All about luxury vinyl flooring

Modern, high-tech luxury vinyl flooring is truly a unique manufacturing marvel, offering realism and depth with 3D designs. Aside from being highly stylish, luxury vinyl flooring is also durable and high performing, with a thick, sturdy wear layer. Nowadays, floating floors are growing in popularity, since many homeowners are in search of less permanent, easy-to-install flooring. However, while wanting an installation that’s quick and stylish, homeowners also desire popular looks like ceramic, hardwood, and marble. That’s where luxury vinyl comes in with lookalike designs, giving people the style they want, without the hassle of complex installation or upkeep.

Luxury vinyl tiles versus luxury vinyl planks

Luxury vinyl flooring comes in two very popular versions: LVT and LVP. While vinyl sheeting comes in large rolls, these tiles and planks are completely different. As the name implies, vinyl tiles typically mimic porcelain, ceramic, and other tile styles. Vinyl planks normally copycat solid hardwood. Regardless of their shape, either option looks very much like the genuine material, which explains why luxury vinyl flooring is fast becoming one of the most favorite installation types. Be sure to stop by our showroom to check out the differences for yourself!

Characteristics of luxury vinyl floors

  • Waterproof/water-resistant – Depending on the quality grade chosen, luxury vinyl installations can be waterproof or water-resistant.
  • Wide variety of designs – As mentioned, one of the best characteristics of luxury vinyl floors is their wide variety of designs, colors, patterns, textures, and even graining. They’re virtually endless!
  • Shape options – Aside from different styles, you can get your luxury vinyl installation in various shapes too, from short and wide planks to small mosaic tile pieces.
  • Scratch and stain-resistant – Premium installations offer high scratch and stain resistance, so you won’t have to worry about damaging your luxury vinyl floors with everyday life.
  • High durability – Though typically less expensive than many other flooring options, this certainly does not affect its high durability. Hard-wearing and long-lasting, you’re assured many decades of enjoyment if properly cared for.
  • Built-in padding and soundproof – A nice addition is the underfoot comfort this installation naturally offers, which also provides excellent soundproofing qualities.
