Why we love Luxury Vinyl

Why we love Luxury Vinyl

We talk a lot about Luxury vinyl on our blogs and other social platforms. It has become a top contender in flooring since its birth in 1970 and its rise in popularity in the 2000s. So, what exactly is Luxury Vinyl, and why is it taking over the flooring industry?

Luxury vinyl is the combination of what you want in a commercial flooring product with the elegance and timeless look of hardwood. Luxury vinyl means not having to sacrifice high-quality design for industrial utility. The ease of installation is something to be noted along with its beauty and affordability. So let's take a deep dive into why we encourage Luxury Vinyl to everyone from the everyday DIYer to the vetted commercial builder.  

First things first, what's the difference between Luxury Vinyl Planks and Luxury Vinyl Tile? 

When considering luxury vinyl flooring, that term includes both planks and vinyl tile. The two are very much alike and are manufactured in the same way. Both are long-lasting waterproof flooring and installation is very similar. 

So why do we love Luxury Vinyl so much and what are the benefits of installing it in your homes?

Aesthetic Appeal: Luxury vinyl flooring brings the coveted look of hardwood flooring into your home without having to sacrifice the price and more complex installation of what hardwood floors can bring. 

Durability: These products can withstand the wear and tear of everyday life for many years, resisting chips, cracks, stains, dents, and other types of damage.

Easy to maintain: Luxury Vinyl does not need to be sealed to maintain its quality or to protect from damage. They are simple to keep clean and hygienic, making them ideal for homes with small children and pets.

Acoustics: Luxury vinyl flooring absorbs sound better than other types of tile, so it improves the acoustics of the room where it's installed.

Waterproof flooring: It is exceptionally water resistant, which makes it ideal for installation anywhere in your home, even in areas that get wet often, such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, mud rooms, and entryways.

 Affordable: LVF is often more budget-friendly than the materials it replicates. For example, if you love the look of marble, you can install marble-look LVT in your home for a fraction of what the real thing would cost.

Easy to install: With using a limited amount of tools and experience, Luxury Vinyl can be installed by almost anyone. 

From flipping a house, renovating your own space, or considering flooring for commercial real estate, Luxury Vinyl is the economically safe choice to give you floors that last, fit your budget, and take away the stress of installation. 

At we are passionate about education and answering questions and have made it easy for you to know how much to order for your floors. With a calculated estimate per square footage or a call for pricing, we can help you achieve your flooring goals.
