High-Quality Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Carpet One Floor & Home in Tucson offers one of the area's best selections of luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl, because of its combination of style and performance, has quickly become one of the most popular flooring choices for home settings.
What Is Luxury Vinyl?
Luxury vinyl flooring is primarily positioned as a more durable alternative to hardwood, laminate, and stone. It, for example, looks exactly like hardwood, laminate, and stone, but it features a totally synthetic construction. With this synthetic construction, luxury vinyl will resist scratches and scuffs, and it can also handle moisture. So, luxury vinyl can be installed in places where hardwood, laminate, and stone cannot be installed.
For real wood looks, be sure to choose vinyl plank flooring, but for stone looks, vinyl tile flooring is the better option.
Waterproof Core Luxury Vinyl
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring available, but nowadays the most popular options have strong waterproof cores. These cores provide exceptional dimensional stability to the vinyl planks and tiles, so they will not expand or contract when exposed to moisture. At the same time, with these cores, the planks and tiles will not crack or collapse under heavy traffic.
We have a few different waterproof core luxury vinyl options, including COREtec Plus, Karndean, and Armstrong Luxe.
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.
Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
What homeowners love about luxury vinyl flooring is its natural appearance. Luxury vinyl is specially-made to look exactly like real wood and stone, and many high-end options even offer authentic surface textures. So, if you really want to add the natural beauty of wood or stone to your kitchen or bathroom, luxury vinyl is the best flooring option.
Because luxury vinyl flooring has a synthetic construction, it can handle moisture. Any spill can simply be wiped from the surface without long-term consequences. Also, certain luxury vinyl floors have strong waterproof cores, so the planks and tiles will never swell when exposed to moisture. Luxury vinyl can therefore be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
In homes with children and pets, hardwood, laminate, and stone can, and probably will, scratch and chip. But, luxury vinyl flooring features an ultra-durable top layer, so you won't have to worry about everyday wear and tear!
