The trendsetting luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is already so popular it's considered a trend. It only gets more sought after every year because it offers so many advantages for your decorating dollar and, while home improvement shoppers are coming out in droves, they are, more and more, looking for value. After reading this, you'll think that luxury vinyl (LVF) is suitable for you also. 

Luxury vinyl flooring offers stylish affordability

With nature-inspired images of wood, stone, and tile taken with high-definition photography, you can be sure of getting vibrant and accurate depictions. This might include knots, swirls, grains, growth rings, veining variations, and bold, brilliant colors and patterns. In addition, micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.

LVF can be cut into long planks, called vinyl plank flooring or square, tile-sized pieces that can be used with or without grout, called LVT flooring. Many feel the extra seams add even more to the realism. While vinyl plank is mainly associated with hardwood, many also use it for stone echoes. The larger format with fewer seams gives it more of a continuous look of quarried stone slab, they feel.

Waterproof durability

Considered the most kid-and-pet-friendly flooring, this is multi-layered and five times thicker than original vinyl flooring. At the top is a robust, clear melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and spills. On top of that is a clear urethane finish that adds both extra shine and strength. True LVF should measure at least 8-mm in thickness, with a separate wear layer measuring 20-mils. Luxury vinyl flooring is made of 100% waterproof materials, so the capability is inherent. It can be submerged (as in an appliance flood) or spilled on with no damage. While the waterproofing makes it the obvious choice for some areas, the design makes it suitable for every room.
