Luxury vinyl flooring: The most popular flooring worldwide

If you're in the process of remodeling your home, luxury vinyl flooring may be perfect for your renovation. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl planks (LVP) have quickly become the most popular type of flooring on a global scale. Come to the Barrington Carpet & Flooring Design showroom in Akron, OH and we'll help you understand if LVT or LVP are the best fit for your flooring installation.
 
 
 

How is luxury vinyl flooring constructed?

Luxury vinyl is a variety of hard flooring. It is particularly renowned for its ability to replicate the look of natural materials, such as wood, ceramic, or stone. Luxury vinyl flooring comes in a broad assortment of design options, is easy to install, is low maintenance, and inexpensive.

LVT consists of numerous layers: A polyurethane coating, a clear, protective layer named the ‘wear layer,' a print film layer, its central vinyl core, and a tile backing.

The advantages of luxury vinyl tile and planks flooring

Luxury vinyl tile or planks are an excellent choice for renovations that need a hard surface flooring. Whether for practical or aesthetic reasons, luxury vinyl tiles and planks combine the advantages of other hard flooring options without the drawbacks of special upkeep requirements or high cost.

The easy maintenance of luxury vinyl flooring

Notoriously challenging to maintain, hard surface flooring can be a real pain. Luckily, LVT and LVP have simpler maintenance requirements, making them less stressful to maintain than natural flooring. Due to its protective wear layer, LVT flooring doesn’t need waxing or polishing like solid hardwood. Instead, only minimal sweeping and mopping are necessary to maintain its good-as-new appearance.

The design flexibility of luxury vinyl flooring

LVT offers an immense assortment of design options. Among other natural look capabilities, it can mimic the grain of natural wood, or the texture of real stone. As images, textures, and patterns can be embossed into the tile to give it a more realistic feel, you can imagine that nearly any look is possible with such a versatile flooring material.

Whatever the design you choose for your new luxury vinyl flooring, rest assured that it will not wear away through use. Since luxury vinyl is manufactured with a protective wear layer, the textures, grains or patterns printed onto the film layer of the tile are guarded against scratches, scuffs, and damage.
