What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Luxury vinyl flooring is not a new product in the flooring industry. What used to be known as the “cheap” alternative to other flooring options such as hardwood and tile, is now associated with resiliency and even luxury. At Wheat’s Carpet One Floor & Home we carry only the best brands for our customers like you to choose from, and luxury vinyl is no exception.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
Luxury Vinyl flooring gets its popularity with homeowners from its unique construction. Not all luxury vinyl is made the same, just like not all homes are made the same. There is a luxury vinyl product for just about everyone, including homes with kids and pets that are accident prone. The wear layer is where luxury vinyl gets it strength, and is scratch and scuff proof. Luxury vinyl can also be made to be sound absorbing.
The high-resolution image layer is where luxury vinyl gets the most attention. Advanced technology allows luxury vinyl to exactly replicate the look of real wood and stone, so you can choose from luxury vinyl planks that look like hardwood, or luxury vinyl tiles that look like stone. Depending upon the needs of your home, luxury vinyl can be installed anywhere from bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms, and even basements.
