Cork Flooringcork flooring paramus

Cork flooring has been growing in popularity over the years as an eco-friendly, unique flooring choice. Cork is derived from a readily renewable resource, it is biodegradable, and its ability to insulate can help homeowners cut back on electricity use. Aside from being so earth-friendly, cork has a number of other great qualities that make it a wonderful candidate for your new flooring!

Thanks to its porous cellular structure, cork is very comfortable underfoot. It is a good choice for rooms where you spend a lot of time standing, like the kitchen or office. Its smooth, anti-static surface is easy to clean and is even hypoallergenic. This makes cork a comfortable alternative to carpet for homeowners with allergies or asthma. Cork’s unique appearance and earthy tones make it a great option for renewing your home for the coming year.

Wood-Look Tile

If your goal for the new year is to increase efficiency, consider going with wood-look tile for new flooring. Wood-look tile is made of ceramic or porcelain, but it is created to look just like real hardwood planks. What makes this tile preferable to some homeowners over real hardwood is its durability and easy maintenance.

Wood-look tile requires much less maintenance than hardwood, saving you time and money on special wood cleaners and professional refinishing. Unlike hardwood, wood tile is not susceptible to water damage and it is very difficult to scratch. No matter how rambunctious your kids or pets are, you won’t have to worry about damaging a wood-look tile floor.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl is an upgraded version of the classic sheet vinyl. Luxury vinyl comes in stone-look tiles or wood-look planks that look strikingly similar to the real thing. This flooring was incredibly popular amongst homeowners in 2017, and it won’t be going out of style any time soon.

We love luxury vinyl because it is easy to install, easy to maintain, affordable, and durable. It’s tough to find all of these qualities and more in such a good-looking floor! This is the ideal choice for a homeowner looking for something new yet practical. Since luxury vinyl can be installed over most existing floors, this will be an easy project to take on, even during the busy holiday season.
