Some types of flooring seem mysterious. What exactly is laminate flooring? How about travertine? At Floor Coverings International of Asheville, we want to help answer all of your flooring questions. Today, we are here to talk about what makes Luxury Vinyl Tile so “luxurious.” There are a number of impressive things about this type of flooring that distinguish it from its normal counterpart. Read on to discover all of the great things about this high quality flooring option and why you should choose it for your home!
Manufacturers of today have found a way to recreate the beauty and complexity of natural stone and wood on a piece of tile. This is one of the main reasons that people love luxury vinyl flooring. They can get the beauty of a natural floor without the expense, maintenance and long-term commitment of hardwood or natural stone tile.
Unlike traditional vinyl, luxury vinyl tile can be bought in a plank shape to simulate wood. Traditionally, vinyl tile comes in a square shape. You can choose from a variety of lengths and widths to find the perfect option for your home.
Relative to more permanent flooring options, the installation process for luxury vinyl tile is a breeze. The installation time is much shorter, and you don’t have to worry about stains sealing for an extended period of time or a multi-week project.
Though the general composition of luxury vinyl is not much different than original tile, luxury vinyl is made thicker so that it will last longer. This is another element that we at Floor Coverings International of Asheville think makes luxury vinyl such a versatile and competitive flooring option. It can last almost as long as the flooring types it imitates thanks to its thick backing layer and protective top layers.
