What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Luxury vinyl flooring typically comes in two forms: semi-rigid luxury vinyl planks or luxury vinyl tiles. It is often thicker than traditional vinyl flooring and made of 6-8 layers of material. This includes:
- – Clear top-coat to add a shine
- – Clear wear layer to protect the design
- – Design layer with printed image
- – Cushion layer of foam to make the floor comfortable to walk on
- – Fiberglass backing layer
- – Solid PVC backing layer for strength and rigidity
Like laminate flooring, luxury vinyl flooring is installed using click-lock interlocking edges. Luxury vinyl planks are usually designed to look like wood planks (similar to laminate flooring) while luxury vinyl tiles are usually designed to simulate stone or ceramic tiles. There are hundreds of styles and colors available.
Why Choose Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Luxury vinyl flooring has become a popular flooring choice for homes and businesses due to it’s affordability, durability, and style.
Luxury vinyl flooring is a great option for waterproof flooring. It is good choice for:
- – Kitchens
- – Bathrooms
- – Laundry rooms
- – Other wet locations
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Planks and tiles are easy to clean. Simply sweep or vacuum them daily and as needed. While water resistant, it’s still important to wipe up stains and spills as they happen. Additionally, once a week or so, damp mop the floor with warm water. This type of flooring does not require sealers or waxes.
If any of the flooring becomes damaged, it can be disassembled and damaged planks can be replaced.
Luxury Vinyl Styles
Luxury vinyl flooring mimics stone and hardwood flooring in a very convincing way. Choose from realistic wood species including traditional Oak, Walnut and Birch and more exotic species. You can also select unique texture and finishing effects including weathered white-washing and reclaimed looks. When it comes to stone styles, you can choose a classic look like marble or travertine and even planks that mimic concrete.
How is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Installed?
This type of flooring is generally installed using a click-lock system where the edges of planks or tiles are interlocking. Usually the floors float over the subfloor with no glue-down bond necessary. A glue-down option is used for certain circumstances.
An Alternative to Hardwood Flooring
Don’t get us wrong – we love hardwood flooring. However, it’s not always the most affordable or sensible option. For water-prone areas, luxury vinyl flooring can be the better option. Further, luxury vinyl is especially durable and does very well in high traffic areas.
