Move over, stripes – there’s a new print in town

It started on the spring/summer catwalks with polka-dot sundresses, and now – as so often happens – interior designers are taking their cue from the fashion world. Dotted bedding, rugs, wallpaper and soft furnishings are everywhere right now, and the demand for this classic print keeps growing as we rediscover just how versatile and appealing it can be.

Forget the oversized monochrome ‘Minnie Mouse’ prints of the 1950s; dots circa 2018 are far more subtle and grown-up, with small-scale, barely there spots offering a softer take on the look. Our Dots cushion vinyl flooring from our trend-led Bubblegum & Liquoricecollection is a perfect example. Available in classic black, white or an elegant shade of duck-egg blue and boasting a subtle repeat pattern, it offers a stunning contemporary look while still retaining a sense of fun and playfulness. It’s a great choice if you don’t want the highly decorative look of patterned tiles or rustic wood, but you’d like a little more to your floor than a plain block colour.

Available in 2, 3 or 4-metre widths to suit a variety of spaces, our Dots cushion vinyl is fast to fit, making it possible to give a tired-looking kitchen or bathroom a fresh, modern makeover in a matter of hours. But the real beauty of Dots is that like all Avenue vinyl it’s so easy to clean; most marks can be removed with a damp cloth, while its Superguard coating protects against stains to keep even the palest floor looking pristine for years to come.
