What's new in flooring and interior design is colours, textures, and a definite move away from rigidity in design elements. A combination of new technology and a new generation of designers are quietly revolutionising flooring concepts. Custom design is becoming much more common, thanks to new technology for visualisation which is allowing designers and clients to experiment with interiors and develop new motifs and holistic visions.
Colour was for years a problem for everybody in interior design when it came to flooring. The choices were limited to comparatively simple, basic dyes and technology. This technology was neither flexible nor easily customisable, and a fairly unadventurous design regime opted for neutral colours. "As dull as possible" may not have been the intention, but it was the result.
The new technology and manufacturing techniques have allowed for improved colourisation and design. Colour combinations and advanced motifs are now digitised, allowing a much wider range of options, and letting designers off the leash. It's now possible to work with very strong colours, and nuanced effects which permit top quality design innovation.
This has been a huge advance across the interior design industry, particularly in the commercial interior design market, where extremely diverse demands are the norm. Commercial interiors, especially the upmarket sector, have been opting for custom colourisation in a big way. One of the most demanding of all parts of this market, restaurant interior design, has splashed out on colouring its floorspace to match high quality designs.
With the new colour revolution has come a quantum leap in texture options. This is a big improvement, brought about by new manufacturing concepts and technology. Let's face it, there is only so much you can do with old style carpets, and interior design trends have been lumbered with those limitations. The old carpets really aren't the best choice for commercial interiors, because of the hard wear these spaces take.
In their place has come a new class of carpet flooring which is truly durable. These are the top quality, super/ strong "airport" style modular carpet tiles which have tremendous strength and are seamless, with none of the weaknesses of traditional carpet. That's been another major addition to the arsenal of interior designers around the world, who can now reassure their clients that the carpets are easy to install, easy to repair and maintain, and safe for budgets.
Advanced design concepts
Custom design has overcome all the former obstacles of commercial interior design. The advanced new design concepts are able to use any motif. They're also much better products in terms of their functions, CAD/ designed materials with excellent eco/ friendly and industrial credentials. Commercial interiors, particularly the long/ suffering retail sector, can now enhance their presence and provide a much more attractive environment for their clients and their staff.
