Luxury vinyl flooring is popular because it is the combination of an authentic natural look and performance all on one floor. It replicates the natural beauty of hardwood, stone, or tile, and it also is suitable for settings with moisture or heavy foot traffic. Luxury vinyl flooring offers premium looks and durability, and it is completely stain and water-resistant. It also will not bend or warp in any way, so a quality installation will last a long time. Bachmeier Carpet One Floor & Home in Coralville, Iowa, is your local flooring retailer and we are here to help you find the perfect floor for your home.
There are several benefits to having luxury vinyl floors. Let’s explore a few of them below:
When it comes to luxury vinyl there are many different options such as luxury vinyl planks, luxury vinyl tiles, WPC, and rigid core. Luxury vinyl plank is specially made to resemble wood floors such as hardwood and bamboo. The planks have a natural appearance, and many styles even offer authentic surface textures. However, given the luxury vinyl construction, these vinyl planks are more durable and more comfortable than real wood. Vinyl tile, as you can imagine, looks exactly like real stone or ceramic tile. There are multiple tile sizes available, and they, like vinyl planks, offer authentic textures and looks. Vinyl is much easier to install than tile, and since there’s no grout involved, you don’t need to worry about the grout staining or crumbing over time. Vinyl is also very resilient and less likely to crack and chip from foot traffic or dropped objects. It’s also warmer and softer underfoot than tile.
Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is designed for convenience and style. It is one of the best waterproof flooring options available and there are hundreds of different products now available, including planks that look exactly like your favorite hardwood species. These options make it easy to create a stylish composition that’s also welcoming to pets and kids. Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is easy to install and incredibly durable. It’s dense enough to manage frequent and heavy foot traffic while trapping spills safely on the surface. A weekly sweep-up is all that’s necessary in terms of regular maintenance, though a light mop can be used for more massive accidents
Luxury vinyl’s durability does not affect the realistic wood and stone visuals. These visuals are all truly authentic, as luxury vinyl includes special decorative layers with high-definition wood and stone visuals. In addition, many luxury vinyl options even have textured surfaces so that they feel like real wood and stone. This is called registered embossed technology. It's stylish and comfortable enough for family rooms and bedrooms, and it also remains strong and durable enough for kitchens and laundry rooms. So, if you want to add style and design to rooms with heavy foot traffic, moisture, or other external stresses, luxury vinyl is a great choice.
More modern types of luxury vinyl come with different installation options. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are made like puzzle pieces and can fit together nearly seamlessly. These are known as floating floors and can be installed over most subfloors, even an existing floor. There is no adhesive needed making the installation process more efficient. But you can choose a glue-down method for a more permanent bond.
