Installing vinyl flooring on walls: step by step

Finally, press the slats slightly and wait a few seconds, and you have your vinyl floor installed on the wall.


Installation of vinyl flooring on walls: variety of designs

One of the biggest advantages of vinyl floors is the wide variety of designs you can choose from, and they can also be installed in wet areas such as kitchens, bathrooms or indoor swimming pools.

If you are looking for inspiration for the design of your home on the website of L’Antic Colonial, you will find plenty of ideas. Also, here are some of them for you to take as a reference:

Industrial style

This is one of the most avant-garde styles today, dating back to the mid-twentieth century in New York, when people who could not afford Manhattan’s rental prices began transforming abandoned warehouses and factories into lofts.

If you want to get this kind of design in one or several rooms of the house, combine the vinyl flooring on walls in dark colour like grey together with iron and metal elements like doors, windows or electrical appliances.

Nordic style

If you prefer the Nordic style, characterised by neutral tones, then choose beige or white tones, among others, as vinyl flooring on walls.

This typical style of the Scandinavian countries uses furniture with simple and minimalist lines, especially in wood, as well as combining the aforementioned tones with others such as grey in small shades, for example, on the floor.

Minimalist style

Finally, the minimalist style, although the vinyl flooring for walls of L’Antic Colonial Inifnity Colecction can be adapted to the style you like best thanks to its versatility.

In this case, minimalist spaces predominate and reducing interiors to essential objects, without much or little decoration, everything has a function. In these spaces the colour beige predominates because of the warmth it brings.
