Learn About Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the fastest-growing categories in the flooring industry. Why? For one thing, although luxury vinyl flooring, or LVT flooring, looks like real wood or tile, it will stand up to anything life has to offer. So, luxury vinyl can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and other areas where hardwood and even laminate are not suitable. Learn more about luxury vinyl:

Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
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.
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 underlayments, 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.
