As the name implies, luxury vinyl flooring offers a luxurious, elegant, and unique look. It gives your home an authentic wood, marble, or stone finish look while maintaining affordability.
Before the introduction of luxury vinyl, regular vinyl flooring was one of the best flooring choices for areas with moisture and stain resistance issues. However, vinyl is prone to gouging and tearing leading to the production of an all-new type of vinyl—luxury vinyl. Compared to vinyl floors, luxury floors are way less prone to scratches, gouging, tearing, and other surface damage. Due to its increased resilience and durability, luxury vinyl is more expensive than regular vinyl, however, it’s still a very cost-effective option when compared to other flooring types like hardwood.
Today, luxury vinyl flooring, just like laminate, is becoming a popular choice for those seeking the elegance and luxury of hardwood floors without the hefty price tag. Apart from its elegance and affordability, luxury vinyl is also known for its ability to withstand tough stains and its easy maintenance. This quality makes it an ideal choice for families with pets and kids running around the house. In summary, luxury vinyl flooring offers a combination of elegance and sophistication with functionality and durability.
