DESIGN: From the Ground Up

by Linda Mazur

Start your design story with your floors

As small space dwellers, the reality is that sometimes our renovation options may differ a little because we live in a condo. Although condo living can come with its own set of design challenges, there should be no reason that these restrictions should hold us back from creating a magazine-worthy look in our home. Sometimes, the biggest design inspiration for your home can lie right under your nose… or rather, your feet! Instead of searching for inspiration in fabrics and colours, why not look down and get inspired by your flooring? With the multitude of possibilities in today’s flooring, designing your space from the ground up can be simpler than you may believe.

Whether you are renovating a charming vintage walk-up or a modern new build, it’s no secret that condo restrictions can sometimes be the biggest challenge when choosing flooring that is both beautiful and practical. Recently though, we have seen a surge in beautiful floorings like luxury vinyl, vinyl composite core, and laminate flooring that will not only meet the requirements of your condo but will spark your design creativity and serve as a great kick off to the remainder of your project.

Laminate flooring is a hard surface flooring that has been around for quite a while. It is manufactured using material like medium or high-density fiberboard, which forms the core. Luxury vinyl is a soft surface flooring product that is flexible, and comes in a variety of installation options, providing a great look as well as comfort. Luxury vinyl has a multitude of options that have the look of wood, stone, or other natural materials. Vinyl composite core is a newcomer to the manufactured flooring world. This flooring combines the best features of laminate and luxury vinyl. The boards are rigid planks that click together like laminate but are constructed from a water-resistant vinyl composite material that gives them the flexibility of vinyl flooring that can be installed anywhere.

Flooring can be inspirational, it has the ability to set the tone for your entire design. Envision a beautifully distressed floor in a weathered shade of brown with accents of ashen greys, reminiscent of aged vintage flooring found in an old Parisian apartment. Add in some wonderful custom millwork, an elegant plaster ceiling with moulding detail, and a charming old chandelier. Play off this vintage look by adding a simple tailored sofa, Scandi-inspired chairs, and perhaps a rustic coffee table and finish it with colourful accessories. Top this all off with beautiful soft billowy linen sheer drapes, and you’ve creating for yourself an elevated yet relaxed living space, all inspired by your flooring!

However, flooring can tell more than just one story. This same flooring could also inspire a typical urban kitchen to have a more relaxed, country-chic feel. Blend in some warm mixed metals, a fusion of soft grey and wood toned cabinetry, a vintage looking quartz countertop, and you are well on your way to creating for yourself a fantastic kitchen space to be enjoyed with family and friends.

This year’s design trends are all about bold colours, beautiful textures and patterns, so it can feel natural to look to paint, fabric, or cabinetry when searching for direction on your next renovation. Keep in mind that inspiration can be found in many different forms. When embarking on your next project, try looking down to see what’s underfoot… you may be pleasantly surprised with what you find!

Dek: Using scrap flooring to protect your new floors

rc_feb_5_2018_1

Graham Torrie of Align Developments Ltd. in Cochrane, Alta., shares this floor protection tip

We came up with a simple reusable solution to protect floors on projects where we need to travel over finished surfaces. We approached our local flooring supplier and requested to purchase any leftover premium linoleum flooring. We had it cut into 36″-wide strips that are 12′ long. They can easily be trimmed to length to fit any configuration of walkway. Plus, they are a one-time investment that can last for years.

The Beauty of Wood

There is nothing like the welcoming look of hardwood.

CorkWood Elite comes in planks almost four-inches long and a diverse range of five colours.

The Durability of Laminate

CorkWood is engineered with a durable HDF smart core for dent resistance and a 3mm-thick (Designer) or 2.5mm-thick (Elite) top layer of compressed cork.

Dekton® by Cosentino

Introducing Two New Marble-Inspired Colours, Opera and Natura 

TORONTO, ON. (November 1, 2017) – Cosentino, the global leader in the production and distribution of surfaces for the world of architecture and design, introduces two new striking colours for its ultra-compact surface brand, Dekton®.

