How to select the right flooring for you home?
Selecting the right flooring for your home can be a tough decision. Flooring sets the tone for the rest of the room and not only has to meet your interior style preferences but also be suitable for your lifestyle. There are so many different types of flooring to choose from with all of them touting different features and benefits. Before making a flooring purchase, you should ask yourself some basic questions to determine what features are important to you.
What room(s) in your home is the flooring going to be installed in?
Do you have pets and/or children?
How much can you spend on flooring and installation costs?
Do you prefer a floor that has low maintenance requirements?
Your answers to these questions can help guide you in selecting the right flooring for your home.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, one flooring category to consider is rigid vinyl.
Dimensional stability is very important in flooring as it determines how much your floor will “move” after it is installed. Flooring products that are less dimensionally stable may experience shrinkage and/or swelling due to external temperature changes and the amount of moisture that occurs when the humidity fluctuates in the room. This type of change in your flooring can be visually unappealing. The rigid core enhances the floor’s ability to maintain its dimensional stability despite temperature and humidity fluctuations in the room.
Dimensional stability isn’t the only benefit of rigid core vinyl flooring. This type of flooring is typically made up of multiple layers that all work together to enhance the floor’s performance. Most rigid core vinyl products are made up of 4 basic layers: a wear layer, a vinyl print layer, a rigid core layer, and a backing layer. The wear layer is very important as it protects the vinyl print layer and adds resistance against stains, scratches, and everyday foot traffic. The rigid core layer adds dimensional stability but also plays a role in the underfoot comfort and sound absorption of the flooring. The backing layer helps secure your new floor to the subfloor, as well as adds some underfoot cushioning and sound dampening performance.
