reclaimed tiles
Why buy new when you could
reuse? Whether you’re after simple
plains or ornate encaustic designs,
Bert & May has a large collection of
antique tiles. Terracotta is another
popular pre-used option. it’s
available at most reclamation yards,
but you’ll probably need to clean
the tiles before fitting.

colourFul rubber
rubber comes in a variety of bold
colours and is naturally water- and
slip-resistant, so it’s great for busy
homes. avoid synthetic versions,
which can be slow to degrade. We’d
recommend The Colour Flooring
Company: ‘Our rubber flooring is
made out of natural materials and
has been awarded eco certifications,’
says Lena Corner, director.

Woven Fibre
natural flooring offers a rustic
look that’s resilient and good at
hiding dirt. Made from plant
fibres, the textures vary – some are
soft, others rough, such as coir. ‘its
strong fibres make it perfect for
high-traffic rooms, but less good
in humid areas like bathrooms,’
says guy gibbon, Sisal &
Seagrass’ managing director.