The new additions join Dekton®’s existing Natural and XGloss Natural collections, offering a range of unique designs boasting excellent technical properties expected of the revolutionary ultra-compact surface brand. Created from a sophisticated blend of inorganic materials using an innovative ultra-compaction process, Dekton® has a high resistance to UV rays, scratches, stains and thermal shock. These benefits ensure its surfaces are durable and very easy to maintain, offering a wealth of possibilities for both internal and external projects, including flooring, façades, wall cladding and countertops.

OPERA:

Part of the Dekton Natural Collection, Opera is inspired by the current desire for marble interiors, taking inspiration from elegant Italian Carrara marble and boasting the extraordinary new soft touch finish from Dekton®, Velvet Texture. Simple, light grey veining adds depth and interest to the creamy white surface for a classic understated finish.

NATURA:

Part of the XGloss Naturals Collection, Natura replicates the style of marble with soft grey veining accentuating the classic white surface, offering a lustrous polished finish. With all the benefits of Dekton®’s technical characteristics, the colour’s reflective nature is due to the nano-technological treatment and mechanical polishing process it undergoes, resulting in a crystal-like shine.

Combined with the strength and stain resistance of Dekton®, the product provides exceptional performance paired with unique characteristics. This includes water repellent properties, ensuring an impressive resistance to stains. The nano-coating process and mechanical polishing also enhances Dekton®’s colour.

About Dekton® by Cosentino

All of these characteristics unique to Dekton® are present thanks to the technology used in its production, which has been developed exclusively by the Cosentino Group’s R&D department. Dekton® is manufactured with Technology of Sinterized Particles (TSP), an innovative ultra-compaction process. This contributes greatly to the fact that Dekton® is a completely revolutionary product; it is durable, very easy to maintain, and has potential for both indoor and outdoor uses including flooring, façades, wall cladding and countertops.

The prestigious architect and designer Daniel Libeskind used Dekton in the creation of “Beyond The Wall”, his only work in the Iberian Peninsula.

Flooring: It's a Hard Choice

Flooring: It’s a Hard Choice

Flooring: It’s a Hard Choice

by Samantha Sannella

Wood

Wood floors can be extremely durable and offer an unparalleled natural beauty. Wood floors must be chosen carefully whether solid or engineered. There are many things that should be considered: hardness, finish, pattern and maintenance. The National Wood Floor Association (NWFA) sets standards for flooring and produces guidelines that manufacturers must meet to be certified. You can also refer to the Canadian National Floor Covering Association for guidelines when sourcing flooring.

The hardness of a wood is rated on an industry-wide standard known as the Janka test. It measures the force required to embed a .444-inch steel ball into the wood by half its diameter. This test is one of the best measures of the ability of a wood species to withstand denting and wear. It is also a good indicator of how hard wood is to saw, mill and nail.

For example, Brazilian cherry, mahogany and pecan are at the top of the scale, while maple, ash and oak are in the middle. Soft woods include southern pine and Douglas fir. The NWFA also sets forth acceptable moisture content, board lengths, edge dimensions and thickness for both finished and unfinished hardwood. There are installation guidelines along with sanding and finishing.

One of the most important things to consider when choosing hardwood floors is the extent to which is will be used throughout the home. Due to its structural stability, engineered flooring is recommended for the basement. Many times, owners desire heated floors so recommending engineered flooring throughout the home can be a practical solution. Engineered flooring offers more stability during moisture shifts and typical problems seen in hardwood floors can be avoided when using a good quality engineered flooring.

Not all flooring is created equal. There are many foreign sourced floors on the market that don’t meet strict North American quality guidelines. These product choices can be risky. Also, be aware that some product packaging can be misleading and make buyers believe that the products are Canadian, but they are not. Sticking with reputable products that provide good customer service is highly recommended when sourcing flooring.

Porcelain

One of the biggest trends on the market today is large-scale floor and wall tile. Some of these tiles are full-scale slab size 48-inch by 98-inch or larger. While the aesthetic of large tiles can be a bold choice, they sometimes also bring a large installation price. Ultrathin porcelain tiles can require special backings before installation to strengthen them, which can greatly increase the installation price. Tiles that are $12 per square foot can easily be $30 per square foot or more to install.

