A Guide to Matching Your Floor to Your Home’s Design Style

What style flooring to choose

Matching your floor to your home’s design style is the perfect way to create one cohesive, beautiful space. Different materials work better in different rooms, and with different interior design styles but luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring is a versatile product that can be used in any room of your home and will always look great.

 

In this blog post, we will discuss the best vinyl flooring for every interior design style. We will also provide tips on how to achieve each look and give you ideas for the perfect vinyl flooring match!

Traditional Country Style 

Traditional country style is all about comfort and simplicity. It is all about using natural materials, muted colours, and cosy fabrics. To achieve this look in your home, it is best to add furniture and extra elements that are made from natural materials. 

 

The lighting should be warm and inviting, and the overall vibe should be nice and cosy. Use amber or warm white bulbs to add a warm glow to your rooms and consider multiple smaller light sources rather than one large one.

 

For vinyl flooring, we recommend a classic look like our Country Oak. With its stunning grain detail and natural colour, this option will bring a touch of country charm to your home. It is particularly attractive in large open-plan kitchen/living rooms because it can really tie the space together.

Scandinavian Style 

Scandinavian style is all about minimalism and functionality. This design style is characterised by clean lines, muted colours, and simple furnishings. To achieve this look in your home, carefully select a small amount of furniture and other pieces that have interesting lines or features but which are simple in design. Naked woods, glass and brushed metals are all perfect for Scandinavian style. 

 

In terms of the lighting, anything with a sleek, modern look will add to the overall aesthetic. Consider LED spotlights or even floor lamps with simple lines for the perfect look.

 

For vinyl flooring, we recommend choosing a light-coloured option that will help to brighten up your space. The perfect vinyl flooring match for a Scandinavian style is definitely our Arctic Maple flooring. With its grey tones and wood grain detail, this vinyl flooring option is perfect for creating a minimalist look in your home.

Minimalist Homes

Minimalist home design is all about simplicity and functionality. This design style is known for its clean lines, simple furnishings, and neutral colour palette. To achieve this look in your home, it is best to use furniture that is sleek and modern and which will pop when contrasted with a white or light colour scheme. You will need to add carefully selected art and ornaments to add some personality to the space but make sure not to overdo it.

 

When choosing the lighting, look for sleek and modern fixtures that will complement the overall aesthetic of your space. Make sure to illuminate any areas you want to highlight such as art pieces or architectural features. 

 

For a minimalist home, we recommend choosing our Black Ash vinyl flooring. With its warm, classic colour and wood grain detail, this vinyl flooring option will help to create a sleek and modern look in your space.

Modern Style 

Modern homes are designed for functionality and practicality. They utilise clean lines and simple designs to create a space that is both stylish and easy to live in. Typical features include the use of muted colours, sleek furnishings, and minimal decoration. To achieve this look in your home, it is best to use furniture that is both stylish and comfortable. You will also need to make sure that you have plenty of storage to keep your home organised and tidy.

 

The lighting in a modern practical home should be designed to create a bright and airy atmosphere. Look for fixtures that are sleek and modern, and which will help to illuminate your space. Consider adding some accent lighting to highlight any areas you want to showcase.

 

For flooring, we recommend choosing a material that is both durable and easy to clean. Our Black Slate vinyl flooring is the perfect choice for a modern practical home.

Antique Design Style

An antique design is all about creating a space that looks like it has been pulled from the pages of history. This design style is known for its ornate furniture, vintage accessories, and rich colour palette. To achieve this look in your home, you will need to find furniture and other items that have an antique feel to them. You can either purchase these items from a vintage store or look for new pieces that have been designed to look like they are old.

 

Look for vintage fixtures and fittings, or even consider a chandelier. Lighting fixtures are often used as accent pieces in antique style homes but make sure that your ceilings are high enough or the room will look too busy.

