About Luxury Vinyl Flooring
One of the most popular flooring options on today’s market, it’s no surprise that luxury vinyl flooring appeals to so many different homeowners. From its photo-realistic outer surface – made to capture the look and feel of natural substances – to its watertight core, luxury vinyl flooring has proven itself an enduring and economical alternative to stone or hardwood. In fact, unlike stone and hardwood, luxury vinyl can be installed virtually anywhere in the home.
Carpet One Floor & Home of San Ramon is your local source for all things vinyl and luxury vinyl flooring. Our flooring experts are here to help you and answer questions you may have. We are able to match you to a floor that not only suits your personal style, but also complements your lifestyle.
What Are the Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Traditional vinyl flooring has always replicated the looks of wood and stone, but luxury vinyl flooring takes this to the next level. Because of advancements in digital printing technology, luxury vinyl looks exactly like wood or stone. In fact, the looks are so authentic that at first glance, it’s impossible to discern between luxury vinyl and its natural counterparts. In addition, many high-end luxury vinyl floors feature surfaces with registered embossing technology. With this technology, the floor will even feel like wood or stone.
For hardwood looks, be sure to take a look at vinyl plank flooring, but for tile and stone looks, vinyl tile flooring is a better option.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
We mentioned before that luxury vinyl flooring can resist moisture, but is it waterproof? For the most part, all luxury vinyl floors are considered moisture resistant, but there are some luxury vinyl options that are considered waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture at the surface so it does not reach the subfloor, and makes it easy to wipe up.
Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?
Luxury vinyl, compared to natural hardwood, is suitable for pretty much any area in the home. It can withstand the foot traffic you typically see in living rooms, it is comfortable enough for bedrooms, and it can handle the moisture you’d expect in kitchens. In high-traffic or high-moisture areas like bathrooms, however, we do recommend choosing a waterproof luxury vinyl floor.
