Armstrong Pryzm WPC flooring is one of the latest collections to hit the luxury vinyl market, an extremely
popular choice with homeowners and designers alike who want the authentic look of hardwood in the
form of a durable waterproof surface. In addition to its popularity in residential construction, Pryzm
comes equipped with commercial-grade protection against scratches, dents, and fading, which makes it
an excellent option for small businesses with moderate foot traffic. Thanks to Pryzm's wood-plastic
composite (WPC) core, these vinyl planks are 100 percent waterproof so you can bring stunning wood
looks to areas where real hardwood isn't ideal, such as kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and rooms
that sit below grade. Like many other WPC vinyl products, this Armstrong collection comes with an
additional cork backing, which creates a softer feel underfoot and is particularly useful when sound
dampening is needed. Pryzm planks lock together, eliminating the need for messy adhesives. Because
of this locking technology, Armstrong Pryzm flooring can be floated over an existing floor or placed atop
a slightly uneven sub-floor without causing any visual or structural problems. These attributes make it
appealing for DIY installs.
Wood Colors and Specifications
Available in 17 different styles, Armstrong Pryzm flooring can fit virtually any type of home décor, ranging
from the modern to the classic traditional. Elements of Heritage is quite a popular choice, since
its high color variation between planks and availability in multi-width dimensions (4.3", 5.6", 7") provide
visuals reminiscent of vintage reclaimed hardwood directly taken from old-style, solid time-tested
construction. The alternating charcoals, light browns, and greys can really breathe life into any room
where it is installed. All the other color shades are available in 5", 5.7", and 6.6" widths with a 47.6"
plank length. Another great option for reclaimed looks is the Salvaged Plank color option.
Replicating antiquated birch, the stark white finish matches well with antique furnishings and draws
natural light in with ease. For subtler visuals, consider Brushed Oak, available in Brown, Grey,
and Tan. Maritime Weathered Grey is a perfect match for the inner seafarer in all of us, with its
off-white tones and weather-worn beige's that will temporarily transplant you to the sandy beaches of the
Mid Atlantic. Gray's Beach is similar in style, accurately replicating the look of driftwood that just
happened to wash up on the shore. Forest Treasure comes in white, grey, and brown. No
matter which trim you choose, Forest Treasure showcases the natural grain patterns and streaking of
classic oak. The deep amber reddish mahogany tones of Treeline Hickory work well in spaces
that require a more secluded feel, such as dens, home offices, and bedrooms. The piercing
Waterfront option is a sharp bluish grey that miraculously works equally well in rustic and
modern interior motifs.
Don't forget to choose a coordinated trim for your flooring project; Armstrong
Pryzm offers a multi-purpose trim, flush stair nose, overlap stair nose, and end cap. Armstrong also
makes available cleaning products for its laminate and hardwood floors; as Pryzm is 100 percent
resistant to water and spills, the offered cleaning system kit and laminate floor cleaner can be used on
these luxury vinyl WPC planks without worry. Armstrong Pryzm is built to last many years, with a lifetime
limited residential warranty and a 15-year limited commercial warranty to back it up.
In keeping up with shabby-chic design trends, Pryzm takes much of its influence from two other
Armstrong collections worth mentioning. The Architectural Remnants laminate
collection possesses the same antiqued, weather-worn hardwood looks in 18 different styles and slightly
wider 8" x 48" dimensions. For those who simply can't pass up the allure of real bona fide hardwood, we
recommend looking at the Armstrong Woodland Relics flooring collection. High color
variation between planks and rustic, reclaimed-style embossing make these hickory, birch, and oak
floors an excellent choice for homes that unapologetically embrace traditional style. Don't be afraid to
mix and match the multi-width plank sizes and the colors for maximum visual variation.
