If you fancy cheering yourself up and brightening up your home without spending a fortune, a gorgeous new oilcloth could well be the answer. You’ll be surprised how a flash of colour or a pretty pattern can really add a new lease of life to your décor. Hang some photographs, scatter some cushions or light some candles and you’ll be amazed at the transformation!

Pantone Colour of the Year 2017


Pantone Colour of the Year – Greenery

Each year, the Pantone Colour Institute predict a colour trend, and for 2017, that colour is ‘Greenery’.

Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance that we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Colour Institute
Pantone Colour of the Year 2017

At Only Oilcloths, we’re loving this fresh and zesty yellow-green shade, and in this blog article, we thought that we would share some of our favourite oilcloths in similar hues of this refreshing colour.

“A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings”

Whilst baking is certainly a lot of fun, the mess that’s left over isn’t – especially when the children want to get involved! That’s where our oilcloths come in.

As an oilcloth will protect your surfaces from spills and mess, you can prep at the kitchen table rather than at your worktop – perfect for baking with young children! Plus, our oilcloths can be wiped clean in a matter of seconds so you can enjoy all the fun of a family baking session without spending ages cleaning up.

So, after a fun-filled baking session, simply wipe your oilcloth clean with a damp cloth and it will look as good as new.

Funky designs for kids

We have a fantastic range of children’s oilcloths available in a wide variety of colours and patterns. Whether your little ones are into jungle animals, farm animals, dinosaurs, pirates, tractors, diggers or boats, we have an oilcloth that’s sure to delight!
