The 3 Best Natural Textures to Incorporate into Your Home

Incorporating the colors of nature, such as browns, as well as natural materials, like wood, can help us fulfill our biophilia, a growing interior design movement that aims to merge nature with interior design. These designs take a human-centered approach to design, considering our physical, mental and emotional needs as well as our safety, welfare and desire for contemporary style.  With these broader considerations of health and wellbeing in mind, people are beginning to lean into more natural materials, such as rattan, wicker, wool and other coarse grain textiles, to help lessen toxicity in interiors. We want natural looks that bring the benefits of the outside in.1. Brown Interior Designs Mimicking naturally harnessed browns through organic textures and colors can help you achieve a natural feel in your home. Brown tones create the feeling of the forest through dark woods or the design of the desert through the colors of raw clay and rock. Brown tones are alive, reflecting the complexity of the world around us and bringing warmth, comfort and style into our spaces. COREtec’s Blended Umber luxury vinyl planks give you all the look and feel of the wood with the innovation and quality of vinyl. Our patented construction features an innovative extruded core made from recycled wood and bamboo dust, limestone and virgin PVC. It is also 100% waterproof, allowing it to be installed anywhere and can be floated over most existing hard floor surfaces or substrates. Our entire COREtec Plus HD collection is also GREENGUARD GOLD Certified for Indoor Air Quality, letting you breathe easy and feel confident about the health of your home. Photo: Wood interior designs, living room, luxury vinyl plank flooring.2. Wooden Wall Designs Woods used to be limited to just your floors, but COREtec’s innovative technology gives you the possibility of wood in every application of your home. Our waterproof designs allow you to incorporate wood looks into your kitchens, bathrooms and basements without fear of warping or swelling. COREtec’s Pro Plus collection is just one of COREtec’s collections that makes an excellent addition to any wall and to any home wanting to incorporate the look and feel of nature. This collection can give you lots of wood wall ideas and inspiration to bring the outdoors into your space.  The variety of shades of brown in Divergence Oak can bring that rustic feel of wood to your walls while giving you the confidence that vinyl provides. These and other wall paneling ideas can add extra life and style to your space by accenting walls or complimenting existing flooring.   Photo: Wooden wall design, wood wall ideas, wall paneling ideas, luxury vinyl plank flooring.3. Wood Interior Designs With these various uses for wood within the home, you can achieve a trending Nordic look with clean plank lines on your floors and walls. Celebrate exposure with unfinished, natural looks that complement the architecture of your home. Staining wood rather than painting it can allow the wood to speak for itself and heighten its impact in your space.   Incorporating multiple species of wood looks into one space can also create a contrasting design that highlights all the various natural textures. For example, pairing Biscayne Oak with Flagstaff Oak or Hobbs Oak with Galveston Oak in one space could help to bring out the strong qualities in each tone. Bringing the refreshing elements of nature into your home can do so much more than just add style to your home. Whether you prefer wood on your floors or walls, these natural tones and textures can help to merge the great outdoors into your interior design and provide you with mental, emotional and physical health benefits.

