Luxury vinyl flooring is suitable for the entire home

Luxury vinyl is a 'great for any home' type of flooring. There is a style to match every decor, and it can be installed in every room. It stands up to heavy foot traffic, and with its easy to clean surface, it’s ideal for homes that include pets or children. You can find a large assortment of vinyl flooring at Town Flooring. We bring the latest sheet, plank, and tile styles to the Charlottesville, Virginia, area.

Vinyl flooring

Standard vinyl and luxury vinyl are tough flooring materials that repel spills and water. Both man-made floor coverings are composed of multiple layers, including a top wear layer that resists scratches and stains. Luxury vinyl is available in planks and tiles, while standard vinyl comes in rolls that are cut into custom-fit sheets. Luxury vinyl is thicker than standard vinyl. This means the digital image of hardwood, stone, and ceramic can be more deeply embossed. Deeper embossing creates a more realistic look.


Composition and form are not the only differences between the two types of vinyl flooring. The method of installation also differs. Luxury vinyl flooring is usually designed to fit together in tongue and groove fashion so the floor can be constructed to float over the subfloor. There are, however, brands that are glued to the subfloor like standard vinyl. An entire sheet can be glued down, or the sheet can be glued around the perimeter only. Loose lay vinyl sheets are also available. These sheets, ideal for smaller rooms, rely on friction to stay in place.

Waterproof brands

Water on standard vinyl flooring rarely seeps through the sheet since there are no or few seams in a room. A small space can be fitted with one sheet of vinyl, while a larger room requires two or three sheets. By its nature, luxury vinyl flooring has many seams. But any brand with a wood-plastic composite or a stone plastic composite core can repel water or liquid spills. The floor can be wet for long periods without damage. WPC and SPC flooring feel similar underfoot to flooring made of the natural materials it mimics.
