Three types of flooring that are trending

Three types of flooring that are trending

Advancing technology has improved the appearance and function of wood look planks and stone look tiles, so it's not surprising that both floor coverings are in vogue.

However, hardwood continues to be the material that most homeowners would choose for their dream home, and wood floors positively affect a home's marketability.

Avita Carpet & Flooring is a flooring store in Westland, Michigan that carries planks and tiles in the trendiest materials.


Solid hardwood planks are nailed to a wood subfloor in moisture-free home spaces, but if this does not suit your needs, engineered wood is sure to be a good fit.

Manufactured plank floors look like solid wood floors since a layer of hardwood is bonded to a plywood base.

In addition, the planks resist moisture and need no attachment to a subfloor since they are made for floating floor installation.

Luxury vinyl

When you choose luxury vinyl planks, your new floors resemble hardwood flooring, while tiles show off a wood or stone look.

The best brands are waterproof and textured with embossing techniques, so they feel as well as look like the natural materials they mimic.

Embossed in Register planks display texturing that is perfectly aligned with the wood grain pattern.


Like luxury vinyl flooring, laminate planks and tiles are composed of multiple layers. The fiberboard core layer keeps the floor warm underfoot, even on the coldest days.

In addition, water pools on the surface of standard laminate flooring where it is removed at once to avoid harm to the new floors, but waterproof brands can tolerate water for about one day without sustaining damage.
