Vinyl tiles have been experiencing an increase in demand as compared to engineered wood products because these products have features such as eco-friendliness, scratch and slip resistance, and are waterproof.

In several parts of North America and Europe, carpets and rugs are a distinguished form of flooring. They are easily available, come in various design patterns, and can be easily installed. Despite their high costs, wood flooring offers characteristics such as environmental stability, wide aesthetic appeal, and durability.
