First of all, there’s the amazing look of these floors. Thanks to the 3D printing of the image layer, you’ll get a flooring that not only looks like the real thing, it will feel like it too. The texture comes through amazingly whether you’re going with a solid hardwood look, or the look of all natural stone or tile. In luxury vinyl that mimics the look of ceramic and porcelain tile, the authenticity goes right down to the grout lines between the tiles.
Durability is a must for all homeowners, no matter which flooring you choose, and luxury vinyl certainly isn’t lacking. The wear layer, which comes in a variety of thicknesses, is responsible for the long life of the flooring. It protects against scuffs, scratches, dings, and even some gouging, as well as standing up to untrimmed pet nails and high heels. If properly cared for, your vinyl should look great for many years to come.
Most luxury vinyl is water resistant, which makes it great option for covering the floors in your kitchen, bathroom and foyer. It’s also part of the reason it’s so easy to clean up. Again, because of the wear layer, stain resistance is one benefit that you’ll soon come to appreciate. Sweeping and mopping are generally all you’ll have to do to maintain the great look of these floors.
