Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl is one of the fastest growing flooring categories on the market. Since it mirrors natural floors, it’s a perfect alternative to hardwood and other expensive options. There are two main types of luxury vinyl available today: planks and tiles. At Marett Carpet One Floor & Home, we have one of the best vinyl flooring selections in the Volant, PA, area. We specialize in the latest trends and performance features, so be sure to talk with our experts about the best options for your space. We carry the following luxury vinyl brands: Invincible, Shaw, Karndean, COREtec, Mannington, LW Engineered Floors, Stone Cast, and Fusion.
Vinyl tiles come in the form of square and rectangular pieces that mirror stone, porcelain, and ceramic. This is in contrast to sheet vinyl, which is a single broad sheet. By installing individual vinyl tile pieces, the floor looks even more real. Each luxury vinyl tile has a high-definition visual that mimics natural flooring to such an authentic extent that most consumers can’t tell the difference. LVT flooring is softer and more crack-resistant than real tiling. It’s also available in completely waterproof collections.
LVP flooring comes in long panels that look identical to hardwood. Some vinyl planks are rigid, while others are more flexible. Like vinyl tiles, luxury vinyl plank flooring has a decorative wood look layer, protected by a durable surface. Since it’s synthetic, luxury vinyl is much more resilient to scratches, stains, and moisture than real wood. Luxury vinyl planks are also available in a variety of styles. You’ll find wide, narrow, and multi-length planks. We even have choices with bevelled edges and a surface texture that matches the wood look grains and knots. This adds to the overall aesthetic of your space and brings a multi-dimensional touch to your floor.
