Designed for residential spaces, Armstrong Flooring's Essentials Plus features the newest, on-trend designs while offering performance.

Touting the tagline, ‘Beauty Built to Last’, Armstrong Flooring’s newest rigid core collection, Essentials Plus, channels the popular Japandi design influence with a 20-SKU assortment that encapsulates this hybrid trend of melding Scandinavian and Japanese design creating a warm and calming aesthetic with a focus on clean lined minimalism. Built to withstand active lifestyles and households, Essentials Plus’ 5.5 mm SPC core offers superior indent resistance, while its 100% waterproof planks are protected by a 20 mil commercial grade wear layer for increased durability and lasting scratch, scuff and stain protection. Available in 60-inch planks with 7-inch and 9-inch width options, Essentials Plus also features a painted bevel for added realism and offers an assortment of on-trend and realistic wood and concrete visuals.

“As design trends move to a cleaner and lighter aesthetic, influenced by the height of pandemic, ‘Japandi’ comes to forefront,” says Di Anna Borders, vice president, design. “This is a melding of the modern flair of Scandinavian design and the timeless elegance of the Japanese aesthetic. Essentials Plus features clean, natural looking woods and trend-forward concrete looks.”
