Considering Luxury Vinyl Flooring? 3 Things To Know

Luxury vinyl flooring is vinyl flooring that is composed of multiple layers of vinyl that are fused together and a top layer that has a realistic print or pattern. This type of vinyl flooring is popular with many homeowners because it is durable, water-resistant, and relatively easy to maintain. Luxury vinyl flooring realistically imitates hardwood, stone, or ceramic tiles but at a fraction of the price. If you are looking into luxury vinyl floors, here's what to know.

It's Durable

One benefit of luxury vinyl flooring is its durability. Luxury vinyl is resistant to scratches, dents, and stains. Once in place, your floors will look great for years to come. This type of flooring also stands up to heavy foot traffic. In addition, luxury vinyl flooring is water-resistant, which makes it a good choice for areas of the home that may be prone to moisture, such as bathrooms, basements, and kitchens. Finally, only a few hard surface flooring options are as durable and cost-effective as luxury vinyl. 

It's Affordable

Luxury vinyl is worth a look if you like the look of wood, tile, or stone floors, but they are outside your price range. What you pay for luxury vinyl flooring will vary depending on the type of vinyl, the size and style of the tiles or planks, and any additional features or finishes. Luxury vinyl flooring is usually more expensive than standard vinyl, but it is more durable and offers a more realistic appearance. Luxury vinyl flooring will set you back $7 to $10 per square foot on average. There's more to the cost than just the vinyl. Also, consider what you will pay for underlayment, installation fees, and any additional materials or tools that may be needed.

It's Easy To Install

Another benefit of this type of flooring is that it is easy to install. Putting in luxury vinyl flooring is a straightforward process that can be done yourself if you have some DIY experience. However, if you're not comfortable with the installation process or want to ensure that the job is done correctly, you may want to hire a professional flooring contractor to do the installation for you.

There are a few things to know if you are thinking about luxury vinyl flooring. First, luxury vinyl is durable and resists wear and tear. Second, luxury vinyl flooring is pricier than standard vinyl, but it's cheaper than many other hard surface flooring options. Finally, luxury vinyl floors are easy to install.

Walking All Over It

When someone says they got walked all over, they often mean they got taken advantage of. Of course, if your floor could talk, it would say the same thing, but it would have a very different meaning. Floors are meant for walking over. That's why we choose comfortable materials, like carpets, for rooms where we plan on doing a lot of standing. Of course, we sometimes have to choose something that's easier to clean, like tile, knowing that it is less comfortable. Well, that's enough writing about flooring for now.
