Why choose vinyl?
Vinyl flooring has been around for generations. But today’s vinyl isn’t the faux flooring of yesteryear. Modern options are unique and trendy with finishes that closely resemble wood, tile and even stone. Cutting-edge technologies and digital designs make natural-looking textures and greater visual depth possible.
Since vinyl replicates hardwood or tile, you can use it in so many ways throughout your home. From high-moisture spaces like bathrooms, to cozy family rooms where you want the look of hardwood.
Today’s vinyl is available in sheets or as luxury vinyl tile. And whichever application works in your space, you’ll love the comfort it provides. Step across a vinyl floor in your stocking feet, and you’ll notice a more pliable feel to this surface that is relaxed and foot-friendly.

A long-time favorite in bathrooms, tile is just as suitable in kitchens for its ability to resist spills. And you can lend other living spaces throughout your home a touch of style, ranging from contemporary to traditional.
No matter what your architectural style, there’s a tile solution to bring your vision to life. And tile isn’t merely a trendy choice, either. It’s been admired flooring for years and will continue to be a great way to bring lasting beauty and value to your home.
Tile is modular, which allows you to be creative in how you assemble your floor. You can put large tiles together for an expansive look. Set them at angles to grow small spaces, or use insets for a custom look.
