Do you feel like the flooring options for your home have gotten confusing? There are so many different flooring types now that keeping up with everythingthat claims with most modern & suitable option. Most people don't shop for new flooring that often, so when you do begin to look at options, you might feel a little out of your league. One type of flooring we hope to explain in this article is the SPC Vinyl Flooring.

In addition to carpet, hardwood and laminate, vinyl is a popular choice for the floors of your home or business. Vinyl itself comes in several forms. There is sheet vinyl, which is glued directly to the subfloor. Sheet vinyl has come a long way with realistic tile, wood and stone looks. The other option for vinyl is called stone composite flooring, which comes in either tiles or planks.

Stone plastic composite flooring offers the look of wood planks in various species and colors. Surface textures can even include scraping or embossing to heighten the realism.

Whether you choose SPC, LVT or LVP, you will get a resilient flooring, know for its warmth and comfort underfoot. It's real claim to fame though is its resistance to moisture, making it the best option for a bathroom or kitchen. It's also much less expensive than real ceramic or wood.

The surface of High quality spc flooring has a special transparent wear layer, so this type of flooring has strong wear resistance and impact resistance, not easy to damage, and at the same time has a good waterproof function.

SPC Flooring has below advantages:

1.100% waterproof & environmental protected.It can be soaked into water for years(zero expansion)

2.Abrasion resistance,anti-skidding(nonskid when being wet)

3.Easy to clean(washed by water or detergent)

4.Easy to install (click system over 4 sides,without using keels,nails,glues,special kits or installation skills)

5.Good feeling (warmer than ceramic tiles)

So, maybe you've decided stone composite flooring is the way to go for your new bathroom install, now all you need to do is decide on the style and color, right? Not quite, there are still many more things to consider and this is where it can get confusing.

First, you can choose how you want to install the stone polymer composite flooring. There are still some that you can glue down, while other options include floating click and loose lay. With floating click, the planks or tiles click together forming a water-tight seal. Loose lay flooring allows you to simply lay each piece down to cover the floor. This type of flooring is simple to repair since you can easily remove one piece in the middle of the room and replace it.

You will also have choices on the thickness of the tile or planks. The core of the plank may have extra IXPE underlay to dampen sound and provide more comfort under foot. Other types may be more rigid, allowing them to hold up better under heavy foot traffic.

There are some other acronyms used to describe the core of luxury vinyl: SPC flooring & WPC. Depending on the manufacturer, these stand for different things. For example, WPC can stand for Wood Plastic Composite, Waterproof Polymer Core or Wood Polymer Core. Likewise, SPC flooring can stand for Stone Polymer Composite flooring, stone composite flooring, Solid Polymer Core flooring and other variations. So, you can see where the confusion might set in!

Generally speaking, WPC floor is mainly used outdoors, and a small amount will be used indoors, which is also different from the other three;

While SPC flooring is suitable for families, hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals and other places.
