Why is luxury vinyl flooring so popular?

You will always go right with luxury vinyl because it offers so much value for your decorating dollar: affordability, style, durability, waterproof capabilities, easy care, and an uncomplicated installation.

Stylish savings

Inspired by nature, there are true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, all taken digitally, so they're clear, vibrant, and accurate. You will see every knot, swirl, grain, and veining variation Colors and patterns pop with brilliance. Micro beveling, a technique where the sides are slightly cut and angled, gives depth and dimension. Embossing adds to that with textured looks, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.


An added design option, this material is cut into two forms: long planks, called luxury vinyl plank or LVP, and groutable squares, called luxury vinyl tile or LVT. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism, while others say plank, with its larger format and fewer seams, is also great for stone mimics because of the more continuous look of a quarried slab.

Ultra durability and waterproof capabilities

A multi-layered product, this is five times thicker than the original vinyl. It also has a top transparent melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs, and, on top of that, is the clear urethane coating that provides extra shine and even more durability.


Composed of entirely waterproof materials, this can be submerged or spilled on. A quick wipe, and it's good to go!


People also love easy care; it needs regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep it looking great. Installation can also be easy, especially when a floating floor is clicked, mat, and hover.
