We make choosing a new floor easier at Carrell Rogers Carpet One Floor & Home in Louisville and Shepherdsville, KY. Our wide selection and helpful flooring experts take the guesswork 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.
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.
Luxury vinyl is the perfect option for families with pets in their home. Claws don’t stand a chance against the wear layer of many different luxury vinyl plank options. Since luxury vinyl planks can be made to be waterproof as well, you don’t have to panic when your pet has an accident and you cannot get to it fast enough. It’s also a top flooring choice for kid-friendly homes.
Two of the more popular luxury vinyl flooring types include 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 every day 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.
Luxury vinyl tile flooring brings an authentic sense of natural stone and tile into your space without the cost and complex installations. Vinyl tiles come in square and rectangular pieces that easily click-lock together as a floating floor – no grout needed. There are also glue-down luxury vinyl collections, which are better suited for high-traffic, moisture-prone spaces. Vinyl tiles are softer and warmer underfoot than real tile. They’re also less likely to crack and chip over time.
Luxury vinyl planks are an optimal choice for homeowners who are looking for a wood-look floor that is as realistic as possible. While these floors look and feel like natural hardwood, they are also protected from moisture, scratches, and dents as a result of a durable, synthetic construction. LVP flooring is available in a variety of styles like rustic, reclaimed, and brushed wood looks. Easy to care for and enduring, these floors are perfect for anywhere in your home or business.
Sheet vinyl flooring is often associated with dated kitchens. However, technology has advanced in recent years, allowing the creation of vinyl sheets with visuals so realistic they can be mistaken for real hardwood or stone floors. Sheet vinyl usually comes in 6 and 12-foot wide rolls and is virtually seamless depending on how much you need for your room. Since sheet vinyl doesn’t have as many seams, there are less points of weakness for leaks and moisture to escape to your subfloor. In fact, waterproof sheet vinyl is a popular choice for powder rooms and half baths because it’s a simple and stylish way to floor these areas.
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 many options are entirely waterproof. Waterproof flooring has the ability to resist expanding and contracting caused by moisture and changes in humidity.
Waterproof luxury vinyl products employ a variety of innovative technologies to give you 100% protection from spills and humidity. A rigid core layer in each plank or tile stops the floor from swelling when wet. Meanwhile, we install our waterproof vinyl floors with leak-tight seams that won’t allow moisture to escape below to the subfloor where it can cause damage. Lastly, all luxury vinyl products have a durable wear layer that’s non-porous, fast-drying, and stain-resistant.
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.
