Vinyl. It’s one of those words that means something different to each person. To music lovers, they hear the world ‘vinyl,’ and they think of records. To others, they think of the linoleum (also known as laminate or vinyl flooring) grandma had on the floor of her kitchen when they were growing up.
Like many things improve with age and technology, so has vinyl flooring. Long gone are the days when you could only get a few different patterns with one texture. Today, vinyl is so much more. You can get vinyl planks that look and feel like wood, vinyl squares that could convince you that it’s real stone tile, or good old sheet linoleum that looks more convincing than ever!
We know what your thinking – you swore off vinyl. In your mind, it looks weird, it feels weird, and it already had its time in the limelight, but allow us to introduce you to Luxury Vinyl Flooring:
- Quality: You may have experience with vinyl flooring tearing or scratching. Luxury Vinyl Flooring has minimized these effects by offering thicker materials that stand up better to the elements. Generally, it’s waterproof, pet proof, and kid proof. Some varieties even come with technologies like Rigid Core, which helps it stand up to heavy traffic and hide imperfections like an uneven subfloor.
- Variety: Like we said earlier, vinyl flooring comes in many shapes, sizes, and textures these days. If you’re looking for a unique, high-quality flooring that will match your space perfectly, Luxury Vinyl Flooring likely has what your heart desires.
- Price: While traditional vinyl flooring ranges from $.50-$2.00 per square foot, Luxury Vinyl Flooring can cost anywhere from $2.00-$5.00 per square foot, depending on the manufacturer, quality, and style you choose. Despite that range, Luxury Vinyl Flooring is still one of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade the flooring in your space.
