Why is luxury vinyl so popular?

It would not be easy to find something that offers so much value for the decorating dollar now considered a trend. This stylish, amazingly realistic mimic of wood, stone, or tile comes with countless functional capabilities, making it one of the most sought-after flooring products that keep increasing in popularity every year.

Affordable style

It's so realistic even flooring professionals sometimes have a hard time discerning it from the real thing. However, you'll know because you won't pay nearly the same price as you would for genuine wood, stone, or tile.

The images are taken with high-definition photography and have micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and texture. As another design option, the product can be cut into planks, called luxury vinyl plank or LVP, or groutable tile-sized squares, called luxury vinyl tile or LVT. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism, while others use plank for stone echoes while others prefer plank for stone looks, as they think the large format, fewer seams gives it more of a quarried slab look.

Waterproof capabilities

Made from waterproof materials, this product is impervious to liquid whether submerged or spilled on. Since it is waterproof, feel free to use it on walls; it will even stand up to the steamy and wet bathroom.
Other benefits include:
  1. Extreme durability: Five times thicker than original vinyl, this multi-layered product comes with a top clean melamine wear layer that protects the floor from dents, scratches, and scuffs. Actual luxury vinyl should measure at least 8-mm in thickness, with the wear layer measured separately at 20-mils.
  2. Easy care: All that's needed is regular sweeping and periodic mopping.
  3. Uncomplicated installation: This is especially so when it's a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without nails or glue.
