Luxury vinyl is the best of natural flooring and resilient flooring. The visuals are so realistic, you will have a hard time telling the difference.
Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Since luxury vinyl floring is such a rapidly growing flooring category, there are different options you can choose from. Luxury vinyl comes in planks and tiles which take on the authentic looks of stone, tile, and hardwood. Every tile and plank features a layered construction and some sort of moisture, wear, and scratch resistance. There are also other luxury vinyl flooring options like WPC and rigid core, which are types of luxury vinyl that have been enhanced.
Luxury Vinyl Installation
What sets luxury vinyl apart from other flooring options is its ability to be installed anywhere in your home. You can have wood look options in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room without worrying about moisture causing damage. The visuals are also realistic enough that you can have them installed in your bedroom and living room and still have the same luxury appeal as real hardwood flooring. Luxury vinyl tiles can also be installed in kitchens and bathrooms, and unlike traditional tile, they are much warmer and more forgiving underfoot.

Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
Looks Found in Nature
While hardwood flooring remains highly sought after, it’s simply not an option for many of us. Certain HOA’s don’t permit hardwood installs, while the humid temperatures restrict the use of certain hardwoods in some locations. While it looks and feels almost exactly like actual wood (or stone, or tile), luxury vinyl is made to resist moisture and daily use. Made by man instead of Mother Nature, this floor won’t ever warp, scratch, or become stained.
No More Water Woes
Made to withstand moisture- some varieties are actually 100% waterproof- luxury vinyl- your luxury vinyl floor won’t shrink or expand on humid days, nor will it warp when wet.
Live Life, Less Worry
With luxury vinyl, spills, scuffs, and scratches don’t need to be part of your daily reality. Rest easy and enjoy each moment knowing that accidents can and will happen, but your floors won’t ever tell.
