Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury vinyl has transformed in recent years as imaging and embossing techniques have improved. It’s currently one of the fastest growing flooring categories on the market and for good reason. Luxury vinyl is highly durable, stain-resistant, and isn’t easily damaged by moisture. It’s now available in both plank and tile formats that gorgeously imitate the natural appearance of hardwood and authentic tile. Luxury vinyl tile is perfect for anyone interested in the look of real tile without the installation process, upkeep, and cost. Cove Carpet One Floor & Home carries a wide selection of luxury vinyl tile, and our local experts can guide you through the process of finding the perfect luxury vinyl tile for your home.
Today’s luxury vinyl tiles are made in a layered construction that includes a high-performance wear layer on top. The layer is extremely tough and resistant to stains, scratches, dents, and scuffs. Beneath it is a decorative veneer. It’s created using high-definition photography and 3D printing that provides both the feel and look of real floors. Modern consumers often have difficulty telling the difference between luxury vinyl and natural floors.
Beneath the top two layers, luxury vinyl has a core and backing that creates cushioning and stability. This makes it possible to install luxury vinyl tiles in kitchens, bathrooms, entryways, and in any high-moisture area because the floor won’t buckle, warp, or cup in response to spills and changes in humidity and moisture.
Luxury vinyl tiles are softer and warmer underfoot than natural tile. This makes them more comfortable to stand on for long periods and they won’t chip or break if objects fall on them. They’re also simple and quick to install and are generally much less expensive than authentic tile.
Luxury vinyl is also versatile and can be put in as a floating floor or glued-down. It can essentially go into any room of the home where the subfloor if flat, clean, and dry. Our local professionals are happy to help you determine which rooms in your home are best suited for a luxury vinyl tile installation.
