Your floor can be a simple or as intricate as you'd like, and by following the steps below we believe you create the perfect floor for whatever your needs. Follow the steps below to be on your way to creating a floor that’s just as unique and individual as you are.

1. Choose a Main Colour and Size

Choose from a pallete of natural beiges and browns to warmer blues and greens. With tile effects including marble, slate, terracotta, ceramic plus our iconic range of mosaics and pebbles.

Create a variety of looks by experimenting with different plank layouts for a classic or contemporary scheme. We have numerous styles and sizes to choose from with our authentic large planks in Art Select and Van Gogh collections to slim and sophisticated looks in Da Vinci.
