Luxury vinyl floors used to have a stigma about them, sometimes seen as flimsy, unable to provide the style and beauty sought from a flooring option.
No longer does luxury vinyl flooring carry that stigma, thanks to industry innovations. In fact, luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile have emerged as a increasingly popular floor for today’s active homes.
The reason for this can be found within the long line of advancement in the realm of luxury vinyl flooring.
The road to luxury
A primary appeal of LVP and LVT involve their ability to mirror the look of wood, stone or ceramic tile, paired with the advantage of being able to use them in areas of the home often prone to moisture, such as a bathroom, kitchen or laundry room.
They also offer an affordability factor that make them attractive for budget-conscious homeowners.
Today, luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile are proudly displayed in nearly any room in the home.
Designing with vinyl in mind
With flooring being the foundation of design in the home, many homeowners often look to utilize one type as a cohesive design element throughout the space. While the lack of waterproof technology may disqualify other flooring from having a presence in a laundry room or bathroom, LVP and LVT can thrive throughout the home, creating a cohesive, beautiful look, even in highly trafficked areas.
Individuality in home design elements is strongly sought-after. Choices should express a unique sense of style in each room, fostering the preferred sentiment and aesthetic.
LVT and LVP flooring gives an abundance of options in styles, sizes, and colors, allowing for seemingly endless opportunities to create a distinctive style.
The days of sacrificing style or function for sophisticated designs are over, thanks to today’s LVT and LVP and their realistic appearances.
Wood-look luxury vinyl offers traits of real hardwood. Its surface design can mirror the embossing and scraping associated with real wood, which increases its realism. It also can be installed in a variety of patterns, such as chevron and herringbone.
Flexible locations, authentic looks, and budget friendliness are certainly appealing characteristics, but there’s another key feature: performance.
Luxury vinyl flooring is both strong and durable, withstanding the traffic from little feet or furry paws, as well as times when a line forms near the food during a family celebration.
These floors are study, retaining their shape, even with natural wear and tear. With waterproof technology, they are a great solution for busy families who want affordable, worry-free flooring which looks as good as it performs.
Keeping vinyl flooring clean is made simple, providing another feature to the popularity of LVT and LVP among those looking for low maintenance, yet aesthetically stunning flooring.
