The biggest flooring trends for 2019
Also known as Stone Polymer Composite (SPC), rigid vinyl planks continue to take the flooring sector by storm.
Different from Wood Plastic Composite, or WPC, which is commonly referred to as waterproof vinyl, the SPC core is more stable and harder. Rigid vinyl planks contain all the traditional advantages of luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring without the risk of telegraphing and offers optimized acoustic and waterproof benefits.
These planks are made up of 4 to 6 layers, with each layer bringing a distinct quality. The composite core layer, however, is what differentiates one rigid vinyl plank from another, so neither “less is more” nor “more is less” apply when it comes to the number of layers used. The rigid composite core means that sub-floor preparation is less of a nightmare because these tiles are much more forgiving
By virtue of its excellent stability and durability, rigid vinyl planks not only solve the solid wood flooring damp and mildew problem, they also give you all the benefits expected from a resilient product, such as being soft and warm underfoot, watertight, offering both indentation resistance and optimized acoustic benefits.
While flooring trends should always be top of mind when specifying floors, the type of flooring that you choose still needs to work with your client’s space, needs and interior design. So, SPC flooring will be the choice of more users.
As a SPC flooring exporter, My most real feeling is that there are more and more RFQs on the SPC flooring, and the number of exports is increasing. After experiencing the blue ocean, the SPC flooring has finally begun to flourish around the world.
