Choose Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVT flooring) has quickly become one of the most popular flooring options in residential and commercial settings. Why? For one thing, luxury vinyl combines the natural looks of wood or stone with premium performance. As a result, it can handle virtually any setting. Let’s take a closer look at luxury vinyl flooring’s appearance and performance:


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.


Performance is where luxury vinyl flooring really sets itself apart from wood and stone. Luxury vinyl, because it features a synthetic construction, can handle spills and stains, and it also features a super-strong top layer that will resist scratches and scuffs. Plus, luxury vinyl planks and tiles will never crack or collapse under heavy foot traffic. More importantly, many luxury vinyl options have strong waterproof cores that prevent the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. Consequently, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas where hardwood and stone are not suitable.

Given this premium performance, luxury vinyl flooring is relatively easy to clean and maintain. So, we recommend choosing luxury vinyl if you live in a household that’s busy with children and pets.