Tile patterns can be a unique way to add interest to floors. Many of the newer patterns — such as hexagons, herringbones and chevrons — can make beautiful entries, kitchens, laundry rooms and bathrooms. One of the biggest benefits to porcelain floors is durability and ease of maintenance. Through-body porcelains also offer aesthetic protection in case of deep scratches or chips. Many of the newer choices also mimic natural stone and can be almost identical at a fraction of the cost.

To be certain of the quality of porcelain products, consider doing your homework at the Tile Council of North America. Porcelain products are moisture tested to ensure that they meet the strict standards set forth for non-absorption. Certified porcelain products can be used outside and are considered frost proof. Certified products carry the Porcelain Tile Certification Association label.

Stone

While natural stone carries a lifetime of beauty, careful thought must be given to using natural stone, a non-renewable resource, in appropriate situations. Building interiors that have long life spans, such as commercial lobby spaces, are the perfect choice natural stone. Homes that are designed to be timeless, rather than trendy, are also a good choice for natural stone products.

Visiting showrooms to view natural stone products can be like visiting a candy store. Marble, granite, onyx, limestone, quartzite and slate (among others) are some of the most beautiful finishes our earth offers.

Stone requires special maintenance, so reviewing this with the client before specifying it is necessary. While clients may like the idea of natural stone, many won’t like the idea of the special maintenance it requires.

There are numerous associations that regulate standards and make recommendations for installation. The Natural Stone Council is a good resource for designers to learn about natural stone characteristics.

One of the most interesting things about designing with stone is the ability to create your own patterns through water-jet cutting. It can be as simple as providing a vector file to a supplier and specifying sizes, repeats and dimensions. Cutting in metal or glass inlays can also offer something unique. While this can be costly, creating your own patterns or inlays can offer clients original ideas and solutions for their spaces.

4 Main Options when Picking Flooring for Your Home

Latest News


4 Main Options when Picking Flooring for Your Home

New floors can considerably change the look, feel and value of your house, especially if you are dealing with old flooring or need to replace the carpet. The good news is that there are many sweeping trends you can pick from. This article looks at the four main options you will have when picking the right flooring for your home renovation project.

Hardwood

The most prestigious material is definitely the hardwood. Hardwood is usually made from solid lumber that is a natural insulator. It is mostly preferred because it can match with just any interior décor, it’s easy to clean and adds significant structural strength. Oak, maple, and cherry floors are the most popular materials in Canada due to their hardness, thus durability. Hardwood floor will attract and retain less dirt hence reducing molds and allergens from your home.

The problem with the hardwood floor is that it is not moisture resistant. You cannot afford to leave spills for too long because the will be absorbed by the wood. Individual boards may also expand or contract when exposed to varying humidity levels indoors. For the best performance, you will need to keep the indoor humidity at between 45% and 55% throughout the year.

Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood is a much better alternative to a regular hardwood, although it is more expensive. These floors are made using the uppermost layer of dried hardwood and the lower layers are composed of solid wood, plywood or HDF. The pieces are pressure bonded.

The good thing about this option is that it is moisture resistant and more durable. You don’t need to keep a close eye on temperature and humidity levels when using this flooring. You also enjoy more flexibility during installation since there are many installation methods. The downside is engineered hardwood is costly.

Cork Flooring

Cork flooring has been very popular in Canada in 60’s and 70’ and up until 2000s was mostly used in commercial buildings. In the past few years Toronto homeowners have begun favoring cork flooring due to its unique retro-look and eco-friendly nature. Home gym, kitchen and kid’s room would benefit from cork floor’s shock-absorbent structure.

This flooring is made from cork oak tree and the tree itself doesn’t need to be cut to harvest the material. It is highly resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria which makes it a good option for people with allergies.

The downside is that cork scratches easily and it is not moisture-friendly. Most of professional contractors do not suggest using cork flooring in bathrooms, laundry area or basements.

Laminate Flooring

The forth option is laminate flooring. This one is gaining popularity mostly because it has longer life span and offers remarkable aesthetic effects; as well as several cost saving benefits. It is easy to install, clean and maintain.

One of the greatest laminate benefits is its versatility. Prints on laminate can simulate any desired pattern and color: from warm wood-like palette to modern grey stone or marble. And it will cost you much cheaper than actual marble floors.

