Are you looking to start a reflooring project in your Dix Hills home, but don’t know where to begin? There are an endless variety of styles to consider, but today we want to teach you about one that has been sweeping interior trends: luxury vinyl. This durable, stylish, and affordable flooring style offers homeowners an easy way to bring in elegant looking styles without breaking the bank. Homeowners who choose luxury vinyl receive a lot of benefits you should consider for your own project. Let’s take a look at the qualities of luxury vinyl that make it a great flooring option.
What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Vinyl flooring consists of four layers: a protecting urethane top layer, a shielding clear vinyl coat, a printed design layer, and a fiberglass or felt backing. Luxury vinyl floor differs from traditional vinyl flooring in its uncanny ability to closely resemble the look and texture of natural materials. It accomplishes this feat with its “design layer” made with advanced photo printing technology to emulate the intricate look of hardwood and even stone. Luxury vinyl is soft underfoot and available in a wide assortment of colors and gloss levels. It also comes in tile or plank varieties to even better match the flooring style it mimics.
Is Luxury Vinyl Easy to Maintain?
As the synthetic cousin of linoleum, luxury vinyl is extremely easy to maintain. It’s a cinch to clean; you can wipe off dirt, grime, and foods almost effortlessly. When larger messes happen, you can take care of them with basic soap and water. Luxury vinyl floors are water resistant, which means they are safe to install in every room of the home, even bathrooms and laundry rooms.
How Affordable Is Luxury Vinyl?
Hardwood and natural stone tile floors are beautiful. Unfortunately, they aren’t the most budget friendly flooring option. Luxury vinyl is considerably more affordable than either of them yet it still looks like the real deal. Choosing luxury vinyl might mean the difference between installing flooring in one room of your home versus multiple rooms.