We’re Just Warming Up: The 3 Best Tones to Warm Up Your Home

Choosing the perfect products for your space can be a challenge. You want to showcase your style while also creating a functional space for your lifestyle. You want features that add warmth and texture to your home and want timeless looks that can adapt as your preferences and needs shift.  Travertine, faux concrete and textured accent walls are three of the best ways to accomplish all these goals in your space, and COREtec has a variety of style options for every budget to combine style and function in your home.1.    Travertine Flooring Travertine is an especially attractive form of limestone. It is a very durable stone that’s easier to care for than some types of natural stone. Its fibrous, marble-like texture and attractive earth-tone colors make it one of the most popular stones used in building materials. COREtec’s Ankara Travertine tile gives you all the style of travertine limestone with the innovative, patented core structure of COREtec Plus Tile. Ankara Travertine is 100% waterproof and can liven up any space in your home, from kitchens to living rooms and even showers. No matter your budget, its warm sand coloring can bring the relaxing feel of the beach or the dry style of the desert to any room in your home. 2.    Faux Concrete Floors For those who want simplicity in their modern style, faux concrete is the perfect way to add a simple pop of texture to your space while keeping it fresh and stylish. You can fulfill your minimalist style dreams without sacrificing functionality. COREtec’s Weathered Concrete tile gives you the chic, industrial look of a New York loft with the warmth and durability of COREtec’s patented tile. The attached cork underlayment dampens sound, giving you all the style with none of the added noise.  Like Ankara Travertine, Weathered Concrete is also 100% waterproof and can be installed anywhere in your home. There are no limits to where your style can go with COREtec Plus Tile.   Photo: Faux concrete floors, warm grey, vinyl plank flooring.3.    COREtec as “Textured Wallpaper” Another way to warm up your space is through textured wallpaper. This little pop of life on your walls can tone down the rigidity of some spaces, like kitchens and bathrooms, and make them more livable and inviting.  Adding wallpaper can be a simple and easy way to brighten up your space and breathe new life into it. Show off your style with bold patterns like a metallic floral or keep it subtle with muted tones like a grey textured wallpaper.    Photo: Grey textured wallpaper, dark flooring.COREtec products like Antioch Oak can also be used on walls to add even more unique style to your space. This stunning herringbone design is backed by the patented COREtec technology featuring our innovative COREtec core structure, which is an extruded core made from recycled wood and bamboo dust, limestone and virgin PVC. No matter if you want to incorporate an eye-catching accent wall or cover every wall, adding COREtec planks to your walls can add texture to your space and create a look that is uniquely you.  Photo: Grey textured wall, accent wall, luxury vinyl plank flooring. Whether you like the warm desert memories of Travertine, the cool, chic feel of faux concrete or the fun pop of a textured wall, adding warmth to your home with tones like these can help enhance and shine a light on your personal style. Using products like COREtec’s Ankara Travertine, Weathered Concrete and Antioch Oak can help you achieve this style without sacrificing durability or going over your budget. COREtec has products for every design style and can give you what you need to achieve the look and feel you want for your home.

The Bedroom Has Become the Living Room

Creating Personal Sanctuaries: Calming Bedroom Ideas for Inner and Outer PeaceFor those of us making the best of all of our spaces, every room in our homes can feel like they’re working double. It can be hard to find some peace and quiet amongst all the chaos. Creating calm and peaceful environments in our bedrooms can help to ease the stresses of modern life and provide us with a private space to relax and rejuvenate even in seemingly smaller spaces.For those of us sharing space with our partners, family members or roommates, private space can be a luxurious commodity. Having a place where we can shut the door, get away and take time for ourselves is a necessity to keep our sanity, and the bedroom has become just the place for this. What used to be just a room for sleeping is now so much more.Living rooms have always been communal living spaces where families and roommates can come together for movies, game night or nonchalant hang outs. While we appreciate places that allow us to come together, we also need private living space to focus on our relationship with ourselves.Our Bedrooms Are Our Sanctuaries Our bedrooms have become our own private living spaces for mindfulness activities, such as journaling, praying or meditation, as well as for more productive activities, like work or exercise. Working from home has increased the use of bedroom accessories, such as bed desks and stationary bikes, but this has also increased the need for space to relax and unwind.Photo: Bedroom, luxury vinyl plank flooring, peaceful, private living spaces.When we’re working with limited space, we may find ourselves having to use our dining or living rooms as makeshift office space, making our bedrooms an even more desirable place to leave the stress of the day behind. We want to create a personal sanctuary to help shut off our minds from work and focus on self-care.Utilizing calming and peaceful elements, such as pastel bedroom colors and natural light, can help our brains to shift from work to relaxation more quickly. Soft pinks, lavenders and shades of blue and green can all help you to reduce stress. They can calm your mind, lower your blood pressure, reduce anxiety, and even slow your heart rate.COREtec’s Grande collection offers calming and comfortable colors, such as Grande Khalifa Oak and Grande Vista Oak, that can help you craft the perfect bedroom design for relaxing at the end of a long day. These products pair perfectly with a pastel color palette to add an extra layer of peace to your in-home hideaway.  Photo: Living room, vinyl plank flooring, pastel color palette, peace.Flooring That Fits Your LifestyleWith more activities happening within our homes than ever before, the importance of choosing the best products to fit our lifestyles is growing. Large, multifunctional rooms used to be reserved for the ultra-wealthy, but now many of us are adapting to this new way of life. Conscious home decor choices, such as comforting furniture made of soft and cozy fabrics, mood-enhancing paint colors and stylish and durable floors, are just a few ways to promote self-care within our design choices. Utilizing as much natural light as possible throughout your home can also benefit both your mental and physical health. According to a study by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, prolonged exposure to natural light can help to improve your productivity, sleep, vision and mood. It can also lead to increased vitamin D intake which promotes bone growth and general immunity. Being intentional about what we put into our spaces can help them work better for us. Our dining room tables can become productive office spaces. Our living rooms can become home theaters. Our bedrooms can become sanctuaries from it all. Utilizing our spaces to their full potential can promote a healthier lifestyle and improve our overall well-being.Our Spaces Impact Our HealthConsidering your mental and physical health when constructing your space can benefit you greatly. Using high-quality products, like COREtec flooring or soothing paint colors, can help transform your space into your own personal oasis. We all need a getaway every now and then, even if it’s just getting away from the living room and into the bedroom. Being able to shut the door and settle into a comfy chair or snuggle up under a cozy blanket can be more than enough sometimes. Creating a personal space to unwind and relax can help you to feel better and perform better throughout your day. All it takes is a small change to make a big difference. See how experimenting with some of these calm bedroom design ideas in your home can help you create your perfect peaceful oasis.

