Originally a brand specialising in vinyl wall stickers and wallpaper murals, British home décor label Zazous expanded into flooring back in 2012 and has seen that side of the business grow in popularity ever since.
Made from self-adhesive vinyl, the tiles are practical, easy-to-lay, durable and inexpensive at less than £20 per square metre. Perfect for a kitchen, bathroom, conservatory or even your hallway, each tile measures 30.5cm x 30.5 cm, with eleven tiles in a pack.
With the launch of two new collections this summer, I wanted to share not only the brand-new designs but also work with Zazous on designing different room settings for each of these tiles to show you just how easy that could work in your home.
First up we’re travelling to Cuba – Havana to be precise. Inspired by an original blue tiled floor in the Unesco World Heritage site of Trinidad in Cuba, there are three colourways in this collection – Havana Night, which is a monochrome design, Havana Day, which is a stunning bold blue and grey print, and Havana Dawn, which incorporates a dusky pink shade.
Let’s see how I styled each one…
A mix of natural textures and citrus shades work well with the Havana Day vinyl floor tiles, especially if this was curated in an entrance. Talk about making a good first impression.
How chic does this grey and pink design look? For this bathroom idea featured the Havana Dawn vinyl tiles, I wanted to keep the space as feminine as possible with pretty blooms, roll top bath and pink accessories.
For the Havana Night vinyl tiles I wanted to go with something a little more eclectic, hence the statement floor lamp and faux cactus, showing you how versatile this monochrome design really is.
The second collection for summer is the Sorzano Vinyl Floor Tile. Sorzano is named after the village in the Rioja region of Spain, where the original tiles that inspired this design were discovered in a beautiful Spanish farmhouse. Sorzano Original features a muted colour palette of grey and mustard, designed to suit any modern or period home, while Foliage and Sage are available in more vintage tones of grey and green.
For the green and white Sorzano Foliage vinyl tiles, I wanted to take a vintage approach with Orla Kiely prints and mid-century inspired furniture to make a feature of the retro colour palette used.
For the Sorzano Sage vinyl floor tiles – a simple grey and white colour palette – I went with a more classic, structured look with chrome finishes. This design would be ideal for the hallway of a modern built property.
So there you have it – five very different ways to style the brand new Zazous vinyl floor tiles, available to buy now. Which one is your favourite? Are vinyl floor tiles something you’d considered before?
