Many of us have heard the phrase, “Design from the floor up”, that’s because it’s an important part of your house. And now with advanced technology, there’s absolutely no reason you can’t enjoy a stylish, highly designed home on any budget.

That’s one reason you want luxury vinyl flooring (also known as LVF).

LVF comes in two forms: Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). LVT is cut into tile-sized pieces, and they mimic the look of natural stone or ceramic tile.

LVP is cut into planks to look like wood, as well as like stone or tile. You can select from an assortment of species, colors, designs and textures.

Add to that the material’s waterproof features and ease of installation, and it’s no wonder that this flooring is quickly becoming such a popular option.

4 More Facts About Luxury Vinyl Flooring

1. Textures add to the realism: Let’s dive a little deeper into this subject, because textures add a tactile dimension that creates terrific undertones. With LVF, you can get a floor that looks wire-brushed, hand-scraped or embossed, making it suitable for any style, from rustic to traditional.

Different levels of embossing are available to give this flooring a smooth appearance, such as marble or granite, or a heavier one, such as a clefted or rough stone look.

2. It’s suitable for installation in any room, and that includes the bedroom. With all of the designs, you can add elegance to your bedroom floor--or foyer, library, living room, kitchen, etc.

3. It’s kid-friendly. This is a fact: Children play rough, use pull-toys, drop and spill things. It’s so durable that nothing seems to faze it and, as a result, LVF is often recommended for the playroom. Spills wipe right up, and markers and crayons easily wipe off.

4. It’s pet-friendly. Your pet will have no trouble walking or lying on it because it’s comfortable and warm. This is often a major concern for those with senior pets. It also stands up to accidents and spills from water dishes. LVF provides good traction too; that means your pet won’t slip, slide and hurt herself. Actually, that’s even more of a concern among pet owners than accidents.
