Luxury vinyl flooring is a popular up-and-coming flooring option currently available to homeowners like you. Luxury vinyl has become so popular due to how versatile it can be. We know choosing the right floor for your home can sometimes be hard, so at Columbia Rug Carpet One Floor & Home in Peoria, IL, we are your local neighborhood experts here to help you. Let us take a look at some of the features and benefits of luxury vinyl flooring.
If you have children or pets at home, these are the perfect option for you. They are easy to clean and care for, and unlike natural flooring they will not react to changes in moisture or humidity. Most styles can mimic the look and feel of real tile or wood flooring. This makes them an ideal option for homeowners who live active lifestyles and don’t always have the time to constantly be cleaning their floors.
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring options, including vinyl tile flooring and vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are great for replicating authentic natural flooring looks. Extremely affordable, yet undeniably attractive, sheet vinyl is also making a comeback. It is seamless and often waterproof, with advanced digital visuals that look very realistic. Since it’s sold by the roll, this flooring is quick and easy to install, and because it has no seams, it’s easy to clean.
Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT flooring, is a hard-wearing floor that looks just like natural stone and tile. Instead of a sheet, vinyl tiles come in individual square and rectangular shapes that are installed piece-by-piece. Vinyl tile flooring is cheaper to install than real tile and doesn’t require grout. It’s also more crack-resistant, warm, and quiet. Many of our luxury vinyl products also have a cushioned underlayment. This helps insulate your home, plus pet claws, heels, loud voices, and other sounds will be dulled to promote better room acoustics, which is useful for busy settings and active households.
Luxury vinyl plank, or LVP flooring, is a great alternative to hardwood. Vinyl planks come in long panels like real wood. Each panel features a beautiful high definition image of popular wood species like oak, mahogany, birch, maple, and beyond. This vinyl product offers formidable resilience in the face of water, hard use, and everyday damages, yet is extremely warm and comfortable to walk and stand on. Luxury vinyl planks can hold strong for many years, and they’re easy to install. Available in many realistic hardwood styles, including extra wide vinyl planks, LVP flooring is a beautiful addition to all types of settings.
Luxury vinyl is a great waterproof flooring option. It has the ability to resemble hardwood and stone flooring due to its innovative digitally printed image layer. You can find luxury vinyl in multiple styles that each mimic a specific type of wood or stone material not only by the way it looks but also how it feels in plank or tile versions. It is the budget-friendly option for those who are renovating their home, and is very easy to install.
You not only get the look and feel of hardwood or stone floors, but luxury vinyl is more forgiving underfoot because it gives a little when you walk on it. Some luxury vinyl manufacturers make their floors waterproof, and some options are more scratch and scuff resistant than others. Luxury vinyl floors are easy to maintain, and just need to be regularly swept.
