The Luxury of Style


Should I install Luxury vinyl plank in my enclosed porch?


Yes, a lot of people have sunrooms and, as long as it's protected from the weather (such as intense sun or floods), a vinyl plank floor can be a terrific luxury!

It is, after all, a significant part of your house and, more and more, people are finding this product to be more than only flooring for the kitchen and bathroom; they are installing it in living rooms, dining rooms, laundry rooms, etc.  It's an especially good decision to have vinyl here because it gives people a chance to wipe off their feet and not drag mud and dirt into the house, so you have the luxury of function with the beauty of a wood-look plank.

The luxury of style

Vinyl flooring isn't what it once was decades ago, when the functional properties were impressive, but the designs were a little limited. These days you can get it to mimic wood, stone, or tile. Thanks to modern technology, images are concise and texturing features keep the image from being flat; now they can have hand-scraped, wire-brushed, distressed, or antiqued appearance.

The flooring is cut into planks and mounted on boards to look like real timber or large-print stone. The seams of each plank give the floor even more realism.  Species, designs, colors, and patterns are available in a wide range.


Ultra-durability and more

Luxury vinyl is a layered product, with the topmost coat being the significant wear layer that protects each plank from scratches and stains. Spills, splashes, pull toys, heavy foot traffic, and more don't faze it.

It's also easy to clean; just sweep with a soft broom, vacuum (preferably with a soft brush attachment) and mop with water and a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Stains, even those caused by lipstick or markers, are easily removed. Installation can be very DIY-friendly; it installs over most existing floors and the pieces just click together.  For more information, come into the About Floors n' More showroom in Jacksonville, FL.
