Decorating for the holidays? Don’t forget the floor, says SMART Carpet and Flooring, the tri-state area’s original shop-at-home flooring leader. And to help homeowners choose flooring that performs well and looks great in high-traffic areas this holiday season, SMART Carpet and Flooring has released its short list of flooring choices that are always nice and never naughty.
First up: An endlessly forgiving resilient, or vinyl, tile flooring. Virtually impervious to wear and tear from pets, spills, dropped objects, stains, or just about anything else a houseful of friends and family can throw at it, resilient tile flooring looks vastly different — and much more beautiful — than the vinyl flooring of years past.
For an example of an attractive resilient flooring choice, SMART Carpet and Flooring points to a product like Congoleum’s DuraCeramic. Designed as a luxury alternative to ceramic tile, DuraCeramic has the appearance of a custom tile floor with the ease of vinyl. It even contains Scotchgard Protector for added peace of mind.
Homeowners who prefer the look of stone but want the warmth and durability of vinyl might prefer Armstrong Alterna or Alterna Reserve Luxury Vinyl. Nearly indistinguishable from real stone, Armstrong Alterna and Alterna Reserve feature stain-resistant surfaces and absorb sound to keep the focus on the conversation, not the clatter of the floor — even during lively holiday parties.
Next on the list: A luxury vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl plank flooring looks like real hardwood but offers the same stain resistance, warmth and noise dampening as its resilient tile flooring cousin.
Finally, for homeowners who love the look and feel of carpet, SMART Carpet and Flooring recommends a highly stain-resistant carpet that’s up to the task of hosting holiday dinners, extended family, and anything else the holiday season can throw at it. Homeowners in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York will find a variety of carpet options that fit the bill in every SMART Carpet and Flooring mobile showroom.
“Homeowners typically host more family and friends during the holidays than at any other time of year,” said SMART Carpet and Flooring President Brendan Phillips. “It’s important to be ready for extra wear and tear. SMART Carpet and Flooring’s mobile showrooms stand ready to bring the perfect flooring choices to homeowners in time for the holiday entertaining season.”
To make it even easier for homeowners to spruce up their homes this month, SMART Carpet and Flooring is holding its annual December sales event. From now until Dec. 15, SMART Carpet and Flooring is offering up to 50 percent off typical store prices, plus an offer to take an additional 10 percent off every carpet they sell.
Flooring even makes a thoughtful gift. SMART Carpet and Flooring gift cards give loved ones the gift of choosing from more than 4,000 carpet, vinyl, wood, laminate, and tile flooring choices right in the comfort of their own homes, with the guidance of a flooring expert.
