Slushy snow. Frigid temps. Howling winds. These are the dog days of winter that can chill the bones of even the most hearty snow lover. Want to beat the winter blues with stylish aplomb? Transform what’s beneath your feet into a fashion focal point that turns the view from outside to the beauty found within. Here’s how three Mannington fans did that with flooring distinguished by color, shape and pattern.
Open the door to this Virginia home and you’ll find Adura® Max Dockside which delivers the beautiful look of wood without the worry. A rustic wood look in a rich warm color palette, Dockside is crafted with Mannington’s exclusive HydroLoc™ 100% waterproof core and ScratchResist™ technology for a surface so tough it wears away the ridges on a quarter. That makes it an especially good pick for entry areas like this where everything gets tracked in from the great outdoors.
“I love my Dockside flooring,” says Nassika, the homeowner. “The variation of the planks is the perfect rustic touch I wanted. It looks amazingly like real wood, too.”
Uplifting moments are often created by drawing on the comfort and stability of tradition. With hardwood flooring that means classic-shaped planks crafted with authenticity. For this South Carolina bonus room, the designer chose Arrow Rock Hickory—a random length, refined rustic floor that’s embossed, hand scraped and finished in ways that reveal the natural beauty of the wood.
“This space was designed with the intention of balance,” says Colleen Roach of Design Bee. “The Arrow Rock Hickory wood floor presents an inviting warmth and the dash of color in art work & accessories provides an uplifting surprise. The space is an overall positive destination.”
To pump up the volume in her small powder room, this Delaware homeowner went big and bold when it came to flooring. This is Deco, an authentic reproduction of 12” encaustic tiles found throughout Europe for centuries. Carefully crafted into resilient sheet flooring which is both soft underfoot and incredibly durable, Deco features a dramatic large format pattern based on the symmetry of intertwined florals.
“We love our Mannington flooring,” says Jennifer. “The bold pattern is perfect for our small powder room because it makes a statement. Everyone that comes to our house asks about our flooring.”
