Contrasts

Sometimes opposites attract, and contrasting monochromes are easy to add a crisp, clean finish to your interior design.

This example shows how a tumbled stone effect floor can add the dynamics of charcoal blacks while adding the textural interest of solid stone effects.

Delightful Dining

A mix of natural finishes with black flooring and furniture help create a cocooning space resulting in a welcoming space for everyday dining and entertaining. We've showcased our Vesuvio floor, which adds a tile effect pattern with all the charm of rich charcoals.

Geometrics

Treviso from our Titanium XT collection highlights how shapes and contrasting grout effects can add instant spa appeal to bathroom areas. This tile effect not only draws the idea and adds interest to an otherwise plain space, but its cushion vinyl composition also makes it easy to cope with the odd spill and mishap, making it perfect for bathroom zones.

Slate Greys

The appeal of slate features heavily within kitchen and bathroom design. However, using natural slate floors can often mean a costly initial investment and ongoing maintenance that might not work for modern households. Rather than dismissing this material, we've created a slate-effect floor that gives all the aesthetics of slate without the hassle. A simple wipe can tackle most spills and mishaps.
