Stripe effect carpets have proven popular on staircases for a number of years now, but why stop there? The latest designs seem to be getting bolder and more colourful allowing you to make a statement in any room you wish.

This stunning Biscayne Lime stripe carpet by Crucial Trading is a prime example of what an impact this kind of carpet can have on a room. Keep your decor and furnishings neutral and let the floor do all the talking! Add a splash of colour with scatter cushions and accessories and you will have a living space that will get everyone talking.

2. Mimic Real Wood with Karndean Designflooring.

You simply have to see it to believe it! Lay a plank of Karndean against a plank of solid oak wood, and you can hardly tell the difference. Karndean is so easy to look after, warm under foot and comes with a lifetime product warranty. No wonder it’s so popular.

You can see how realistic Karndean is in this image of Karndean Van Gogh Auckland Oak. With it’s warm oak tones, interesting knots and grains, long and wide planks, and the option to lay them either straight or diagonal across your living space, you can create a unique wood effect design in your home. No-one will know that it isn’t real wood - and we won’t tell if you don’t!

3. Stair Runners.

Years ago stair runners were the norm. But when full wall to wall carpeting became popular in the 1970’s, runners and rugs became ‘old fashioned’. Not anymore!
