Flooring Inspired by Summer Trips
Jul 05, 2021
You don’t have to go far or travel long to get the refreshing effects of a quick vacation full of fun. So pack your bags, jump in the car, and choose a destination to get some sun and surfing in while the weather is on your side. Who knows, you might just find you’re inspired by the sights, smells, and colours of a road trip riddled by spontaneity!
And, what better way to increase your travel time than by installing brand new floors that make for low-commitment cleaning and simple living. This summer, we’ve chosen four floors as well as five fun hues all inspired by summer trips, from their durable to their beautiful muted tones.
Summer Colour Palettes
Spruce up your home with a fresh coat of paint. Mint green, beige and cool gray tones call up images of freshly turned Earth in the garden, green shoots and summer adventures with their light hues. The deeper brown colour perfectly reflects nature and these tones are sure to bring a sense of tranquility to any room either together or as standalone accent walls.
Carpet for Quick Getaway
Innovia’s Fiance carpet is the perfect flooring solution for living room and family rooms alike, with its natural crush and stain resistance. You can walk all over it and spill stuff on it –from mustard to pet accidents –all without having to worry about the hassle of last-minute clean-ups, so you can still make that quick weekend getaway. Plus, this eye-catching design is stunning in the colour Ice Crystal, which lends a contemporary-sculptured gray look with its textured patterning. This carpet can add a refreshing breath of style to any décor while keeping its original comfort with soft Triexta fibers.
Hardwood to Handle Your Beach Days
Treat yourself this summer with a hardwood floor that can withstand all your favorite summer activities, from wet suits to muddy hiking shoes. Aquadura H2O’s Winslow Hill Walnut allows you to explore the elegant richness of natural walnut hardwood flooring alongside the advantages of modern technology. This waterproof, kid-proof, and pet-proof flooring features genuine walnut hardwood veneer, with its stunning colouration and varied grain patterning. But, not to fear, as a special sealant and core protect this hardwood, so you can use it throughout your home without worrying about leaks, spills, or pet accidents ruining it. Imagine the look of elevated style you can create with these wide planks of walnut hardwood, especially in the Rio hue. This warm, chocolate brown colour draws warmth from nature, reminiscent of beautiful forest trails and campfire nights.
