New on the floor

By Flooring No Comments

We’ve known for a while now that pine or the Scandinavian look is hot. And new on the market from Norwegian company Moelven, a new series called ‘Fabelaktig’ in pine wood for the interior. I’m just loving the wood wall paneling, it’s something we see more and more of these days giving any room instant coziness. These floors in the ‘taktløs’ serie are pretty cheeky as well.  I would say for those looking for some individualism in the home.   Everyone can relate to wood in the home. It gives life and it gives warmth, whatever the type of wood, in any home there’s nothing like barefooting round the home on a wooden floor.

The sunshine is suddenly shining through my window here, must be a good sign for a sunny weekend:-) Happy weekend everyone.

Bathroom tips#2: To tile or not to tile?

By Bathroom, Flooring No Comments


That is the question when contemplating floors to the bathroom.  When choosing bathroom flooring the main consideration of course is moisture. Is it durable? How does it feel under your bare feet? How easy is it to clean? Is it tiles or vinyl?

Vinyl is a very exciting product on the market these days. There finds countless colour options and designs. Vinyl comes in sheets or tiles. The tiles can be applied without help from a professional and the bad with the tiles are that they can after a while slowly turn up in the corners if not probably laid down in the first place. While the sheet vinyl gives a lovely seamless floor but does needs a professional to fit it probably on the floor without a seam and that can be difficult if done alone.

Porcelain vs ceramic tiles: It’s important to know that porcelain is denser than ceramic and is less likely to chip. This should not be the ultimate determining factor when deciding whether to go with porcelain or ceramic because ceramic tiles can vary in quality. Wood look ceramic tiles are fabulous to use on the floor now a days, they look so real you can almost not see the difference and they feel like wood as well. They’re easliy laid down by yourself and easy to keep clean.

But selecting the best tile size can be a challenge for anyone. For smaller rooms keep in mind the less you see of a floor the smaller the room will look! The tiles laid at an angle on the floor will as well give the room a bigger feeling. And not to forget the bigger bathrooms as well, you need to take care that all the tiles, fixtures and cabinetry harmonize and balance together.

Who said that there has to be tiles on the walls why not try a vinyl wallpaper in the bathroom. Picture inspiration found via Trendir

Epoxy resin floors

By Flooring No Comments
























































Pictures found via Marie Claire Maison.

I came across these pictures the others day from a London based designer Ab Rogers Design who works a little out of the ordinary. In this fabulous ‘rainbow house’ in London he has turned an average home into something totally wild and amazing. The floors have come into their own right with an original design and then layers of epoxy resin to give it that extremely smooth, shiny and hard surface. Epoxy resin floors are mostly used in industrial buildings (because of its’ hardness), but is more and more popular to use in the private household. It does come with a warning though –it can be very slippery when water is on the surface. But we can be careful right!  Think what fantasy can achieve…


Have a great day!
