Young families are looking for “bulletproof” flooring. Something that can take the abuse from kids and their TONKA trucks, play toys, spilled drinks, and also the occasional pet accident. Hardwood flooring (solid or engineered) is a more expensive floorcovering but will definitely show scratches and wear-and-tear marks. Most laminates cannot take any water or pet issues. And you certainly can’t ceramic tile the entire main floor. So what is the best flooring choice for a young family?
Luxury vinyl is the hottest floorcovering product in the industry today. Luxury vinyl is:
Recently my son bought a townhouse that needed to be gutted and renovated. The floors had to be changed and he has an 80-pound dog that scampers around chasing after his toys. Occasionally the dog gets sick if he eats too fast. So what did he buy?? LUXURY VINYL (“thanks dad!”). The floor was easy to install, comfortable, quiet, and looks very modern. We replaced doorframes, renovated the staircase and gutted 2 bathrooms. We dropped levels and tools and splashed paint on the floor, but the floor cleaned up nice and still looks fantastic. We even installed the luxury vinyl in 2 full showering washrooms and the floor has performed as promised.
Colours are important to consumers, and the right colour choice will compliment the décor of your home. Today, designers are recommending trendy light/medium grey tones and off-white colours, and the luxury vinyl industry has responded with a full palette of these popular, trendy colours. You can even go on their websites to envision what your floor choice will look like in different room scenes.
The new luxury vinyls have a modern textured finish which helps to hide wear-and-tear marks and footprint marks, and yet they are surprisingly easy to clean. The wood grain and tile patterns have a more realistic image of the real macoy than alternative laminate products, and are more quiet and comfortable to walk on.

And, oh yes, it’s 100% WATERPROOF!
