Can I use luxury vinyl flooring to transform a room?

Yes! Luxury vinyl (LVF) is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update your home. It's stylish, durable, and completely waterproof so that you can use it anywhere, even on walls.

Honestly, we think it is not easy to find something that offers so much value for your decorating dollar. So, feel free to come into our showroom to explore our inventory that includes brands such as Congoleum, COREtec, Solid Tech, Pergo Extreme, and more.

Affordable style

This vinyl, a premium product, offers true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, all taken with high-definition photography. Colors and patterns are clear and vibrant, with knots, swirls, grains, and veining variations in full display. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.

This product follows all the trends so that you can get gray or whitewashed floors; marble or granite surfaces; or colorful tile patterns in geometric, hexagon, herringbone, or chevron arrangements--and that is hardly a complete list!

To add to the realism, the product can also be cut into planks, called Luxury Vinyl Plank or LVP. Squares that can be used with or without grout are also available and called Luxury Vinyl Tile or LVT.

Durability enough to withstand kids, pets, and heavy foot traffic

True LVF should measure 8-mm to 12--mm in thickness with a robust, transparent, melamine coating that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs and keeps spills at the top. That coating, called the wear layer, should measure 20-mils. A clear urethane coating at the very top adds extra shine and protection.

Remember that LVF is also waterproof, whether it's submerged or spilled on. That's particularly important if you have a pet who topple the water dish or splash.

Other benefits are easy-care; all it needs is a regular sweeping, and periodic mopping and installation is also simple, especially when it's a floating floor which is click, mat, and hover.
