Luxury vinyl flooring: Affordable beauty and functionality

These days, more than ever, you want it all: style, durability, waterproof capabilities, and easy-care, all at a budget-friendly price. Luxury vinyl (LVF) meets every requirement, with a look that’s so high-end we see it in every room in the house. Please continue reading to see why LVF is one of the most sought-after products in the flooring industry and why we recommend it so highly.

Tracking flooring trends with luxury vinyl

This material keeps current with the design. Right now, wood floors are trending, but it’s not recommended for installation in excessively wet and humid areas, like the bath. Vinyl plank flooring (LVP) is a great alternative where the vinyl is cut into strips and mounted on boards to mimic hardwood planks. However, it can also be cut into square, groutable pieces (LVT flooring) to imitate marble, granite, slate, terrazzo, and other stones and tile.

Customers always ask us about the images and, thanks to evolving technology, these true-to-life echoes are taken with 3D photography. You will see knots, grains, swirls, wormholes, and veining variations. Features such as micro beveling and deep embossing add depth, dimension, and textured features (another trend), whether you want a wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed look. LVF is available in matte, gloss, and high gloss colors; add high gloss to LVP, and your floor will look like something out of the design pages

Waterproof vs. water-resistant flooring

LVF is 100% waterproof, meaning that it's constructed with completely water-repellant materials. There are no special coatings or backings, and liquid will not seep in from spills or submersion. Water-resistant means that there’s always some chance of water absorption.

This layered product has a top clear melamine coating that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs and keeps spills at the top just waiting to be wiped off. For the best quality, the vinyl should be at least 8-mm with a 20-mil wear layer. It is also low maintenance and can be installed with the fast and uncomplicated floating floor technique, just click, mat, and hover.
