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.

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

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!

Top 5 Benefits of Sheet Vinyl Flooring

Versatile Installation

Sheet vinyl flooring comes in different widths and backing options, which makes installation more versatile for the home and office. Carpet Express has vinyl that is 6′, 12′, 13’2″, and 15′ wide. You can also purchase vinyl that has a felt back or a fiber back, and Carpet Express has a 15′ wide vinyl that can be loose laid on the floor. So you can install sheet vinyl with glue or use the loose lay options.

Pet Friendly

Sheet vinyl flooring is a great option for homes with pets. If your pet has a little accident on the sheet vinyl, then don’t worry. You can just clean up the mess and there will be no stain left.

Realistic Visuals

Thanks to new technology, sheet vinyl flooring now has realistic visuals of wood, stone, or tile. You can create any kind of design theme you want with these options.

Waterproof

Sheet vinyl is also a waterproof flooring option. You can install sheet vinyl in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, mudroom, or basement. You do not have to worry about water damage because the water will sit on top of the sheet vinyl until it can be cleaned.

Great for Residential and Commercial

Another great benefit of sheet vinyl is that you can use it in your home or your business. Sheet vinyl goes well in any room of the house, and there are so many commercial vinyl options that go great in any business or office.

These are just some of the benefits of sheet vinyl flooring. There are so many great patterns, colors, and design styles with sheet vinyl. Be sure to check out all of the sheet vinyl available from Carpet Express.