Have You Heard the News? Sound Makes All the Difference in Your Home!

Whether you’re a first time guitar player, a backyard DJ or simply someone who enjoys not hearing every step your kids take around the house, acoustics play a big role in all of our lives. Acoustic flooring can make or break the tranquility of your home. Incorporating sound into your decision-making process when selecting flooring can save not just your eardrums, but your peace of mind, as well.  You’ve considered the role of each sense in crafting your feel-good spaces — plush fabrics for comfort, sleek designs that are easy on the eyes and fragrant candles for a welcoming scent. While these elements can come together to form your perfect space, there’s one element that can’t be forgotten: sound.Sound Affects Our Health According to WHO, more than 1 million healthy life years (DALYs) are lost annually because of environmental noise exposure. Most of these DALYs can be attributed to noise-induced sleep disturbance and annoyance. The impact of sound on your health cannot be overlooked.  Your cat’s middle of the night triathlons around your house, your kid’s midnight milk runs, or even your partner slipping to the bathroom can all disturb your sleep if your floors aren’t properly insulated for sound. With COREtec’s Premium and Grande collections, you can rest easy knowing the thick cork underlayment is protecting your health with its innovative sound insulation. While COREtec can't fully soundproof your floors, our products can aid in dampening sounds and preserving your peace and quiet.   Quality Products Can Improve the Overall Health of Your Home Incorporating high quality products into our homes can help us achieve the look, feel and functionality we need from our spaces. Whether you’re working towards a soundproof office, bedroom, or maybe your entire home, COREtec products can help you on your sound-dampening journey. COREtec uses sustainable and durable materials that satisfy the senses and help your floors work for you.   COREtec’s cork underlayment is soft to the touch, with a non-intrusive, slightly sweet odor and creates effective insulation to dampen sound. This cork also has a natural temperature very close to that of the human body, conveying a feeling of comfort and warmth that is difficult to replicate with any other material. Similar to layers of drywall in your walls, this underlayment helps to stop sounds of foot traffic, paw traffic and other unwanted noises from disturbing your peace.  Photo: Cork underlayment, flooring, luxury vinyl plank. Whether you’re looking for a wood look, like Premium’s Noble Oak, or a stone look, like COREtec Stone’s Lucina in your luxury vinyl, all COREtec products are created to be soft, warm and quiet to make your home as comfortable and functional as possible.   Traditional wood and stone can have your feet freezing with the sound of every step echoing around your house. COREtec’s cork underlayment insulates your floor, preventing cold feet and thundering footsteps   Now with space at a premium in our homes, we need flexibility in our spaces to adapt to all the different activities our homes accommodate. With everyone being home, sound control has become an even more pressing challenge.  Floors that Work for Every Space Our homes have rarely been considered “flex” spaces in the past. Each room served its purpose, and we tended to leave it at that. Now we have full days at home. With working remotely from home and virtual learning becoming more and more prevalent, it may stay like that for a lot of people in the foreseeable future.   What was once just a dining room is now a classroom and a workspace, as well. What was once a backyard for BBQs is now a playground. What was once a living room is now a gym, a movie theater and an office. With our spaces taking on new meanings, how do we juggle all of these flex spaces while managing the senses of sight, touch, smell and sound?  While many companies are beginning to address the issue of sound in their products, COREtec has had sound on our mind since our founding. We have always scrutinized every detail of our products to ensure you’re getting style, strength and simplicity from every COREtec product.   Innovation is a foundational part of COREtec. We’ve been monitoring these elements in all of their products since the very beginning, giving you the upper hand in creating your perfect space. Our patented technology gives you the style you want with the sound absorption that you need to coexist with everyone in your home.   Using COREtec flooring puts you in control of the sound in your home and make a world of difference towards soundproof rooms in your space. With all of us in such close quarters nowadays, we’ll take all the extra quiet we can get!   Sound has a significant impact on our mental and physical health. Utilizing innovative products can help us to protect the sounds we want to hear and soften the sounds we don’t.

