The new, modern luxury vinyl flooring systems are taking America by storm, and for good reasons. This new flooring offers some of the most incredible benefits of any type of flooring. If you are looking for a flooring product that will last for years, stay beautiful during that time, and is available in a huge array of décor options, then you need to check out luxury vinyl.
Luxury vinyl flooring is manufactured using high-tech processes that make it one of the most durable flooring materials on the market today within the resilient flooring category. The backing on luxury vinyl is tough, but it is also very comfortable underfoot. It is waterproof, reducing the risk of mold or mildew growth between the vinyl and the sub-floor. But, there is more.
One of the major benefits to luxury vinyl is that the surface of the flooring is so remarkably accurate in appearance, that it truly duplicates other, more expensive, materials. You can find luxury vinyl surfaces that look just like real hardwoods, natural stone, metal, concrete, and more. The resemblance is uncanny, and many people simply cannot tell the difference between the real material and the luxury vinyl.
For those who opt for hardwood-looking luxury vinyl, choosing the plank format can make the floor look just like a real hardwood floor with random length and width planks. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can be used for the natural stone patterns, metal, and other rectangular materials.
