The reason it's finally time to pay attention to luxury vinyl flooring.

If you haven't had to do a renovation or redesign project in a while, you might be surprised by the rise of high-end vinyl flooring. Luxurious vinyl was never meant to be mixed with vinyl at all. Vinyl flooring has long been associated with cheap renovation projects and tasteless patterns and colors that don't look good. There are now luxury vinyl floors all over the place, even in multimillion-dollar homes. The truth is that in the last decade, the quality of luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile has gone up a lot, and the look of this flooring has made it popular with both homeowners and designers.


In the last few years, printing technology has made it easier to make LVT/LVP flooring that looks like real wood or stone. It's gotten to the point where it can be hard to tell vinyl from real wood or tile flooring. Luxury vinyl flooring comes in patterns that look like wood, like teak, maple, or walnut, as well as stone, like slate or marble.


With today's busy families, one of the main issues with natural hardwood and tile flooring is that they aren't very durable. LVT/LVP flooring, on the other hand, doesn't have to be a worry about this. In high-traffic areas, vinyl is water and stain-resistant, long-lasting, and very durable.

The quality of the work

Many vinyl floors that look like stone actually have natural minerals in them. This helps break down the idea that vinyl is cheap and low-quality. Some vinyl is even made up of up to 75% natural limestone and 25% vinyl. Some of the LVT floors need grout to hold the tiles together because they look so real.

Pieces that are made of natural shapes.

Also, the LVT pieces have a more realistic shape because they are made with natural materials. It's more common for LVT/LVP flooring to come in plank or tile-shaped pieces than for traditional vinyl flooring to come in large sheets and be cut down to fit a room.


The price point that you want

The price of luxury vinyl flooring in San Diego is a good deal for most people, and it usually runs from about $2 per square foot to about $6 per square foot for high-end flooring. The thickness of vinyl flooring is a factor in the quality, as well as other things. If you want a floor that is comfortable and durable, but also costs a lot, you should look for LVT/LVP flooring that is about 10 millimeters to 12 millimeters thick.

You can see right away that luxury vinyl flooring isn't the same as vinyl you used to play with when you were younger. There are a lot of good reasons to think about LVP/LVT flooring for your next flooring project, from the quality of vinyl flooring to the variety of styles and colors that are available.
