If the people we talk to in our showroom every day are any indication, luxury vinyl flooring has really made a big splash over the last year or so. Most people we talk to are initially attracted by the affordability, and want to learn more about the benefits of luxury vinyl flooring. So, we thought we'd get ahead of the game and put together this quick list of reasons homeowners are going gaga for vinyl!
As we mentioned earlier, most people first get hooked on the idea of vinyl because of the price. The incredible advances in digital printing and imaging over the last decade, have allowed flooring manufacturers to perfectly mimic the look of more expensive flooring surfaces so well that even an expert couldn't tell at a glance, all at a fraction of the price of the material it recreates.
This means you can have the incredible look of an expensive hardwood floor, for instance, without having to pay the large initial investment traditional hardwood requires. However, that's just the tip of the iceberg!
More and more, people are trying to make conscientious lifestyle choices that take into account their impact on the environment. This is one of the big reasons luxury vinyl flooring is experiencing a renaissance in popularity. That's because luxury vinyl is made of green materials, using production techniques that use less water, and produce less carbon, than some other flooring options. Depending upon the flooring, it can even allow you to earn incentives through green building programs!
One of the greatest features of luxury vinyl flooring is that it is waterproof. Combined with its ability to mimic the look of flooring materials that often suffer from issues revolving around moisture, luxury vinyl tile starts to look like the perfect flooring for kitchens, bathrooms, and rooms below grade.
If you want the look of wood flooring in your kitchen, basement, laundry room, or bathroom, you won't find a better option that luxury vinyl.
