Why Luxury Vinyl
Homeowners looking for high-quality flooring shouldn’t overlook luxury vinyl, which is thicker than typical vinyl flooring and closely mimics the look of natural materials. It comes with a lot of advantages – from a variety of realistic design options to affordability. There are other reasons to take a second look at luxury vinyl flooring:
Durable: It stands up to heavy foot traffic, making it a good choice for busy families.
Versatile: Our luxury vinyl is available in hundreds of beautiful, realistic wood & tile textures, finishes, colors, and patterns, so there’s something for everyone!
Comfort: Thicker construction improves warmth, keeping toes warm even on cold days. It’s also soft underfoot!
Noise reduction: Sound insulation means active kids and pets won’t be a sound nuisance.
Easy clean up: The vinyl is water-resistant, pet-friendly, and mildew, stains, and spills are easy to clean up!
Types of Luxury Vinyl
Invented during the 1930s and making its debut at the 1933 “A Century of Progress” Exposition in Chicago, vinyl flooring has been a long-time mainstay in American homes. Vinyl flooring has come a long way since its inception. Luxury vinyl simulates natural materials but keeps the easy-to-clean advantage.
There are three primary types of luxury vinyl flooring: luxury vinyl tile (LVT), luxury vinyl plank (LVP), and engineered vinyl plank (EVP). Made of several layers, LVT is a popular and durable flooring that provides a variety of design options. Like planks of hardwood, LVP are individual pieces that look and feel similar to hardwood floors. LVP is available in both dramatic wide widths and long lengths. There are several different rigid core types available, depending on the look and feel & price range desired.
As a subset of LVP, EVP is both thicker than typical vinyl and more versatile and resilient. With a rigid core, EVP has superior wear resistance. Because it looks and feels real, EVP is often mistaken for the real thing.
Luxury Vinyl Wood Looks
Solid hardwood has a long history of being the flooring of choice in many homes, but wood comes with a few disadvantages such as vulnerability to water damage, pet damage, and warping. Luxury vinyl planks (LVP) offer the look of classic hardwood floors without the risk of warping, water damage, staining, or scratching. Ranging from hickory looks to oak to complex stain and color styles, including geometric patterns, LVP allows you to express a natural design while protecting against everyday life.
Luxury Vinyl Tile & Stone Looks
While natural stone is beautiful, it can be difficult to maintain. Luxury vinyl is a low-maintenance choice that doesn’t need to be waxed, polished, sealed, or stained. Integrated grout lines make installation simple, without all the mess. This type of luxury vinyl is perfect for places you would normally install natural stone, like bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms. Luxury vinyl stone and tile looks provide stunning realism with easy livability.
Luxury Vinyl Concrete Looks
Concrete flooring has been getting an update in the last few years. No longer the utilitarian surface of garages and basements, concrete looks can be both elegant and colorful. Concrete LVP looks provide a strong and durable option that isn’t hard and cold underfoot. Additionally, they don’t require regular sealing to stay looking their best. Naturally quieter and warmer, luxury vinyl is a dazzling addition to your home.
