If you already know and love luxury vinyl tile, we have another flooring option to tell you about: engineered stone tile. This unique product is one of the newest innovations in flooring. It combines the versatility and comfort of vinyl with the durability of natural stone.
Could engineered stone be the flooring solution your Vancouver home needs? Let the Floor Coverings International Northshore experts help you decide with these tips.
All About Engineered Stone
Engineered stone flooring is made primarily of limestone, which gives it strength and durability. However, the addition of vinyl makes the stone more comfortable to stand and walk on. It also allows engineered stone tile to mimic a wide variety of materials, from wood to metal to stone.
As you might guess, this unique combination comes with a number of advantages. Here are some of our top reasons to consider engineered stone flooring for your home:
- You can choose from engineered stone that looks like marble, slate, wood, concrete, and more. You can even grout your engineered stone tile if you want. The options are endless, meaning that you can achieve exactly the look you want.
- Engineered stone is resistant to dirt, stains, water, and more, so it’s safe to use in nearly any area of your home – kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, entryways, basements, and more.
- Have you considered stone tile for your home, only to conclude that it was too cold, hard, and uncomfortable? Engineered stone is different. It maintains a more moderate temperature, and it is more flexible and cushioned (similar to luxury vinyl flooring).
