Are you wondering which type of flooring to carry for your clients, many who are looking for environmentally friendly alternatives? The decision can be daunting given the multitude of options available. At Silvaris, we simplify this process by stockpiling our inventory with a variety of flooring options that are not only high-quality and affordable, but also friendlier for the planet because we divert materials heading to landfills.
We offer a wide range of flooring solutions, from traditional options like carpet, tile, and wood to innovative materials like laminate, vinyl, bamboo, and other engineered floors. Each of these options varies in look, finish, hardness, flexibility, cleanability, and installation method, providing a solution for every need and preference.
Did you know the use of wood for flooring dates back to the early 1600s? A wood floor can last over 75 years if properly maintained, making it a great choice for those looking for a long-lasting option. While it may require more maintenance and be less resistant to moisture than other flooring types, hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished multiple times, extending its lifespan and retaining its beauty for decades.
Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, offices, and areas with lower moisture levels
For those who want the look and feel of hardwood without the hefty price tag, engineered hardwood is an excellent, modern alternative. It uses a thin layer of actual hardwood placed on top of plywood, providing durability and the same aesthetic appeal of solid wood at a lower cost.
Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, offices.
If you're looking for a more contemporary choice, fast-growing, renewable bamboo flooring has gained popularity due to advancements in production methods. It offers the durability of Brazilian hardwoods at almost half the cost.
Best for: Living rooms, kitchens, high-traffic areas.
Laminate flooring offers a versatile and cost-effective solution for various settings. It mimics the look of hardwood or stone but is more budget-friendly. Laminate flooring consists of multiple layers, including a photographic layer that replicates the appearance of natural materials. Its durability makes it ideal for high-traffic areas, and its moisture resistance makes it suitable for kitchens and bathrooms. Additionally, laminate flooring is relatively easy to install, making it a popular choice for DIY enthusiasts.
Best for: Living areas, kitchens, bathrooms, and high-traffic spaces.
Vinyl flooring offers practicality, resilience, and a wide range of design options. It is highly durable, waterproof, and resistant to scratches and stains, making it an excellent choice for spaces prone to moisture and heavy foot traffic. Vinyl flooring comes in various styles, including sheets, planks, and tiles, with options that mimic natural materials like wood and stone. It is generally more affordable than hardwood or tile flooring and is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only regular sweeping and occasional mopping.
Best for: Kitchens, bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, and commercial settings.
Carpet provides a soft and cozy underfoot experience, offering warmth, insulation, and noise reduction. It comes in a wide array of colors, textures, and styles, allowing for endless design possibilities. Carpet is especially beneficial in areas where comfort and sound absorption are priorities, such as bedrooms, living rooms, and children's play areas. It can also serve as an affordable and stylish flooring option for commercial spaces.

The Silvaris Difference: purpose, process and people
What sets us apart from other suppliers is our commitment to repurposing building materials. Many of the flooring options offered by us are materials that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

This is more than twice the amount of generated municipal solid waste. By choosing Silvaris, you're not only getting high-quality flooring but also contributing to the reduction of waste and promoting a more sustainable construction industry.
