“There’s a lot going on out there”, said Joe Kboudi about the current status of the flooring industry. Joe is with Smithco Flooring and his company provides any and all types of flooring solutions. Waterproof vinyl flooring is becoming very popular and is replacing laminates in the wood look arena. It is difficult to dent or crack and will not expand or shrink from exposure to water. It is also about one-third the price of solid wood flooring. The distressed look for wood is still popular and the high gloss look is not. When it comes to carpet, the flatter carpet look is becoming more popular.
