Over the last five years, homeowners in the UK have increased the amount of money invested in flooring upgrades and renovations. This is, at least in part, because high quality floors offer a huge amount of value and over long periods too. Take the growing popularity of Concreate floors in rural areas like Sunningdale, Longcross, and Ascot.
These exquisite products may be non-traditional, but they are great for creating a crisp, contemporary aesthetic. While concrete has a reputation for being tougher than it is beautiful, it is remarkably versatile, and you’ll be amazed at the range of colours, textures, and designs available. In fact, just forget everything you thought you knew about this material.
Concrete floors are set to be huge in 2018 and, when you see what’s possible, you’ll understand why. Keep reading for some serious style inspiration.
One big benefit of Concreate floors is that they come in easy to fit panels. This allows for maximum flexibility when designing a bespoke look. For instance, you could opt for a seamless, classic arrangement with few surprises or lay the panels out in a unique pattern.
The tongue and groove locking system means that they can be placed, lifted, and replaced as many times as you like until you get the perfect design. From herringbone to geometric sequences; if you’ve got the flare for it, do something really special with your floor.
Spaces within Spaces
Speaking of bespoke arrangements; larger rooms tend to suit patterned floors rather well. You can actually hold big, open plan spaces together by creating contrasting designs with just the one flooring material. Just use the panels to demarcate spaces within spaces.
For example, in a big loft apartment, create a ‘room’ by marking out a border with different coloured panels. This technique is a great way to add intimacy to open plan lounges and entertaining areas. With Concreate flooring, it’s as easy as putting together a jigsaw.
Traditional poured and polished concrete can look very beautiful, but it presents some challenges. You’ll find that, when you move to connect the material up with other rooms and other flooring types, it’s hard to get a smooth transition. This is especially true with wood.
Fortunately, you can pick up high quality Concreate panels in Sunningdale, and they come in all kinds of different shades. In fact, the manufacturer has created a special range of colours which are designed to match common wood shades, so that transitions are always flawless.
Suitable for Upstairs Too
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Concreate flooring is that, for the first time, the material has been manufactured in a way which is suitable for second floor use. For a long while, concrete was completely incompatible with upper levels, because of its heavy weight.
Concreate, however, is not poured, so it doesn’t have the same heft. It can be safely installed in bedrooms, bathrooms, and attic conversions. It’s actually a great choice for bathrooms, as it is surprisingly tactile. It is rarely cold because the material actively absorbs and stores heat.
If all of that weren’t enough, know that Concreate floor panels are suitable for use on walls, stairs, kitchen backsplashes, shelves, and anywhere else that needs a contemporary style boost. The fact that they’re so lightweight means that they’re extremely versatile.
So, don’t limit your imagination. If you want to get some more style ideas or discuss design possibilities with a flooring consultant, just find a local vendor in Sunningdale. They’ll be happy to answer your questions and let you know how to turn big plans into real flooring projects.

There is an interior design innovation quietly sweeping across Europe and America. If you have never heard of Bolefloor, it is time to get a little introduction to a home feature which is just on the cusp of setting the market on fire. The term ‘Bolefloor’ refers to a new brand of live edge, contoured wood flooring.
In other words, it is curved. Rather than manufacturing floorboards in perfectly straight lines, as is conventional, the company has found a way to retain the natural shape of the wood grain. It is a world first and an entirely new type of flooring system, so style-savvy homeowners are falling in love with it.
Keep reading to find out more about curved floorboards and where you can buy Bolefloor in Englefield Green at great prices.
Just Look at Those Undulating Curves
Bolefloor is unlike any floorboard that you have seen before. As mentioned, it bends with the natural grain of the tree, so the effect is gently undulating. It might not sound like a big difference, but the aesthetic is quite striking. We have become so used to poker straight floorboards that we have forgotten nature does not build in straight lines.
She has blessed the world with beautiful arcs and bows, which Bolefloor takes full advantage of to create a very rustic and organic look. No two floors are the same, so every customer gets a brand new design. They are currently available in solid oak, ash, maple, cherry, and walnut varieties. There is also a range of grades, colours, and finishes on offer.
Giving Back One Plank at a Time
It is worth pointing out that if you invest in Bolefloor in Englefield Green, you will be giving back to the environment. The manufacturer claims the process requires fewer resources. Plus, more flooring gets produced from a smaller amount of wood.
It makes sense because the existing shape of the tree is merely being cut into pieces, rather than chopped and shaped to fit a domestic standard. The fact that more of the wood is being utilised also allows the company to provide very competitive prices, even though there is no other flooring like it in the world.
Fitting Together Like a Puzzle
Bolefloor fits together in much the same way as conventional floorboards. The tongue and groove design allows the perfectly shaped pieces to click and lock into place. Once fitted, the seams are invisible, and the aesthetic is flawless. No glue or other chemicals are required, which furthers the environmental credentials of the product.
In large rooms, it can take a little longer to fit a Bolefloor, because the pieces are not interchangeable like usual. Each one has to be placed in a precise position so that it joins smoothly with the others. The manufacturer does include a detailed map, however, and homeowners can use numbered codes to get everything in the right order.
Interestingly, the production process is a lot less freeform. It is almost entirely automated and uses sophisticated identification software to map out each floorboard. Innovative visual algorithms scan the wood for knots and saps, so that it always makes a clean cut. It is wonderful example of how technology and nature can work together, instead of in opposition.
