LL: Tell us about luxury vinyl — why is this an area that’s grown more in recent years?
HG & PG: Luxury vinyl tile has been around for many years, however, the benefits of luxury vinyl planks and tiles have really been realized in the last few years. Warmth, sound absorption, comfort, ease of installation and durability are some factors for the usage of vinyl plank and tile in so many applications both residential and commercial.

HG & PG: Bright optimistic colours will define 2022.
