Luxurious and durable vinyl in Easthampton, MA
Vinyl is quickly becoming one of the most popular flooring solutions because of its versatility, affordability, and durability.

Types of vinyl
Luxury Vinyl Tile
This is a variation that is designed to mimic the look of stone or ceramic tiles. They can be installed using grout to perfectly imitate pricier materials.
Luxury Vinyl Plank
This variation mimics authentic hardwood without the included price tag and maintenance. You'll enjoy its easy upkeep and versatility.
With sheet vinyl, a single cushioned sheet of vinyl is adhered to the subfloor beneath. It's more budget-friendly than LVT and LVP, but it's not quite as authentic in appearance.
When it comes to benefits, vinyl flooring is nearly unmatched. It's waterproof and stain-resistant, making it perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. Additionally, it's comfortable to walk on, and it retains heat well during colder months.
Vinyl is incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of different ways to create any look you can imagine. It is also much more affordable when compared to hardwood or stone, and it withstands heavy foot traffic without wearing down.
What is "resilient" flooring?
The term “resilient” is often used to refer to vinyl, even by flooring professionals. However, the two terms are not completely synonymous. Resilient is a catch-all term that refers to several types of flooring including vinyl, cork, rubber and linoleum. All of these materials offer some give or bounce, which is what makes them resilient. Typically, these types of floors are durable, flexible, and inexpensive.
Have questions about vinyl flooring? Here are some frequently asked questions from our customers!

Linoleum is a natural product made from linseed oil while vinyl is synthetic. Because of this linoleum is often considered more eco-friendly. Both are available in sheet or tile forms and are considered resilient flooring.
These acronyms actually refer to the same thing—just in different forms. Both are luxury vinyl products. LVT stands for luxury vinyl tile, made to look and feel like ceramic or stone tile flooring. LVP stands for luxury vinyl plank, made to look and feel like natural hardwood.
