Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
At Bishops Carpet One Floor & Home in Ithaca, NY, we are proud to be a part of an innovative industry and carry a wide selection of luxury vinyl brands and products. Luxury vinyl may not be something new, but the technology being used to make it definitely is. It is now more durable, better looking, and makes your home more functional than ever.
Luxury vinyl is an alternative to hardwood, stone, and tile flooring. Luxury vinyl is known to be more durable, resistant, and more forgiving underfoot. With luxury vinyl you can have the look of hardwood or tile anywhere in your home without worrying about upkeep or accidental messes.
Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl is constructed of multiple layers that all play a role in its functionality. The wear layer is where luxury vinyl gets its durability and resistance to scratching and even water. The core of luxury vinyl is where it gets its stability and in some cases waterproof qualities. The bottom layer is capable of sound absorption and is where luxury vinyl gets it “cushioned” feel when you walk on it.
Luxury vinyl comes in two main options, luxury vinyl planks and luxury vinyl tiles.
Vinyl tile flooring is a durable alternative to ceramic and porcelain tile.
Vinyl plank flooring is a durable alternative to hardwood and laminate.
Sheet vinyl flooring limits the seams on the surface of the floor.
