FLOORTÉ™: Luxury Vinyl Flooring Collection from Shaw

At Shaw, luxury vinyl flooring—which we often call resilient—is our forte. So we’re calling our latest collection Floorte™.

Floorte™ is a vinyl laminate made using high-definition printing to emulate a hardwood or tile surface. Shaw's engineered FOLD N GO™ locking system makes installation easy. Floorté™ floors are not only strong and durable, but their flexible design helps conceal imperfections in the floor beneath. The high-definition printing creates a highly authentic appearance, and the hardwood designs are created to match the top species and colors of hardwood.

“You can get the wood look without the high-maintenance, a product that hides imperfections in subfloors, and an easy click system,” says Natalie Cady, director of hard surface marketing. “The fact that it’s waterproof is just icing on the cake.”

Laminate Coreboard Technology

An Eco-Friendly Alternative

Known for being committed to the environment, Shaw Floors laminate options are an ideal choice for all of us who are environmentally conscious. Shaw laminates have a long life span. Replacement is something you won't even think about for many years to come.

Why Choose Laminate?

Since laminate is made to look like and even feel like hardwood, maybe you're wondering why you shouldn't just buy hardwood? Shaw floors has a great selection of hardwood floors. But, here are some reasons you may want laminate:

  1. As always, price may be a consideration. Laminate can be half the price of hardwoods. And the easier, quicker installation, can save you money, also.

  2. Even though hardwood is a “natural” product, laminate is much more durable than hardwood. It's not nearly as likely to scratch or split. It's much more resist moisture damage, and maintenance is a breeze. There's less wear and tear, and it's very resistant to spills and stains.

  3. Laminate is also versatile. Various wood grains, colors, tints and patterns are limited only by consumer demand.

Carpet Styles

Screen Shot 2013-05-20 at 5.51.32 PMWe’re breaking down some carpet styles so you can have as much information when it comes to choosing your flooring.  After all, you need to pick the carpet that’s right for you and your home.

  • Cable: This style is very comfortable underfoot and beautiful in a bedroom or living room.  However, keep in mind that this style is better suited for rooms without a lot of activity.
  • Cut and Looped: This style is also referred to as patterned carpet. Like looped styles, these carpets are low profile and thus perform well, however, sometimes their seams are visible.  They’re very fashionable today, used in casual and traditional rooms and are available in many patterns including fun geometrics and formal botanicals.  Their distinctive carved appearance and multiple colors do a good job of hiding stains and standing up to traffic.
  • Frieze: This style creates a textured surface with a knobby appearance, and a carpet of high durability and very good wear-ability.  These carpets are great performers in high-traffic areas and can go anywhere in your home. They also hide footprints and are available in various pile heights that create a variety of different looks.
  • Looped: A looped style carpet is often referred to as a berber. Looped carpets are very durable.  They’re ideal for casual, active family rooms and come in solid colors, berber fleck and patterns with varying levels of loops.  It hides traffic patterns well but be advised that this style may make seams more apparent and its backing is more visible on stairs.
  • Textured:  This style of carpet does a great job of hiding footprints and vacuum marks.  It creates a more casual atmosphere in the room.  Textured carpets are great for all areas in the home, they are ideal for today’s active families and are available in a broad range of prices.
  • Saxony:  This style has a smooth, soft, velvet plush look and a luxurious feel.  It makes the perfect solution for a master bedroom, dining room or a formal living room.  This style is not a good choice for high traffic areas or rooms with active kids. Also, be aware that this style does show footprints and vacuum marks.

We hope this information helps make your decision on which type of carpet style to choose for your lifestyle a little bit easier.  For more information on carpet or other flooring materials, please visit our website here.

There are many of us who are presently trying to move or buy new homes. Have you ever wondered and maybe asked, what’s the right flooring choice for your home? In order to answer this question, we tell you that there are a lot of choices out there in the flooring industry including; laminate, hardwood, cork, bamboo, rubber, carpet, vinyl, tile and carpet flooring. Are you dazed by the list? There’s absolutely no need to be because you can always seek the opinion of one of our flooring experts before deciding on which flooring to use for your home.

Making a choice of the type of flooring to use in your home is influenced by several factors which includes, but is not limited, to your budget, desire and need.  Do you need a designer home that has a touch of timeless classic to it? Then you will surely settle for the hardwood floors because they have come to stay as far as designer homes are concerned. In any case that you are a great lover of nature and the ‘green’ type of person, you will definitely want to look at cork and bamboo flooring since they are known to be environment friendly.

If, for example, you need warmth and comfort in your room and you ask an expert what’s the right flooring choice for your home? They might tell you that carpet works best as far as warmth is concerned. What if you are looking for flooring that is hard wearing, durable and beautiful at the same time? Laminate flooring might be the best option for you.

Giving Your Home an Old World Look

If you have traveled to other countries, you have had the opportunity to see homes, farms and castles that are many many years older than our country. The appeal comes from the sense of another time, with a patina to walls and floors that is impossible to reproduce with anything new.

Unless you’re one of those very wealthy people who can afford to purchase a castle or country home and have it taken apart and brought here to reconstruct, you cannot reproduce that look. However, there are things you can do to create the same old world mood.

To begin, choose a floor that suits the time. Stone provides the closest connection, particularly if you choose a stone with the rough cuts and color variation that comes with time.. Take a look at the stone of this home. The charm comes from the variations in color and texture. Remember this when you choose flooring and paint.

A number of retail outlets offer architectural pieces brought from other countries. Consider putting in a front door or fireplace surround from the past to make your home capture some of that old-world flavor.

The final touches come from lighting that allows daylight to filter in and warm a space, and spots of natural color such as the potted plants give this photo. Without the plants, this home would be dreary and discouraging. The bright red flowers and green leaves give it a warmth and a connection to today that makes this old-world place come to life.
