  • 5 Luxury Vinyl Colour Trends To Transform Your Space

    March 15th, 2023

    Gone are the days when one had to choose between limited floor colours. Thanks to the extreme versatility of Luxury Vinyl, you have access to a wide range and variety of colours and styles. From classic wood to contemporary tiles. From sun-kissed hues to rich, dusky notes. You name it – chances are luxury vinyl has it.

    Which means you will hardly have any trouble finding a floor colour that matches your personality and taste. Since Luxury Vinyl is wholly man-made, the doors to never-before creative possibilities is thrown open. This is a material with the ability to mimic the most realistic patterns – even down to the knots and grains seen on real wood to the striations found in stone or marble. No wonder interior decorators and homeowners alike are leaning more and more towards luxury vinyl flooring to transform their space.

    We have put together a style guide of our top 5 luxury vinyl colour ideas to set you off on your exciting flooring journey.

    Dramatic Darks 

    Think deep chocolate browns, dark greys and their variations. When it comes to flooring today, bold experimentation is all the rage. Design and décor magazines regularly feature deep shades of flooring in every possible interior. The dramatic impact of dark floors is undeniable.

    Dark vinyl floors have the ability to make a room feel cozier or lavishly opulent, depending on the kind of wall colour, furnishings and accessories you pair it with. For instance, decadent furnishings in royal blues or purples, Cabriole or Chesterfield sofas, and accessories with gold accents – set against the Pro-Tek™ Editions Classic Kingfisher Slate can make a room feel plush and rich. With a light powder blue wall and comfy English Roll Arm sofas, a dark floor like the Pro-Tek™ Editions Herringbone Sandringham Rock can feel like a warm hug.

    But keep in mind that dark floors make a room appear smaller and it works better for spaces with lofty ceilings and a wide expanse. However, for those of you with smaller rooms who prefer a more intimate feel, this detail shouldn’t deter you from dark floors.

    Calm and Soothing Neutrals

    You can never go wrong with a neutral shade of luxury vinyl flooring. Beige, off-whites, honey blondes, light tans, soft greys, and light greiges typically fall under this category. These colours can adapt to any setting and style and make a space feel light and airy. They work especially well in enhancing the natural light streaming into the room.

    Pro-Tek™’s Excel Classic Kensington Wood with its delicate brown graining and vintage vibe is perfect to create a relaxed, laid-back ambience. The Editions Classic Primrose Satin offers warm beige and brown undertones with darker knots and grains – a great choice for those who wish for a rustic, yet elegant look.

    Neutrals doesn’t necessarily equate to being boring or safe, since they have the ability to morph and fit into any décor. You can go down the Scandinavian or Boho Chic route with light wood floors, cane furniture and sandy-hued furnishings and accessories. Or evoke a seaside getaway with an off-white floor, bursts of blues and plenty of crisp white nautical accents.

    Edgy and Stately Greys

    You might find it surprising that grey is not considered a gloomy, drab shade in terms of flooring. Luxury Vinyl has revived this remarkably versatile colour and taken it to a whole new level. We are talking all kinds of greys – pebble grey, slate grey, silvery grey, smoky grey to charcoal grey. Grey is trending in the design space right now since it strikes the perfect balance between light and dark colours. With its varied range of styles and shades, grey has the ability to exude calm sophistication, an imposing grandeur or a quirky, edgy feel – depending on what you pair it with. 

    If you don’t want to play it safe with neutrals, but don’t want to go too bold with dark floors either – then grey might be that Goldilocks shade of ‘just right’ for you. Pro-Tek™’s range of Grey Luxury Vinyl floors are a great place to start.

    The Editions Essential light Grey with its silver tones and dark graining is an ideal floor for more informal, relaxed spaces, while the Editions Herringbone Buckingham Grey, as the name suggests, is evocative of regality and class. With its complex and interesting texture, Editions Tile Smoke Travertine is a perfect backdrop for a sleek, ultramodern home. If you are going for an edgy, industrial chic look with glossy metallic accents and plenty of black, our Excel Longplank Jasmine Grey would tie it together beautifully.

    Pristine Whites

    White is such an easy colour to play with – ranging from crisp white, ivory white, porcelain white to chalky white. It blends in seamlessly against any decor, making it another one of those perennially favourite floor colours. White has always been associated with stark minimalistic styles, but it can work just as well in spaces filled with vivid colour and quirky bric-a-bracs. Pro-Tek™’s Editions Classic Bishops White can complement a cozy cottage, characterized by reclaimed wood accents and dark wood furniture. You could add heightened visual interest with our Editions Herringbone Syon White or exude the feel of a Roman mansion with Editions Tiles Ivory Travertine.

    Bold Blacks

    Let’s face it. Black is a statement. It is a floor colour with so much character and depth, that if you are adventurous enough to go for it – the effect is spellbinding. It lends itself beautifully to a monochromatic look and creates a look of solid distinction. However, to make a black floor feel less foreboding, the key is to find the right balance between light and dark. For example, you could contrast a dark floor with white furniture and walls with a few dark highlights thrown in.

    Black is also the ultimate luxury, like our Editions Tiles Vesuvian Marble, so reminiscent of grand Mediterranean palaces of the past – which accentuates the feeling of lavishness. If you wish to go for black wood, our Editions Classic Kingfisher Slate truly brings out the veins and knots of natural wood in a much more dramatic way.

    Whether you desire a wood effect, stone effect or patterned vinyl floor, we have 12 stunning colours and designs to choose from. Get in touch to give your space a fabulous facelift.
