Your home needs to reflect your lifestyle, so choosing the right decor and flooring is essential to creating a safe, comfortable space. Whether it’s a place to entertain friends, chase around after pets, or create home comforts for the family - the right choice of hard and soft furnishings are key to creating the haven that you crave.

Hardwood Flooring for Big Living Spaces

If you’re looking for flooring that needs to cover a large area, then hardwood flooring may be the best solution. The warmth and colours that real wood flooring can offer allow you to maximise the space, whilst keeping it homely; something that is tricky to do with large rooms.

Available in modern styles as well as more traditional looks, hardwood flooring suits any existing decor and can be softened with furnishings such as rugs, cushions and long drapes. If you’re looking to redecorate the room from scratch, then contrasting textures such as velvet, and colours that complement the wood grain (such as green, grey, white and beige), will create a luxurious, yet practical space.

Zone Out Open Space Areas with Vinyl Tiles

Do you need your living room for different functions? Maybe your living room acts as an office, cinema and dining room? If you have dedicated areas for each, then why not consider creating zones in your living room specific to these areas?

Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are easy to lay, and are available in a whole host of colours, styles and sizes - perfect for giving the illusion of additional space where you need it most. By using this flooring to provide boundaries, you feel organised and others within the home will use the living room spaces as they’re intended.

Maximise Light in Apartments with Laminate

Laminate flooring is such a versatile flooring that it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most popular choices. For smaller spaces or apartments where light is at a premium, choose lighter flooring and accessories to help create a calming area that also makes the space feel bigger and brighter.

Laminate is ideal because it is available in many different thicknesses and effects such as herringbone, plain and even stone - so you’re sure to be able to create the effect you’ve always wanted.

Easy Vinyl Roll for Family Homes

If your home is constantly on the go, then having a key room of the home disrupted for any length of time may be your worst nightmare. Whether you have kids (big or small), furry, feathered and four-legged friends running around, or just a constant stream of feet in and out of the home, there’s a solution that could give your flooring the perfect makeover with limited downtime.

Vinyl roll is a popular flooring choice for busy homes. With its under-foot comfort and stylish designs, it’s not only easy to install but maintenance is super easy. No more worries about muddy paws or sticky hands making the floor a germ-ridden area: simple clean and go. Plus, there’s lots of equipment online to keep your vinyl sparkling.

Engineered Wood Floors Country Cottage Feel


There’s a certain something about country cottages that makes you feel as though you’ve travelled back hundreds of years. Whether you’re in a recently built home or have your very own chocolate-box cottage, engineered wood flooring is a great way to take your home back in time.

From brushed oak to deep grain effect planks, this gorgeous flooring inspires cosy nights in front of the fire, hot drinks and a good movie, so whatever your setting, you’ll be in maximum bliss.

Herringbone Flooring For Grandeur Town Houses

Herringbone flooring is available in all types of flooring materials, from laminate to vinyl, but if you’re wanting a feeling of grandeur then there’s nothing like real wood flooring in a beautiful herringbone effect.

Whether you choose lacquered or unfinished, the quality of this flooring always creates a luxury feel when it comes to your living room. Adorn with gorgeous furniture such as a big coffee table, large sofa and dark painted walls, for true elegance and luxury.
