Luxury vinyl plank: More than just a pretty face

Many of our customers who visit our showroom are immediately drawn to the luxury vinyl plank flooring, because of the striking styles on display. While it is true that luxury vinyl plank flooring is beautiful, there is a whole lot more to it than just a pretty face!

Choosing the right flooring for your home is about a whole lot more than how it will look, so we thought it would be good to give you the lowdown on this lovely flooring material that goes beyond the superficial into the functional. Here is everything you need to know about what exactly lies behind that pretty face!

Luxury vinyl plank is one of the more versatile flooring materials out there, because it can be safely employed in areas where other materials are inadvisable. Vinyl plank flooring is waterproof, which makes it a perfect candidate for kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and laundry rooms. These are all places where materials like carpet or hardwood would suffer all sorts of damage, and could even become a health risk!

Another great thing about this material is its ability to mimic the look of other materials at a fraction of the cost. Not only will it go where wood cannot, but it will also look like wood doing it!

If the last time you looked into luxury vinyl plank flooring was more than a decade ago, you might want to take another glance! Huge leaps in imaging and printing technology have allowed this material to shine as an affordable replacement for more expensive materials; one that mimics those same materials so well, that even the experts have a rough time telling them apart!

Luxury vinyl plank flooring is also one of the more durable materials out there, thanks to the extremely tough protective wear layers that are applied to the top of the flooring. These layers slough off footfalls and sharp blows, like rainwater falling on concrete. So, you don't have to worry about unsightly dents and dings spoiling the beautiful look of your floors!
