Luxury and vinyl are two words that you wouldn’t assume go together, but the latest in vinyl flooring really is pretty luxe. Light years from the vinyl flooring of old, luxury vinyl floors come in a wide range of looks – from hardwood to stone to tile and plank. As flooring retailer Barrington puts it, luxury vinyl floor (or LVF) is a loosely kept secret among places like restaurants, hotels, offices and other hip, chic establishments that see lots of foot traffic. Luxury vinyl floor is favored by savvy homeowners and builders alike because it is affordable, stylish, water resistant and durable.
The Pros’ Choice
Builders and designers love luxury vinyl flooring because of its versatility and good looks that stand the test of time. Not to mention it’s wallet-friendly! Here’s are some pros of luxury vinyl flooring straight from the professionals:
- Made of manufactured materials, which makes it more affordable (and sustainable!) than other natural, limited resource materials
- Comes in a wide range of looks – hardwood look, stone tile or plank look, and so much more
- Softer than natural materials and keeps a constant temperature throughout the seasons – so you won’t get cold feet!
- Durable and water resistant, making it suitable for even high-moisture environments, such as kitchens
