Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
Luxury vinyl flooring has come a long way since it was introduced, and is now more durable, resilient, and realistic looking than ever. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP) are the two top choices for most home owners today. Mazzullo & Sons Carpet One Floor & Home in Oneida, NY is your local retailer for all things luxury vinyl flooring, and our flooring professionals can help you navigate our selection of quality flooring.
Luxury vinyl is constructed of multiple layers and most commonly features a rigid core. Luxury vinyl is associated as a resilient flooring option because of its slight cushiony feel underfoot and its ability to return back to its shape after being compressed. These are just a few features that set luxury vinyl apart from the rest.
Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
The durability of luxury vinyl depends on its wear layer. Most commonly the wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clean plastic film applied to the surface of the product. The thicker this film the more durable the floor is. Luxury vinyl can not only withstand heat, but also moisture and heavy traffic. It is even resistant to mold and mildew, making it great for homes with allergies and it even means you can install it in bathrooms and kitchens.
Since luxury vinyl flooring is such a fast growing category, there are many different types to choose. There are luxury vinyl planks, luxury vinyl tiles, WPC floors, and rigid core flooring.
Where can Luxury Vinyl Flooring be Installed?
Luxury vinyl is well known for a few reasons. One of those being that it can mimic the look of real hardwood and stone, the other that it can be installed in more places around your home than traditional wood or stone. Luxury vinyl is made with some sort of water resistance, so it can be installed in places like kitchens, bathrooms, and even entryways. It is also made to hand foot traffic so it can be installed in hallways. Since luxury vinyl can look so realistic, you can install it in places like your bedroom and living room and almost never be able to tell it isn't the real deal.
