When you walk into a flooring store you won't believe the number of available colors, patterns, and designs.
Standard vs luxury vinylYou have a choice:? standard or luxury.?
Both have a high-end design and have the same functional capabilities, but luxury is a newer generation and is thicker. Although the standard is highly water-resistant, luxury is completely impervious to water.?
Ask your flooring retailer to show you samples of each type of vinyl.
Reason #1:? Style?Both types of vinyl are incredibly realistic mimics of wood and other natural materials.? Both come with embossing features that give the flooring added depth and dimension and texture, such as wire-brushed, hand-scraped, weathered or distressed. Various finishes are available.
The tiles come in a wide assortment of colors, and ?groutable? tile-sized pieces.? Luxury vinyl can be cut into planks.
Reason #2:? Good for any roomBecause of the durability and waterproof factor, the kitchen is one of the most popular places to install it. You don?t need to worry if you drop a heavy pan or even spill some water. Like anything, however, spills should be wiped up as soon as possible.
Bathrooms are also particularly popular. Wood floors are trending hot this year but because of the room?s high moisture characteristic, genuine wood isn?t recommended.? With vinyl, however, you can have the appearance of wood. The marble bath is also currently popular; it?s easy to get that with this material.
Vinyl, either luxury or standard, is also recommended for kid's bedrooms, playrooms, enclosed porches, apartments, and condos.???
Many builders prefer it for apartments and senior communities because sometimes it?s easier to use one flooring type through an entire space, and it checks every box of aesthetics and function.
Reason #3:? Comfort.?It has a soft, cushion-like feel that makes it easy to stand on for long periods, such as if you're in the kitchen preparing a big meal.? It also doesn?t get cold, which can make it, combined with waterproof capabilities, a good choice for the bath.
