Resilient, Strong Flooring

It?s the strong, silent type.?

It?s resilient. Literally.?

In terms of design, it?s incredibly versatile, offering the remarkable looks and textures of realistic wood grain, natural stone, carved tiles or vibrant geometrics.?
Resilient is a wide-ranging, generic word for flooring material that includes linoleum, vinyl, cork and rubber. As its name implies, resilient gently bounces back underfoot. ?And resilient can pamper your wallet as it pampers your feet. ?

Forget any preconceptions. ?This isn?t your grandparents? old-school, mid-century sheet flooring. ?Resilient today blends brilliant design with cutting-edge technology, bringing beauty and performance at affordable prices. ??

Today?s resilient comes in sheets (6 and 12-foot wide), tiles and even planks, offering custom possibilities to rival your imagination.

The latest designs offer contemporary motifs, which include stained concrete and metallics, along with classic, even antique looks like weathered stone, leather or hardwoods that are hand-scraped.?

As consumers become more sophisticated, layering and blending rather than blandly matching design elements, they look for visual features with authentic looks like slate, limestone, sisal and linen, or metallics like nickel, copper and steel, or woods with colors and grains ranging from hickory and oak to exotic wenge and bamboo.?

A trend today is mixing flooring materials; with resilient flooring mixing materials can now be affordable. ?Whatever looks you like, wood, metal, tile or even stone, using resilient flooring as a boarder or a medallion can now be integrated into your flooring design.

Patterned resilient tiles can be made into unique designs for a memorable entryway, bathroom or kitchen. ?And resilient offers a host of realistic grout options?thick or thin or butt joints to further personalize your installation. Similarly, the contemporary design movement toward blending gloss and opalexcence with classic looks can be easily and affordably achieved with resilient. ?

Because resilient is easy to install, it is generally less costly, especially if you choose to do it yourself. ?Prep work is minimal ? often nonexistent ? since resilient flooring can be applied over a variety of surfaces, including concrete and plywood subfloors. If the area surface is sound and flat, it can even be applied directly over existing floors, including wood and linoleum. ?

Many resilient floors are also environmentally friendly. ?For highly allergic people, resilients are recommended because they are antimicrobial and lend themselves to regular, easy cleaning. ?Because they are antistatic, resilients are a great choice for protecting your electronics. ?In addition, resilient flooring remains the preferred flooring where moisture is a concern. ?

Resilient floors are as tough as they are attractive, more durable (gouge, fade, stain and scuff resistant) than ever, some with warrantees up to 20 years.?

Tough and tasteful. ?Practical and elegant. ?Resilient is ready, willing and able to play a supporting role or take the lead in any floor design you can envision. ?
