What Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Vinyl flooring is very different from what it used to be about a decade ago. With advances in technology comes opportunity for improvement, and the flooring industry took advantage of that. What is known today as luxury vinyl flooring is the outcome of all that innovation.
What makes luxury vinyl (or LVT flooring) different is its multi-layer construction. Luxury vinyl’s durability comes from its assembly and its wear layer. The wear layer is made from a clear plastic film attached to a high resolution image that replicates wood or stone. The thicker the wear layer the more durable your luxury vinyl floor is. Luxury vinyl is also a solid option, which means it has a rigid core that increases the stability of the floor.
Luxury vinyl is popular for a few reasons. The first is its waterproof qualities, because of its solid PVC core, water does not get absorbed. Other desirable qualities of luxury vinyl are the way it mimics other natural flooring options. If you choose luxury vinyl planks, you can get the same natural beauty as hardwood with wood look options. The same goes with luxury vinyl tiles, get the same natural look of stone but the upkeep of a vinyl floor.
