Today’s “resilients” feature a wider range not only of colors and textures, but also of designs and formats. Compare resilient with other hard flooring surfaces and you’ll discover that it’s got a new personality and a new fashion look. Resilient flooring is turning up in new places with a new generation of rubber, laminate, linoleum, vinyl and polymer products.
Manufacturers advertise durability, hygiene, easy maintenance and new aesthetic options as reasons resilient flooring is worth a look. Hospitals, schools, grocery stores and discount stores have been among the first to capitalize on expanded color palette offered by resilient flooring makers. These floor covering options are also turning up in office buildings, hotels, entertainment venues, restaurants and in now residential homes.
The new colors and textures allow designers to use the floor to create way-finding systems or create cohesiveness or transition among various spaces.
