Tips & Tricks

Blending Vinyl Flooring with Other Materials  

Embracing different materials when designing your space can inject dynamism, depth, and character. 

Vinyl flooring has become increasingly popular in recent years for its versatility, durability, and affordability. 

What’s even better is that you can mix and match vinyl with other materials to create a harmonious blend and take your interior to the next level. 

Consider the Mood You Want to Create 

Before you start blending materials, it’s essential to decide the mood and overall feel that you want your space to have. 

Whether you’re after a cozy, rustic, modern, or minimalist look, different materials can help you achieve it. For example, you can combine Distinctive flooring with wood for a warm and cozy atmosphere or with concrete for a sleek and modern touch.

Complement the Colours and Textures 

When combining materials, ensure that they work well together in terms of colour and texture. 

A general rule is that you should stick to similar or complementary colour schemes to create a cohesive look. For instance, a vinyl floor in a warm, chocolate brown or honey shade can blend well with a natural or stained wood ceiling. Or you can opt for a light-coloured vinyl floor and pair it with a neutral-coloured rug for a more minimalist look.

Mixing Materials for Different Areas in the House 

Different areas in the house have different purposes and characteristics that require different materials. For example, a vinyl floor with a wood finish can work well in the kitchen, where there’s a lot of traffic and spills, while a carpeted bedroom may offer more comfort and coziness. A stone or concrete floor in the living area can add texture and character to the space or complement a wooden ceiling.

Create Visual Interest with Patterns and Accents 

Blending materials doesn’t have to be all about matching and coordinating. You can also use patterns and accents to add visual interest and personality. 

For instance, you can opt for a vinyl floor with a wood grain pattern and pair it with a textured stone wall. Or, you can add accent tiles to your vinyl flooring that match colours and textures of your furniture and decor.

Layering Materials for Added Depth and Interest 

Finally, don’t be afraid to layer materials for added depth and interest. You can add a rug over your Distinctive flooring to create a cozy and comfortable space or install a wooden wall panel to create a focal point. 

Whatever the case, layering materials can break up the monotony and add a sense of personality and charm to your space.

By following these guidelines, you can create a harmonious blend that is as breathtaking as it is functional.
