What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
If you’re replacing the floors in your home, and want a product that looks beautiful but is also functional, then take a look at our luxury vinyl selection. Luxury vinyl is not a new product, but it is becoming more popular among homeowners for many reasons. Luxury vinyl is no longer associated with low quality flooring, and has been increasing in popularity among homeowners. At Foote Bros Carpet One Floor & Home in Gadsden and Anniston, AL we bring you the latest in trending flooring solutions.
Luxury vinyl, which is often referred to simply as LVT flooring, is super-stylish and ultra-durable because of its special construction. Unlike hardwood and stone, luxury vinyl features a synthetic construction, which means that it is almost entirely made from durable materials. With this construction, luxury vinyl will resist surface scratches and scuffs, and it also can handle spills and stains. At the same time, luxury vinyl planks and tiles are reinforced with additional support layers, so they will rarely, if ever, crack, chip, or break.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
When it comes to luxury vinyl, you have a few different options, including vinyl tile flooring and vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl tile is an alternative to ceramic and porcelain tile, while luxury vinyl plank is an alternative to hardwood and laminate. We also offer other types of luxury vinyl options like WPC, SPC and rigid core, all of which feature incredible durability and waterproof qualities.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
Luxury vinyl has gained more popularity due to the advances in technology that allow it to be both a fashionable and functional flooring option. The fashionable aspect is achieved through the realistic visuals of the image layer, which can exactly replicate the look of natural wood or stone. The functionality aspect is archived due to luxury vinyl’s wear layer, which determines how durable the floor is.
The most common selling-point of luxury vinyl is how it is almost life proof. It is great for homes that are always entertaining, or homes with children and pets. Luxury vinyl comes in more than just one functional option, you can choose from different levels of durability as well as if it is waterproof or not. The amount of styles and patterns you can choose from is almost limitless, and you can have a truly custom and beautiful floor in your home that is budget friendly.
Where can Luxury Vinyl be Installed?
Although hardwood and stone offer natural style and luxury, they aren’t suitable for every residential setting. Hardwood, for example, isn’t the best option for areas with moisture or heavy foot traffic. Luxury vinyl, however, is suitable for pretty much any area in the home. It can withstand the foot traffic you typically see in living rooms, it is comfortable enough for bedrooms, and it can handle the moisture you’d expect in kitchens. In high-traffic or high-moisture areas like bathrooms, however, we do recommend choosing a waterproof luxury vinyl floor.
