What Are the Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
In terms of styles and durability, vinyl flooring has come a long way over the past decade or so. Vinyl flooring is the perfect option if you are looking for a floor that looks authentic, and is incredibly durable. Bloomington Carpet One Floor & Home can help you find a new floor for your home, and our experts have an eye for design to help you choose the perfect look. Below we go over the differences and benefits of different types of vinyl flooring including sheet vinyl, WPC, and rigid core.
Sheet Vinyl Flooring
For the most part sheet vinyl has retained its same durability, but advances in digital printing technology have made sheet vinyl look more realistic than ever with high-definition digitally printed images of wood and stone. Sheet vinyl comes in 12-foot-wide or 6-foot-wide rolls and can have a virtually seamless installation depending on how large your room is. Sheet vinyl can also be considered totally waterproof since there are no gaps or grout lines where moisture can seep in to. Even sheet vinyl can boast the authentic visuals and textures of wood and tile but utilizing advanced technologies such as registered embossing.
WPC, or wood plastic composite flooring, is commonly misnamed waterproof core flooring. Regardless of the name, both are suiting because WPC is actually totally waterproof. These specialty luxury vinyl floors are well suited for your entire home. With WPC flooring you can have the authentic look of wood and stone in a floor that is made to handle even tough commercial spaces. Typically, all WPC products will be considered luxury vinyl tiles or luxury vinyl planks, but not all luxury vinyl is WPC.
Rigid Core Flooring
Rigid core products include WPC and SPC tile and plank floors. These hybrid floors bring you the best of both such as being 100% waterproof, scratch and stain resistant, comfortable and quiet, and beautiful enough to install all throughout your home. Rigid core vinyl floors come in a collection of stone and wood look options to suit the needs of different home and personal styles. Rigid core floors are easy to install and will last for years in your home when taken care of properly.
