Minecraft and Monopoly - Fututristic Flooring



With so many different styles and colours of wallpaper and plenty of beautiful accessories available for your home, it seems logical to be able to add printed flooring that is just as personalised and exciting. Wooden floors and carpet are fit for purpose but if I could add the extra wow factor to my rooms then I certainly would. Something that completely transforms a lounge, bathroom or bedroom into something really special.


UK Flooring Direct have created some images to show just how amazing flooring of the future could be. This beach scene above looks so realistic and would be ideal for bathrooms. It would make climbing in to the bath feel like getting into the ocean! Perfect for those that live miles away from the sea. 

They have suggested hopscotch and football pitch designs to bring a little of the outdoors inside, Monopoly and Twister so the family can play without a board game in sight and Minecraft and Tetris to create a gamers paradise. The choices are limitless.

This optical illusion is incredible and would make even the fearless feel a little uneasy walking in.




I decided to ask my family what flooring they would have if they could design it themselves....


Minxy 'I'd love to have grass flooring with tiny bunny rabbits and other cute animals so I could play vets all of the time. I'd pretend to be sat in a field on a sunny day and have my whole bedroom the same theme. A stage would be cool for my singing and dancing too.'

Jamster 'The Minecraft one is epic but I'd like Super Mario and Angry Birds in my room so I could be like a character in a game. It would be good to have a wrestling ring to play in or even mud to slide around on without getting dirty.'

The Mr 'Sand to remind me of my travels through Africa in my Land Rover would be quite good, it might make me happier getting up for work, hey!'




And I asked a couple of friends too...


'Jelly Babies, 'cus I love them.'

'Water makes me feel relaxed so I'd have plenty of fish under my heels.'

'A mineshaft to scare everyone. That would be funny.'

'Flowers. Hubby never buys me them so it would be lovely to find a way to have them in the house all the time.'


I think I'd opt for wooden look flooring personally with sparkles in so that it looks clean all of the time. I'm no domestic goddess and the fairies don't seem to visit here unfortunately so it might give me just a few minutes to put my feet up! 



What flooring would you pick?
