Luxury vinyl flooring in a Franken, WI kitchen

Why you should consider luxury vinyl flooring

That is a question with so many answers because luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) does answer every need, from providing high-end style to being affordable and durable. If you haven't seen luxury vinyl in a while, you'll be amazed at all the colors, styles, and designs in our inventory, and then the question will probably be, "Why wouldn't I consider it?" Here is a step-by-step breakdown of all the terrific things about this product.

LVF offers gorgeous design options

LVF is a true-to-life echo of wood, stone, and tile, available in an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns, with a three-dimensional quality. The vibrant images are taken with 3D photography and are clear, accurate, and show details such as knots and veining variations. The floors have a micro bevel and are embossed, giving it added depth, dimension, and textured appearances, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, or distressed.

LVF can also be cut into planks that mimic hardwood boards (LVP) or square, groutable tile-sized pieces (LVT flooring). Many feel the extra seams add so much to the realism that some flooring experts can't even tell LVF from genuine wood floors. It's all finished in matte, gloss, or high gloss colors.

Durable?waterproof flooring

This material is perfect for wet rooms like the bath, laundry area, or kitchen. Because of so many style options, we also see it in every room in the house. At the top layer of this multi-layered construction is a clear, strong, melamine wear sheet that protects the image and guards against scratches and scuffs.

LVF is thicker than a standard sheet and should be at least 8-mm ( if you decide on a vinyl plank, you may want to go as high as 10-mm to 12-mm for an authentic hardwood feel).Wear layers should be at least 20-mil thick. It's low maintenance with only a regular sweeping and periodic mopping required.

Installation can be an uncomplicated floating floor where the pieces mat and then hover over the existing subfloor.
