Luxury vinyl flooring has quickly become one of the most popular flooring options in residential and commercial settings. This is because luxury vinyl flooring combines the natural looks of wood and stone with premium performance. Regardless of your style preferences and performance desires, there is definitely a luxury vinyl floor made for your home. Wall to Wall Carpet One Floor & Home in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is your local flooring retailer.
Luxury vinyl is available in a broad range of styles and is ultra-durable. Unlike hardwood and stone, luxury vinyl special layered construction features synthetic materials, which means that it is almost entirely made from durable materials. With this construction, luxury vinyl is resistant to surface scratches and scuffs, and it also can handle spills and stains. At the same time, luxury vinyl planks and tiles are reinforced with additional support layers, so they will rarely, if ever, crack, chip, or break.
Traditionally, luxury vinyl comes in plank and tile options. These planks and tiles use digital printing technology to achieve the detailed and authentic looks of stone, wood or tile flooring. This makes luxury vinyl an ideal alternative to natural flooring options. You can have the same exact authentic looks, but in a floor that is resistant to everyday life. You can live on these floors worry free.
Tile is a traditional flooring choice for kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and other high-moisture areas, but it can be expensive and labor-intensive to install. To skip the hassle, opt for luxury vinyl tiles, which look just like natural stone, porcelain, and ceramic. Hardwood has a lot of characteristics that homeowners want but it can be an expensive floor to install and maintain. That is why the luxury vinyl industry came out with vinyl planks that can do more than hardwood ever could. Each wood vinyl plank offers the same rich, visually-stunning details as natural oak, hickory, maple, cherry, and more, but with enhanced water, wear, and stain-resistance.
Since luxury vinyl has grown so rapidly, there are other options to choose including WPC luxury vinyl and rigid core flooring. WPC and rigid core flooring have some of the same features, but are not always the same. These are considered the premium types of luxury vinyl flooring because of the ultra-durable construction. WPC and other rigid core floors are considered 100% waterproof options. For those who are on a very tight budget, we do offer sheet vinyl flooring.
Luxury vinyl can withstand heat, moisture, and heavy traffic and it is also resistant to mold and mildew, making it great for people with allergies. Unlike hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl can be installed in places with moisture, and even in places with a lot of foot traffic. Since luxury vinyl looks so real, you can install it in busy places around your home and even in bedrooms and living rooms and your guests will have no idea unless you tell them. Other places you can install luxury vinyl in include bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, basements, and even laundry rooms.
We are often asked by customers if luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof. Our selection features both waterproof and water-resistant planks and tiles. What is the difference? A waterproof luxury vinyl floor features a surface that cannot be damaged by liquid, and a core that allows moisture and liquid to evaporate over time instead of absorb into the floor itself. Our water-resistant floors can handle accidental spills and messes, but can become damaged if they are not cleaned up right away or moisture can be trapped within the floors causing the growth of mold or mildew. A wonderful addition to moisture-prone spaces like your kitchen and bathroom, waterproof luxury vinyl also works everywhere within your walls, making it an exceptional option for homes with pets and small kids.
