Often, when people think about luxury vinyl
, what comes to mind is plank flooring that is designed to look like hardwood. Yet, some options are designed to look like ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles as well. These are every bit as attractive and durable as their plank cousins, yet they open the door to so many more design options.
One of the attractions of this product is that LVT is a truly waterproof flooring system. Water does not harm the materials, cause them to warp, swell, fade, stain, or lose their structural integrity. Also, water will not pass through this floor and affect your subfloor. This applies whether there is just a little moisture from a splash or a spill or if there is a lot of moisture as if the river otters from the zoo have come to play.
This feature makes luxury vinyl tile an excellent choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways, but its applications do not end there. If you want more of a tile look for the basement or other living spaces, LVT can provide that also, while giving you a softer floor to walk upon. With the various styles and colors that are available, you can create both a fashionable and also durable surface for every area of your home.
