Autumn Flooring Tones
Soon the clocks go back and we will know for sure Autumn has arrived. The change of season influences many things, from what we wear to what we eat and even what flooring we choose. Whether in a new extension, a room renovation or there’s simply the need for a new carpet or flooring in the home, Autumn sees us lean towards warmer things – richer, darker tones and softer, more luxurious materials.

We’ve added a couple of interesting posts to our blog recently, full of information for this time of year. ‘A doormat, your Autumn flooring essential’ is ideal if you’re looking for solutions to protect your floor, and more recently, ‘Is parquet the number one flooring style?’ gives an overview of this sought-after flooring that perfectly depicts historical charm and is always available in a choice of earthy oak tones, ideal for Autumn.
If you’re looking for warmth and cosiness in a room for Autumn and beyond, read on for inspiration across many of our product ranges from the leading flooring manufacturers.
