Have you ever considered mixing LVT colours to create a unique flooring design in your space? The idea of installing two different LVT colours together may seem unconventional, but it can lead to stunning results that elevate the aesthetic of your home. In this post, we'll delve into the possibilities of mixing LVT colours to achieve multi-tonal or half-and-half flooring options.


Mixing LVT Colours: Unleashing Creativity

When it comes to mixing LVT colours, the key is to ensure that the colours come from the same range. This is essential to guarantee that the size, heights and finishes of the LVT planks work seamlessly together, creating a cohesive look. With glue-down LVT, you have the flexibility to mix and match colours as you desire.


Creating High Variation Flooring

One approach to mixing LVT colours is to combine various shades from the same range to create a high-variation look throughout your space. This technique adds depth and visual interest, giving your flooring a dynamic and textured appearance. By blending different hues, you can achieve a flooring design that is truly one-of-a-kind.

If it’s the multi tonal look that you are after another option is to choose a product that already comes with a high colour variation. There are a number of products that are considered multi tonal by nature, an example of this is Karndean Art Select Vintage Hickory EW12.

Half-and-Half Flooring Options

Another intriguing way to incorporate multiple LVT colours is to opt for a half-and-half flooring design. This approach allows you to divide your space into distinct areas with contrasting colours, adding a touch of sophistication and creativity to your interiors.

The answer to the question "Can I install 2 different LVT colours together?" is a resounding yes. By selecting colours from the same range and embracing the versatility of glue-down LVT, you can unlock a world of design possibilities and transform your space into a truly exceptional showcase of creativity and style.

If you're considering mixing LVT colours for your next flooring project, don't hesitate to explore the endless combinations available to you. Let your imagination run wild, and watch as your floors become a reflection of your unique vision and personality.

Some considerations to think about before opting for a mixed product flooring are:

1. Colour Selection: Carefully choose the two LVT colours that will make up your design. Consider how they complement each other and the overall aesthetic you want to achieve.


2. Coordinating Styles: Ensure that the two colours you select work well together and match the existing or planned décor and furniture in the space.


3. Room Layout: Evaluate the layout of the rooms where the half-and-half or mixed colour flooring will be installed. Consider how the two colours will transition between spaces and how the design will flow throughout the home.


4. Lighting Conditions: Take into account the natural and artificial lighting in the rooms. Certain colours may appear different under various lighting conditions, so it's important to test how the colours look in different lighting scenarios.


5. Room Size: The choice of colours can impact the perceived size of a room. Lighter colours tend to make a space feel more open and airy, while darker colours can create a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Consider how the design will influence the perceived size of the rooms.


6. Maintenance: Different colours may show dirt, dust, or wear differently. Consider how easy it will be to maintain and clean each colour of LVT in the half-and-half design.


7. Design Cohesion: Ensure that the flooring design complements the overall design theme of your home. It should enhance the aesthetic appeal and create a cohesive look throughout the space.


8. Seamless Transition: Plan how the two colours will transition from one to the other. Properly blending the colours or using a transition piece can help create a seamless and visually appealing design.


We hope this post has inspired you to consider the creative possibilities of mixing LVT colours in your home. Whether you opt for a high-variation look or a distinctive half-and-half design, experimenting with different colour combinations can transform your space into a work of art.


Remember, when it comes to design, there are no limits—only endless opportunities to express your individual style. So go ahead, mix those LVT colours, and let your floors tell a story as unique as you are.
