Congratulations on your purchase of that beautiful new rug. No doubt it required some homework and adventure to find just the right one to tie your room together. Now that it’s arrived to your home, there are a few important steps to make sure you lay out your rug properly so that it frames your décor exactly as you planned.
Linoleum flooring and vinyl flooring often get mistaken for each other by homeowners who are searching for sheet flooring that will look good for the long haul. Both floor types are indeed tough and long-lasting, and can be installed pretty much anywhere. But there are some important differences between the two.
Choosing a floor may seem a bit daunting, especially if you've never done it before. Whether you're a newbie or a pro, understanding more will prepare you to choose the very best floor for your lifestyle, space, and budget.
Vinyl planks are taking over the flooring industry, and for good reason! As technology advances, so does the way the flooring we install in our homes is engineered. If you’re weighing the pros and cons of both options, here are 7 reasons why vinyl plank is a better choice than ceramic tile:
When it comes to waterproof flooring, vinyl plank floors are the most popular choice on the market today. Waterproof vinyl planks are available in a variety of colors, styles, and formats, making it easy for homeowners to incorporate this type of flooring into their home. You can find styles that mimic stone, tile, hardwood, marble or concrete flooring, providing you the appearance of a high-style flooring with the durability and added benefit of being waterproof.
Homeowners who desire hardwood floors know that sometimes real wood just isn't a practical choice. Now rooms that are prone to spills and wet messes can still have the look of wood (plus the exceptional performance of a luxury vinyl tile) with Mannington’s new ADURA®MaxAPEX--floors that mix authenticity with durability and ease of care in innovative ways.
