One of the most terrific design options is that it can be cut into planks or tiles. The planks are made by cutting the vinyl into strips and then mounting them on boards to mimic hardwood planks. Tiles are square, groutable pieces, called luxury vinyl tile. Many feel the extra seams add more realism; some take the tiles even further by using grout, which now comes in colors and is considered a design tool.
Other ways it can change your life is that it will make cleaning easy. All you need is a soft broom to sweep regularly (preferably every day) and a mop for periodic deep cleaning. Use a manufacturer-approved cleaner; the waxy, shine-promoting cleaners will damage the flooring's polyurethane finish and dull the color.
You also won't need to follow your kids around, since it's so durable that it isn't fazed by pull toys. Crayons, markers, and even lipstick wipe off easily. LVF has a thick, clear melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs and keeps spills at the surface. Installation is the floating floor technique, a click-and-lock system.
