    Advantages of LVP/LVT Floors

    If you are looking to update the floors in your home, there are many things to consider. The look and feel of floors and how they will suit your overall home décor is often the first thing that people think about when shopping. However, longevity, activity level in your home, cleaning and installation processes are all aspects that should be taken into account when choosing the right flooring option.

    Some of us may assume a negative association with “luxury vinyl planks” (LVP) or “luxury vinyl tile” (LVT), but the outdated styles of the past are history. The LVP and LVT options of today are as aesthetically appealing as they are functional, making them an option that should not be overlooked.

    Benefits of Choosing LVP/LVT Floors in Your Home

    If you are in the market for new floors in Calgary, LVP or LVT floors may just be the ideal choice for you. Here are some of the benefits of this popular flooring category:

    • The Right Look: Don’t let the industrial styles of the past keep you from exploring the possibilities of LVT flooring. With upgraded designs and techniques, the look of various stone and wood floors are simulated, without the hefty price tag or laborious maintenance. With a variety of sizes, finishes, textures and looks, you get total control over the design of your floors. Whether you want a classic look or totally unique arrangement, you can have it with LVP/LVT floors.
    • Minimal Upkeep: These floors are resistant to scratches, stains, scuffs and dents. Plus, they resist moisture, meaning any spills or unexpected plumbing issues won’t end up becoming larger problems. They feature a protective top layer made of urethane or aluminum dioxide, which increases durability and ensures that even the most high-traffic areas of your home will be resistant to wear and tear.
    • Eco-friendly Results: You can feel good about your floors, knowing that they have a smaller environmental footprint compared to many other options. The durability they offer, even under warranty in many cases, means that you won’t have to replace them, cutting down on materials and energy in the future.

    If you are looking for long-lasting and beautiful floors for your Calgary home, consider LVP or LVT flooring from Nu-Way Floor Fashions Ltd.

    The Latest Trends in Carpet

    Keeping your home looking fresh, modern and on-trend will not only help increase its value, but more importantly, it will make you happy and comfortable in the space you live in. If you are trying to find an easy way to update the look and feel of your home, consider new carpet or flooring to elevate the look of any room.

    4 Flooring Trends in Carpeting

    If you are considering new carpet in your Calgary home, you will want to consider these new trends. Here are the latest and most popular carpeting options for homeowners:

    • Neutrals: Grey tones, beiges and taupe shades provide the perfect backdrop for the rest of your beautiful home. Without competing, these neutral carpet colours leave the rest of your furniture, paint, art or other design accents in your home with the opportunity to stand out.
    • Texture: Whether you choose a neutral shade or more daring colour option, textured carpets are becoming an increasingly popular way to add interest and depth to a room. They can also be easier to care for because, depending on the carpet style and texture, marks or stains are less noticeable.
    • Pattern: People are no longer shying away from carpets that make a statement. Simple geometric patterns, bold shapes and ornate patterns are making carpets a focal point of living spaces. It’s an easy way to make a big impact in a room. When chosen carefully, a patterned carpet can make other design elements look more cohesive.
    • Pet Resistant: Fashion and function don’t always coexist, but more and more companies are trying to offer technology that combines the right look for great interior design with the right performance for an active lifestyle and full family home. If you are a pet owner, this year you can rejoice over stain-resistant carpets that make pet hair, wear and tear less obvious.

    Oiled Wood Floors: The New Fashion Trend for Hardwood Flooring in Calgary

    Oil is popular for wood flooring because it brings out the natural beauty of the wood, especially more exotic species of wood. When wooden floors are treated with oil, their natural characteristics, colour and warmth are enhanced. However, one must keep in mind that oil does not necessarily offer protection against wear. Hence, it is a good idea to consider which rooms will be exposed to water / moisture and avoid installing oiled wood floors there.


    Choosing the Right Oil Finish for Your Hardwood Flooring

    Oil finishes do not contain the traditional stains and polyurethane finishes. This type of finish, however, does give you a protective coating against high foot traffic and a nice sheen. One of the biggest benefits of oiled floors is how rich your hardwood flooring will look. Over time, it acquires produces a patina that ages with the wood, so your floors never have a dull, worn out look like other surface finishes create.


    A Few Things to Consider in Your Calgary Home’s Decor

    Once you have your colour and sheen picked out, you will have to maintain the oil on your floor. This is done by dusting and caring for it following these steps:

    • Routinely remove dust and dirt before they scratch the surface
    • Keep water to a minimum and clean spills immediately
    • Sweep floors as often as they need it
    • Use cleaners specially formulated for oiled wood floors
    • Never use an all-purpose cleaner
    • To maintain and protect your floors, use a special oil product that refreshes and keeps them shiny
    • If you have an area with high risk for water spillage, apply a refresher to add a layer of protection
    • Reapply oil refreshers to your floors as needed, which will typically be a few times throughout the year

    If you are ready for a more natural, refined look, skip the urethane finishes and opt for oiled wooden floors. Nu-Way Floor Fashions Ltd. can help you find hardwood flooring in Calgary that is perfect for the oil finished look.

    Let the team at Nu-Way Floor Fashions Ltd. provide advice and guidance for flooring and window treatments in Calgary. We offer a range of beautiful natural woods and we can even install your new flooring for you. Contact us today or visit our showroom and take a look.

    How Can You Update Hardwood Floors?

    Hardwood floors may have an incredible lifespan, but that does not mean that they cannot be updated when they go out of style. In fact, hardwood flooring is one of the best flooring options if you want something that keeps and is still versatile.

    There are plenty of ways to dress up your outdated or worn hardwood floors; ranging from total overhauls to a few cosmetic pick-me-ups.

    Options for Updating Hardwood Floors

    If you are ready to change the look of your home and update your floors, you have a few ways to do this:

    • Full Replacement – If your floors are significantly old and show the kind of damage that requires a full overhaul, a total replacement may be the better choice. You need more than a 1/8-inch of wood to refinish, so if your floors have already been refinished multiple times, it is unlikely you have that much left. You can replace your floors with a large selection of woods, including thicker and more durable choices.
    • Refinish the Floors – If you have enough wood to use, you can refinish the surface; which is significantly less expensive than replacing the floors. When you refinish, you can take care of small dings, scratches and even change the colour of the wood by applying a new stain. Even better, you can apply a new top coat to give your floors a brand new sheen and give the appearance that they have been replaced.
    • White Wash – White washing is not just for paneling and walls anymore; in fact, it can be used on hardwood floors to brighten up the surface.
    • Painting – Painted floorboards is increasing in popularity. You can paint them a solid colour, add a design or create the illusion of a pattern. You will want to use a durable paint, such as a paving paint. Then, cover it with an acrylic urethane that is tinted.

    If your floors are ready to refinish or for a full replacement, you should purchase your new hardwood flooring in Calgary from a reputable supplier. Nu-Way Floor Fashions Ltd. offers a full suite of hardwood flooring products from the top manufacturers.
