Floor materials that flow from the interior to the exterior allow residential spaces to merge. Whether it involves stone or durable outdoor floorboards that can beautify a garden, or sports floors that contribute in their own special way to the user’s sense of well-being – outdoor areas become an extension of each person’s own private oases.
Health and wellness are a major social trend at present, and for many people that means spending plenty of their leisure time outdoors in natural settings. On sunny days, patios, decks, balconies and gardens double as lovingly designed, lifestyle-enhancing outdoor extensions of indoor living spaces. The same holds true in the contract flooring sector. Society’s growing awareness of health and wellness translates into heightened expectations in terms of the visual aesthetics, quality and characteristics of outdoor flooring products – whether in the home or in hotels, restaurants and outdoor areas of showrooms.
It is with these trends firmly in mind that the companies exhibiting at DOMOTEX are increasingly developing high-quality flooring made of natural wood, innovative planks made of WPC, and tiles that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The sheer range of the products available provides a richly diverse and creative design palette for home owners and contract flooring professionals. Architects and interior designers use the products showcased by exhibitors at DOMOTEX to create fluid transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces. By connecting otherwise disparate functional areas, these products create unique spaces that contribute directly to the wellbeing of the people who live and work in them. Following is a selection of exhibitor projects which exemplify this.
