Designers’ Best Kept Secret: Vinyl Flooring at Family Floors
Family Floors is a third-generation flooring company that knows the importance of style and durability while being cost-efficient. The owners, Melissa and Jay, understand that great floors need to look exceptional and perform outstandingly.
“Vinyl flooring is hot right now. Everyone wants it,” Melissa said.
Vinyl flooring might be the greatest innovation since the microwave. Vinyl flooring costs significantly less than other flooring options and mimics the look of tile and hardwood effortlessly. Family Floors offers several types of vinyl: luxury vinyl tile, luxury vinyl plank, and sheet vinyl.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury vinyl tile looks like ceramic or stone tile because of its warm, natural colors and surface texture. Advancements in design and technology make vinyl tile look and feel like the real thing. Certain styles can even be installed with grout!
“Vinyl tile doesn’t crack like traditional tile, such as ceramic and porcelain. Vinyl tile also has the same look but will last a lot longer,” Jay said.
Luxury Vinyl Plank
Luxury vinyl plank is sophisticated in color and texture. Any species and color of hardwood are achievable, and vinyl can be texturized by embossing or scraping. Also, the width and length of vinyl planks alternates and may be installed horizontally, diagonally, etc.
“With vinyl plank, you get the advantage that it looks like hardwood without the cost. You also get the ultimate durability,” Jay said.
The magic is in the PVC composite core that gives vinyl its strength. Unlike traditional hardwood or engineered hardwood floors, vinyl plank flooring is very hard to dent or scratch because of its structure.
Sheet vinyl is a fiberglass-cushion backed sheet that is installed in one layer and glued directly to the subfloor. From stone to hardwood, any style is achievable with sheet vinyl. Many homeowners are opting for sheet vinyl because there’s an incredible array of trendy colors and styles to choose from.
The Benefits of Vinyl
If you have a family with young children or pets, then you’re aware of how messy they can be. It’s hard to believe such adorable beings can be so destructive! Rather than trying to have your little ones tone down their playfulness, consider installing vinyl flooring! Most vinyl styles are virtually waterproof, which means it can be installed practically anywhere.
“Because of its ability to withstand active households with kids and pets, people coming in from the pool, and accidents from pets, vinyl is gaining popularity,” Jay said.
The vinyl styles offered at Family Floors are timeless, beautiful, and comfortable underfoot. And Family Floors’ certified team of home installers are efficient and attentive when installing flooring, so the end result is stunning.
