What Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
For the most part, luxury vinyl, or LVT flooring, is categorized as a more durable alternative to hardwood and stone. Luxury vinyl looks exactly like hardwood and stone, but because of its synthetic construction, it can handle heavy foot traffic, moisture, and pretty much anything else life throws its way. Be sure to scroll down below to learn more about luxury vinyl's advantages.
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring available, but nowadays the most popular option seems to be waterproof core luxury vinyl. This group, which includes WPC flooring and rigid core options, has become popular because the luxury vinyl floors are considered 100% waterproof. The vinyl planks have super-strong waterproof cores, so they will never expand or contract when exposed to moisture.
Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, basements...virtually anywhere in the home. And, it can certainly be installed in homes with children and pets!
Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
What's most noticeable about luxury vinyl flooring is its natural looks. Luxury vinyl is specially-made to look exactly like wood or stone, and many options even offer authentic surface textures.
Luxury vinyl flooring features a synthetic construction, so it can handle moisture without any special surface treatments. Spills can simply be wiped from the surface without any consequences, even if you don't get to them right away. Also, some luxury vinyl floors feature strong cores, so they are considered 100% waterproof.
Hardwood and stone need to be finished and treated to resist normal wear and tear, and even then they will eventually scratch and scuff. Luxury vinyl, however, will not scratch, so it will continue to look as good as new for a long time.
