Flooring planks aren’t only setting the foundation for comfort and design under foot. These days, manufacturers are producing flooring that can also be used to add texture and unique design to walls and even ceilings. Designers are taking these planks up, creating standout interiors from floor to ceiling. In this issue of Floor Trends, hear how retailers and designers are responding to the trend and take a look at a few floor-to-wall covering products (and some that are inspired by the trend) that are leading the way vertically.
“I think a big driver of this trend is homeowners wanting to add texture and layers back into their homes with more than just their soft finishes,” said Nikki James, studio manager for home builder Ashton Woods’ Dallas division. “They want to build character, and with so many options in tile and wood floors, the opportunities to personalize are endless.”
