Style Watch: Waterproof Flooring
May 18, 2022
There is no one who understands the necessity of having a floor that can handle life’s toughest messes better than an active family with kids and pets. However, that’s not to say that other homeowners won’t appreciate the beauty of having a durable floor! Any space can benefit from a floor that stands the test of time and is resistant to mess, but a home that plays host to busy lifestyles and plenty of foot traffic is surely going to see those benefits firsthand. With so much time spent in our homes over the last few years, the advantages of durability have been made clear and certainly contributed to the rise in one of 2022’s biggest styles to watch: Waterproof Flooring.
This design trend truly speaks for itself, but in 2022 we’ve seen a sharp rise in the popularity of waterproof flooring, not only in traditional water-resistant flooring types, but even within industries like carpet and hardwood. If you’re looking for ways to keep your home looking its best for years to come, check out some of our favorite waterproof flooring products below.
1. Waterproof Hardwood Flooring
When it comes to flooring, hardwood is a classic, elegant choice that can elevate any space. While some traditional hardwoods are not always water-resistant, Aquadura H2O has created the perfect combination of classic white oak hardwood styling and advanced technology performance that is not only waterproof, but also kid and pet proof. Due to its waterproof sealant and core, the Lanes Prairie White Oak is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, basements or anywhere that there may be lots of traffic and potential for spills. This waterproof hardwood is available in seven different wood-tone hues, making it easy to find the perfect floor to match your style and space.
2. Waterproof Carpet
If carpet and waterproof are two words you’re surprised to see together, you clearly haven’t met the Rival & Strong Plus carpet from Rival by Resista. This plush and durable carpet is made with advanced, stain-and-crushing-resistant fibers that repel stains and dirt so you can enjoy easy cleanup. The backing is waterproof, which protects the cushion and subfloor underneath from water damage or otherwise undetected spills. Rival & Strong Plus carpet comes in 12 different hues, each just as stunning and durable as the last, making it easy to find the carpet you want in a colour that makes your design style pop.
3. Waterproof Laminate Flooring
If you’re looking for something a little more rustic in design, but still durable and waterproof, the Floorcraft Performance Flooring Juno Oak laminate is the perfect choice. On the surface, this incredibly realistic embossed wood pattern features deep graining and hand-scraped detailing, which gives it the appearance of a true, genuine oak. But unlike most natural wood, Juno Oak laminate flooring is waterproof, kid-proof and pet-proof, making it perfect for holding up to the demands of a full house. Offered in five different shades, this stunningly durable laminate floor will undoubtably supersede your expectations and keep your home looking brand new for years to come.
