Why is luxury vinyl so popular?

If you are in the market for a new floor, you’ve probably heard of luxury vinyl flooring. You may have heard how popular luxury vinyl plank or tile is, but you don't know why. Find out some of the more popular flooring features and what it holds for your home here.


Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) have a good reputation for flooring. These characteristics can serve you well in your home. You might be surprised how well luxury vinyl fits your requirements for your flooring.


If durability is one of your requirements, you will be pleased to learn that these floors are tough. They have a top layer that protects them from most scratches, scuffs, and nicks. They are also durable against fading. The core layer has a depth that negates anything gouging the floor so that it won't be marred in appearance.


Another popular characteristic is the waterproof nature of LVF. LVP and LVT are composed of PVC, which is a standard construction material that is entirely waterproof. So the floor won’t warp, ripple, or curl when exposed to a little or a lot of water.


One of the incredible things you will notice about luxury vinyl is its complete visual variation. It can mimic hardwood, porcelain, marble, brickwork, and stone. Each look comes with various colors and textures to make it unique to you and your home.


The installation process is quick and easy. You can choose from a floating floor to a conventional method. This gives you plenty of options for your installation and results. Talk to our staff about your installation options.
