A popular choice used by many homeowners, luxury vinyl flooring has made great advancements. Thicker material combinations, high focus photo printing, and hand scraped textures, to name a few. Perfect as flooring in areas with a risk of water damage, this material offers many benefits. Continue reading to learn why our team at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough recommends Luxury Vinyl and how to go about picking your perfect design.
A considerable benefit of luxury vinyl is that it is much more affordable compared to it’s more expensive counterparts, hardwood and tile. Despite being a budget friendly option, it tends to last longer compared to laminate. Additionally, while all luxury vinyl is water-resistant, higher-grade products are waterproof, making it a great option for kitchens, basements, and laundry rooms. Lastly, it is easy to repair individual planks or change the floor entirely, meaning you will potentially save costs in labor compared to renovations such as tile removal, which can be inconvenient and costly.
Luxury Vinyl is now often indistinguishable from real hardwood or natural stone, both in appearance and feel. This is due to its availability in planks, as opposed to the previous sheet vinyl. It is also made to be approximately 5 times thicker than normal vinyl. Thanks to the process of copying high definition photos onto luxury vinyl, unlimited wood and tile look patterns are available. In fact, luxury vinyl acts as a dupe for many pricey styles of hardwood, including cool toned, modern farmhouse, and distressed. These rustic styles can be made to look realistic with the added process of hand scraping different textures for dimension.
Installation & Convenience
Luxury vinyl can also save you money during the installation process. This is because higher-grade products can be installed on top of many different surfaces, saving you from having to remove the existing flooring during the installation process. Floors that luxury vinyl can be installed on top of include concrete, vinyl, and tile.
