Pink Resin Wall Colours by Sphere8

March 29 2017

Colour Focus: Millennial Pink

Those who have checked out our Instagram feed know that every Wednesday we like to turn our eye to our resin wall finishes - it seems unfair that they get so little attention! Our floors are definitely what we're known for, but seamless surfaces are vertical as well as horizontal. It seems particularly unjust as our wall finishes are available in over 100 colours - so you have the chance to make a really unique statement.

With so many colours to choose from it can be hard to focus on just one... so we thought we'd turn your attention to the "colour of the moment"... Millennial Pink!

Green floors... in every colour!

This week we were very proud to be featured in Deco Magazine as the go-to environmentally-friendly flooring of choice. The double page feature can be viewed online HERE – and you can also see Deco Magazine online with their focus on eco-friendly interior solutions. We’re delighted to be included in their list of eco-friendly interior suppliers and we thought we’d share just some of the things that make Sphere8 a “green” choice – whatever colour you choose!

Decorating home spaces...

We are often asked about how suitable our floors are for residential projects – and we’re happy to say they are perfectly suited to private homes of all shapes and sizes! Warm underfoot, durable and comfortable to live with, a Sphere8 resin floor can be used in every room from kitchen and sitting room to bathroom or bedroom! However, this then raises the bigger question of how to style a home with a seamless resin floor… so we thought we’d look into some of our favourite home spaces and how they’ve been decorated!

Choosing your resin floor...

We know that a lot of our clients are unfamiliar with resin floors, and uncertain what the process involves... to help wherever possible, we've put together a guide to choosing your resin floor!

Choosing any flooring solution for your home or business is a big commitment. Whatever the colour, material or finish it will create the canvas on which you build the rest of your interior space. We appreciate that choosing a resin floor is an equally involved decision, sometimes even more so as many clients are unfamiliar with the product and need additional guidance. At Sphere8 we have spent nearly a decade installing poured resin floors and hand-applied resin wall finishes throughout the UK and the world, so you can trust that you are dealing with the experts.

Goldfinger Factory, Wellcome Trust magazine rack

January 19 2017

Pushing the boundaries…

At Sphere8 we have spent nearly 8 (conveniently!) years building up our expertise in hand-poured floors and hand-applied wall coverings. Our resin has been adapted and perfected for this purpose, made UV-stable and durable with different build ups for almost every environment imaginable. However, we hadn’t planned for furniture! Not that this deterred us when we embarked on a project with Goldfinger Factory and Wellcome Trust to cover a bespoke magazine rack in layers of resin…

Product Focus: New Colour Range

We are now well and truly into 2017 – nearly two weeks back in the office and mince pies and mulled wine are a distant memory! To celebrate the turning over of a new leaf, we’ve been busy in our Development Centre creating samples galore in preparation for a new year of showroom appointments, consultations and design meetings. So it seems as good a time as any to introduce you to some of the new Sphere8 colours – and give you a sneak peak of what’s to come!

Sphere8 resin flooring under floor heating

December 8 2016

Don't go getting cold feet!

At this time of year, with the afternoons still getting steadily darker and the temperatures dropping, it’s more important than ever to feel cosy and warm at home. Few clients think to ask about under-floor heating in those few exciting days of a British heatwave, but come Autumn and Winter we field constant questions about how our floors are compatible with under-floor heating and how necessary it is. Given the start of advent (and a recent shift into Winter weather!) we thought now was the perfect time to answer all those questions and share the advice of our under-floor heating partners Warmup! Read on for more information about types of under-floor heating, how it works, and whether you need it…

Sphere8 take home two FeRFA Awards!

It was almost a week ago now that we headed north for the annual Resin Flooring Association Awards, and after a very busy week there’s finally time to reflect on our success! The awards ceremony features as a regular date in the Sphere8 diary, and every year we’ve been successful in taking home at least one award – this year was no different with Sphere8 accepting not one but two Highly Commended awards for both Small and Large Commercial Project of the Year!

Design Focus: Home Spas with Sphere8 Wall Finishes

Of all the rooms in our homes, bathrooms are the most often overlooked. It's easy to think of these rooms as purely functional - there seems to be enough to consider when choosing between jacuzzi baths and waterfall shower heads without over-thinking the aesthetics. However, with Sphere8 resin wall finishes and floors you can forever banish white tiles, dirty grouting, and seahorse motifs - and create a soothing, relaxing environment to unwind in with your very own home spa.
