New flooring is a great way to make any space feel fresh and modern. The right flooring can brighten and lighten the darkest office. What kind of flooring should you choose? Ceramic tile? Carpeting? Laminate? Your clients deserve flooring that is beautifully sophisticated and durable as well as affordable.
The answer? Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) or stone plastic composite (SPC) flooring! These two vinyl-based flooring choices are available in a variety of colors and textures, including those that look like natural stone or wood. Both options can be installed over plywood, cement or other existing flooring. That’s why they are the top flooring trends in America today, with no signs of slowing!
Although both products are durable, long-lasting, beautiful and affordable, they do have different features and benefits.
Luxury vinyl tile is a quiet flooring, ideal in homes and offices. Because it is not as rigid as SPC, it may feel softer underfoot, which many people love, and may also reveal any imperfections in the underfloor. It is 100% waterproof and easy to clean, as well as being resistant to scratches and impacts. It’s also naturally antibacterial, making it a great choice for offices with people coming and going all the time.
Stone plastic composite is a vinyl base but has ground limestone mixed in it. The limestone makes the flooring more rigid. It clicks and drops into place easily without glue, making it very DIY friendly and perfect for remodels – no industrial fumes to limit use of the space. SPC, also known as luxury vinyl planking or LVP, is also waterproof, easy to maintain and has natural antibacterial properties. Because of its extra rigidity, SPC is more dent resistant than LVT, making it better for spaces with lots of foot traffic or heavy furnishings.
While the glue and softer nature of luxury vinyl tile help dampen sound, SPC flooring may require an underlayment to help with acoustics, especially if it’s being laid directly over concrete.
