We'd all like to begin the year with our best foot forward, and the home is as great a place to start as any. It's perfectly possible to be on trend without breaking the bank, often all it takes is a few well placed accents that suit your living space and style. In 2017 we see strong shades of green, mixed textures, pastel-hued furniture and mirrored surfaces coming into play - and there are a multitude of ways to interpret these looks.
Putting your personal spin on this year's trends is made easier with Belgotex, who've got an extensive range of flooring products from which to choose your ideal backdrop. This dynamic business has been covering surfaces for over 30 years and have built up a respected global presence. Belgotex specialises in five key flooring types: carpets, vinyl, artificial grass, underlays and rubber.
As you may have noticed if you follow House and Leisure on Instagram, we've teamed up with these flooring experts to artfully match 2017's décor trends with Belgotex products. We hope you'll be inspired by the results.
