Advantages of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Did you know that luxury vinyl flooring is quickly becoming one of the most popular flooring options in homes and other residences? No other option can match the combination of style, comfort, and performance that luxury vinyl offers. Take a look at some of the most noteworthy advantages of luxury vinyl to see if it’s the right choice for your next project.
Luxury vinyl is specially-made to look exactly like hardwood or stone flooring. Because of advances in technology, these looks are truly authentic, so it’s often difficult to discern between a luxury vinyl floor and its wood or stone counterpart. For wood looks, there's vinyl plank flooring, and for tile looks, there's vinyl tile flooring.
Luxury vinyl floors all have strong top layers (called wear layers) that resist scratches, scuffs, and other markings. As a result, the floors will almost always look as good as new, regardless of the foot traffic in your home. At the same time, luxury vinyl will resist spills and stains without any special surface treatments. So, luxury vinyl flooring is perfect for homes with children and pets.
Unlike hardwood, laminate, and stone, luxury vinyl flooring is totally water resistant. Moisture can simply we wiped from the surface without any consequences. Furthermore, almost all luxury vinyl floors have strong waterproof cores that prevent the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting. Given this water resistance, luxury vinyl flooring is suitable for kitchens, basements, and other areas with moisture.
Since luxury vinyl floors are wear and water resistant, they are extremely easy to clean and maintain. In fact, only routine sweeping is necessary to keep the floor looking as good as new. The surface will never need to be refinished, nor will you ever need to schedule deep cleanings. This easy maintenance certainly saves you time and money in the long run.
