Many homeowners these days are opting for alternatives to traditional floors when deciding on something new for their homes. There’s one style that’s been especially popular in recent years, and that’s luxury vinyl. This versatile material has many benefits that have made it a fast favorite. At Floor Coverings International Vancouver/Portland, we carry a wide variety of luxury vinyl flooring, and we love it! Read on to find out what makes these floors so great.
Luxury vinyl floors are made of various layers that are fused together to create a highly durable material. The base layer is a resistant backing that provides comfortable support and helps keep potential moisture from permeating through to the rest of the floor. The color layer provides a number of aesthetic options, and on top of that, the high-definition imaging layer can replicate the look of other materials, such as natural stone or hardwood. The visual layers are topped with a strong, protective urethane layer to prevent scratches and scuffs. Luxury vinyl floors are durable enough to withstand everyday wear and tear in the most high traffic areas of a home or office. They’re also suitable for installation in bathrooms, basements, and laundry rooms, as they’re resistant to moisture. As a bonus, they low maintenance and very easy to clean.
One of the best perks of luxury vinyl is that it’s available in all kinds of shapes and sizes. You can choose square or hexagonal tiles that mimic traditional ceramic or porcelain (as well as various natural stone options), or you can opt for luxury vinyl planks that emulate the tones and grain patterns of real hardwood floors. Finding the style that suits your specific design requirements has never been easier! Luxury vinyl floors boast the beauty and warmth of hardwood and the affordability of traditional vinyl that results in a wow-worthy combination.
When the flooring industry realized the innovation that was luxury vinyl, they knew they were onto something. This resilient flooring material has gained popularity in residential and commercial spaces across Vancouver and Portland. As this product has advanced, manufacturers’ costs have come down, and many of them have made their own lines of luxury vinyl. The innovation lies in creating an attractive yet affordable and durable alternative to the traditionally more expensive solid hardwood floors.
