Why you’ll want luxury vinyl flooring throughout the house

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) has a sophisticated look with a functionality that is second to none. The waterproof and durability capabilities make it ideal for busy, wet rooms like the kitchen, bath, and laundry room, with a style that makes it appropriate for living/dining areas and bedrooms. It’s being installed in some high-end homes where nothing but real wood or stone would ever be considered.

State-of-the-art style

Even though vinyl was introduced to the US Market more than 60 years ago, modern technology might keep you from recognizing it. It’s thicker than ever with more design options. This flooring is a true-to-life mimic of wood, tile, or stone and it comes in a wide array of colors, patterns, and styles. The image layer is taken with 3D photography so the images are remarkably vivid, displaying knots, swirls, and other features. Embossing adds depth, dimension, as well as texturing, such as wire brushed, hand scraped, weathered, or distressed. It’s finished with an assortment of matte, gloss, and high gloss colors. The best design option of all? LVF can be cut into vinyl plank flooring (LVP), where the vinyl is cut into strips and then mounted on boards to mimic a hardwood plank. It can also be cut into square, groutable tile-sized pieces, called luxury vinyl tile or LVT. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism and, while luxury vinyl plank is most often associated with hardwood looks, many use it for a stone appearance to get that continuous look of quarried marble or some other stone.

Other considerations

The thick top clear melamine wear layer protects the floor from scratches, scuffs and makes it impossible to damage the image. While it looks like natural materials, such as authentic wood or natural stone, you won’t pay nearly the same price. It’s easy to care for with a daily sweeping and periodic mopping. The installation technique is the floating floor where the pieces click together to form a mat, which then hovers over subfloors without nails, staples, or glue.
