There’s no doubt that natural flooring adds instant texture and warmth to any room, but it’s not one size fits all when it comes to jute, sisal and seagrass. Here’s everything you need to know thanks to the team at Natural Floors in Stepney.
Seagrass, sisal and jute are natural fibres offering great textural quality, which is important in effective interior design. Natural flooring, in the way of rugs, runners and wall to wall installations, also offers a wonderful neutral palette. For expert advice on what type of flooring should be used where (for example, high traffic areas such as living spaces and entrances require harder-wearing flooring compared to less frequented spaces such as bedrooms) the experienced team at Natural Floors can help.
Natural Floors is an Australian owned natural flooring business with offices in Adelaide and Melbourne. The team have over 30 years’ experience in sourcing and laying stunning natural flooring solutions. Working directly with interior designers, architects and private clients, each product is completely bespoke and made to order and each rug is customised and hand-binded onsite using local materials.
Made from Agave sisalana and harvested in Africa, Brazil, Madagascar and China, sisal flooring has a flat, extra small weave. It works well in any part of the home but is particularly good for offices where desks and chairs with caster wheels might be used.
Soft to touch, wool and jute blend flooring is perfect for bedrooms and living areas. Large and luxurious boucle weaves also add texture.
Natural jute floorings are made from vegetable fibres, mostly grown in India and Bangladesh. The natural colour selections make this flooring ideal for living areas and bedrooms. A range of weaves are available.
Made from flowering plants found in marine environments, seagrass flooring is ideal for high transit areas due its wavy coating that offers excellent stain resistance.
