It lives up to the hype and then some: luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl seems to have become the new universal floor. It is strong, durable, waterproof, and it won't hit the budget too hard. It is also beautiful and adds an instant appeal to any room. If you are considering a floor for your home, this is an option that you will want to consider.

LVP and LVT flooring

Luxury vinyl plank, or LVP flooring, is designed to capture solid hardwood flooring's look and feel. The planks fit neatly together and in a random, staggered pattern just like wood planks. They also have more than a picture of wood on their surface; the vinyl is molded in such a way to capture the texture of a natural wood grain pattern. Many of the grains contain burls and knots, just as would the hardwood that they mimic. They both look and feel very much like hardwood.

Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT flooring for short, is designed to capture the look and feel of ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles. Like their plank cousins, LVT captures more than just the look of a solid tile floor, but also the texture. In many cases, a casual observer might not know that the floor they are walking on is vinyl and not tile or stone.

Durable and waterproof

LVT and LVP have a durable wear layer on the surface, designed to resist scratches and scuffs from the wear and tear of life. They are even highly resistant to the scuffing that might be caused by the toenails of those four-legged members of your family. Even if they do scratch, given that the pattern in the top layer of vinyl, most scratches will blend right into the floor's texture and will be unnoticed.

They are also waterproof. That means that moisture will not stain, fade, warp, or swell this flooring. It will also not cause this flooring to break down or lose its structural integrity. Furthermore, the moisture will not pass through this flooring to the subfloor below, keeping water away from where it does not belong.
