Luxury Vinyl Plank and Luxury Vinyl Tile
Vinyl floors are resistant to water, mold, and mildew, making them an excellent choice for bathrooms and kitchens. However, luxury vinyl plank offers a broad spectrum of style and color options. The latest technologies can replicate textures found in natural materials such as wood, stone, cork or even bamboo. Several manufacturers now offer floating vinyl floors which can be installed without glue. This reduces the cost and the installation time.

Today’s Vinyl Flooring Offers Many Advantages… and Choices!
Vinyl ﬂooring has come a long way in the past ten years. Because of its resiliency and relative warmth, vinyl ﬂooring is more comfortable to stand on than tile or stone. Luxury ﬂooring is available in a wide variety of colors and styles made to mimic the look of natural wood, stone, or porcelain tile and comes in tiles or planks to match the look of whatever material it is replicating. Some manufacturers are now able to perfectly replicate the natural grains in wood and the texture of tiles.
Luxury On a Budget
In terms of cost, luxury vinyl flooring is usually less expensive than traditional hard ﬂooring options, while still providing the same look that they offer. Homeowners are able to get the rich look of wood, stone or tile at a lower price.
Superior Water Resistance and Durability
One of vinyl flooring’s biggest advantages is its water resistant properties, which make it ideal for bathrooms and kitchens, places where you often have a lot of moisture and a higher probability of ﬂooding. Today’s luxury vinyl flooring makes it possible for homeowners to have the look of wood in these areas without the consequences of water damage. Another advantage is durability. Luxury vinyl flooring is favored by many interior designers and commercial builders for the many style options and the ability of vinyl flooring to withstand heavy trafﬁc.
That durability makes them especially good options for residential applications as well. Vinyl ﬂooring in general is mostly maintenance free, a simple damp mopping is usually sufﬁcient. Special cleaning products exist for luxury vinyl flooring and those are good to use as well. However, traditional cleaning products should be avoided because they may affect the ﬁnish of the vinyl. The manufacturer’s warranty will often provide more information on the proper cleaning procedures.