Family Living Spaces and Pets

This is especially evident in the home space; many first-home buyers navigated home purchase and moves. These new homeowners then started their search for the perfect living room ideas with their dream furniture, flooring and style.For others, uninhabited or underutilized spaces morphed into something new and useful — dining room tables became classrooms, living rooms became gyms, backyards became dog parks and kitchens became coffee shops as our whole lives moved within the walls of our homes.

Reinventing the Home Office

Making ‘Work From Home’ Work for You. The phrase “work from home” has become one we are now all too familiar with, but its impact on our homes has been more widespread than originally predicted. Our work that was initially done in high rise office buildings has moved to our beds or dining room tables. Now, after some time to adjust, work has moved into its own nook in the home: the home office. With this migration of all aspects of our lives happening at home, the entire concept of the home office and our home office design ideas have been reinvented to suit our new needs.Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, a designated office space in the home was more of a luxury than a necessity. We may have had desks to house our drawers full of personal documents or forgotten craft supplies, but not much actual work was being done at them. Now in 2021, a home office is not just a want, but a need for most people.With more of our homes being shown on Zoom these days, the need for a functional, stylish and calming workspace has only increased. The reality of our lives, from kids to pets to clutter, is now on full display, so we have no real need to try and conceal this with minimalistic design anymore.Finding the perfect work from home office designsStark whites have given way to a variety of color and pattern combinations. Dark, contrasting hardwoods have given way to lighter, more inviting tones, like COREtec’s Lyric Oak and Shoreline Maple. Products like these give our home office space a brightness that keeps us motivated when the couch is calling and keeps us glowing during our virtual meetings.     While we still crave organization within our workspaces, the crisp and empty aesthetics that were popular in years prior have given way to more practical styles that allow us to use as much of our space as possible. What used to be a room used mostly for organizing bills or maybe even just an empty corner of the living room is now being utilized to serve a variety of purposes. Kids need a school desk, parents need a workspace, and our new quarantine hobbies need a place to live.Hybrid & Functional Home office design ideasWhile we need our homes to serve a lot more purposes nowadays, we don’t all have the luxury of one space for one purpose. We need products to improve the efficiency of these spaces to serve all of our needs. Stylish, durable and functional products can help us get the most out of our space. COREtec’s Pro offers flooring that is waterproof, warmer and quieter than competing floors, and impact and dent resistantEven as we transition back into a more “normal” way of life, many are still choosing to work from home or have adapted to more hybrid work schedules. While this has definitely shortened our commutes, it has simultaneously increased our need for a designated work space that helps us separate the different aspects of our lives now all taking place within our homes.Pre-pandemic, the simple act of entering our homes marked the difference between the workday and our free time. Now, these aspects of our lives are intertwined, and it can be hard to switch the brain from work to relaxation after logging off. Whether it be a new desk or a certain seat on the couch, designating a specific location for work can help to ease the transition at the end of the workday.This past year has brought about a lot of change; that’s clear. This has created a strong need for comfort and the desire to curate an experience within our spaces, whether that be through personal photos and trinkets or cozy blankets and rugs.For those of us living with roommates or family members, our limited amount of personal space has to serve a lot of purposes: private work spaces, places to work out, personal sanctuaries for relaxing, and so much more. Because of this, we’ve had to put intentional effort into curating our spaces to meet this wide variety of needs.Something that we might have just bought off the rack in passing back in 2019 is now something that we’re taking our time picking out so that we can find the perfect products to fit our spaces. We want desk chairs with adequate back support, keyboards that feel nice under our fingers, and storage to help us transition our spaces through their different uses. Things like rugs help us to feel cozy while high quality resilient flooring allows us to go from pillow forts to at home yoga with ease.All the change of the past year has forced us to adapt our homes to fit this “new normal”. As we adjust, we’ve curated spaces that fit our personal styles and needs and allow us to truly enjoy the spaces we inhabit.Our home office designs have come to reflect who we are and what we value in life, adding an extra layer of comfort to our days by reminding us what we’re working for. Stylish, durable, and functional products paired with organization and comfort pieces make our lives easier and help our space to work for us. While our needs are constantly evolving, one thing we can be certain of is that the need for a home office is not going away.
