Luxury Vinyl's Advantages
What makes luxury vinyl flooring such a popular flooring option in home settings? For one thing, it offers enough style, performance, and comfort for any setting. Read on to find out what exactly makes luxury vinyl the perfect option for your next home project.
Luxury vinyl flooring features special design technology to almost exactly replicate the looks of hardwood or stone. Many styles even have embossed-in-register technology to offer authentic surface textures! As a result, it’s often difficult at first glance to figure out whether or not a new luxury vinyl floor is actually the real thing. For wood looks, we recommend vinyl plank flooring, because, as you can imagine, it features a plank construction very similar to hardwood’s construction.
Performance is really where luxury vinyl flooring stands out from its natural counterparts. Luxury vinyl features a strong top layer to resist scratches and scuffs, and it also remains stain resistant as well. So, spills and stains will not be an issue. In addition, most luxury vinyl floors have extra support layers underneath to handle impacts such as foot traffic.
Luxury vinyl flooring is also totally waterproof, so it’s suitable in areas with moisture. The vinyl planks and tiles will never expand or contract when exposed to moisture, nor will moisture ever seep through the surface and reach the subfloor. If you want to add the natural beauty of hardwood or stone in your kitchen or bathroom, luxury vinyl is a great choice.
Unlike hardwood and stone, luxury vinyl is resilient and flexible. Consequently, it’s softer underfoot, and it also remains warm to the touch. Luxury vinyl is therefore much more comfortable than hardwood and stone.
