Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
Anderson Carpet One Floor & Home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, has you covered on all things luxury vinyl flooring. Modern luxury vinyl flooring is nothing like that of the past thanks to digital and manufacturing advancements. Today’s LV looks more realistic than ever to authentic tile and hardwood flooring without the price or upkeep. Follow along below to learn more about luxury vinyl and see if it’s a fit for you.
The two types of luxury vinyl flooring are luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). These vinyl floors are able to give you the authentic appearance and feel of natural tile and hardwood flooring.
Luxury vinyl tile is a great alternative to natural tile flooring. It is both durable and water-resistant like tile, but furthermore, it is also warmer and more comfortable underfoot. Tile is traditionally cold and hard, so LVT makes it better to stand on for long periods of time. Vinyl tile floors are also just as easy to clean as tile so there’s no added maintenance.
Luxury vinyl planks can mimic natural hardwood flooring without the cost or potential downsides. Hardwood is naturally moisture-prone and cannot be installed in rooms where moisture levels may be an issue since the wood will warp and buckle under these conditions. Not only does LVP look and feel like hardwood, but its durable construction and water resistance mean it can be installed in rooms where traditional hardwood cannot.
While no luxury vinyl flooring is innately waterproof, they have varying levels of moisture resistance that will protect your floors from spills and stains. We also carry a selection of completely waterproof luxury vinyl flooring options that protect your floors and subfloors from water damage and mold and mildew. These 100% waterproof options use a specialized core that prevents the planks and tiles from expanding and contracting caused by moisture.
Luxury vinyl flooring is quick and easy to install. Most vinyl floors are installed using the ‘click-lock’ method. This method creates a floating floor by placing the planks or tiles together like a puzzle on top of the subfloor. Floating floors should not be placed under cabinetry as this can make it difficult to replace or remove broken planks and tiles. Luxury vinyl offers you the look of tile and hardwood in rooms that traditional flooring may not be well suited for in both residential and commercial settings. Because LV is both durable and comfortable, they can be installed practically anywhere including living rooms, bedrooms, and more. For the high traffic and moisture-prone areas of the home, like bathrooms, kitchens, and entryways, we strongly recommend waterproof vinyl flooring. Our in-house team of installers can install your new floors in both residential and commercial settings including rentals and seasonal vacation homes.
