What is luxury vinyl flooring made of?

Luxury vinyl flooring comprises 6 to 8 structural layers with a PVC backing. That makes it five times thicker than the original product.

One of those layers is a transparent and strong wear sheet over the printed design sheet. It protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents.

At the top is another layer, a clear urethane finish that adds extra strength and shine.

Enjoy luxury vinyl flooring looks

Unlike sheet vinyl, this is cut to echo hardwood floorboards or square, tile-sized pieces. This gives the consumer much flexibility, such as using vinyl plank flooring where genuine wood isn't recommended.

The tiles are used mainly for stone and ceramic tile looks. However, some also use them for wood to mimic wood-look tiles.

Affordable style

Although a premium product, luxury vinyl flooring is very affordable. There's a high-end look of nature-inspired, true-to-life wood, stone, and tile images. The floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks.

Some products include Treasured Grove Driftwood by Karastan-LuxeCraft or Tile Options Benning by Pergo Extreme.

Other luxury vinyl flooring benefits include:

  1. Low maintenance. You only need regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep your LVP or LVT flooring in Naples, FL, in top shape.
Use only a manufacturer-approved cleaner and avoid wax shine-promoting products. They destroy the finish and dull the floors.
  1. Uncomplicated installation. The floors can be glued down or installed to float. When floors float, the pieces click together to mat and hover over the subfloor without adhesives.
