Why you'll want luxury vinyl in your home

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) combines high-end design with functionality and affordability. This product can be 100% waterproof and is ideal for wet spaces like the kitchen, bath, or laundry room but stylish enough for the living or bedroom. With true-to-life echoes of wood, stone, or tile, this product provides the luxury effect at a budget-friendly price point.

Waterproof vs. water-resistant flooring

When a product, such as LVF, is constructed of entirely waterproof materials, in this case, vinyl and the vinyl composites core, it is impervious to liquid. Nothing can penetrate, either from the top (spill) or bottom (submerge, as in flood). Water-resistant means that there's always a chance that water can seep in, soaked to the core, stain, and ripple.

Sophisticated flooring style

We're now seeing this vinyl flooring in some homes where nothing but genuine materials would ever be considered. Images are taken with digital photography and have clarity and accuracy, showing knots, grains, swirl, growth rings, and veining variation. Colors and patterns are vibrant and, since it follows the trends, you can get anything from gray wood look floors to marble or travertine looks or fun, colorful geometrics, etc.

The floors have micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and texture, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, or distressed. With LVF, you can have the material cut into long planks to mimic hardwood boards, called luxury vinyl plank or square tiled-sized pieces, called LVT flooring, which simulates stone or tile. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism and take LVT even further using grout, now considered an important design tool.

All vinyl is durable, but true LVF has a thickness of at least 8-mm with a top, transparent, melamine wear layer that protects the floor. This vinyl is considered a premium yet affordable product and needs only daily sweeping and periodic mopping; avoid wax, shine promoting ones, as they can damage the finished and dull. Installation is also uncomplicated and can be a floating floor where the pieces click together and mat and then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue. Subfloors need to be clean, dry, and level.
