Home Living : August 16th 2011
2 HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, August 16, 2011 HOMELIVING Be floored by good design Update a tired floor with new designs from Formica Flooring. For homeowners looking to revamp and refresh, one of the best ways to breathe new life into your home is by looking under your feet and updating your floors. Floors are no longer merely a functional surface. Flooring is now an intrinsic design and aesthetic element in the home. With Australians looking for quick and affordable ways to spruce up their home, the range of new designs from Formica Flooring is a great place to start. Trends in laminate flooring Tonal greys have taken the interior and fashion design worlds by storm, and the updated Formica Laminate Flooring range embraces this trend with its latest designs. New to the range, Bascila and Eylsee offer dark and light grey tones for unified, fashionable floors. For those looking for a soft, worn and weathered look, LucI can turn any room into a private beach oasis. High gloss finishes have experienced increasing popularity throughout the home and now homeowners can bring the trend to their floor with the brand new Formica Supergloss Flooring. Taking the traditional timber look to the next level, spotted gum, dark maple and brushbox add luxury and sophistication to any interior with a stunning polished look. Stuart Hosking from Formica said the updated Formica Flooring range allowed homeowners to look beyond their floor's function and embrace its design potential. ''Nothing in the home is subject to wear and tear more than floors, so it's no surprise that homeowners have traditionally paid more attention to their floor's practicality than its looks,'' Mr Hosking said. ''Until recently, laminate flooring colours and designs have stayed mostly with the traditional timber look, varying little from the way nature intended. But, with the impact fashionable influencers have had on flooring and improvements in technology, we can now offer consumers a wide spectrum of colours, designs and finish options. Now, when it comes to using Formica Flooring in the home, you're really only limited by your imagination.''
