Floor Factory Showroom: Woodpecker Flooring In traditional Victorian styles, hardwood flooring often takes centre stage. Rich, warm tones of oak or mahogany contribute to the timeless elegance of these interiors, creating a sense of continuity with the historical elements of the design. Woodpecker hardwood flooring excels at bringing warmth into the room.

Conversely, modern architectural styles, characterised by clean lines and minimalist aesthetics, often favour sleek and seamless flooring options. Large-format porcelain tiles, or hardwood with a light finish are popular choices, providing a contemporary and open feel to the space. In mid-century modern designs, iconic materials like terrazzo or patterned tiles can make a bold statement, echoing the design elements of that era.

Most homes are a combination of the two. Transitional styles, which blend traditional and modern elements, benefit from versatile flooring options. Engineered wood, LVT and even natural flooring can bridge the gap between classic and contemporary, offering both durability and design flexibility. Traditional styles but modern technologies bring the best of both worlds. Mediterranean inspired colours and patterns can emphasise the warmth and cosiness of a room, while being easy to care for and maintain.
