While one of our big and bold formats might be the floor you lust after, it may not be the best for your room. Unfortunately, sometimes size really does matter.

While one of our big and bold formats might be the floor you lust after, it may not be the best for your room. Unfortunately, sometimes size really does matter.

Here at Avenue we make sure that we have all the latest styles - and some old classics - covered in our cushion vinyl flooring, but that’s just half the story and we need to make sure these designs work in all size and shape of home, from flats right up to family homes. The scale of the design has a huge impact on how the floor looks, so you definitely need to think ahead a little on this.

Smaller rooms work best with narrower plank and smaller tile formats where the repetition can create an illusion of widening and lengthening the room. Similarly, wide formats and large tile sizes are best used in larger rooms and open plan spaces. These designs need the room to ‘breathe’ for the desired result to be achieved and they’ll just look out of proportion if you try and install them in a small bathroom or galley-style kitchen.

If you’ve fallen in love with a particular decor, don’t fear, most of our designs are available in a similar large or small version, so that you can get the look you want in the size that’s right. If you’re unsure of what size you need, our Inspiration section features floors in all different size homes, so is a great way to find the proportions that are perfect for you.
