Inner City Living

Featured Image
With the fast-paced buzz of the inner city, it’s important to have a calm space to retreat to - a soothing interior palette with a smooth, tactile base to anchor it. The perfect place to start is with your flooring. Do you want the ease of timber? The comfort of carpet? Perhaps a mix from room to room.

The wide planks of Abode Coastal Byron Bay Spotted Gum and Abode Elevate Spotted Gum floorboards are contemporary but timeless and will suit a range of interior looks from pretty and feminine to a pared-back gallery style. Layer a rug or runner over the top to further tie in your scheme.

If you’re after something cushier underfoot, consider a beautiful loop-pile carpet such as the Haven Denham Coast Indee or Haven Hartland Bay Milford. The looped construction imparts a clean aesthetic, ideally suited to modern, inner-city spaces, and with the texture it adds earthiness and visual interest.
Inner-city homes often make the most of open-plan living, and an emerging trend is to combine two floorings in the one space to demarcate zones. For example, a timber or laminate floorboard in the kitchen, teamed with a plush carpet in the living area. To ensure you choose complementary flooring, consider the colour palette.

Contrasting hues, such as a blonde timber and grey carpet, will look beautiful together. As will lighter and darker shades of the same colour, for example a pale greyed oak floorboard with a rich grey-brown carpet.
A final note to maximise the design of your space, when laying floorboards or carpet with a linear pattern, think about the way in which they will run. Lengthways will elongate a room drawing the eye through it, widthways will create more of a design statement. Either way, a new floor is the ultimate way to give your inner-city home a contemporary update.
