Explaining the popularity of luxury vinyl flooring

Any vinyl is a trend, but it would not be easy to find something that offers so much value for the decorating dollar when it comes to luxury vinyl flooring. It has a high-end style and is waterproof, durable, low maintenance, and easy to install. There is a semi-rigid feeling underfoot, but it still has the warmth and flexibility of resilient flooring because it's vinyl.

Luxury vinyl flooring offers an affordable style

If you haven't seen it already, you're in for a treat. With nature-inspired images, wood, stone, and ceramic tile photographs are taken digitally, vibrant, accurate, and clear. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed with matte, gloss, and high gloss colors available. This product follows all the trends, so hundreds of wood species are cut into long "floorboards" called vinyl plank flooring. Stone looks, such as marble, granite, travertine, terrazzo, limestone, and slate are also available, as are ceramic tile mimics with square, groutable, tile-sized pieces (LVT flooring). These come in bold colors and brilliant patterns such as colorful geometrics, chevrons, herringbones, blocks, etc. This premium product is so authentic sometimes even the flooring experts have trouble discerning it from the real thing. Your wallet, however, will know because you won't pay nearly the same as you would for genuine materials. It's also so highly designed. We can put luxury vinyl flooring in every room in the house, including living spaces, hallways, and bedrooms.

Durable enough to stand up to kids and pets

This multi-layered product is five times thicker than the original vinyl. At the top is a robust, strong, and clear melamine layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and spills and, on top of that, is a clear urethane finish that adds extra strength and shine. Composed of 100% waterproof materials, this can be submerged or spilled on with no damage. LVF is also low maintenance, requiring only a regular sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid waxy shine-promoting products, as they can damage the finish and dull the floor. Installation is also fast and easy, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without nails or glue.
