Pantone Color of the Year 2022 – Very Peri

Each year Pantone releases distinct colors that set the bar for trends in the fashion, art, design and technology industries. 

In 2022, that color is Very Peri and marks the first time that a new color is created.

Not only do the colors have a distinct look but a distinct meaning as well.

According to Pantone reps, Very Peri is an “eye-catching blue, with purple undertones” — a “joyful, dynamic and calming,” colour which “represents the changing times we’re in and this new period of growing.”

“As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of Pantone very peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue color family,” says the Institute’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman.

“Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time with its violet-red undertone, (it) displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”

Get inspired by Very Peri by adding the color to your home’s interior design.

Design pieces can be in the form of lavender flowers, very peri-paint, wallpaper, bedding, drapes and a rug.

Protecting Your Hardwood Floors From Furniture Damage

Having beautiful hardwood floors is one thing, keeping them that way is another.

How do we maintain and prevent our beautiful floors from scratches, dents and scuffs?

These tips can help save you time and money on costly repairs and replacements.

Entryway Mat

Often an overlooked item against floor protection, having an entry mat at every entry way can help prevent the transfer of dirt, rocks and debris from being transferred into your home. 

Area Rug

In addition to the interior design benefits, an area rug equipped with a non-slip pad can offer great protection from marks and dents to your hardwood floor. The non slip pad can prevent unwanted furniture shifts which lowers the risk of floor damage.

When furniture such as tables stay in place for a long period of time, it can leave permanent dents and scuffs to your floors.  

Furniture Protectors and Pads

Furniture pads are installed to the bottom of furniture legs to prevent scratches and dents. They are mostly made of felt, rubber, or foam and help to protect your floors from scratches by adding a protective barrier to your hardwood.

A disadvantage to these protectors is wear over an extended period of time and they can easily slip off. Some protectors don’t have anti slip applications and can leave scuff marks. You will have to be mindful of the pad wear overtime to prevent the bare furniture from damaging your floors.

Overall, it’s best to use an area rug with a non slip pad. If you use a furniture protector or pad, you will have to periodically check for wear and ensure that it is secure.

We hope that these flooring tips will help protect your flooring investment.

Laminate On Walls

If you’re tired of the typical paint or wallpaper design to your accent walls, try wood flooring on your walls as an option. Why not have that forest canvas behind a rustic laminate wall area to add to the natural theme of your room. Or use your bedroom accent wall to create your own laminate themed headboard.

Can Your Floors Help Protect You Against COVID-19 ?

Your provincial or state Health Officer have been recommending safety practices such as social distancing, face coverings and frequent hand washing to help reduce the spread of COVID-19; one area that may be overlooked are your floors.

After all, air pathogens, droplets, and viruses when released from sneezing or coughing may land on your floors. Tile joints, grouting, carpet, vinyl and hardwood, and laminate joints are all at risk of collecting dust, bacteria and viruses over time.

What Is Seamless Flooring?


Seamless floors don’t have any joints, seams, or ridges. It’s poured epoxy, urethane, or methyl methacrylate formulations and the floors become a part of the building’s structure.

Why Seamless Floors?

You may have seen seamless flooring in doctor offices, hospitals, laboratories  manufacturing facilities, gyms, and some commercial spaces. They offer the ultimate protection against bacteria due to their durability, chemical resistance and seamless nature.  

What are Some Benefits of Seamless Floors?

  • Easy to Maintain
  • High Durability –  great option for high traffic areas and durable against heavy equipment such as carts
  • Chemical and acid resistance
  • Can be pressure washed in some cases
  • No Joints/Seams – minimizes dust/bacteria collection

  • Mold Resistance

What Steps Can I Take For a Cleaner Environment?

Consider seamless flooring for your next renovation or new build project. Companies are restructuring their workplace safety initiatives by including COVID-19 safety measures. Such as implementing seating arrangements with social distancing measures and sanitary barriers. 

Seamless flooring attracts a cleaner environment, offers less dust, and dirt which leads to less frequent cleaning. It leaves your commercial space or home looking more spacious and can provide a vibrant modern decor.
