Warm Linen from the Reminiscent collection

Our Reminiscent collection is a stone polymer composite (SPC) floor that’s incredibly durable and highly affordable. We like to say this floor is unbelievably resilient. If you are looking for a worry-free, waterproof flooring option, Reminiscent is for you. Here are four reasons we think this collection is extra special.

Water, scratch and dent resistant.

Brushed Wool

The ceramic bead protective top coat, the .5 mm commercial-grade wear layer beneath that, and the Välinge 5G Locking System all work together to protect Reminiscent floors from liquid damage. If you happen to spill your morning cup of coffee or tea, no worries (unless of course it was your last cup). This floor repels liquids and is easy to clean.

Given its stone composite core, this floor is also resistant to denting. You can rest easy if you have rowdy guests over at New Year’s or if you like to rearrange the furniture. Did we mention it features an acoustical pad to diminish sound? This padding across the bottom of each piece also acts as a slight cushion for the planks to rest on, creating a solid fit to the subfloor beneath.

With its commercial-grade wear layer on top, it is scratch resistant, too. If you have scampering and skidding pets, or if you have kids who drag toys or sports equipment (or both) through the house, again no worries. This is a tough floor. You and your loved ones don’t have to be too careful with it.

Easy installation.

Harvest Jute

If you are already envisioning this floor for your home or office (or pandemic home office), then the news gets even better. You can likely install this floor yourself. Yes, even if you’re not mechanically inclined, ahem, like the author of this blog post.

Dare we say, this is a DIY dream. It doesn’t require much more than a saw to fit the planks to your space. With its locking system (we’ll tell you more about the technical aspects later this month so stay tuned), the floor locks together tightly without any fasteners or adhesives since it’s a floating floor.

If DIY is not for you, and you want to hire out the job, we get it. You are probably looking at half the labor price for a Reminiscent floor install compared to a typical flooring installation.

Another bonus with this floor is adaptability. If you decide a couple of years from now that you want a change—whether a new color or a new floor altogether—no problem. The floor is not nailed or glued down, so you can simply unclick its units and uninstall it as easily as you installed it.

If a few years down the road, you choose to move to a new home and feel you can’t leave your floor behind, guess what? You don’t have to. You can unclick and take the floor with you! Some of our European clients have done just that.

We sometimes can’t believe it looks this great.

Toasted Almond

Even we are sometimes surprised about how attractive this collection is. When we first began designing this flooring option, the visuals left a little to be desired. It was easy to tell the floor was a stone polymer composite. But as you may know, we embrace innovation, so we went to work. Over time we made improvements, and today the floor exhibits the features of authentic wood planks with knots, texture and grain. Take it from us, you may have to get on your hands and knees to determine if the floor you are standing on is real wood or Reminiscent. Below are some of the collection’s beautiful flooring choices from Harvest Jute to Warm Linen.

Friendly price point.

Oiled Leather

We understand that some folks shy away from real wood flooring options because when material and installation costs are added up, a consumer could easily be looking at $10 to $20 per square foot for an installed wood floor. Our Reminiscent price range is considerably lower—closer to $3 per square foot if you do the installation yourself.
