When you think of vinyl flooring, our minds often think of that shiny sheet vinyl that once was the staple for flooring in most kitchens and baths in America. Today, that is no longer true. Kitchens and baths have become the focal point for style and design for today’s homeowner, and the flooring options available today reflect that trend. At all Martin’s Flooring locations, you will find a wide variety of Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank choices available.
Luxury Vinyl Tile and Luxury Vinyl Planks are exploding in popularity and becoming the product of choice for kitchens, baths, basements, and even whole houses. On the commercial side, Luxury Vinyl Tile, LVT as it is known, is becoming more and more prevalent in offices and health facilities around the area. It comes in wood and stone looks with colors and textures that can even fool the eye once it has been installed. With the incorporation of current digital imaging technology, many luxury vinyl tile products actually look almost indistinguishable from real tile or wood flooring. Its popularity has grown almost 14% over last year, according to Floor Daily.
Luxury Vinyl Tile is a waterproof alternative for those who are looking for a wood look in their kitchens or baths. It stands up to spills and large pets better than hardwood or laminate. LVT also offers superior sound absorption. It feels more solid and quiet under foot.
With all its features, why are people choosing Luxury Vinyl Tile and Luxury Vinyl Planks more often today? It comes down to appearance. Many of the tile-look products can be grouted to make it look even more like ceramic or stone. The wood-look planks feature rich colors and textures giving it the look of real hardwood.
