SheetVinylRS-150x150Vinyl Flooring is more beautiful and stronger than ever before with a variety of new patterns to choose from. It imitates the aesthetics of both stone and ceramic flooring but without the hardness, coldness and is the least expensive option.

Wood has always been a favorite “natural” selection for homes throughout the years – not to mention it also increases the value of any home.  There are thousands of styles and stains of wood floors, with options of width ranging from 21/2 inch to 7 inch wide planks.  Styling includes traditional oaks to the new hand-scraped and restoration looks.  There is certainly a look for every taste.

Laminate is still a popular choice for hard surface flooring in the home and newer styles continue to look even more like real wood.  The beauty of laminate is its easy maintenance.  It is more scratch resistant than wood, as well as being more inexpensive.  If there are large dogs and small children in the household, laminate tends to be a friendlier option.

Even though it is a little more expensive than sheet vinyl, it is less so than stone/ceramic.
