Successful renovation projects are not just the result of good design they're also dependent on materials used. Your choice of flooring, in particular, can make all the difference to the overall look of your home.

One of the strongest trends in recent years is the use of coloured and textured concrete that incorporates the Peter Fell system.

This house, designed and built by Signature Homes, is a good example. The kitchen and family living areas feature coloured concrete flooring laid to resemble large flagstones. The natural, mottled appearance adds a casual, relaxed look.

A wide range of colours and exposed aggregate mixes are available with the Peter Fell system, and as the colour is an integral part of the concrete, it won't chip off or wear away. The company also uses sealers specifically formulated and manufactured in New Zealand for the Peter Fell system. These are designed for local conditions, and ensure surfaces are easy to maintain. They also retain the natural look of the flooring.
