What to Know About Resilient Flooring

Flooring is an investment and an important element in every room design. Resilient Flooring is something that I’m seeing more and more of lately in homes (including new construction homes) and I wanted to share what I personally like about it, + a few reasons to keep it in mind for your next project. I’ll also be answering a few FAQ’s ~

We have resilient flooring in our basement guest room (which you may remember this makeover from last year). This room is currently in the process of becoming my home office, which is where I also store small furniture and decor items for my clients. I am constantly moving things around in this space and I love that I don’t have to worry about the floors getting scratched up with our resilient floors!

What is Resilient Flooring?

Resilient Flooring is a category, just like hardwood. It covers types of flooring that are “resilient” meaning they have some “give” or flexibility, but are still solid non-fabric surfaces. It is engineered to provide sustainability, comfort, and durability.

What makes Resilient Flooring a good choice?

Resilient flooring is a good choice since it’s made to stand up to everyday life. As a mom, one of the reasons I love resilient flooring is for its long-term durability and that it is crafted to promote a healthy environment. Resilient flooring comes certified by third parties to promote good indoor air quality. There are a variety of styles and price points so it can be a more affordable option for your space as well.

What are the Common Types of Resilient Flooring?

One of the most popular types of resilient flooring is one you may be familiar with called Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring (or LVP for short). This is used often because it looks like real hardwood floors. Other common types of resilient floors are cork and rubber flooring.

What areas in my home would be best for Resilient Flooring?

You can use resilient flooring in any indoor space. It’s common for this type of flooring to be used in basements, bathrooms, mud, and laundry rooms since there are waterproof options. However, because of its durability and variety of beautiful styles nowadays, I see it used throughout all home areas, including main living spaces and kitchens.

Is it sustainable?

Yes, it is! Resilient Flooring is made with the planet in mind by operating responsibly, reducing waste and conserving natural resources. You can find out more details on sustainability & certified Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s) on Beautifully Responsible® Resilient Flooring.

How do I clean Resilient Flooring?

Sweep your floor regularly and for deeper cleaning, use a mop plus a nonabrasive, all-purpose pH-neutral cleaner. Avoid abrasive cleaners and harsh cleaning solutions on resilient floors.

How and where do you purchase Resilient Flooring?

    If used in a basement bedroom or family room is the floor going to feel cold?

      Hi Bob! Thank you for your question. Our basement bedroom is heated so as long as the heat is turned on, the floors do not feel cold. Hope this helps!
