Interesting Flooring Options for Venice FL Homes

If you are considering Venice FL real estate and thinking of flooring options, consider vinyl plank floors.

What, you say? Vinyl?  Most people think of the ugly peel and stick tiles and old style sheet vinyl floors we grew up with in the 70s and 80's.  Fortunately, those days are long gone and vinyl has had a renaissance.

Remember this vinyl from the 70's and 80's?

Because most homes in Venice FL are built on a cement slab, wood floors most people are familiar with cannot be installed.  The concrete wicks water vapor from below, and causes solid wood floors to buckle and become moldy.  Engineered wood and laminate flooring require a vapor barrier and a foam pad, which increases the overall expense of an installation.

Dramatic wood look for a fraction of the price.

Vinyl plank flooring floats over an existing concrete slab and requires no moisture barrier.  They can be scored with a utility knife to length or width.  Vinyl planks are completely resistant to water and are among the cheapest solutions for flooring on the market today.


Create a beachy feel or an upscale appearance with vinyl plank flooring.
