BUYING TIPS FOR LUXURY VINYL
Luxury vinyl, also known as LVT, LVP or resilient flooring, is an amazing material if you’re looking for something that is both a great value and long-lasting. It is softer underfoot than ceramic tile and wood, which makes it a great choice for kitchens where you’ll spend a lot of time standing. Additionally, it has the ability to hold up under even the harshest conditions – it is resistant to dents, moisture damage, and heat, and some varieties offer built in soundproofing! If you’re considering luxury vinyl, you may also want to read up on laminate flooring which is another great option for high traffic areas.
Though sometimes used in commercial applications, luxury vinyl is a great solution for residential applications as well. Breakthroughs in digital printing allow manufacturers to create the look of expensive stone, wood, and ceramic tile floors with stunning realism at a fraction of the cost of the real material.
Another huge benefit of using luxury vinyl is the easy maintenance. It is highly water and stain resistant. You will only have to sweep up dirt and debris periodically, and if you need a deeper clean, you just need to use a damp mop. Follow all manufacturer cleaning instructions.
