Whether you use feature walls to visually separate two spaces, add texture and depth to a room, or to create a focal point in a home, we’ve got lots of different eco-friendly surfaces for your design theme.

In this space, the homeowner selected SlateFlex (colour: Natural Rustica) by Surface Innovation to surround the fireplace. Using flexible 4′ x 8′ sheets, we easily created a beautiful natural stone focal point for the great room.

Sometimes, the true magnificence of a surface doesn’t emerge until it’s installed. The material suddenly has more texture. The colour is magically more rich. The surface, simply more beautiful.

Love It or List It Vancouver, Wall Treatment




They Loved It!

Earlier this year, we supplied and installed a beautiful feature wall for the season finale of the hit television show Love It or List It Vancouver. The episode recently aired on the W Network and the homeowners LOVED IT!

A huge THANK YOU to celebrity interior designer Jillian Harris for selecting The Eco Floor Store to supply and install the show-stopping feature wall for the season finale of Love It or List It Vancouver.

The wall treatment is made with reclaimed barn wood tiles handmade by Everitt & Schilling. Julia Whyte, Assistant Designer for Love It or List It Vancouver, said our wall feature is her “absolute favourite” aspect of the renovation!

Wood Wall Tiles Featured on Love It or List It Vancouver

Love It or List It Vancouver

We were on the edge of our seats the whole episode… We couldn’t wait to find out if homeowners Jeff and Paige loved their renovated home or decided to sell their home on Season 1, Episode 13 of Love It or List It Vancouver.

Love It or List It Vancouver, Wall Feature

Co-host and interior designer Jillian Harris killed it once again and the homeowners LOVED it! And we 100% agree – the renovation was spectacular.

The Eco Floor Store supplied and installed one of our unique environmentally friendly wall surfaces for the season finale of the hit television series: reclaimed barn wood wall tiles by Everitt & Schilling Tile Co.

Jillian hand-picked the wood tiles for the striking feature wall in the dining room. The feature wall is 7′ wide and the white wash tiles – 3″ x 6″ in a traditional herringbone pattern – go floor to ceiling. It’s a great design idea to help visually separate the dining area from the living room without taking up much (if any!) space! Love, love, love it!

Love It or List It Vancouver, Wood Wall Tiles

Julia Whyte, Assistant Designer for Love It or List It Vancouver, had this to say about our beautiful feature wall installation:

“There were sooo many elements that I absolutely loved, but I have to admit that the whitewashed reclaimed barn board herringbone wall treatment was my absolute favourite. I love all of those adjectives on their own, so imagine my delight when I saw that someone had combined them into one super-product! I didn’t just love this product though; I also love HOW we used it.

Often times open-concept houses lack any kind of definition to the rooms. By centering the barn board on the wall to the dining room light fixture and making it as wide as the eating area, we not only defined the dining portion of the space, we added a gorgeous feature that brings an incredible amount of beach charm to the whole main floor since you can see it from the kitchen and living room as well.” (Read her full recap here.)

Everitt & Schilling wood wall tiles are made from reclaimed wood found in old barns throughout the western United States. The tiles are handmade and available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. + Learn more here
