Stylish savings

Luxury vinyl flooring (sometimes just called "LVF") is a realistic mimic of wood, tile, or stone. It comes in a wide assortment of colors, patterns, and designs; it is so fashionable that we're seeing it in every room in the house. We're also seeing it in some high-end homes where once nothing but genuine wood and stone would be considered.

Images are taken with 3D photography so they're remarkably clear. You will see knots, grains, swirls, and color/veining variations. Colors will pop. Patterns will be vibrant. It is embossed to give the floor depth, dimension, and textured appearances such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. It is available in matte, gloss or high-gloss finishes.

How is luxury vinyl flooring made?

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.
