Absolutely! Luxury vinyl is so stylish we?re seeing it in every room in the house, from the living/dining and bedroom to the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room.
What?s more, we?re also seeing it in some very high-end homes, and the flooring industry is telling us that it?s one of the top sellers.
What this material is, is a realistic mimic of wood, tile, and stone.
The luxury of a wide choice: tile (LVT) and plank (LVP)
The flooring is available in a wide assortment of colors, patterns, designs, and species and you can mix and match them, as long as it coordinates with the rest of the house.
The tiles are cut to various sizes. Plank means that the vinyl is cut into strips and mounted on boards to resemble wood. You aren?t limited, however, to using it only for wood; some people use planks when going for a stone look because they like that larger format/fewer seams look.
On the other hand, you can also use tile-sized pieces to create wood or stone atmospheres.
It depends upon your style and your choice; for example, if you love the farmhouse look, you?ll need something rustic, such as wood planks. If Southwestern is your theme, you can go for stone, either in tile or plank. If you love that retro look that?s trending right now, add pops of color with strategically placed tiles.
Texturing does away with the flat images we may remember from decades ago
When first introduced, vinyl floors were lauded for durability and function.
Over the years, technology has evolved ultra-accurate digital photography. You can very clearly see knots, raised grains, swirl, and veining.
Embossing adds texture, whether you want your vinyl floor to look wire-brushed, hand-scraped, distressed or antiqued.
Other advantages include:
?Easy cleaning: sweep and mop.
?Simply installation. With a few exceptions, it floats over most existing floors and the pieces can be glued or clicked.
?Affordability. This might be the biggest advantage because it's a fraction of the cost of wood, stone or tile.
?Durability. Vinyl floors are recommended as a pet-friendly or kid-friendly. You?ll also have the luxury of peace of mind because it?s completely waterproof.
