We Install Floors!

We talk so much about wall surfaces that sometimes we momentarily forget to talk about all the great flooring projects we work on. Oops!

We recently completed the installation of vinyl click planks in a condo in Abbotsford. The install included leveling the sub-floor, installing a quality acoustical underlay and finishing it off with colour matched baseboards.

New Moss Walls Made with Real Reindeer Moss

We’re excited to introduce you to the newest eco-friendly material to join our wall surface collection. Moss Walls are made from real reindeer moss than has been naturally preserved and safely coloured. It’s stunning!

Available in 13 colours, Moss Walls can be applied to walls or ceilings, designed into shapes, or combined with frames. Use it in your home as a unique feature or in your business to build your brand. Here is our first install… in our showroom in Surrey:

Vinyl Floors in Abbotsford

Posted on November 23, 2015 by Jared

The Eco Floor Store supplies and installs many different types of eco-friendly floors for residential and commercial clients throughout the Fraser Valley. Whether you’re looking for custom-stained hardwood floors, comfortable cork tiles or low-maintenance vinyl planks, we have a large selection of floors to match your style, space and budget.

For this condo in Abbotsford, the homeowner selected vinyl click plank flooring in oak charcoal by Harbinger™ Flooring.  We installed over 800 square feet after taking the time to properly level the floors. We also used an acoustical underlay to reduce noise transfer, an excellent consideration for strata units or multi-level homes.

The homeowner worked closely with interior designer Térence Doucet from Le Doucet – Design Group to help finish the space. Instead of installing the standard white baseboards, Térence recommended matching the colour of the baseboards to the floors to create the illusion of larger floors. An excellent design tip that looks great!

Here are a few photos of the installation:

Our Hourwall Surfaces are a quick and eco-friendly way of instantly transforming a space. And if you’re looking for the industrial look, urbanCONCRETE is the surface for your space!

The Eco Floor Store supplied and installed urbanCONCRETE for this small space in a luxury condo in Vancouver. Designed by AJ Barker Design, this dining room went from average to stunning in only a few hours.
