6 Reasons Luxury Vinyl Remains a Top Choice in Flooring

May 24, 2019

Renovating your home or business might take you down some expensive rabbit holes where you choose the wrong product and end up spending far more than you originally intended. Proper research and the use of professional guidance is the key to extending your budget and getting the value for money you seek.

At Top Carpets and Floors, our experience in the flooring industry gives us the advantage when it comes to understanding what premium products look like and how they perform. One of our recommended products, known for its high-quality standard, is our range of Luxury Vinyl Flooring.

Luxury vinyl flooring comes in two forms: luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) which closely resembles stone tiles, and luxury vinyl planks (LVP) which mimic the look of wood. Luxury vinyl’s emulation of wooden planks and tiles is so convincing that telling the difference is almost impossible.

Luxury vinyl flooring is extremely popular at the moment, and that’s because investing in this flooring system comes with some wonderful advantages:

1. Affordability

Redoing your home or office space can cost a lot, and many unexpected costs may emerge as the process evolves. Thankfully, luxury vinyl tiles and planks are affordable. Hardwood floors and marble tiles are pricey, while luxury vinyl flooring creates an almost identical result at a fraction of the cost.

2. Easy Installation

Installation is quick and straightforward. Compared to many other flooring systems, luxury vinyl flooring doesn’t take very long at all. Nobody wants to spend weeks with a sectioned-off room in their house while they await the completion of their revamping project.

3. Wide Style Selection

If you can imagine it, there is probably an LVT or LVP design to suit it. A photographic print film is placed beneath the plank or tile’s top, clear layer – this means that designs and patterns are easy to generate. Whatever type of aesthetic you are looking to achieve in your home, you will be able to find the right style.

4. Durability

Luxury vinyl flooring performs well under heavy foot traffic. Homes with pets, children and a lot of bustling activity are no match for this scratch-resistant, stain-proof product. Featuring an impressive lifespan is the reason that many commercial establishments make use of Luxury Vinyl Tiles and Planks.

5. Simple to Maintain

Professional cleaning and expensive treatments aren’t necessary. Exceptionally easy to clean and maintain, luxury vinyl requires only a weekly mopping to keep it dust and dirt-free.

6. Resistant to Water Damage

Water-resistance is a rather crucial factor in determining where to place certain types of flooring. Hardwood, for example, cannot be set near a lot of moisture – such as in the kitchen and bathroom. Luxury vinyl doesn’t absorb moisture, which reduces mould and growth of bacteria.

Investing in a new floor doesn’t mean that one needs to opt for luxury at the cost of the benefits mentioned above – with luxury vinyl flooring, you can have it all. At Top Carpets and Floors, we have a beautiful range of luxury vinyl products and will help you make the right choice when it comes to all your flooring needs.
