Luxury Vinyl Flooring and When to Consider Choosing It

Luxury Vinyl is one of the most popular home flooring choices; it’s durable, versatile, water-resistant and comes in both wood and stone looks. Luxury Vinyl is great at withstanding heavy foot traffic and a wonderful option for all rooms, especially kitchens, bathrooms and basements. Vinyl is designed to prevent water damage, so you don’t have to worry about tiles or planks warping after years of spills from kids and pets. Another reason to choose luxury vinyl is its affordability; it’s a more budget-friendly option than natural stone or hardwood.


Styles of Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Styles of Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury Vinyl Planks

Used when trying to imitate hardwood; the planks resemble everything from colour, species to surface texture for a realistic feel.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

Often used to replicate stone or ceramic looks. You can find luxury vinyl tiles in a wide variety of designs and surface textures.

Luxury Vinyl Sheet

Typically used in areas with moisture, such as the bathroom and kitchen. Sheets can also resemble the look of hardwood, stone, and tile.

Comparison of the Types of Vinyl Flooring

Luxury Vinyl Flooring is a great way to transform the look of your home and typically you can find it in three different styles: plank, tile, and sheet.

Rigid Core Vinyl Flooring

An engineered vinyl floor with a click-type installation process that doesn’t require any adhesives. It comes in a wide range of styles and mimics both hardwood and tile looks. A rigid core vinyl is thicker than traditional vinyl and will feel more sturdy and comfortable under your feet.

Stone Plastic Composite Vinyl Flooring

An engineered luxury vinyl that combines limestone to create a very durable plank. You will find stone plastic composite in areas that experience temperature fluctuations, such as cabins.

Wood-plastic Composite Flooring

Includes engineered luxury vinyl planks thicker than traditional vinyl; it will feel similar to laminate. It also requires a similar laminate installation process with a glue-less locking system.

Hybrid Vinyl Flooring

A type of vinyl that is merged with laminate, bringing together both materials’ best. Just like the other vinyl floors, hybrid vinyl is extremely water-resistant and durable.  These planks are appealing and imitate the look and feel of hardwood.
