Luxury vinyl flooring is trendy and ultra-durable because of its synthetic construction. Today, it’s one of the fastest-growing flooring categories on the market. This is thanks to modern imaging technology, which has given it stunning hardwood, tile, and stone looks. Additionally, these floors resist surface scratches and scuffs, and they can also handle spills and stains. At Carpet One Floor & Home in Huntsville, Alabama, we’re proud to bring you the latest innovations in flooring. We have one of the best luxury vinyl selections in the region and even carry pet-friendly and kid-friendly flooring options for families and pet owners.
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring options today, including luxury vinyl tiles and luxury vinyl planks. Both vinyl tiles and wood look planks feature a solid backing with a high-quality image layer to replicate the appearance of their authentic counterparts. Vinyl floors also have a protective wear layer that keeps the floor free of scratches, scuffs, and stains.
Luxury vinyl tile has many, many pros, and few cons to speak of. Luxury vinyl tiles are made to look like porcelain, ceramic, and stone but feel warmer and more comfortable. Easily installed and readily customized, luxury vinyl tile lets you take the wheel. Best of all: you won’t need grout or other complex adhesives to create your tile installation, which can be placed directly over nearly any existing subfloor. Luxury vinyl tile is incredibly eclectic and can even be used as wall panels.
Luxury vinyl plank flooring combines the beauty and character of hardwood with the affordability and durability of vinyl flooring. Unlike sheet vinyl of the past, they are cut into square modules that are installed individually. These wood look planks look like hardwood but perform better in humid areas.
One of the main advantages of luxury vinyl is that it’s water-repellent. Some vinyl products are water-resistant, while others are 100% waterproof. Waterproof vinyl floors will keep your subfloor safe from moisture damage. They’re also easy to clean and stain-resistant, which is why luxury vinyl is one of our favorite waterproof flooring options. Waterproof vinyl floors typically have a rigid core structure that stabilizes each plank or tile so that it doesn’t swell and shrink in changing humidity levels. We also install our waterproof floors with leak-tight seams that keep moisture from seeping between the vinyl planks and tiles. Additionally, a fast-drying, non-porous surface makes spills easy to clean and resists stains. This makes luxury vinyl flooring a great choice for your home’s high-splash zones, like kitchens and bathrooms
Luxury vinyl is suitable for pretty much any area in the home. It can withstand the foot traffic you typically see in living rooms, it is comfortable enough for bedrooms, and it can handle the moisture you’d expect in kitchens and bathrooms. In high-traffic or high-moisture areas, we recommend a durable, waterproof luxury vinyl floor with a thick wear layer. Hardwood vinyl planks are especially useful because they can be installed where real wood can’t, such as in humid environments. We also have commercial vinyl floors for a variety of business settings.
You’ve carefully selected the perfect luxury vinyl product: now what? Made for easy installation, this flooring requires no nails and no grout. Still, it makes sense to carefully prepare your space before installation gets underway. You’ll want to start with a very thorough cleaning, first removing all traces of the old flooring. From there, we recommend scrubbing your wood or cement subfloor, while paying careful attention to this important foundation. As your subfloor dries, are there cracks or imperfections present? If so, those cracks should be filled in, and uneven areas leveled to perfection before you begin laying plank or tile.
Our top-selling brands include COREtec, Dixie, Baroque, and Karndean. In addition, we also carry exclusive collections that you’ll only find at Carpet One stores, such as Invincible™ and VERÓSTONE™.
