In the last few years, vinyl flooring has evolved more than any other type of flooring. Originally used in commercial spaces, vinyl is making its way into more homes now than ever before. The reason why? Consumers are enamored with its sheer beauty, uncanny resemblence to hardwood, ease of installation, and lower price point. So, voila! Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVT Flooring) is now the leading trend in the flooring industry today and in highest demand.

According to Floor Covering Weekly in a 2019 article, "LVT of today is built to endure the rigors of everyday living, guarding against worries such as dents, scratches and water, among others. In addition, these products offer the visual appeal of traditional hardwood or tile but will not fade over time."

Advancing technology has given vinyl manufacturers the ability to develop unbelievably realistic tiles and planks mimicking natural looks, such as wood and stone. These stunning designs rival hardwood and LVT often wins because of its diverse designs and incredible endurance. Certain LVT styles are waterproof, making your flooring choice a smart one. Let’s be honest, hardwood is an expensive investment, not only upfront, but also long-term, as the damage that can be done from leaks, pets, and kiddos is inevitable.
