The question should be, "why wouldn't I consider luxury vinyl?" it is, without a doubt, a product that provides the most value for the decorating dollar. This checks off every box that anyone could want: high design, affordability; durability; 100% waterproof capability; easy-care, and uncomplicated installation.
With nature-inspired, true-to-life images of wood, stone, and ceramic tile, you can get any look you want; that includes wood look floor with knots, grains, and textures; stone, such as slate, travertine, marble, etc.; or tile mimics with brilliant colors and eye-popping patterns. These are so realistic; even the flooring experts sometimes have trouble telling it from genuine materials.
All follow the latest trends and, to add to the realism, it comes cut into planks called luxury vinyl plank or groutable square tile-sized pieces, luxury vinyl tile. While planks are mainly associated with hardwood and squares with tile or stone, you aren't limited to how you use them. Some prefer LVP stone looks, while others use LVT for wood tile looks.
Durable enough for kids, pets, and heavy foot traffic
This vinyl is a layered product five times thicker than the original one. Luxury vinyl (LVF) also comes with a top, transparent, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs; a clear urethane finish on top of that adds extra strength and shine.
This requires only a regular (daily, if possible) sweeping and a periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Installation is also uncomplicated, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without adhesives.
