Boundless benefits in luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) has a high-end style, multiple functional characteristics, and is easy to install. It's trending right now, and we even see it in some homes where once nothing but genuine materials, like wood or stone, would even be considered. With so many benefits, you'd be hard-pressed to find something that offers as much value for your decorating dollar, and we're breaking it all down for you here.

Extreme durability

Luxury vinyl flooring typically has at least four thick layers, which automatically make these floors firmer and more rigid. At the top is the wear layer, melamine, clear, strong coating that protects the floors from scratches and scuffs. It also helps with the waterproofing because it keeps spills at the top waiting to be wiped off.

Low maintenance

We all lead busy, hectic lives, and what little free time we do have shouldn't be spent on scrubbing floors. This requires daily sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Also, avoid waxy, sine-promoting substances, as these can damage the urethane finish and dull the floor.

Simple installation

It's uncomplicated, mainly when the floating floor technique is applied. Here, the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor without any nails or glue. Subfloors should be clean, dry, and level; most types are fine, even concrete.

Affordable flooring style

The looks are so realistic that sometimes even flooring experts have trouble telling it from natural wood, stone, or tile, but your wallet will know because you won't pay nearly the same price as you would for the real thing. Images are taken with 3D photography, so they have clarity and vibrancy with knots, grains, swirls, veining variations, and brilliant colors and patterns. This follows all the trends, whether gray or whitewashed floors, marble surfaces, or encaustic-style tile patterns.

Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. For even more realism, this vinyl can be cut into "boards" that mimic hardwood, called vinyl plank flooring; for stone and tile mimics, it’s cut into squares called LVT flooring. Many feel the extra seams add to the realistic look, while some take it even further by using grout with the tile-sized pieces.
