Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the fastest-growing flooring categories in the industry. What makes luxury vinyl so popular? Here are 3 reasons:
Luxury vinyl flooring performs well in almost any residential or commercial setting. Its surface resists scratches and scuffs, and it will never trap dust, dirt, or harmful allergens. Furthermore, luxury vinyl can handle spills and stains without any special treatments. More importantly, most luxury vinyl flooring options are totally waterproof, so the vinyl tiles and vinyl planks will never expand or contract in moist conditions. As a result, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and other areas with moisture.
Furthermore, given its construction and durability, luxury vinyl flooring is strong and stable against foot traffic. Many options even have strong support layers to ensure that the tiles and planks never collapse under external pressures.
Compared to other flooring options such as hardwood, tile, and laminate, luxury vinyl flooring is relatively comfortable underfoot. Why? It has a rather flexible construction, so it’s definitely not as hard as other floors. Furthermore, most luxury vinyl floors have extra layers, such as cork underpayments, that provide additional softness and support underfoot. These support layers help keep luxury vinyl floors actually warm to the touch as well.
Although luxury vinyl flooring is incredibly durable and comfortable, it still offers the natural looks of hardwood and stone. All luxury vinyl floors feature a special design layer that includes a high-resolution image of either wood or stone, and since this layer is protected by a strong top layer, the looks are long-lasting. For wood flooring looks, be sure to take a look at vinyl plank flooring, and for stone flooring looks, take a look at vinyl tile flooring.
Many newer luxury vinyl floors even have authentic surface textures so that they feel like real wood and stone. These textures can even correspond with the wood or stone grains from the design layer! It’s no surprise that at first glance, it’s often difficult to discern between luxury vinyl and its natural wood or stone counterparts.
