Cairo Oak & Calypso Oak Comparison

Posted by MariRuth Runyon on 26th Apr 2023

You want the floors in your home to look good, but they also have to be functional. You want something that's going to last for a long time, as well as be easy to maintain. For a long time, hardwood floors added something extra to a home - and they still do today. However, most people are looking for flooring options that complement their lifestyle and don't require a lot of time and effort.

Two of the most popular products at Georgia Carpet are COREtec Cairo and Calypso Oak. We have sold nearly half a million square feet of Cairo Oak in the last year! These two styles have caught the eye of interior decorators and homeowners alike with their stunning wood shading.

Recently, traditional, natural wood colors have made a comeback. In the past, darker colors with grey tones were in demand for that modern feel. With Cairo and Calypso, there is a sense of warmth and new life breathed into today's decor. They have a longer plank size that gives a sense of grandeur and uniqueness.

When it comes to COREtec Cairo Oak vs. Calypso Oak, these designs are very similar visually, but a few specific features set them apart. Cairo Oak has an SPC (stone plastic composite) core, which ensures firmness and durability. SPC is considered the most rigid vinyl flooring, while Calypso is more flexible with its WPC (wood plastic composite) core.

Calypso is thicker and simply floats/clicks into place, whereas Cairo has longer planks that can be glued or floated. Both have attached cork backings for a quieter, warmer floor naturally resistant to mold and mildew that can cause odors.

Another feature when it comes to Cairo Oak vs Calypso Oak is durability, which is the top trait of these styles. They have an Armourbead™ wear layer that offers astounding performance. All COREtec floors are dimensionally stable and will not expand or contract due to temperature or humidity under normal conditions.

No matter where you lay these floors in your home, you'll take pride in their aesthetically pleasing looks and feel good about how long they can last. Your family will enjoy the comfort and beauty of either of these flooring options for a long time.

These products are as stylish as they are strong. Since the popularity of these colors has risen, Georgia Carpet offers a private-label product with similar colors. Bluegrass has an SPC core and is an excellent alternative to Cairo and Calypso Oak. These particular colors are in high demand, so Georgia Carpet will be stocking more products like Mannington Swiss Oak Almond that have the same color palette.
