What is luxury vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl flooring is a popular high-end flooring product for several reasons. A few benefits that make it an excellent flooring option include durability, waterproof protection, stylish options, easy maintenance, and comfort.  Luxury vinyl flooring is highly resilient and designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, scratches, and wear. It's a long-lasting flooring solution for your home. With Miami's humid climate and occasional water exposure, many people prefer a waterproof floor in their homes. Fortunately, luxury vinyl offers excellent resistance to moisture, making it perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and more. Luxury vinyl flooring comes in a wide range of designs, patterns, and colors, allowing you to achieve the look of natural materials like hardwood or stone, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your home. Cleaning this floor is a breeze. Regular sweeping and occasional mopping are all it takes to keep it looking pristine, making it an ideal choice for busy households. Luxury vinyl flooring provides a comfortable underfoot feel, reducing strain on joints.

LVT flooring vs. LVP flooring

Luxury vinyl comes in two main types: luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP). Here's what you need to know about each:

  • Luxury vinyl tile (LVT): LVT flooring mimics the look of various tile materials such as ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone. It is available in different sizes and shapes, allowing for endless design possibilities to suit your home's style.
  • Luxury vinyl plank (LVP): LVP flooring replicates the appearance of hardwood planks. It comes in various lengths, widths, and wood grain patterns, providing the warmth and beauty of wood without maintenance or moisture concerns.

Understanding the composition of luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl floors are constructed in layers to enhance their performance and aesthetics. The typical composition includes a wear layer, printed layer, core layer, and backing layer. 

The topmost layer is a wear-resistant coating that protects the floor from scratches, stains, and fading, ensuring its long-lasting beauty.

Below the wear layer is a printed design layer replicating the desired look of wood, stone, or tile. Advanced printing technologies create realistic patterns and textures.

The core layer provides stability and durability to the flooring. It is usually composed of high-density fiberboard (HDF) or stone plastic composite (SPC) for enhanced strength and dimensional stability.

The backing layer adds stability, moisture resistance, and sound absorption to the flooring. It also helps to prevent any imperfections from the subfloor.

What to consider before you shop for luxury vinyl floors

Before purchasing luxury vinyl flooring, consider the following factors:

  1. Subfloor preparation: Before installation, it's important that your subfloor is clean, smooth, and level to achieve the best results. 
  2. Installation method: LVP and LVT flooring can be installed as a floating floor or glued down. Discuss the options with our professionals to determine the best installation method for your specific needs.
  3. Environmental considerations: Look for luxury vinyl flooring that meets eco-friendly standards and certifications if sustainability is important to you.
  4. Warranty and maintenance: Review the warranty coverage and understand the manufacturer's recommended maintenance procedures to protect your investment and maintain the flooring's beauty.
