Luxury vinyl is so popular right now because it is on top of the wood look trend. You’ll get the same detailed natural look and feel of hardwood flooring, but the benefit of it being luxury vinyl. It can also mimic stone and tile flooring. So not only are you saving money, but you now have a new floor that is easy to install and maintain.
What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring made of?
Luxury vinyl is made from multiple layers that all play a role in its functionality. The wear layer is where luxury vinyl gets its durability and resistance to scratching and even water. The core of luxury vinyl provides stability and even comes in waterproof options. The bottom layer is capable of sound absorption and also how it gets its slight cushioned feel when walked upon.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
There are a couple of different types of luxury vinyl flooring options, including luxury vinyl tile flooring and luxury vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are great for replicating authentic natural flooring looks.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
For the most part, all luxury vinyl floors feature resistance to moisture but there are luxury vinyl options that are considered waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a watertight surface and a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from reaching the subfloor, and makes wiping up spills easy.
Where can Luxury Vinyl Flooring be Installed?
You can install luxury vinyl floors throughout your home like in living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and more. In high-traffic or high-moisture areas like bathrooms, however, we do recommend choosing a waterproof luxury vinyl floor. Other places you can install luxury vinyl are basements, entryways, and even your hallways.
