If you’re in the market for flooring, you’ve probably heard the term ‘Floating Floor’ bouncing around. It sounds mysterious. What is a Floating Floor? How can floor a ‘float’? Is it a specific type of material? A floating floor is actually not a type floor, it is an installation method. Both laminate and vinyl plank most commonly come in Floating Floor format and many of their benefits have to do with this.

Waterproof Vinyl Plank

Vinyl Plank is unlike any other floor covering. It is 100% waterproof. It is made from PVC, a kind of plastic which does not absorb moisture whatsoever.

Pergo Vinyl Plank

Pergo is back! We haven’t heard much from the Swedish company Pergo since they invented laminate in the 1970’s. They made an excellent product, but they were soon overshadowed by competitors. In the last couple of years however, Pergo has made quite a resurgence, stepping back up to the plate with a stellar line of Vinyl Plank. Their high-end line of LVP and LVT, called ‘Pergo Extreme’ is top notch: it has some of the best embossing we’ve ever seen, very forward-thinking on-trend looks, it is superbly durable and waterproof and it comes with a solid warranty.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of blist.
