Floor design is often something that is overlooked. Whilst not as obvious as new furniture, a fresh lick of paint, or new lighting fittings, a new floor can breathe a new lease of life into any interior and it would appear there is a new alternative on the market.
In this modern age, interior design takes many forms, from rejuvenating the past to the completely new to combining exciting style. Over the years, vinyl and laminate flooring has been a popular choice due to its durability and stylish finishes. Other people have opted for more natural floors, such as solid wood or natural stone tiles to create a look that is truly authentic. But there’s a new contender on the scene…
Concreate floor may look like a misspelling, but it is the latest in flooring technologies. Acting as an alternative to conventionally poured concrete and floor coverings, Concreate flooring is perfect for a whole host of domestic and commercial uses.
The concrete floor panels used offer a strong, durable and beautiful finish that creates a modern twist for any floor. Make sure you acquire the expert knowledge of a wooden floor specialist for a full product break down. Their experience and expertise will help you discover a new way to enhance your interior design.

Designed by Studio BADINI with technical fittings from Selab this collection of Neon Letters, Numbers and Shapes can help you make your statement!
Stefano and Miria, the brother and sister team at the helm of Italian based Seletti, have brought us this malleable Neon Art. When compared with traditional neon systems, this product allows you to create your own neon art at an affordable price. The secondary benefit is that these letters are not in a fixed pattern and can be reordered as your needs change. The font style was developed from that of a typical American Typewriter and redesigned to meet the requirements of neon tube construction. The adapter for the lights and each letter is sold separately, but when combined to create your statement, they lend a decorative ambient light.

What beautiful tiles by Spanish collective Mut Design Studio + Atelier. The concrete tile concept was for Valencia- based manufacturer Entic Designs and was showcased at Salone del Satellite, 2012. The tiles are a depiction of a Japanese pond patterned by raindrops on the surface. It comes in four styles: one with only the circular droplet pattern, and the others with goldfish, lotus blossoms, and water lilies. They fit together in a variety of combinations, making each decorated floor an individual process.
The structure is 2 cm (0.8 inches) thick, and is made as an encaustic tile meant to resist wear. (via)
We would love to see these tiles on a balcony. We’re sure it would look fabulous.
