Throw your worries away with luxury vinyl flooring (LVF)

Two big consumer concerns for flooring are waterproofing capabilities and durability. LVF answers them both; it is completely impervious to liquid and can withstand the heaviest foot traffic. It’s also stylish and affordable, being a terrific alternative to wood, stone, or tile. This is one of the most versatile flooring materials around, appropriate for any room in the house.

Style without sacrificing savings

When you walk into Urban Floors, your luxury vinyl flooring retailer, you will be pleasantly amazed at the almost unlimited number of patterns, colors, and designs. The true-to-life images of wood, tile, or stone are taken with 3D photography. They are vibrant, remarkably clear, and you will see a lot of visual design interest: knots, wormholes, grains, swirls, and color/veining variations. Colors pop and all the designs follow current industry trends, whether you want gray or whitewashed floors, a marble or granite bath, or a colorful retro-style playroom.

Embossing gives the floor depth, dimension, and textured appearances. Textures are trending this year, especially the wire-brushed look so you can have that, as well as hand-scraped, weathered or distressed, all finished with a matte, gloss, or high gloss surfaces.

An interesting design option is that LVF can also be cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards, or square, groutable pieces to mimic tiles. Many feel the extra seams of a cut add to the realism, and some take it further by also using grout. Planks are typically associated with hardwood looks, but some also use it for stone appearances, as the large format and few seams can give it the more continuous look of a quarried slab.

Durability and easy care

Many, especially those with large families and pets, need a floor that can withstand wear. The vinyl itself is durable, but LVF has a thick clear melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. It also helps with the waterproofing, as it keeps spills from absorbing. They sit at the top waiting to be wiped off.

All maintenance requires is regular sweeping and a periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Installation is the uncomplicated floating floor where the pieces click together to form a mat, then hover over an existing subfloor. Subfloors need only be clean, dry, and level, but the installer will sometimes need to sand to smooth them out; otherwise, imperfections affect the surface floor.
