Hot Flooring Options to Look Out For

Customers  visiting   the   showroom will find  samples  of all the latest  styles and  trends  in  flooring.  Here  are  some of  the   hot   flooring   options   available at Classic Wood  Flooring Carpet  & Tile Design Center:

LUXURY  RESILIENT  VINYL FLOORS: Wait…isn’t luxury vinyl an oxymoron? No, this is nothing like your grandfather’s vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) comes in tile or plank form, not the old sheets. New technology  allows LVT to  authentically mimic the look and texture of real wood or stone flooring. LVT is also a waterproof laminate so there is no worrying over the spilled mUk that used to cause your floors to pucker and warp.

HIGH DEFINITION PORCELAIN TILE:  For those who love the look and elegance   of   natural   stone   floors   but not  the  price,  there  is  high  definition  porcelain  tile.   HDP..  utilizes  the  most technically  advanced  glazing and digital printing system in the industry today to create  the  most  realistic image  possible on tile. Perfected by Italian designers, the process allows for a production pattern that is not repeated for 180′ or more. So, have it all with  the  high-end look,  low cost and low maintenance of HDP.

CARPET:    Living with  carpet  and  the worry  of  staining  it  with  spilled  wine, juices, coffee, tea or even caustic cleaners is finally gone. Using the most advanced fiber innovation,  SmartStrand•  Forever  Clean carpets offer the  highest level of beauty, comfort  and  performance  now available. Stain resistance is not simply sprayed on. It is literally woven into each fiber with Dupont’s  new  Nanolocspill  protection technology.  The SmartStrand SUk luxury carpet packs more than 700 silk-like fibers into one yarn for an amazing softness and incredible durability.

‘We     installed    white    SmartStrand carpet in a customer’s bedroom;’ says Don Herndon.   “Eighteen  months  later,  that white carpet still looked brand new.’

The demand for ceramic or porcelain wood tile has growth for other reasons as well:

 

Availability:  Customers can the distressed or reclaimed wood look that is not always available or affordable in real wood.

 

Durability:  It is more durable and low maintenance than real wood…no chips, nicks, scratches or moisture stains.

 

Water Resistance:  While water is a mortal enemy of real wood, ceramic and especially porcelain wood tile will not swell or warp from moisture.  Many porcelain wood glazed tile can be used in all kinds of climates, thanks to a frost-proof, low water absorption rating.

 

Versatility:  Ceramic or porcelain wood tile is great in kitchens and bathrooms for reasons listed above.  Some can even be used for outdoor use like on a patio or around a pool.

 

Creativity:  There are some very unique patterns and colors available that will transfer a room into a one-of-a-kind work of art.  The wood tile works beautifully with other kinds of tile and is great to use on and even countertop surfaces for long-lasting endurance in residences and commercial spaces.

 

Healthy:   Porcelain wood glazed tile from some manufacturers are even certified for good indoor air quality; officially certified by Greenguard as a low-emitting product for healthy spaces.

Travertine Tile and Its Timeless Natural Beauty

 

Classic Wood Flooring’s recognized retail success, building through the recession and into the recent economic upswing, has also allowed them to remodel their 6,000-square­ foot showroom to showcase more carpet, tile and wood selections. This includes currently popular flooring choices such as travertine tile and wire brushed wood.

Classic Wood  Flooring offers stunning travertine flooring. It is used  throughout the world as a floor or wall covering and will always be in style. A common practice is to install travertine tile in the main living areas of a home.

Travertine has a timeless natural beauty that can be filled, unfilled, honed or polished, chiseled or gauged. Honed stone simply means that the surface of the stone, has been ground to a smooth, flat, consistent surface. It also means, in the case of normally shiny stones such as granite or marble, that the polish or shine has been removed leaving a matte (unpolished) surface. Honed  will  typically have a topical seal. Gauged means that each tile is an identical thickness.

Travertine has characteristic pits that can be filled or unfilled depending on the desired look  And chiseled travertine tile imported from Spain provides an old world look that brings an added touch of elegance without compromising strength and ease of care.

Wood flooring is a popular choice for home offices  and dens adding richness and warm to the rooms. Wire-brushed wood floors are hardwood floors with planks that have been brushed with hard wire brushes.These hard wire brushes scrape all of the soft summer growth wood off of the top of the floor planks, leaving only the hardest winter wood and exposing more of the wood’s fine, rich grain and character.

Wire-brushed floors are less likely to show chips, scratches and scrapes. They are harder than normal hardwood floors so they are also less likely to scratch and wear in the first place.

Fine flooring like travertine or  wired­ bushed wood is an investment that holds value only if properly installed to last for years and years. Classic Wood Flooring is a recognized master installer of fine floors. To make sure the flooring surface in a customer’s home is perfectly level, their craftsmen “shoot” the home with lasers to find the highest floor level. They then use cement (mud) to level the floors to that point. Some homes have a 3″ various or more. One particular home required 28 tons of cement and sand to level the floors.

“I can trust floors installed by Classic Wood Flooring to be exceptional in every detail”  says Cathi  Lane,  Lead  Interior Designer  at  Christopher  Burton   Luxury Homes. “From flooring inlays to integrated transitions, they meet every challenge I can throw them with perfection”
