Types of Vinyl Flooring


Vinyl flooring comes in both planks and tiles. Both vinyl flooring types perform similarly, so select a product that best fits your aesthetic intentions. Luxury vinyl plank offers the most realistic hardwood textures, while luxury vinyl tile perfectly replicates ceramic tile or stone looks. Both options are significantly more affordable than the mediums they’re designed to impersonate, and both will resist everyday wear, moisture, and scratches.


Luxury vinyl plank flooring has many advantages. It’s indistinguishable from real hardwood for most consumers. In fact, if you’ve stepped into an apartment, restaurant, cafe, or downtown business recently, you’ve probably walked on luxury vinyl without realizing it wasn’t real hardwood, tile, or stone. Luxury vinyl plank is built using a durable, layered construction that isn’t ruined by humidity or moisture. The wear layer of LVP flooring resists scratches and scuffs from shoes, dirt, and pets. Maintenance is simple and requires minimal effort.


Tile has been a preferred flooring material for hundreds of years- so this familiar shape and format is hardly a new concept. While traditional tile is made from materials like ceramic or porcelain, luxury vinyl tile is manufactured in synthetic layers. The result is water resistant- sometimes even waterproof – flooring that looks and feels remarkably like other types of tiles and isn’t affected by humidity.


Easy to care for, simple to install, and negating any need for exasperating grout, luxury vinyl tile can be installed over your existing concrete subfloor. Its care requirements are truly at the bare minimum: occasional light mopping or sweeping is really all your luxury vinyl tile floor needs to stay its best. With so much to offer, it’s no wonder that luxury vinyl tile continues to increase in popularity - especially in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens.


Is Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?


Although every type of vinyl flooring can resist moisture, specific options further take this effort. Our 100% waterproof vinyl flooring selection calls on several hidden weapons to fight everyday accidents. Its watertight core, transparent and protective topcoat and cork backing create a reliable barrier that prevents even severe splashes from reaching your subfloor.


Waterproof vinyl flooring has a watertight seal that keeps liquids on the surface and a core that is made specifically to handle liquid mishaps. When installed, the planks fit perfectly together to keep water from falling in between the seams of the floors, so you won’t have to worry about water beneath the surface.


The advantage of waterproof vinyl is that it can be installed throughout your home. Rather than changing flooring from one room to the next, you can truly create a whole-home solution with waterproof vinyl. From living rooms to bedrooms, playrooms, offices, entryways, kitchens, and even laundry rooms, you can expect that waterproof vinyl will suit nearly any space.


Where Can Vinyl Flooring Be Installed?


Vinyl flooring currently comes in hundreds of different options, making it easy to fit your interiors in its entirety. Choose waterproof versions of your favorite designs if you’re seeking kitchen or bathroom flooring. These luxury vinyl types are a tremendous all-over option if you have kids or pets in the home.

Vinyl plank and tile was crafted with easy installation in mind and many can be locked and clicked into place. Still, proper preparation is essential prior to installation. Whether you opt to go it alone, or enlist the help of our installation team, it’s important to clean your subfloors carefully before applying new flooring. You’ll want to take care to remove all lingering traces of old flooring, debris, and adhesives.
