The Impact of Laminate Tiles for Decorative Flooring

This is a paid promotional post

Let me introduce you to the Faus Retro Flooring laminate tiles range from International Decorative Surfaces. 

Described as ‘an artistic collection of Victorian and vintage tiles with a contemporary twist’ it’s a beautiful laminate flooring which offers great style and design for your family home.

The Benefits of Laminate Tiles for Decorative Flooring

Let me show you their Faus Flooring range and talk about how you can use it in your home. If you’ve shied away from decorative flooring in the past, let me convert you!

The tiles come in easy to lay planks and offer a highly realistic alternative to hardwood and ceramic materials.

I’ve used laminate tiles in my home myself and they’re really easy to lay and maintain. They’re perfect too, if you have allergies as an alternative to carpet. 

There’s been much more of a move towards feature flooring in recent years and with good reason. 

Minimal Home Decor

Do you love a minimal finish in your home – a look that could be described as Scandi or Nordic?

In the UK we adore this style of decor but love to give it our own twist. We do this by adding a little colour and pattern. 

Take a look at the Faus Flooring Blue Tile below:

The bathroom in this case, is stylish and simple, minimal in its colour scheme, spacious and inviting. But the addition of the decorative flooring gives it a more retro styling. A look that is reminiscent of Victorian era, mixed with the more modern design. It’s a look that works really well. 

Alternatively, you can use this style of flooring in a more industrial or retro setting. 

The kitchen below has much more of a distressed look. One that works in more period homes and apartments. 

It’s rustic with a real lived in feel, yet quite devoid of pattern. Add in the decorative flooring and you instantly add more interest. It’s a subtle look but really updates the feel and atmosphere of the room. 

If you want a more traditional look and hanker after a Victorian style tile, you can also check out The Faus Flooring Victorian tile. 

Again, in a soft, blue/grey finish, it’s easy to incorporate into your home decor and adds that subtle effect that many of us are looking for. 

It’s an easy way to add colour and pattern to a bathroom or kitchen – the more traditional rooms where we add laminate tiles – but do consider how you can bring this into your living rooms and dining spaces too. 

As I said, it’s a great alternative to carpets when you want a different look and feel in the room, and great when you have family members with allergies. 

I already have laminate tiles in my lounge and have never regretted it.
