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.
