When it comes to flooring options, homeowners typically want something that is durable, cost-friendly and will look great in their home. Because of this, vinyl flooring has seen a rise in popularity as being just that. However, when it comes to getting the look and feel of hardwood, and with all the same benefits, luxury vinyl plank is the winner. It also comes in a wide option of shades, textures, and can replicate any wood type.
Laminate flooring used to be the closest way to get that real-wood look. The problem, however, is that laminate is not totally waterproof, so it’s best left out of the kitchen and bathrooms. With luxury vinyl, this isn’t a problem, as it is completely waterproof. As such, it isn’t limited from any rooms.
Floors2You in Edmonton shares some more of the ways that luxury vinyl plank is the new perfect pick for any or every room in your home:
Choosing the right floor for your kitchen usually means also taking a lot of factors into consideration. From a practical angle, if the kitchen is a popular gathering space, you need to consider a high-traffic resistant floor. If you have children or pets, a floor that is resistant to spills and scratches needs to be considered. Visuals are also important to consider, as a nice-looking floor does a lot to complete a room.
While hardwood and tile are two of the most popular kitchen floors, they do require careful care and maintenance. Luxury vinyl, however, is a perfect solution. It’s completely resistant to scratches and dents, and is totally waterproof, so any spills or drops won’t cause damage. Plus, with its ability to mimic a hardwood floor, you can still get the look and feel without the maintenance or expense.
Picking the right floor for your laundry room is particularly challenging because of all the potential sources that could cause damage. Heavy appliances can dent the floor, any spills, such as bleach, will stain the floor and leaks risk water damage or mold growth. Bathroom flooring also has to be carefully considered for water and moisture resistance. There’s also the visual appeal to consider, especially in a master bathroom.
Vinyl flooring in either room is recommended because of its moisture, stain and damage resistant qualities. Vinyl flooring also comes as tile, so it can still be used in your laundry room if you don’t want a hardwood look. In the bathrooms though, hardwood flooring can easily create a dramatic and sleek look. It creates a perfect floor for a feature master bathroom or a visually aesthetic upgrade for your other bathrooms. Find more inspiration and ideas for luxury vinyl floor bathroom designs.
Traditionally, bedroom flooring is always installed with carpets, simply because it is soft and warmer on the feet. The only downside is that carpets require regular cleaning and can trap dust and hair, which could trigger allergies. Next to carpeting, hardwood flooring is the second favourite option. It creates an impressive and sleek look and doesn’t trap dust. The downside to this though, is hardwood also requires plenty of maintenance, and can be expensive to install.
Once again, luxury vinyl offers the sleek hardwood look without the cost or maintenance. Thanks to its durability, it can also easily be an option for kids’ rooms, without risking scratches or damage. If you also put luxury vinyl in the master bathroom, it will create a flowing and dramatic look to your floor and room.
