Texture is proving to be a top trend for new Spring looks…

The DIY season is well and truly upon us and when considering your new flooring think about adding texture and depth for a new look this Spring.

Neutrals and greys are still very much the shades of choice for carpets as they work well throughout the home but more recently texture is becoming more important and people are experimenting with deeper carpet piles which are more iridescent and luxurious.

Real Wood flooring is the ultimate texture flooring and dream choice for many but can be viewed with practical disadvantages.  With the benefit of new technology engineered wood flooring is proving a practical and popular choice for adding real character and wow factor into any home.


Texture trends continue with exciting new options such as leather, copper and concrete in vinyl flooring,  to create quite personal and bespoke designs.  If you really want to embrace the trend this year, try mixing textures to give your home an added edge.

As an Amtico design centre we can help guide you through the motifs, laying patterns and borders available in a wide range of finishes to create a truly bespoke and personal floor.

Amtico are big on the metallic trend and to keep this look fresh in 2014, use varying tones of copper and gold- introducing rose gold accessories are a instant way to modernise your home.

Offset covetable coppers with urban concrete or exposed stone to create the perfect contrast in your interior spaces. Try it for yourself using tiles like Worn Concrete with Metal Fuse and Metal Coin from Amtico’s Signature Collection.

With Amtico Signature’s unique Design Options, you can control how much, or how little you want to incorporate this trend. The subtle use of Fragment Meteor is enough to give this bathroom a 2014 update without being too overpowering, and the Key Stone laying pattern adds a touch of personality.

Amtico has a diverse range of flooring options, allowing you to experiment with different stones, woods and abstract tiles to create a floor that’s perfect for you. Mixing metallic tiles that shimmer and shine, with neutral stones may seem like a unlikely partnership, but the tiles work together to compliment the various colours and tones. Concrete and Bronze, seen below, are from Amtico’s Spacia Collection and work in harmony with each other to create an understated take on the trend.
