Vinyl flooring is a contemporary style of flooring that is manufactured to resemble materials like tile or wood. Amazingly, the patterns and textures can be replicated for a flooring solution that looks and feels like the real thing. Instead of shelling out more money for natural materials, though, you save by choosing a more affordable flooring option that’s just as durable and easy to take care of.
Types Of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl can be installed in a few different ways. Vinyl can be cut into planks to resemble wood, into tiles to resemble tile, or can be installed in large sheets for great water resistance in areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed using a few different methods, too. Vinyl flooring can be installed with glue, as a stick-on option, or planks can lock together. Talk to a floor installer to figure out what the best vinyl type and installation will work best for your home.
Luxury vinyl flooring is made more durable by the finish that is applied to it. Depending on the area of your home that you’re having vinyl flooring installed in, you might consider these different options:
- Vinyl no-wax: resistant to scuffs and stains
- Urethane: lower maintenance, safe to use household cleaners on
- Enhanced Urethane: most durable option, maintains a higher shine
Choose a finish based on the amount of moisture that will be in the area you’re having flooring installed, as well as the amount of traffic in that area of the home.
