Is luxury vinyl flooring durable?

Luxury vinyl (LVF)is so durable and waterproof that it is considered one of the best pet-and-kid-friendly floorings.

Waterproof durability

This 100% waterproof product is multi-layered and five times thicker than the original vinyl. It also comes with a thick, top, transparent melamine wear layer that protects the floor from dents, scratches, and scuffs and is finished with a clear urethane coating; the finish adds both extra shine and protection.

LVF stands up to wear, including dropped pots and pans, pull toys, long and untrimmed pet nails, and more. It's also made of waterproof materials, so it is impervious from bottom to top, meaning it can be submerged or spilled on; it just needs a quick wipe, and it's okay.

Fashionable function

LVF offers nature-inspired, true-to-life echoes of wood, stone, or tile taken with digital photography. The images are clear and accurate with wormholes, knots, swirls, grains, and veining variations, while colors and patterns pop with vibrancy.

As opposed to being one big sheet, LVF can be cut into planks, called luxury vinyl plank or LVP, so realistic people often have trouble telling it from genuine wood. The other design option is to cut it into a square, tile-sized pieces that can be used with or without grout, called luxury vinyl tile or LVT. Many feel the extra seams add to the realism, while plank, mainly associated with hardwood, is sometimes used to mimic stone because of the larger format and fewer seams. All this for an affordable price!

It's also easy to care for with only a regular sweeping and periodic mopping required. Avoid wavy, shine-promoting cleaners, as they damage the finish and dull the floor. Installation can be simple, especially when a floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, and hover over the subfloor without nails or glue.
