Learn About Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the fastest growing flooring categories on the market, and is also gaining popularity among homeowners as well. These floors feature a photo-realistic outer surface that is made to capture the look and feel of natural substances, and watertight surface. Luxury vinyl flooring has proven itself an enduring and economical alternative to stone or hardwood. In fact, unlike stone and hardwood, luxury vinyl can be installed virtually anywhere in the home.

Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?
As we mentioned earlier, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed virtually anywhere in your home. It can withstand the foot traffic you typically see in living rooms, it is comfortable enough for bedrooms, and it can handle the moisture you’d expect in kitchens. In high-traffic or high-moisture areas like bathrooms, however, we do recommend choosing a waterproof luxury vinyl floor. Other places you can install luxury vinyl are basements, entryways, and even your hallways.
Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring options, including vinyl tile flooring and vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are great for replicating authentic natural flooring looks. Sheet vinyl flooring is the original vinyl option that is noted for its installation versatility, and is slowly gaining back its popularity within the market due to realistic visuals and waterproof qualities.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
We often run into the question of whether or not vinyl flooring is waterproof. For the most part, all luxury vinyl floors are considered moisture resistant, but there are luxury vinyl options that are considered waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a watertight surface and a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from reaching the subfloor, and makes wiping up spills easy.
