HOW TO USE | ZONED AREAS

6 February 2018

Blog post

Within flooring it is common to see spaces zoned by using different colours, textures or cut elements. Individual floors, walkways and break-out spaces can all benefit from zoning in this way.

The modular nature of carpet tiles allows you to switch out colours, textures and create new shapes on the floor. 

Case study examples below show successful zoned areas. Resulting in a mix of creative, bold and subtle ideas.
