With the Rio Olympics firmly under way, all eyes are on the athletes competing for medal places. But, you don’t have to be an elite sportsperson to go for gold this autumn. It just so happens that the Olympic Games coincide with new flooring trends, so you can inject a splash of victory into your interiors. While styles last year were all about shades of grey, this autumn flooring in warmer hues is bang on trend. Here, North East-based Flooringsuperstore.com runs through key picks for autumn.
Golden Manor Oak £33.99 per m2
Luxurious caramel and coffee tones combine to create an engineered wood flooring that is built to add warmth and elegance to a home, while being designed to last a lifetime. Authentic wood knots, grain variation and a variety of plank lengths combine to create a natural finish.
Muscovado Oak £29.79 per m2
A brand new hue for autumn, this premium narrow solid wood floor would be equally at home in a modern apartment, barn conversion or rustic farmhouse. It has been expertly brushed with wire brushes to accentuate the natural graining of the wood. It is then coated with layers of high-quality lacquer to provide a subtle sheen while offering a durable finish.
Sisal Big Boucle Wicker £19.99 per m2
The Sisal Big Boucle range is woven using fibres from the Agave Sisalana Plant, into a range of highly-stylish carpets which provide a natural and durable choice for hallways, stairs and living areas. The exaggerated boucle effect adds extra texture to any room.
Timeless Golden Glow carpet £19.99 per m2
Forget the red carpet, this autumn it’s all about the gold carpet. While golden carpets may have once been seen as the preserve of the seventies, this season they’re much subtler, adding a sheen, but no garishness, to homes.
Golden Handscraped Narrow Oak £19.99 per m2
This solid wood provides a naturally-aged look from the moment it is installed. With an understated rustic charm and natural beauty, it can complement a wide variety of interiors thanks to its varied colour tones and unique grained patterns. A look which will never go out of style, it is statement flooring which makes an excellent investment.
Whether you opt for solid or engineered wood, carpet or vinyl, choosing a golden hue can provide a winning look for the home.
