Luxury vinyl is an innovating flooring product that delivers aesthetic and performance of the natural materials such as wood and stone. It has all the features of hardwood, stone and ceramic combined but in lower price tag!
It comes in variety of rich colors and patterns to accommodate any design. It feels cushioned underfoot yet it is durable enough to last long in high traffic rooms. It feels warm and luxury at the same time.
Luxury vinyl is waterproof so application even in humid rooms is absolutely possible. It is also pet friendly as being stain resistant makes cleaning the pet accidents effortless. You can sweep, vacuum or wipe it, just remember to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines on cleaning products.
There are some considerations as well. Due to its softness compared to ceramic and stone, scratch might be a possibility. Since it is not actual hardwood, your return of investment (ROI) is not as high as the real wood.
Luxury vinyl comes in 2 formats of plank (LVP) and tile (LVT), both of which are easily installed and maintained. In tile form, it is more like ceramic, slate or stone. In plank form, it is more hardwood look alike because it often comes in big dimensions of 36”, 48” or 60” lengths and 5”, 6” and 7 3/4” widths. It also has edging options such as beveled edges to provide different looks and seams. Great embossing and striking graphics are the factors that set it apart from other vinyl floorings.
Luxury vinyl is the perfect choice for you if natural beauty and resilience of the wood and stone is what you desire without having to pay their high prices.
