Here are things to consider as you shop for luxury vinyl flooring.
There are several types of vinyl flooring to choose from.
All types of luxury vinyl floors can resist scratches, dents, moisture, but only select options are fully waterproof.
Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring works hard to trap any unexpected splashes at the floor’s surface, where it can be swept clear with a paper towel. This hardworking tile can go directly over different subfloors, and style options run the full gamut from trendy to traditional.
Waterproof versions of your favorite vinyl options look and feel like their moisture-resistant counterparts: the differences lie in hidden features. With its sturdy cork backing and absorbent core, you can rest assured that even the worst spills won't stain or damage your floor or subfloor.
Waterproof vinyl flooring is especially popular for kitchen & bathroom projects.
Parents and pet owners take note: you’ll love these realistic visuals in the living room, and you won’t have to worry about any accidents the day might bring.
Vinyl flooring is a floor for all seasons- literally. Use it in all your interior spaces, whether residential or commercial.
The installation process, itself, is much simpler than installing actual hardwood, since your luxury vinyl requires neither nails nor adhesives.

Although vinyl flooring is easy to install than other flooring types, there are still necessary steps needed to ensure a perfect result.
This is where it truly pays to do your research first. Preparing your room is an essential step that needs to be done before you can start laying down luxury vinyl planks or tiles. If your subfloor is concrete, you’ll want to examine the area for large holes or cracks, or other uneven areas.
Although it’s okay to install new flooring over existing vinyl, make sure that the old flooring is intact before moving forward. Dents or holes in concrete can be leveled out using a trowel. Lastly, make sure your subfloor is clean and dry before installation begins.
