How does one write an interesting post about flooring? Seriously! Even after 2 glasses of wine this is daunting, so I will just keep it to the facts.
Choosing the floor
Finding the right floor for our expedition truck was -until we found one- a not-so-fun experience. We probably looked at 1000 different patterns/websites/pinterest posts /…, but nothing we really liked. At one point, I would probably agree with buying a polka dot pattern floor, just so we no longer had to keep looking. But like with most projects in this build, perseverance prevailed. Thank you Elmer for sticking to your guns, not willing to compromise, even though you had to endure me shooting daggers on several occasions.
And thank you Theo from Handyfloor, for your enthusiasm and for letting us test tons of samples. This is how we eventually found the floor we both really liked: PVC click tiles with rust pattern.
We chose for PVC, since it is the most versatile material we found. It’s
- easy to install,
- UV-light resistant,
- easy to clean,
- thin – 4.5mm (but not too thin)
This combination we just could not find in any other flooring option. We even looked at options like cork and bamboo.
Installing the floor
Note: We are not entirely sure if the click-system will be strong enough; but we can always glue it later.
