Why You Should Invest in Vinyl!
If you’re thinking of investing in new flooring, it may be time to consider luxury vinyl flooring. It typically comes in two types – luxury vinyl plank (LVP) or luxury vinyl tile (LVT).
Apart from the increasing style options available, LVP and LVT are also extremely durable, waterproof, and easy to maintain. And if you’re haunted by the vinyl of the past, don’t worry: this isn’t your grandfather’s slippery, shiny, easy-to-tear stuff that used to pass as “flooring”!
Before committing to a new hardwood or linoleum option, consider why investing in vinyl may be the best decision for your home.
Luxury vinyl flooring products are known to withstand the test of time. Vinyl is scratch-resistant (great for a house with pets) and can withstand impact (we can all be a little clumsy at times). LVP / LVT are great options for high-traffic areas like kitchens and front entrances, and for parts of the house that are exposed to the elements.
It is no secret that consistent moisture and spills can be a death sentence for hardwood flooring. Vinyl can have water sit on it for days, and the boards will not warp or delaminate like other flooring options. Its waterproof badge of honor is why LVP / LVT was a popular choice for basements back in the day. Vinyl is a spectacular option if you live in a high condensation or a humid environment.
Ease of Maintenance
We love luxury vinyl flooring because it is a worry-free, low-maintenance choice. Drops, spills, scratches and heat won’t cause damage that could become costly otherwise. LVP / LVT products are easy to clean; grab a mop and you are good to go. With multiple options available, you can take care of flooring in every room without compromising on trendy styles.
