Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) adds immense style to your home, even when you're on a budget. This adds visual appeal and sets the design tone of the entire house. The floor is also one of the first things prospective buyers look at; nothing will make them run faster than a scuffed, scratched, torn, and worn floor.

Let us tell you more and show you samples if you are looking for luxury vinyl in Spencerport, NY.

Installation is as important as the product

This is a floating floor technique, where the pieces click together to form a mat and then hover over the existing subfloor. While it’s fast and uncomplicated, care needs to be taken to align seams properly and place planks and other pieces correctly. The subfloor needs to be level; otherwise, you’ll end up with a crooked subfloor. Make sure there are no nails or imperfections that can tear the material or telegraph through to the surface floor.

Luxury doesn’t necessarily mean expensive

Tight budgets require reasonable alternatives. Luxury vinyl is a true-to-life mimic of wood, tile, or stone with an almost unlimited number of colors, patterns, and designs, many of which follow the current trends. It can also be cut into planks to mimic hardwood (LVP) or groutable square tile-sized pieces that are long-lasting LVT.

While vinyl was always praised for being waterproof, durable, and easy to maintain, technology has given us many design options: Images are now taken with 3D photography to give us clarity, accuracy, and vibrancy. Embossing adds depth, dimension, and textured appearances, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, or distressed.

Your floor will look like it came right out of the design pages; for the best vinyl plank flooring make sure you use one of the matte or gloss finishes.

Think of the floor as a blank canvas

One of the design mottos is: "Design from the floor up!" Nothing needs to be a perfect match, but it all needs to coordinate. Watch especially for transition spaces, those areas between rooms. This is especially important in today's open-plan layouts.
