Redecorating Made Easy with Tarkett Flooring

Posted on Jun 20 2014 - 12:45pm by Susan Bewley

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tarkett NA for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

While I love to play around with different designs and artwork in my home, I am design challenged when it comes to picking paint for my walls, and flooring for my home. My husband isn’t much better in that matter. Lately, we have been overwhelmed since almost all the flooring in our home needs replacing. The carpet upstairs is the original that came with our house and while I love my Reya, her puppy time left our kitchen vinyl flooring looking far from desirable. What makes picking the right flooring tricky is the fact that we have a very open floor plan on our first floor. Our kitchen, dining room, and living room all flow into one another, making it important that the flooring doesn’t clash in each room. While looking into different flooring options for our home, I was introduced to a flooring company that seems perfect for our own home – Tarkett.

Never heard of Tarkett? They are the single largest flooring company in the industry and are proud of their ability to give customers the largest selection of flooring. They believe that everyone should have the perfect floor for their needs, no matter if they are decorating their home, or caring for the image of a high traffic business. What personally impressed me was their FiberFloor® and Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring. Their FiberFloor® is designed with woven fiberglass, foam, and tough layers that make it more durable than most other floors on the market. Not only can it stand up to normal wear and tear, but water, scuff, scratches, and more, making it the perfect flooring for busy household areas. Their Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring is also perfect for those who want the look of tile without the high price tag. This durable and versatile flooring is comfortable and able to withstand the daily wear of a busy family. Best of all, it looks like real tile with or without grout, giving you the look you truly want in your kitchen or bathroom.

As someone with a very open floor plan, I also loved their iSelect selection, which divides their flooring into a design palette that suits your style. With their six easy to shop colors, you can make sure all the flooring in your house matches while still giving each room a unique look. I personally loved their Earthly Collection selection. I’ve always been attracted to earthy tones, since they are usually more relaxing and easy to work with in general (not to mention not showing every speck of dirt that might come along!).  Along with their extensive photo gallery of room designs, it is easy for someone decoratively-challenged, like me, to find the perfect flooring for their home. I personally was inspired by many of the pictures and am excited to see if I can incorporate some of the design ideas into our own remodeling efforts.

What really helped me experiment with different flooring was their online room visualizer, RoomVue. On this program, you can look at all the flooring offered by Tarkett using their premade pictures or a picture of your own room. You can even experiment with different wall colors, allowing you to experiment with different remodeling ideas. Once you have chosen the perfect look you can then save it, allowing you to get your husband’s thoughts later or material to bring with you to your preferred Tarkett store.If you are still unsure, don’t forget that you can also chat online with professional Designers.

For my own little remodeling project, I used a picture of our living room. It doesn’t matter if we want to sell our house or remodel it for ourselves, this is the first flooring that needs to be changed, with wear and stains in several places. We are hoping to put in hardwood floors, but due to our budget, we are open to suggestions. As you can see, it gave us quite a few ideas with how different types of Tarkett flooring would look in our home.

    Thanks for this post!! We have a whole house that could stand new flooring, but the budget won’t allow that at this time. My family room/patio needs it the worst and there are some really nice affordable options here. Thanks again for the review and pics

    I too am having a problem with not having the money to redue our floors. When we bought our historic home, most of the rooms had carpet on them. Between our pets and our allergies to carpeting, dust and mold, we had to take out the carpeting, hoping that the wood floors under the carpeting would be in good enough shape to refinish them. Unfortuately, the unprofessional workers they used played with the paint sprayers and all the hardwood floors are covered with such a mess. In addition, most of the floors had been sanded repeatedly when refinishing the floors over the years instead of using proper wood floor care. thus, there is a lot of splintering of the wood due to there not being enough wood flooring left to refinishing. I was glad to read this article for it is giving us another option in flooring that would not break our budget.

    Never heard of Tarkett before and I’m so glad I read your whole review! Love the idea of the RoomVue so you can get a pretty accurate idea of what the floor will look like. Also sounds like their products are durable! With three dogs, that’s a real plus. Every room in our home needs new flooring, but I know it will be a room by room process.
    Thanks for the great review and introducing this flooring to me.

    I really love the Fiber Floor! We need to replace our vinyl flooring soon and would love tile but don’t want to pay for it. I also find it cold. This flooring would seem to fit our needs.

    This came at the perfect time. We just made our last house payment and can now start other projects. Replacing the kitchen floor is at the top of the list. I will be checking them out. Thanks!

    I found your article on Tarkett flooring especially interesting as my house is definitely in need of a flooring makeover. Like you, I like the idea of the FiberFloor and Luxury Vinyl Tile since durability is a priority consideration for us as is cost.

    I really need a floor that will stand up to heavy traffic. We walk through the kitchen daily to come in and out of the house. My husband is bad about removing his shoes and scuffs the floor up.

    The flooring in your home can make a major difference in the look and feel of your home. Switching from carpet to wood or certain types of tile can improve the value of your home.

    Great transformation! I read a lot of positive reviews regarding the good quality of tarkett flooring. I’ll definitely include this on my list of supplier for my upcoming renovations. Thanks Susan for the great review.
