conscious, check out Earp Bros’ Onix Ecostone mosaic tiles – made with 98% recycled glass, they’re as green as they are gorgeous.

Natural Fiber Flooring: Back to Nature

Exploring Sisal, Seagrass, & More

Natural fiber coverings like sisal, seagrass, and coir offer a unique blend of beauty and durability. Sisal’s robust texture is perfect for high-traffic areas, while seagrass, grown in seawater-flooded fields, is a biodegradable and sound-absorbing wonder.

Coir, with its tough coconut-husk make-up, presents intriguing patterns like ribbed and herringbone. And for an exotic touch, consider abaca (related to the banana palm) for its sustainable and sturdy charm.

Hybrid Flooring: The Best of Both Worlds

Timber Looks with Practical Perks

For the timber-lovers out there, hybrid flooring is a must-see. This innovative option combines the aesthetics of wood with the resilience of laminate and vinyl. Hybrids resist temperature-induced expansion and contraction, making them perfect for different climates and high-use areas, including bathrooms.

They’re tough, waterproof, and low maintenance, ticking all the right boxes for busy households.

Upcycled Carpets: Comfort with a Conscience

Eco-Friendly & Stylish

Carpets are synonymous with comfort, but have you heard of PET carpets? Made from recycled plastic bottles, they’re as eco-friendly as they are cozy. They come in lovely neutral tones and various styles, offering both softness and durability. It’s comfort you can feel good about, both underfoot and for the planet.

Eco-Friendly Cork: Comfort and Sustainability

A Modern Twist on Classic Cork

Modern cork flooring is not just sustainable; it’s stylish too. Harvested without harming the cork oak tree, cork is a biodegradable option that’s kind to the environment. Its unique structure provides a cushioned feel, ideal for places where you spend a lot of time standing, like kitchens. With a range of colors and patterns now available, cork is making a strong comeback.

Engineered Timber: Stylish and Strong

Affordable Elegance in Timber Flooring

Engineered timber is a fantastic alternative to solid wood floors. It combines a top layer of solid timber with a plywood core, offering both durability and style. The variety is ever-expanding – from extra-wide boards to intricate patterns like chevron and parquetry. Royal Oak Floors’ Intrinsic Black, for instance, offers a unique, deeply coloured timber that adds a dramatic flair to any room.

Next-Gen Rugs: The Beauty of Bamboo Silk

Silk-like Sheen at an Affordable Price

Bamboo silk is taking the rug world by storm. This material, derived from bamboo stalks, offers the luxe look, and feel of silk without the hefty price tag. It’s stronger than pure silk and can be blended with Tibetan wool for added texture and resilience. The rapid growth of bamboo makes it a sustainable choice for those looking to make an eco-friendly statement.
