Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) are both incredibly durable flooring choices that can be installed in any room of your home. LVP is designed to mimic the natural beauty of hardwood flooring, but it is more affordable and can be installed in rooms of the home prone to moisture, such as the bathroom and laundry room. LVT is designed to look like natural stone or tile flooring, but it is softer underfoot, easier to install, and typically more affordable. Luxury vinyl flooring is also easy to clean and maintain. Luxury vinyl flooring is designed to resist water, fading, wear and tear, and scratching, as well as stains.
Spills and dirt wipe up with ease, and luxury vinyl flooring won’t bow if your child likes to play pirate explorer in the bathtub or forgets to grab a towel before coming in from the pool for a snack. It is truly worry-free flooring that will last your family for many years to come.
Available in a wide variety of colors, patterns, designs, there will be an LVP or LVT product to match your home’s aesthetic.
Laminate flooring is also a great choice for families and homes with children because of its versatility and durability. Laminate flooring mimics the colors, styles, and characteristics of natural hardwood flooring but is typically more affordable and easier to install. Laminate flooring is also scratch-resistant, water-resistant, fade-resistant, wear-and-tear-resistant, and stain-resistant. Laminate flooring can handle high-traffic areas of your home with ease, and dirt being tracked in from a day at the soccer field can be swept up or wiped up easily without a lot of effort or time. Laminate flooring is a great choice for many rooms of your home, including hallways and entryways, that see a lot of use.
Available in a wide variety of colors, styles, and designs, there is sure to be a laminate flooring that matches your personal style that can handle your lifestyle.
You may not immediately think of carpet as being kid-friendly flooring, but thanks to the latest advances in manufacturing technology, today’s carpet is more durable than ever. Carpet gives your room an extra sense of comfort and softness, perfect for the knees of crawling babies or the tumbles of toddlerhood. But carpet is also made to be stain-resistant, fade-resistant, and resistant to wear and tear, so it can also handle the spills and regular messes that are inevitable in a home with children. Carpet is ideal in bedrooms and living rooms, where you want that extra touch of coziness.
Carpet is available in a large variety of colors, textures, patterns, designs, and performance levels. So, you will be sure to find the perfect carpet for your style and lifestyle.
