About vinyl flooring

This has also transformed with the same advances that add to the depth, dimension, and textured features. Vinyl comes in many versions, including standard sheet, composite tiles, and luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl gives the true-to-life appearance of wood, stone, or tile. It follows all current industry trends, including woods like gray, whitewashed, and weathered barn door wood, marble, travertine, or other stones or tile patterns with industrial chic or gemstone looks.

Vinyl plank flooring echoes hardwood boards, while Luxury Vinyl Tile, LVT flooring, refers to square, groutable tile-sized pieces. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism while others prefer LVP for stone appearances: There should be a thickness of at least 8-mm or higher, especially with the wood look. Wear layers are measured in mils, and that number should be at least 20.

Whether you select laminate or vinyl, both are durable and easy to care for, needing only a regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Avoid wavy, shine-promoting cleaners as they can dull. Both have the option of installing with the floating floor technique where pieces click together to hover over the subfloor.
