The popularity of luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is durable, low maintenance, and 100% waterproof product that offers the beauty of wood and stone without the hefty price tag. It's ideal for all rooms, including the kitchen and bath, living and dining space, hallways, bedrooms, and more. It's challenging to find something else that offers so much value for the decorating dollar.

Luxury vinyl flooring offers stylish savings

Luxury vinyl flooring looks so realistic that sometimes the flooring experts have difficulty telling it from the real thing, but your wallet will know when you pay for it. Inspired by nature, this flooring features true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, created with digital photography that clearly shows knots, swirls, growth rings, grains, and veining variations. Color and patterns are clear and vibrant, and there is micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textured appearances.

This follows all industry trends to get the gray wood, slate, travertine floors, and colorful ceramic tile mimics. Sometimes called LVP/LVT, this vinyl provides a primary design option; the vinyl can be cut into strips and mounted on boards, called vinyl plank flooring (LVP), or into groutable squares called LVT flooring. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism.

Waterproof durability

Thanks to multiple layers, luxury vinyl flooring is five times thicker than the original product. At the top is a transparent, strong melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. On top of that is a urethane finish that adds shine and even more protection. Impenetrable to liquid, LVF is made from waterproof materials, so the capability is inherent. It can be submerged (as in an appliance flood) or spilled on, and it will be fine. Luxury vinyl is low maintenance, requiring only a regular sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid wax, shine promoting cleaners as they can destroy the finish and dull the floor. Installation can also be easy, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, and hover over the subfloor. Subfloors need only be clean, dry, and level.
