Why everyone loves luxury vinyl flooring

With patterns inspired by nature, combined with durability and complete waterproof capability, it's now possible to have an affordable, true-to-life echo of wood, stone, or tile in every room in the house. Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is such a popular material we see it in some very high-end homes where once nothing but genuine materials would ever be considered. Because it follows all current trends, you can get anything from the trending gray wood floors to marble and terrazzo looks and vibrant herringbone and chevron patterns.

Vinyl plank flooring: for the realistic look of wood

One of the most highly regarded design options is that this material can be cut into different forms. With planks, the vinyl is cut into strips and mounted on boards to mimic hardwood planks. All LVF images are taken with digital photography, so they're clear, accurate, and vibrant; you will see knots, grains, swirls, and wormholes. Micro beveling adds depth, dimension, and textured features such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed, and they come in matte, gloss, and high gloss colors.

The other cut is the square, groutable pieces to mimic stone or tile, called LVT Flooring. Many feel the extra seams add even more to the realism, and some take it even farther by adding grout, now an important design tool. Some will use planks for stone looks, as they feel the large format, fewer seams look more like a quarried stone.

Waterproof durability

Made of 100% waterproof materials, this has the capability from top to bottom, meaning it can be spilled on or submerged. It is also a layered product and, at the top, is a clear, strong melamine coating that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. It also keeps spills at the top, waiting to be wiped off.

LVF is easy to care for with daily sweeping or dry mopping and periodic deeper cleaning. Installation can be an uncomplicated floating floor where the pieces mat together to click and then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue needed. Subfloors need only be clean, dry, and level.
