What Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Luxury vinyl flooring, which is often referred to simply as LVT flooring, is categorized as a more durable alternative to hardwood and stone. Whereas hardwood and stone floors are made from natural materials, luxury vinyl has a synthentic. It's made from layers that each serve a special purpose. The top layer, for example, will resist scratches and scuffs, while the bottom support layers provide exceptional dimensional stability. With this layered construction, luxury vinyl can handle heavy foot traffic and moisture better than wood, stone, and even laminate.
In addition, many high-end luxury vinyl flooring options have waterproof cores. These floors are considered 100% waterproof, so they can be installed in kitchens and bathrooms. Luxury vinyl floors with waterproof cores have a rather rigid and thick construction, so they offer more realistic wood and stone looks as well.

Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl flooring is specially made to look (and feel) exactly like natural stone and wood. You can choose luxury vinyl tiles or luxury vinyl planks.
Because of its synthetic construction, luxury vinyl is considered water resistant. Some options have waterproof cores, so they can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and anywhere else where moisture is an issue.
Luxury vinyl floors have durable top layers, called wear layers, that are unlikely to scratch and scuff. So, even in homes with children and pets, luxury vinyl flooring will handle everyday wear and tear.
