I have spent hours of my life agonizing over the one question that plagues all women who find themselves in the predicament of having to choose between what she wants and what she needs. Ladies, you know this question well; Style?…..or Substance? How many times have we found ourselves standing almost paralyzed in the shoe department holding that coveted Jimmy Choo slingback in one hand, and the “sensible flat” in the other? Style says “Take that Jimmy Choo to the register and don’t look back!”, but on your way to the register, Substance creeps in and says “Think of your feet. You know the sensible flat is more comfortable.” And there you are, in a shoe-catch 22….This same scenario is experienced in so many areas of our daily lives. We play the roles of mother, daughter, wife, friend, employee, chef, maid, and so on and it can be difficult at times to find that balance between, you guessed it, Style and Substance.

Fortunately, when it comes to decorating your home, you no longer have to choose between what you want and what you need. The solution is Vinyl and SPC (Stone Plastic Composite) Flooring. Both of these flooring options are 100% waterproof and offer many different colors, textures, and style options. This means your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room are no longer limited to tile

flooring. While tile flooring is certainly a viable and affordable option, installation is often expensive and time consuming. Tile has to be laid on the actual subfloor which can add hours of tedious removal and haul-away to your project. Additionally, tile installation requires the grouting process which can be messy and will once again extend your installation time. Vinyl and SPC can be installed with what is known as a “floating installation” which can be placed upon most existing floors with a 100% waterproof underlayment layer between.  The only additional work required is the removal and reinstallation of your baseboards. The floating installation method cuts down installation time by at least half in comparison to tile making Vinyl and SPC a clean, efficient, and cost-effective flooring choice. Vinyl and SPC are not limited to the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. You can choose a style option that you love and have it installed throughout your entire home for a seamless look in every room.

So next time you find yourself in the middle of the shoe department asking that age-old question, I say take that Jimmy Choo shoe right up to the register and bring the sensible flat too. You deserve it!
