Selecting Vinyl Flooring
Resilient is the name given to products like linoleum, vinyl, rubber and other non-textile flooring because of the solid nature and its ability to flex or “give” a little when walked on. Resilient flooring has been around for a long time. Linoleum, the oldest type of resilient, has been in existence for over 150 years!
This type of flooring has advanced leaps and bounds, offering an endless array of colors and patterns. You can find styles like upscale ceramic, wood, and the intricate designs of stone and marble. Resilient comes in a full range of finishes which are embossed and printed with such precision that they look and feel like the real thing!
For protection, resilient flooring is being made with urethane including aluminum oxide particles which are the same tough topcoat used in wear layers now used for woods and laminate. This makes these new resilient floors easy to clean up and resistant to scratching.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
is at the high end of resilient flooring. It has superior performance and looks so authentic that it can be difficult to distinguish as a vinyl product. The high definition imaging and treated surface texture mimics its natural counterpart.
New designs in luxury tile include everything from contemporary colors, vivid brights, pearlized finishes and abstracts with soft patterns. Other looks are exotic and distressed woods, colored concretes and fossilized stone plus metallics and wide planks. They can even be installed with grout!
Luxury tile can perform better than wood and stone! Benefits include easier installation, never needs refinishing, will not warp due to excessive water, resists scratches, remains quieter to walk on, and is warm to the touch.
Hardwood is durable, beautiful, can be refinished for a new life, and is affordable. This popular flooring choice can range from sleek and modern to country cottage. Hardwood floors are a natural and beautiful way to improve your home. With so many wood species and stains to choose from, you can custom design your floor to your heart’s desire.

Where To Use Resilient?
Resilient can be installed just about anywhere, but especially in wet areas, children’s or handicapped rooms where an easy-to-walk-on surface is a must. Also, resilient flooring is great in niche areas like entryways, areas where you don’t want seams, and any place where you need an easy-to-clean floor.
