Why homeowners want luxury vinyl flooring

If you want it all, consider luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) for your floors. This material is 100% waterproof, making it ideal for wet areas such as the bathroom, but with high-end, inspired-by-nature designs that make it a stylish choice for living rooms, dining areas, bedrooms, and more. We love LVF and think you will, too, especially after you read the list of benefits.

Stylish savings

Sometimes even the flooring experts have difficulty telling it from the real thing, but you won't pay nearly the price you would for these wood, stone, or tile looks. Digital photography gives the clarity and vibrancy of the photograph, with knots, grains, swirls, veining variations, and brilliant colors and patterns. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured appearances, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. Since LVF follows all the trends, you can get anything, from gray wood look floors for a farmhouse-style kitchen, marble or granite surfaces, and filigree tiles.

It can be cut into planks as an additional design option to mimic hardwood boards, vinyl plank flooring, or groutable squares, LVT flooring. Some used planks for stone looks, feeling that the larger format and fewer seems gives more of a continuous look like that of quarried stone. Others think the seams add to the realism and take it even further using grout, now an important design tool in a broad color palette, with the tile pieces.


Waterproof flooring durability

Since this vinyl flooring is made of entirely waterproof materials, it can be spilled or submerged and fine. Actual LVF measures at least 8-mm and come with a top, transparent, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and spills. Wear layers should measure 20-mils.

These floors require only daily sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid waxy, shine-promoting cleaners as they damage the urethane finish and dull the floor. Installation is also fast and easy; it can be a floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue.
