Vinyl flooring has always had a reputation as a low-cost, easily maintained floor covering. However, vinyl of old had its limitations, including the fact that it very obviously looked like vinyl. Fortunately, this low-maintenance option has come a long way since your grandmother’s sheet vinyl flooring. Today’s luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, can be made to mimic nearly any other type of high-end flooring you desire, such as hardwood and natural stone. Here are some of our top reasons to choose luxury vinyl tile for your Vadnais Heights home:
Luxury vinyl tile comes in a wide range of styles. It’s created using a realistic photo process that makes it look just like other types of flooring. Once installed, your guests might not even notice that it is vinyl and not true hardwood, ceramic, or stone.
Still one of the cheapest options on the flooring market, vinyl flooring – even luxury vinyl flooring – typically costs less than real natural stone or hardwood. It’s easy to install, as well, saving you costs in labor and materials.
It’s Easy to Maintain
Resistant to stains, luxury vinyl tile is ridiculously easy to clean. Simply wipe it with a damp mop and you’re done. No special soaps or waxes are required to keep your luxury vinyl floor looking shiny and new.
Factors to Consider
Like all flooring types, vinyl has its disadvantages. Though it is durable, it will not usually last as long as tough natural stone or resilient hardwood. Some types of luxury vinyl flooring may also contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which could be a concern for households with small children.
