What is the Best Floor for a Cabin?

Dear Bob and Betsy,
I have a cabin that I use off and on throughout the year and we’re looking to make a few upgrades. The cabin is not temperature regulated when we are not there. What is the best floor for this type of usage?
– Ron G.

Dear Ron,

That is a great question! We often don’t think about how temperature affects our flooring, but it can lead to major issues. Humidity and drastic changes in any wood-based flooring, such as laminate or engineered hardwood, can leave you with gaps and/or buckling planks.

For a cabin that is not temperature regulated, we would recommend a vinyl plank floor. Vinyl planks are a synthetic material that are waterproof and do not shift with temperature change. This flooring is also anti-slip, scratch resistant and affordable.

Vinyl plank flooring is easy to install and comes in a variety of looks, such as wood, tile and stone. Find a rustic look with a hand scraped texture or a subtle stone look to match your cabin’s appeal. You can choose from a floating vinyl plank, a glue down vinyl plank or a loose lay vinyl floor. This can be a quick project that creates a beautiful look for years.
