Trendiest flooring this year:
Vinyl? Yes, please.
With modern technology, vinyl flooring gives off an illusion eerily similar to natural wood and stone. The ability of vinyl to mimic the appearance of traditional high-end materials, and the natural beauty of hardwood flooring make vinyl a middle of the road option in terms of cost. Not only does vinyl flooring look flawless, but it also comes in a sweeping variety of decorative patterns. At SMI Flooring Distributors, our inclusive selection of luxury PermaShield Vinyl ranges in shade from Beach Beige to Golden Mocha with Burnt Grey in between. Styling options aside, Vinyl flooring is most notably a popular choice because it is durable, easy to clean, and overall, one of the easiest floors to maintain.
Vinyl vs Real Wood
While many still may gravitate towards the real thing- hardwood flooring bears several limitations that vinyl does not. Unlike real wood flooring, vinyl can be exposed to moisture without the worry of warping and staining. This means vinyl can be installed in bathrooms, laundry rooms, mud rooms, and other areas where there is a chance of water exposure. Vinyl flooring also stands the test of time in high traffic household areas. Unlike wood, vinyl is scratch resistant and resists damages much better. The durability of vinyl ensures your investment will be worthwhile- with hardwood there is much more unpredictability.
Top vinyl flooring trends include vinyl sheets for budget friendly styling, stone model vinyl tiles for a luxurious marble look, and a notable favorite, vinyl planks modeled after wood that give a timeless, classic appearance in a home.
