Water Proof Flooring
Home Renovation: Water Proof Flooring TrendsCertain areas of a home are more prone to the odd spill and moisture build-up than others. With water proof flooring, you can have the peace of mind knowing that no long term damage is done to areas such as the kitchen, living room or bathroom.
Just because flooring has versatility, it does not mean that it can’t be stylish. The following looks at types of water proof flooring that can add more than just functionality to your home.
Vinyl Flooring with Luxe Plank: The trending vinyl products today give you the allure of hardwood or stone thanks to the new innovative Luxe Plank designs. This flooring can be used in any part of the house including kitchens, bathrooms, basements and more.
The different styles of the Luxe Plank flooring include empire bamboo, exotic fruitwood and Perucian walnut to name a few. They all provide 100% water proof technology and a commercial grade surface that can shrug off stains and scratches with ease. With FasTak (DIY friendly) and Rigid Core solutions, Luxe Plank can fit any home.
Traditional Tile Flooring: One of the most durable options for liquid-prone areas, tiles can accommodate all of your water proof flooring needs. With choices ranging from natural stone to ceramic tiles, it can fit a wide array of room designs.
Stone Flooring: The choices offered with stone flooring includes slate, granite, marble, travertine and limestone among others. After sealing the material, they are all water proof to a degree – absorption levels include semi-vitreous, non-vitreous, impervious and citreous.
Ceramic Flooring: Available in nearly every style, color and size, ceramic tiles are durable and water proof – not to mention easy to clean. Textured tiles are the most suitable for water-prone areas to provide secure footing.
Porcelain Flooring: Similar to ceramic tiles, porcelain is an extra-durable flooring option. It has the added advantage of closely resembling natural stone making it the preferred choice by many manufacturers, at a reduced cost.
Sturdy Wood Flooring: Also referred to as laminate hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood used in flooring is sturdy and water resistant due to the plywood base coupled with a hardwood veneer. A urethane is a must to ensure damage prevention.
