Made for easy living, luxury vinyl flooring shows us that having a beautiful home doesn’t have to come at a hefty cost. Modern engineered floors are light years away from yesterday’s drab sheet vinyl. Today, most customers don’t realize luxury vinyl flooring, or LV, isn’t natural flooring when they walk on it. Wood vinyl offers an authentic hardwood appearance, while vinyl tiles gorgeously emulate ceramic, porcelain, and stone. At McCalls Carpet One Floor & Home in Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee, we love vinyl flooring for its enduring performance and simple care requirements.
Yes, there are several distinctive forms of luxury vinyl flooring available, so you can easily customize your floors to fit your look. While there are truly no wrong choices when it comes to this type of floor, there are some distinctive traits to consider as you navigate the flooring world. The three main types are sheet, vinyl floor tiles, and vinyl planks.
Sheet vinyl flooring is made from waterproof material and comes in, you guessed it, long, solid sheets of vinyl. Like all vinyl flooring, sheet vinyl is designed to replicate the look of natural tile and hardwood in a more durable and affordable form. Sheet vinyl is great in both small and large rooms when you want fewer joints and seams which prevents water from getting underneath to the subfloor.
Engineered for breathtaking visuals and countless customization possibilities, luxury vinyl tile is a timely take on an old classic. It looks and functions much like a traditional ceramic or porcelain tile, but with its comfortable feel, synthetic endurance, and convenient potential, luxury vinyl tile takes it a step further. Luxury vinyl tile resists moisture, damage, and wear and tear. Best of all: this tile doesn’t need grouting to stay in place.
For those who love the look of natural hardwood, but balk at its limitations and price range, luxury vinyl plank is a pleasing alternative. It resists moisture, won’t warp or shrink in humidity, and doesn’t ever need to be refinished. Luxury vinyl plank can be customized to form your favorite hardwood compositions but can boldly go where the real deal cannot: bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, and even in finished basements.
The best vinyl flooring will give you superior water protection. Some options are water-resistant, while others are fully waterproof. Waterproof vinyl flooring can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where moisture, spills, or pet accidents are an issue making it a favorite one of our kid-friendly and pet-friendly flooring options. Waterproof flooring, like luxury vinyl planks and tiles, won’t warp in humidity or allow leaks to reach the subfloor. This makes vinyl hardwood flooring a great choice if you love natural wood flooring looks in high-moisture settings.
Offering up thousands of choices for your home or business, luxury vinyl truly represents endless possibilities. A floor for all your favorite interior spaces, LV flooring works just about anywhere. With a durable coating to ward off moisture, scuffs, and scratches, vinyl is a great option for high-traffic areas. In addition, there are many different colors, styles, and patterns to choose from, making it easy to bring your vision to reality. We also offer commercial-grade options for various business settings.
The luxury vinyl flooring installation process is, overall, much simpler than other installations. Still, there are some things you should do to prepare your space beforehand and ensure the best results possible. Before your flooring can be installed, it’s important to pay careful attention to the state of your subfloors. For spaces with a concrete subfloor, it is very important to start by taking a careful inventory of your base level. You will want to watch out for any uneven areas, holes, or cracks. Although vinyl tile and plank can be installed over an existing subfloor, it’s best to level out your space with a trowel before laying your flooring. You will also want to make sure your prepped subfloor is fully clean and dry before installation gets underway.