Laminate floors are also a wise option if you are planning on installing in-floor heating. Nowadays homeowners in Toronto are including such floor-heating systems in their house renovation projects by default. First, it adds warmth and a comfort to any room. Second, it increases the house value overall making heated floors a rational investment.

Ceramic Flooring

Ceramic tiles are the best alternative to any other flooring if you need it to be waterproof or easy washable which makes them ideal option for bathrooms, kitchens or outdoor patios.

Ceramic floor is extremely durable and not so easy to crack when installed. Properly installed tiles can serve you for 20 years and even longer when properly taken care of. And even if one tile gets cracked it is pretty simple to remove it and replace with a new one.

In Toronto ceramic flooring would cost you between $1.50 to $6 per square foot depending on quality, tile size and pattern. This makes it moderately expensive option, but will long-term value to a property price.

Marble Flooring

Marble flooring is one of the most expensive, but durable and versatile type of floor. Most homeowners in Canada pay between 10$ to 20$ per square foot for professionally installed marble flooring.

Its luxury look and elegant texture can turn your house into a castle. Marble tiles come is various colors and sizes, easy to install and will last forever.

Another benefit of this floor compared to other soft flooring options is the fact that it’s easy to clean and hypoallergenic. It is also a perfect match for any floor-heating system, as a natural material marble stays warm longer after the heating system is turned off.

Design: Flooring Inspiration: Design Underfoot

by Linda Mazur

The season is once again upon us as many of us are feverishly exploring design magazines for inspiration and direction for our next renovation.

As small-space dwellers we have resolved that our renovation options sometimes differ a little because we live in a condo. however not wanting to compromise, we still aim to create a magazine- worthy look in our home. When designing a space many of us look for inspiration in fabrics and colours, why not look down and get inspired by your flooring! It may be a bit unconventional to imagine that flooring could in fact be the root of the design for your room, but with today’s flooring options it’s definitely a possibility.

Whether you reside in a modern new build or a charming vintage walk-up, I think we can agree that when it comes time to renovate, inspiring flooring options that meet condo restrictions can sometimes be sparse. Recently though, we have been seeing a surge in beautiful new luxury vinyl, vinyl composite core and laminate flooring options that are definitely on trend and set to inspire our design creativity.

Laminates have been around for quite awhile and are a hard surface flooring manufactured using material like medium or high density fibreboard which forms the core. Luxury vinyl is a soft surface flooring product that is flexible. It comes in a variety of installation options providing a great look and comfort too. One of my go-to suppliers of high-end luxury vinyl, Evoke, provides many fantastic options that have the look of wood, stone or other natural material. Vinyl composite core is a newcomer to the manufactured flooring world. This flooring combines the best features of laminate and luxury vinyl. The floor boards are rigid planks that click together like laminate, but are constructed from a water-resistant vinyl composite material that gives them the flexibility of vinyl flooring that can be installed anywhere.

So, the question remains, how can flooring be inspirational? Envision a great distressed floor in a weathered shade of brown with accents of ashen greys, reminiscent of aged vintage flooring found in an old Parisian apartment. Add some wonderful custom millwork, beautiful plaster moulding ceiling detail and a charming old chandelier. Play off this vintage look by adding a simple tailored sofa, Scandinavian inspired chairs, perhaps a rustic coffee table and some great pops of colour with accessories, topping it off with beautiful soft billowy linen sheer drapes; creating for yourself an elevated yet relaxed living space all inspired by our distressed looking flooring.

But let’s not stop there, this same flooring has many lives and looks to offer us. This same flooring can inspire a typical urban kitchen to have a more relaxed, country-chic feel. When blended with warm mixed metals, a mix of soft grey and wood toned cabinetry and a vintage looking quartz countertop you are on the way to creating for yourself a great kitchen space to enjoy with family and friends.

Inspiration can be found in many different ways. This year is all about colour, texture and pattern, all key elements of good design. Instead of starting your next renovation with a paint colour, fabric or cabinetry, try something a bit different and look to see what’s underfoot…you may be surprised with what you find!
