4 Flooring Trends We Love!

#1 –Smart Squares from Engineered Floors

Smart Squares is the new residential carpet tile from Engineered Floors. We love this product because it is a peel n’ stick carpet tile! Engineered Floors took the company’s most popular broadloom carpets and made them into carpet tiles. They are made with the company’s PureColor fiber so they are solution-dyed products. Also, the carpet tiles are comfortable underfoot because they have a Kanga Hide cushion backing attached to each carpet square.

Each plank has a beautiful design, so you can create a gorgeous look for your home. Some of the SPC luxury vinyl tile comes with an attached pad. In addition, the SPC LVT from the Carpet Express Showcase Collection are great for DIY installation.

#3 –Sheet Vinyl Flooring – Bringing Back The Classics!

Honestly, Sheet Vinyl Flooring is a classic flooring option that continues to stay in style. Sheet vinyl flooring is available in so many gorgeous wood, tile, and stone patterns. You can use it anywhere in the house!

Sheet vinyl flooring is made by all the top manufacturers, and it is available in so many widths now. This flooring type is great for homes with kids and pets.

#4 –Shaw Floorte

Shaw Floorte flooring uses high-def patterns to recreate an authentic hardwood or tile look. Its locking system is precision-engineered for an easy and durable installation. Floorte luxury vinyl tile and planks combine the best features of vinyl and laminate. Its solid core creates dimensional stability and helps hide imperfections in the sub-floors like a laminate, but it vinyl based construction makes it completely waterproof!

Smart Squares from Engineered Floors

Engineered Floors just released the company’s new residential carpet tile brand called Smart Squares. Engineered Floors took the company’s most popular broadloom products and transformed them into 18 inches by 18 inches carpet tiles. The company uses a unique Peel n’ Stick installation system, which means the product can be installed on most sub-floors.

Every Smart Squares carpet tile uses Engineered Floors’ PureColor fiber system. PureColor carpet fiber is solution-dyed so the color will not fade, wear off, or stain. In addition, you do not need any additional pad under the tiles because each tile has an attached cushion backing. The attached polyurethane premium cushion will not crush or flatten out over time. The attached backing is called Kanga Hide.

The residential carpet tiles from Smart Squares are perfect for DIY installation because the pre-applied pressure sensitive adhesive makes for a no mess, no fuss flooring. Also, if you ever need to replace a tile, just prep the floor, peel, place, and press the tile into place.

In A Snap, Walk In the Park, Easy Street, and Piece of Cake are the residential carpets tile that we carry from the Smart Squares brand. Be sure to check them out!

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) serves as the purchasing arm for the U.S. government.

GSA requires that all flooring options purchased through the agency must meet sustainability requirements.

The GSA approves other types of flooring as well such as carpet padding, luxury vinyl tile, and sheet vinyl.

Interface Carpet

Stylish Designs of Carpet and LVT

Interface may manufacture carpet, but they sell design. As one of the most trusted names in commercial carpet tile, Interface has led the industry in design, sustainability, and high performance carpet tile. Carpet Express is excited to offer Interface Carpets to our customers. Call 800-922-5582 today!

Interface Carpet

Interface specializes in less is more. The company uses fewer resources and constantly strives to use more sustainable flooring solutions. The company introduced TacTiles, which are a glue-free installation system. TacTiles adheres carpet tiles to one another to create a “floating” floor, which provides better flexibility. The company also created Cool Carpet, which is their climate-neutral carpet tile program. This program zeros out all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the entire life cycle of the carpet tile. Interface also has Intersept, which is a powerful preservative that is safe and effective at protecting carpet tile from mold growth and odors. In addition, the company uses ART, their proprietary Appearance Retention Test that effectively stimulates years of soiling, wear, and routine maintenance to test the durability of their carpet tiles.

Interface focuses on a business model that is renewable, cyclical, and benign. The company focuses on new technologies and systems that reduce or eliminate waste and harmful emissions. They also increase the use of renewable materials and energy sources. The company’s Mission Zero promise is to eliminate any negative impact the company has on the environment by 2020.
