TYPES OF VINYL FLOORS
Vinyl flooring has increasingly become a favorite by many homeowners today. Famous for its resilience, flexibility, durability, aesthetics, waterproof ability, and affordability, no wonder the dollar sales of luxury vinyl tile, a type of vinyl flooring, amounted to 4.8 billion in 2019.
If you are considering replacing your old and damaged flooring, getting vinyl for your new floor will provide you with many benefits. Here is an overview of the most common types of vinyl flooring.
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)
Luxury vinyl tile is the newest addition to vinyl flooring options available in the market today. Despite being the latest addition, it has quickly become popular with many homeowners due to its good qualities. Luxury vinyl tile flooring provides a more realistic texture with an appearance similar to the natural stone or ceramic tile, thanks to 3D imaging technology. Luxury vinyl tile flooring also comes in different styles and colors that will surely compliment any architectural home design. Though luxury vinyl tiles are the most expensive type of vinyl flooring, it is also thicker and the most durable, lasting for up to 20 years.
Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)
Another selection for luxury vinyl flooring is the luxury vinyl plank. Similar to luxury vinyl tiles, it is also rigid, durable, and flexible. Luxury vinyl planks imitate the look and texture of hardwood. Different wood grains and textures are available to choose from. The good thing about luxury vinyl planks is that it is very easy to install and maintain. It is also less expensive compared to luxury vinyl tiles.
Sheet vinyl is considered as the standard type of vinyl flooring. It is available in large rolls, typically about 6 to 12 feet wide, and you will have to cut it according to your floor’s size during installation. This is the best vinyl flooring option for bathrooms and basements since there is less possibility of water seeping through it. It is also the least expensive type of vinyl flooring but still very resilient and aesthetically appealing. You can also opt for a very durable sheet vinyl such as inlaid vinyl, as it is thicker and hides scratches better. Different colors and styles are available that will give off the look of tiles, wood planks, ceramic, and stones.
