Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
Luxury vinyl flooring's popularity is quickly rising among homeowners today. Its versatility makes it a desirable flooring option that can suit the needs of many different homes. At The Rug Mart Carpet One Floor & Home in Flemington, we are more than just rugs and carpets. We stay on top of the latest flooring trends, and luxury vinyl is one of the fastest growing flooring categories. Luxury vinyl comes in many different options for you to choose from, and our flooring professionals can help you navigate our selection.
Luxury vinyl is a popular flooring option for a few reasons. Its unique features and benefits make it a favorite among homeowners and businesses alike. Luxury vinyl is easy to care for, simple to install and is made to look exactly like stone, tile or wood flooring.
Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl (also called LVT or LVP) flooring is made from a multilayer construction. It provides durability, stability, and style. Not all luxury vinyl floors are made the same. Some luxury vinyl options are scratch resistant, others are water resistant, and some are even entirely waterproof. Luxury vinyl also comes in planks and tiles, so you can choose from wood look or stone look options. This is perfect for homes that are on a budget or want a nice looking floor that won’t suffer from day to day activities like heavy foot traffic.
Since luxury vinyl flooring is such a fast growing flooring category, new types of luxury vinyl are being introduced. Other types of luxury vinyl flooring include SPC, WPC, and rigid core options. All feature their own special benefits that transform your floor into a functional part of your home.
Where can Luxury Vinyl Flooring be Installed?
You can install luxury vinyl floors in just about every room of your home. They function well in spaces like kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and even finished basements. They are simple to maintain and incredibly easy to install, taking half the time a tile or hardwood floor would.
Luxury vinyl also comes in different installation methods. The most popular is the floating floor installation. Floating floors do not require an underlayment or adhesive, and they are quick to install so you can walk on them the same day. Another benefit of floating floors is you can choose to move them to a different room in your home easily.
