Let us guide you on how to select the most suitable resilient flooring for your home.
- Know The Technology Behind The Planks
With so many different brands of resilient flooring in the market today, everyone is practically selling the same pros and cons. So how do you differentiate? For LURF, we don’t just offer a product, we offer a solution. LURF uses the latest UniClic Multifit click system that ensures a hassle free installation and replacement. Its revolutionary scratch and stain resistance ensures superior protection from scratches, stains, dirt and scuff marks. It is also quiet, soft and waterproof. Thanks to their excellent water-resistance, LURF floors are also the perfect choice for wet areas such bathrooms or kitchens.
- Plank Variation
This design technique adds lifelike colour variations with shades and tones, enhancing the natural look of the floor. With this technology, LURF floors have even greater natural plank variation, with each plank having its own incomparable wood structure. By adding subtle lifelike shades and tones, and high contrasts and variations to every plank, the natural look and depth of the floor is accentuated.
- Does It Offer Protection To Your Family?
At Floor Xpert we are committed to reducing our ecological footprint and to helping our customers reduce theirs. LURF gurantees 100% phthalate-free vinyl flooring. This means no phthalates are added during the production or recycling process. Thanks to the perfectly sealed surface of the floors, only an absolute minimum of volatile organic compounds are released: one hundred times less that stated in European regulations. We ensure that our commitment to a better living, to safety and sustainability not only matches international standards, it also matches your standards.
- Laying patterns

Did you know that even the way you lay your resilient flooring will result in different aesthetic look? Usually we use the main door as a starting point to decide on laying pattern. From the main door looking in to the living area, if you apply a vertical laying pattern, it will perceive a lengthier house. The effect will be longer instead of wider, which is good for houses with smaller square feet. However if you apply a horizontal laying pattern from the main door inwards, your walkway will look longer.
- Know What You Are Buying and What Is Covered For
Afterall purchasing resilient flooring is not exactly a small purchase, you need to know what you are getting yourself into. Don’t hesitate to ask our flooring consultant for the various certifications to put your mind at ease about the protection LURF can provide to you and your family. On top of that, our products are cover with a warranty guarantee to assure a peace of mind.
