While this is seldomly known but floors in our house can be damaging to the joints and induce micro-tears and other ailments.
This is due to some floors like concrete, marble or hardwood being too rigid and inflexible for our feet which were evolved to traverse uneven terrain in nature.
Nowhere in nature do we experience long stretches of concrete sidewalk, hardwood or tile floors.
Although we’ve been wearing shoes for millennia, these modern surfaces are challenging the biomechanical features of our feet, resulting in pain and inflammation.
Simply standing on these unforgiving surfaces for any length of time applies great pressure on the plantar fascia, as does the repetitive impact of the heel on a hard surface in an activity like walking or running.
These are legitimate concerns and one of the problems our floorings solve! They are not just beautiful, stylish and durable but also soft, safe and anti-slip.
Our floorings mould over any uneven areas and transform your floor into a uniform and soft platform for comfortable and healthy walking that will last for 7-10 years!
Each of these actions put pressure and stress on the tissue that connects the heel to the toes to maintain the arch and positions of the bones in the feet.
Small, micro-tears develop which can become worse over time or even lead to a complete rupture, in some cases requiring surgical intervention.
How do we combat these rigid and often times unnatural floors?
Well we could use floor sheets that are soft and malleable contorting slightly to the your every step. This will ease the pressure on the joints while providing a much more comfortable walking experience!
Honpo brought in floorings that provide a soft, smooth and even surface to walk on reducing stress on the joints. The floorings are also incredibly suave, stylish and plain beautiful. With designs ranging from Moroccan tiles to wood and metallic. They also mould over uneven surfaces creating safe and healthy uniform surfaces for all to traverse.
For Mother's Day, Honpo is offering an amazing flooring package to remake your living room for all to enjoy!
An efficient and practical mindset but we can all agree our mothers deserves all the best things in the world.
Be it clothing, jewellry, lifestyle products or comfort.
A rich space incorporates all of these characteristics to create a layered and well-designed scheme.
Wallpaper is the only method by which you can achieve all of these powerful design qualities together as a single package.
Thus making wallpaper the easiest and the cheapest way to drastically transform a space without hassling over a hundred different elements and design.
Wallpaper also further adds a very subtle texture and depth for more visual interest which cannot be achieved with just a simple flat coat of paint.
Common misconceptions of wallpaper
1. Wallpaper is difficult to clean
This may be true for wallpaper in the 1900s but with modern technology.
Most wallpapers are made with non-woven material and can be washed or wiped down with a wet cloth and detergent!
2. I’m stuck with it!
The non-woven material of our wallpapers make it easy to remove and repaste should you so desire!
In fact, for the adventurous few, it is possible to give your house a different theme every few years.
Old patterns were surface prints that had no texture and were limited in pattern, style, and colour range.
New wallpapers break this frame bringing new colours, textural surfaces, and contemporary details etc.
4. Decor element of the past
Wallpapers are constantly used by interior designers, architects and homeowners!
In fact, if you see a wall with a pattern it is likely that it's wallpaper!
Like Paint, wallpaper has a range of price points to consider. However, unlike paint, wallpapers can last for 10-15 years. While paint will start shedding and lose its colours requiring a repaint every few years costing money and time.
