When luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is cut into square, groutable, tile-sized pieces, it is called LVT flooring.  Meant to echo tile and stone, many feel the extra seams of this cut add to the realism; some take it even further by using grout. LVF is also cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards called vinyl plank flooring (LVP).

Can you use it in the bathroom?

Absolutely, yes! This is a 100% waterproof product, constructed entirely of watertight materials.  As a result, it can be spilled on or submerged, and it is especially appropriate for high moisture areas, such as the bathroom. However, LVT is such a stylish flooring that we see it in every room in the house.

LVF follows industry trends. In tile, matte and soft, subtle colors are in this year, as are bright whites, earth tones, metallics, and textured and sculpted appearances, such as marble effects.  Patterns are exceptionally brilliant, whether you’re looking for graphics, chevrons, herringbones, or anything else. If stone is your passion, you’ll be able to find marble, granite, limestone, slate, terrazzo, and quartz.

Does it look like the real thing?

Images are created with 3D photography, so they’re clear and accurate, showing pattern intricacies, veining variations, knots, grains, etc.  Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured features. All are available in matte, gloss, and high gloss colors. Sometimes even the flooring experts have a difficult time telling in from the real thing.

LVF is durable with a top, clear melamine sheet that guards the floor against scratches and scuffs.  It’s also low maintenance, needing only a daily sweeping and weekly mopping; installation can be a fast and straightforward floating floor where the pieces click, mat, and hover over a clean, dry, and level subfloor.
