Flooring forms the base of your home’s décor. Whether you are an HDB flat dweller or landed property homeowner, flooring can make or break the way your personal living space looks and feels, and could add value to your property.
If you are looking to give your living space a dignified look without having to splurge on flooring, eco resilient flooring is a wonderful option. An affordable, long-lasting and popular option for environmentally savvy and design conscious homeowners, eco resilient flooring comes in many grades and colours for every homeowner’s needs and desires. Here are some design ideas how you can switch up your living space with eco resilient flooring.
#1. The minimalist look
Clean, clutter-free, seemingly spacious and neat, it is hard to go wrong with the minimalist look. Combining functionality and practicality with simplicity, the minimalist look is essentially the art of being able to live comfortably and aesthetically live with less.
#2. The industrial chic look
Industrial chic is an interior design style that marries aged, utilitarian design with worn textures of iron and wood to create a style that is rugged yet stunningly attractive. Start with a neutral colour palette (i.e. grey and white), and add in some warmth (i.e. browns, teak, mahogany) to your living space. The overall colour palette and look will reflect the colours and elements found in an industrial space.
#3. The rustic European look
There is something undeniably charming and irresistible about the rustic look of old 18th Century European homes. The cosy yet vintage-looking living room. The picturesque kitchen. The peaceful garden. For those who love their living spaces to exude both a sense of warmth and traditional homeliness, what could be more charming than the rustic European look?
#4. The elegant look
For the sophisticated and well-heeled urbanite who prides work, reading and wining as his or her pastimes, the elegant look is ideal. Not only does it reflect one’s classy taste, but also exudes a sense of elegance that is popular among the affluent community. From adding a fresh coat of paint to your walls and soft velvety pillows to crown moulding and teak coloured floors, these are some of the many ways you can beautify and add value to your living space. The Floor Gallery has an extensive range of eco resilient flooring in different shades of beige, brown and red, textures and thickness for all homeowners to choose from, there is something for everyone.
#5. The Modern Victorian look
Owning a Victorian-style home is a dream come true for most homeowners. Resplendent and elegant, it is the ideal home style and can potentially add value to your home. But owning a Victorian-style home comes with a hefty price tag only the well-heeled can afford. Unless you can afford to remodel your home, how about owning a modern Victorian-style home?
Like the classic Victorian-style, the modern Victorian-style is chock-full of character and do not require extensive remodelling to bring the nostalgic appeal of the bygone Victorian era into your living space. Creating a modern Victorian home can be achieved by carefully mixing both modern and Victorian styles together. Planning is needed to ensure that the final look and colour palette of your personal living space is well thought out, not simply mashed together. To make your living space look brighter and bigger, opt for a light colour palette (i.e. white, yellow, baby blue, lilac or pink) for your walls and furniture. Flooring-wise, we recommend you opt for a dark woody theme from our list of eco resilient flooring to add contrast to the subtle and light colours of your wall and furniture.
