Selecting the flooring for your house is a big decision, so
we've narrowed down some of the latest products for you
The Rex "Stripes" tiles from Myaree Ceramics are
a glamorous interpretation of the scratched striped
patterns in wood. The new porcelain floor tiles are richly
decorative, pure in design, and are available in warm
sensual tones such as white and bronze. The Stripes tiles
look fantastic laid herringbone-style and the other styles
from the range include Mosca and Tokyo.
The Silver Pearl tile is a natural limestone tile from Eco
Stone. Available in small and large sizes with a honed
or polished finish, the tiles are light in colour with silver
and grey pearl veins and tones. Peter Szponarski from
Eco Stone says that limestone flooring is unusual and
unknown in Western Australia yet has been featured
all over Europe and America in luxury homes for years.
"When we say limestone everybody thinks about our
Western Australian construction limestone," says Peter
Szponarski. "Not many people know that limestone,
travertine and marble are from same 'stone family'."
Aeria Country Flooring has a honed 457 x 457 size
Marble called Mink that looks stunning either laid cross
or vein pattern. The marble is Turkish and has an unusual
colour and vein detail that is modern and sleek.
If you like the feel of carpet between your toes then
take a look at the new Impression and Herringbone range
from RC&D. The Impression design complements any
room and furniture and is available in a selection of neutral
colours. The Herringbone is a popular textured design that
can be used on many applications. Both designs are hand
tufted in stippled New Zealand wool and cotton viscose.
