The real deal is going away when it comes to hard surface flooring. I cleaned for the owner of our nicest flooring shop in town the other day. He asked me to stop by and check out his shop. it was a bit of an unsettling experience seeing all the non absorbance choices. An amazing assortment of LVP caught my eye.. https://shawfloors.com/flooring/vinyl/_/_/_/_/_/tile-and-plank The new PVC base/core LVP planks are now available up to 72" long. Other cool features include: It takes 35 planks to find a repeat, price is cheap, completely water proof, instillation can be performed by a YouTube trained husband with good knees and they look and feel amazing! Carpet will continue to go in bed rooms and and family rooms but for hard floor choices the home buying millennials wont be going ala' natural. Rug sales and cleaning should continue to grow and grow but the question is, will those rugs be hand tied wools or woven plastics? At least we wont have to worry about hacking them out in the home over those water proof planks.
