DIY Inspiration Ideas From Amber
Now is the time for home renovators to completely change the look of their home with a trendy, DIY floor renovation!
Providing a wide range of flooring products, from timber-inspired porcelain tiles to elegant natural stone pavers, Amber provides ideas and expert advice for anyone looking to accomplish a unique floor design.
Mike Barden, Amber’s paving and outdoor expert, explained that home renovators have endless opportunities to distinguish their home with creative floor designs.
“People often think the way to lay tiles and pavers is standardised and limited.
“It is now easy to play around with floor design because of the wide variety of tiles and pavers in different sizes and colours now available on the market,” Mike said.
“We are seeing a demand for renovators incorporating a Roman Pattern design - where three different-sized tiles or pavers are used - and a French Pattern design - combining four different-sized tiles and pavers in a random style.”
The main benefits of experimenting with floor design are that it alters the illusion of space and creates a talking point within a room. A chic floor design immediately grabs people’s attention within a space, automatically transforming an ordinary room into a fantastic room!
“Floor designs also concentrate any given area. This allows home renovators to alter the scale and perceived size of a room,” Mike explained. “Alternatively, you don’t have to apply stylish designs just in the house! Look at using a pattern around the pool, on outdoor walkways and courtyards or even as a unique feature wall in the backyard.”
The installation process of patterned tiles and pavers is simple with home owners able to complete the project within a weekend. Before starting the project, Mike suggested seeking advice from experienced Amber staff and laying out a small portion of the floor design within the given room.
“Play around with the design and product selection in the actual setting before starting the project. If you want to create an aged appearance, look at using classic pavers such as Amber’s Bradstone or St Tropez ranges. On the other hand, if you want to create an elegant entertaining area, play around with Amber’s Sandstone or Travertine series – perfect for both the indoors and outdoors.”
Mike said there has been a definite trend for houses in regional areas to incorporate unique floor designs within their homes. “Home renovators within these areas are seeking a rustic feel and a floor design definitely achieves this by adding sophistication to any area.”
