laundry room floor Mars

When was the last time you considered your laundry room flooring options? Here at Floor Coverings International Greater Pittsburgh, we think that utility areas deserve more attention than they get! Installing the right type of flooring can help you make the most out of your functional space and prevent damage to your home. Read on to discover the perfect laundry and utility room flooring material for your home in Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon, Wexford, Cranberry, Mars and surrounding areas!

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl is the flooring solution for Mars homeowners who want their laundry and utility rooms to be both comfortable and sturdy. Composed of thick layers of PVC and printed to resemble hardwood or stone, luxury vinyl will give any laundry room a renewed sense of style, without compromising on durability. What’s more, luxury vinyl is easy to clean and safe for moisture-prone areas. Especially if your laundry or utility room is below grade, this low-maintenance material is a great option.


If you’re looking for a laundry room solution that’s eco-friendly, comfortable, and affordable, linoleum is the way to go. Here at Floor Coverings International Greater Pittsburgh, linoleum is one of our top 3 eco-friendly flooring choices! Because it’s made of natural materials like linseed oil, limestone, and recycled wood fiber, linoleum is not as water-resistant as tile or luxury vinyl. If you know that your utility room floor will have to stand up to a lot of moisture, this material may not be right for you.

Linoleum also requires a slightly more delicate cleaning process than some other laundry room flooring options. However, the day-to-day upkeep of a linoleum floor is well within the abilities of any Mars homeowner. Plus, linoleum is a naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic material!


Tile flooring is another stylish and practical laundry room flooring option available to Mars homeowners. Tile is super easy to personalize and even easier to maintain! All you need to clean tile is a damp cloth and a bit of soapy water. Like luxury vinyl, tile stands up well to high traffic and damp conditions, making it perfect for basement laundry rooms and utility areas. Putting in tile is more labor-intensive than some other utility room flooring options, but the design experts at Floor Coverings International Greater Pittsburgh think that the look of a well-installed tile floor is well worth this effort!
