Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
We make choosing a new floor easier at Carrell Rogers Carpet One Floor & Home in Lousiville and Sheperdsville, KY. Our wide selection and helpful flooring experts take the guess work out of exploring our collections. Luxury vinyl flooring, which is often referred to as LVT flooring, is one of those many options you can choose. Luxury vinyl is much different from its predecessor, vinyl flooring, in many different ways. Luxury vinyl, for example, is extremely durable and resilient, and it is virtually indistinguishable from its natural wood and stone counterparts.

Durability of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring has the ability to look just like hardwood or stone flooring. It comes in multiple styles that can mimic popular styles and trends of a specific material. In addition, it is the budget-friendly option for those who are renovating their home, and eliminates the challenging installation of hardwood.
There are more pros to luxury vinyl being an alternative flooring option. Get the look and feel of hardwood but without making a huge investment. They are also more forgiving underfoot when walked on, and even easier to clean. Now you’ll have more time to do the things you love.
Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
When it comes to luxury vinyl, water resistance and waterproof qualities are what set these floors apart. Most types of luxury vinyl feature resistance to water, and WPC (wood-plastic composite) flooring, for example, is a type of luxury vinyl that is waterproof. WPC flooring has a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from ever reaching the subfloor, where is can promote the growth of mold and mildew.
Another waterproof luxury vinyl flooring option is rigid core flooring, which gets its durability from its super thick and durable construction. Waterproof luxury vinyl comes in wood look planks and stone look tiles, so you can have your favorite looks installed anywhere in your home.
Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?
Since it offers premium performance, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed virtually anywhere in the home. It is especially popular in kitchens and bathrooms because it gives homeowners the ability to take advantage of natural style without worrying about moisture. At the same time, because luxury vinyl is wear resistant and rather comfortable underfoot, it can be installed in family rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms.
Luxury vinyl is a great option for homes with children and pets, as it will resist most spills and stains.
Vinyl Plank and Vinyl Tile
Two of the more popular luxury vinyl flooring types are vinyl plank flooring and vinyl tile flooring. Luxury vinyl plank is a durable alternative to hardwood flooring. Vinyl planks look and even feel like real wood planks, but they are made to resist moisture and everyday wear and tear. Luxury vinyl tile, as you can imagine, is as durable as vinyl plank, but it comes in tile shapes and sizes that look like ceramic or stone.
