Luxury Vinyl Guide
Vinyl has made a lot of changes since it was first introduced into the flooring market. What once was a sheet of material now comes in a variety of styles to choose from. At Whitt Carpet One Floor & Home in Salem, VA we carry luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank, which are the two top choices for most home owners today. Here are some reasons why luxury vinyl may be the right option for your home.
Luxury vinyl is one of the fastest growing flooring categories currently in the market. That means luxury vinyl comes in a wide variety of options. Homeowners love luxury vinyl because it delivers the authentic looks of natural floors as well as the durability you expect from a vinyl floor. We recommend luxury vinyl as an alternative to hardwood and stone because it is resilient, more cost effective, and more comfortable underfoot.
At Whitt Carpet One Floor & Home we are proud to provide flooring to Roanoke and Roanoke County.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl is composed of multiple layers, and some luxury vinyl floors feature a rigid core, whereas others feature a more flexible core. Luxury vinyl is also considered a resilient flooring option because of its slight cushioned feel underfoot and its ability to retain its shape after being compressed.
How durable a luxury vinyl floor is depends on the wear layer. The wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clear plastic film on the surface of the product. The more thick the film, the more durable it is. Luxury vinyl’s durability can withstand heat, moisture, and heavy traffic and it is also resistant to mold and mildew, making it great for homes with allergies and it even means you can install it in bathrooms and kitchens.
Luxury vinyl also comes in many styles, designs, and colors to match your home’s décor and your personal style. Luxury vinyl planks are made to look like hardwood and luxury vinyl tiles can mimic ceramic tile, meaning you can have both beauty and durability without the sacrifice.
Where can Luxury Vinyl Flooring be Installed?
As we mentioned before, luxury vinyl makes a great alternative to natural flooring. Since luxury vinyl is made to look exactly like hardwood but perform like a vinyl floor should, you can install luxury vinyl planks in your bedroom and living room. You guests will never they aren’t hardwood floors unless you tell them.
Luxury vinyl tile floors also look just like real tile, and some can even be grouted. A benefit of installing luxury vinyl tile in places like a kitchen or bathroom means your floors will be warmer underfoot, and luxury vinyl tiles feature more water resistance than some normal tiles.
Other places you can install luxury vinyl flooring include areas of your home with a lot of foot traffic like hallways and entryways. You can even install waterproof luxury vinyl in basements and laundry rooms.
