When creating a room with a coastal beach-hut feel, the floor you choose plays a big part. As our Flooring Expert Michael said in this ideal homes article, ‘wood is really the only way to go with flooring if you want to nail down that coastal theme’.

A weathered oak effect floor really gives the authentic worn look that you'd find in a coastal home. The Karndean Knight Tile Arctic Driftwood embodies this perfectly, giving your room an element of character and interest, but without the maintenance of a real wood floor.

If you do want to opt for a real wood floor, light-stained character oak planks are ideal - something like the Kahrs Da Capo Oak Indossati. Every board is unique and features cracks and a textured brushed finish, designed to compliment the décor of your coastal haven inspired room.

If you want the coastal inspired space but whilst staying on-trend, opt for a grey driftwood effect laminate. The Kronospan Vintage Blackwater Oak works perfectly, and will compliment a number of interiors, but especially stylish greys.

If you want to break up the space, a rug is ideal to add another element of texture. The Adornets Geo rug features a diamond pattern which will really compliment your wood floor. Or maybe you want to add more coastal blue into your room - the grindstone rug works great for this, featuring a blend of blues and textures.
