Pimp Your Floor!

Nobody likes boring, especially here at Flooring Megastore. That’s why we’ve come up with a few ideas you can try can add that extra bit of sparkle and magic to your room(s). 

Recessed Floor Lights

Recessed floor lights are a great choice for the modern style home, and will look good in almost any room you install them in, inside and out. They look their sleekest when embedded in a solid wood or tiled floor; both materials compliment the design of the light magnificently. We’ve found a few nice examples to give you an idea.

Here we see some beautiful in floor lighting running throughout a wooden hallway. The placement of the lights brings a gorgeous, warm ambient glow to the entire length of the room. The colour of the light also reflects nicely off the brown oak. If you’re looking for a luxury hard wood floor to enhance the look of your living space, be sure to check out our fantastic range of solid wood floors.

 The owner of this house has decided to place their recessed floor lights along the curvature of his gym and games room wall. You have to say, it fits the décor to perfection. Again, the lights emit a modern, stylish look that really brightens up the room and drastically enhances the space. A darker wood has been used here, which contrasts well with the white light to create a more distinctive glow.

Here, the lights have been placed elegantly around the edge of a freestanding bathtub, giving the bathroom that extra sense of relaxation and tranquillity. This could either be installed within a solid wood floor, a tiled floor, or indeed luxury vinyl (LVT).

LED Strips 

LED strips are another modern alternative to traditional lighting. These are perhaps more practical than recessed lights as the strips themselves are much easier to fit/install along a skirting board, wall or surface. You can really be creative with LED strips due to the variety of colours you can choose from, meaning you can creative a bright, ominous glow to match any décor, in any room! Here’s some ideas we thought looked pretty cool…

Here, LED strips have been placed along the foot of each surface unit. The light emits nicely out of the bottom of the unit, which adds a magical touch of ambience to the floor and indeed the whole kitchen area. The LED lights compliment the beige tone of the stone tiles nicely and the white light in particular, provides an attractive contrast with the dark wood unit. Perfect for dinner parties and social gatherings!

In this example, LED lights have been used in this spacious office reception area. This is a marvellous piece of architecture that is only emphasised by the subtle glow of the lighting that borders the eccentrically designed room. So if you thought LED strips were appropriate for just domestic use, you thought wrong!

Floor Lamps 

If you’re after a quick, easy, practical way to add a bit of sparkle to your floor, why not try a floor lamp? You can buy countless different styles of floor lamps that can match all types of décor and aesthetic, no matter how modern or classic it is. Lamps do a great job of illuminating the floor space around it, and can significantly enhance the attractive appeal of any living area or commercial environment.

This neat floor lamp not only looks great on top on this parquet floor, it also acts as a piece of furniture. Feeling inspired? Take a look at our gorgeous range of luxury parquet flooring and see if you can find yourself a bargain and bring this look to life in your own home.
