Recently, a consumer on one of our social media sites asked for advice on finding a floor. She said she wanted an Armstrong floor in a specific color. That was all the information she gave us. Now, we make more than 2,000 different flooring options under four different brand names, and many of those floors are available in the color she requested. We told her we needed to know a little more before we made any recommendations.


Finding the right floor for your home can be overwhelming at times – there are so many choices. That’s because there are so many consumers with different tastes and different decorating styles! To help you – and our social customer – find a floor, let me offer a few thoughts.

When you’re looking for an Armstrong floor, first consider what type of floor you’re looking for. Armstrong makes hardwood, luxury vinyl, vinyl sheet and tile, laminate and linoleum. Below is a description of each of our flooring options and their benefits.

Hardwood. Hundreds of beautiful hardwood floors to choose from. A wide range of wood species from traditional oak to exotic Brazilian cherry. Adds value to your home. $-$$$

Luxury Vinyl. There are two options for Armstrong luxury vinyl: Alterna vinyl tile (looks like ceramic tile or stone) and Luxe Plank (looks like hardwood). High performance flooring. $$

Vinyl Sheet. Durable, easy to clean, comes in a variety of styles and colors, and can be installed anywhere in the home. Great resistance to stains, scuffs and spills. $$-$$$

Laminate. A popular flooring option for families and those with pets. Available in wood, ceramic tile or stone looks. Durability and affordability are key selling points. $$

Vinyl Tile. Easy to install yourself. Offers design flexibility (mix and match tiles). Durable, affordable and low maintenance. $

Linoleum. A “green” flooring option because it’s made from natural materials. Durable, but requires more maintenance than vinyl. This flooring can last 40 years or more with proper care. $$$
