What is luxury vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl (LVF) is an affordable, highly stylish, waterproof flooring with countless other functionalities, including durability. It is so sought-after it's considered a trend, mainly because it offers so much value for the decorating dollar. Please continue reading for detailed information on its benefits.

Stylish enough for any room in the house
With nature-inspired images of wood, stone, and tile, all taken with high-definition photography, you will see knots, swirls, grains, veining variations, bold colors, and brilliant patterns. There are no flat images here because micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks such as wire brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.

Whether you want gray, whitewashed, or barn door weathered looks, marble, granite, quartz, travertine, terrazzo, and slate surfaces, or chevron, herringbone, geometric and encaustic-style tile patterns, you'll get them and much more! To add to the realism, it can be cut into planks, luxury vinyl plank, or tile-sized squares, luxury vinyl tile.

LVT and LVP are so authentic-looking that even the flooring experts sometimes have trouble telling it from genuine materials, but you'll know right away. That's because you won't pay nearly the same price as you would for natural wood, stone, or tile.

Waterproof durability
Made with entirely waterproof materials, LVF is impenetrable to liquid and can be submerged or spilled on without consequence. It's also multi-layered and five times thicker than the original product; true LVF should measure thickness between 8-mm and 12-mm.

At the top is a robust, clear, strong melamine coating, called the wear layer, that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs and keeps spills from absorbing. On top of that is a clear urethane coating that adds extra shine and strength.

Easy care, easy installation
All it requires is a regular (daily, if possible) sweeping and a periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Then, the floor can be glued or float where the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor.
