Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide

Vinyl has changed quite a bit due to advances in technology in the flooring industry. What used to be a peel-and-stick, one-size-fits-all option now comes in solid planks and tiles. Vinyl is even called resilient flooring now, and even luxury. Luxury vinyl flooring isn’t new, but it is up and coming in the flooring industry and will be a trend that stick around.

Expert Advice - LVT Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring, or LVT flooring, has become more and more popular in residential and commercial settings. Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some inside information about luxury vinyl.

Is Luxury Vinyl Durable?

Luxury vinyl is made up of multiple layers, and each plays an important role in the performance of the floor. The base of luxury vinyl can be either cork or rubber and can absorb sound making luxury vinyl quieter than other options. The core is typically a virgin PVC solid core that is waterproof and provides stability so the floors do not shift. Luxury vinyl’s top layer is a high resolution image of wood or stone and can either be flat or embossed. Then finally the wear layer determines how durable the floor is.

Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?

Luxury vinyl can resist water, heat, heavy foot traffic, mold, and mildew. This makes it ideal for areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways as well as a popular flooring option among homes today. Luxury vinyl comes in a variety of styles, patterns, and colors to match the look of your home and personal style. Choose from planks that can replicate hardwood, or tiles that can mimic stone. Regardless of your personal style there is a luxury vinyl floor made for your home.

Vinyl Plank and Vinyl Tile

Vinyl plank flooring is an alternative to hardwood, as it comes in wood-like planks. Vinyl tile flooring, as you can imagine, is an alternative to ceramic and stone tile.

Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?

As we mentioned earlier, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed virtually anywhere in your home. It can withstand the foot traffic you typically see in living rooms, it is comfortable enough for bedrooms, and it can handle the moisture you’d expect in kitchens. For rooms in your home with a lot of moisture, humidity, or traffic we recommend install a waterproof luxury vinyl option. Other places you can install luxury vinyl are basements, entryways, and even your hallways.
