When you think about today’s flooring choices and what’s best for your home, there are tons of options available. But one thing that most of us can agree on – top technology and features are an excellent addition to any flooring product. Rather than spending time cleaning up tough messes, flooring that features easy cleanup, low-maintenance, and increased durability will surely reign supreme over flooring options that offer fewer features. Plus, with so many gorgeous flooring products available that have both stunning visuals and impressive features, there’s no reason not to opt for high-performing flooring that wows in every sense.
To help you get inspired for your next flooring project, we’ve pulled together a few of our favorite performance floors that prove they’re worthy of even the busiest, messiest homes thanks to their features. And, their appearance doesn’t disappoint either!
With so many hard-surface flooring styles on the market today, it’s usually the first thing that most people think about when considering easy cleanup and maintenance. However, with changing technologies, new features have emerged and helped to make carpet more durable and low-maintenance than ever. Gone are the days where carpet and cleanup simply don’t mesh.
One of our favorite products, featured in the Trending 10, proves that you can get both beauty and functionality. Sweetheart Plus in midnight by Innovia Touch Xtreme Clean™ not only has a soft, silky feel, but also looks amazing in bedrooms, living rooms, hallways, and playrooms. Its unique color makes a statement, but is still incredibly timeless for nearly any design style. Plus, with specially engineered fibers, you won’t have to worry about put hair or dander, since this carpet is automatically designed to repel spills and soiling. These high-quality fibers also provide enduring performance that will last the test of time, children, and pets alike!
Hardwood is one type of flooring that has been around for as long as many can remember. It was originally used to help reinforce the structure of homes, but today, its use as flooring is primarily for looks and permanency. While there’s no denying that hardwood floors are charming, elegant, and classy, there are usually some drawbacks. For example, most hardwood floors should not be installed where water is present, like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. However, today, Hydrotek has made it possible to enjoy the natural wood flooring you love combined with waterproof features, so you don’t have to worry!
Anchor Wharf in desert sand by Hydrotek™ is a beautiful addition to any home. Its wide planks lend to timeless style and lengthen the look of any room. But, not only does this hardwood floor have all the looks you could desire, it’s also waterproof, pet proof, and scratch resistant. So, if your heart is set on hardwood, consider this product – you won’t be disappointed!
Tile is arguably one of the most durable, flooring products on the market. Not only is it long-lasting, it’s not likely to crack or chip once installed. Whether you have kids, pets, messy guests, or you’re a bit clumsy, there’s not a lot to worry about with tile. It is also easy to clean, as both liquids and solids can quickly be wiped or picked up with a cloth. Plus, to keep it looking polished and clean, you won’t have to worry about a strict cleaning regimen.
We love Bel Terra’s™ Concrete Look tile in power grey. Not only is it sophisticated, classy, and modern, but it’s large size makes it a trendy addition to today’s homes. This concrete look tile can be installed in a variety of areas of your home, so if you’re looking to carry one type of flooring throughout your home, it could be the perfect choice.
One type of flooring that is continuing to gain traction and attention is laminate. Because laminate is usually water-resistant or waterproof, it’s a great option for family homes where accidents are prone, or for rooms where there are more likely to be spills like kitchens, dining rooms, or playrooms. Additionally, as a hard-surface flooring product, laminate provides quick and easy cleanup and low maintenance, and protects homes from excessive dirt and grime that may otherwise be difficult to remove. Not only can you count on laminate for its amazing ability to keep up with life’s daily messes, but you can also find laminate in wood look styles that add character and charm to a space. Many laminate styles today are so realistic that it is difficult to discern the difference between laminate and hardwood.
For a floor that is just as stunning as it is functional, check out Enchanted Lake in the color creamy by Mirror Lake™. This truly special performance flooring makes choosing a product quick and easy, thanks to its vast number of practical features and wood appearance. The light color is perfect for layering wood tones, metals, and linens in a unique design style, and its durability no match for your toughest days.