 

For flooring, we recommend choosing a material that looks like real wood or stone. Our Bleached Larch vinyl flooring is the perfect choice for an antique design style. With its light colour and wood grain detail, this vinyl flooring option will help to create a space that completes the period look.

Industrial Style

From lofts to renovated warehouses, the industrial style is all about raw and exposed materials. This design style is known for its use of metal, wood, and concrete and unique original features such as exposed brick walls and beams.

 

To achieve this look in your home, it is best to use furniture that is made from raw and exposed materials. You can either purchase these items from a vintage store or look for new pieces that have been designed specifically for these spaces.

 

For lighting, look for fixtures that are made from metal or wood but that also have an exposed bulb like you would see in a warehouse or factory. You can also use track lighting to highlight any areas you want to showcase.

Open Plan Style

An open plan kitchen/diner/living room is the perfect choice for those who love to entertain. This type of space gives you the opportunity to create a cohesive design that flows seamlessly from one area to the next.

 

When designing an open-plan space, the first thing you need to consider is how you want the different areas to function. You will need to think about where you want your dining table and chairs to go, whether you want a separate living area or if you would prefer one large open space. 

 

Once you have decided on the layout, you can start to think about the décor. The right choices will depend on the overall style of your home but it is important to remember that this is a shared space so you will need to choose furniture and accessories that are both stylish and practical.

 

For flooring, we recommend choosing a light-coloured material like our Smokey Maple vinyl flooring. This will help to create the illusion of more space and also make the space feel more open and airy.

Manor House Style 

Manor houses are known for their grandiose design and opulent décor. This design style is typically associated with the old British aristocracy and is often seen as being quite formal. However, it is possible to have fun with this style if you are careful with your choice of furniture and accessories. 

 

To achieve a manor house look, the first thing you will need to do is create the right mood. A log fire or an open hearth will give your home a rustic feel and also help to make the space cosy. You should also make sure that your furniture is comfortable with soft furnishing and lots of cushions and that your windows are dressed with heavy curtains.

 

For flooring, we recommend choosing a material that looks like real wood or stone for an authentic look. Our Priory Oak vinyl flooring is the perfect choice for a manor house style. With its dark colour and wood grain detail, this vinyl flooring option will help to create a space that looks both luxurious and rustic.

This design style is known for its luxurious furnishings, lavish accessories, and opulent colour palette. To achieve this look in your home, you will need to find furniture and other items that are both beautiful and functional. You will also need to make sure that you have plenty of space to move around and that your dining room can comfortably seat all of your guests.

 

The lighting in a grand dining room should be designed to make the space look as large and open as possible. Look for chandeliers or other light fixtures that will help to create a feeling of luxury in your space and consider adding some accent lighting to highlight any areas you want to showcase.

A Sophisticated Games/Entertainment Room

A games/entertainment room should be designed to be a fun and inviting space where you can enjoy spending time with your family and friends. These rooms are some of the best in the home for putting your own personal stamp on the design. As well as choosing your favourite games and entertainment items, you can also have fun with the décor and incorporate bold art pieces and unique furniture.

 

You will need to make sure the layout gives you and your guests plenty of space to move around and that there is enough seating for everyone. If there is a central feature in the room like a pool table, make sure it is well lit so that you can see what you are doing. Besides that, choose lighting that will help to create a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.

 

For flooring, we recommend choosing a material that is both durable and easy to clean because these rooms tend to see a lot of action.

Contemporary Bathroom Design

Contemporary bathrooms are all about clean lines and simple designs. To achieve this look, it is best to use furniture and fixtures that are sleek and modern. The colour scheme should be kept fairly neutral, with maybe a pop of colour here and there. Tiles, chrome fixtures and glass are all perfect for creating a contemporary bathroom. 

 

Choosing the right lighting in your bathroom is also an important decision you will need to make. For a contemporary bathroom, we recommend choosing bright, LED lights. These will help to create a clean and modern look in your space.
