Are you searching for a floor that looks like natural wood or tile but is durable and resilient? Consider taking a look at luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl has seen a lot of popularity over the last few years due to its construction and ability to look like real tile or wood. Hyland Carpet One Floor & Home is your local flooring store and luxury vinyl experts in Sudbury, Ontario. That means you can come to us to help you find the best floor for your home.
Luxury vinyl is an affordable option compared to traditional tile and wood flooring. The image layer in each plank and tile features a high definition picture of real wood or stone, making it possible to replicate the natural look. These floors are ideal for active families with pets and young children at home. They can withstand daily use and life’s challenges caused by spills and accidents.
One of the many reasons luxury vinyl continues to be a popular flooring option is because of the variety of styles from which you can choose. Our selection features luxury vinyl planks and luxury vinyl tiles. All luxury vinyl floors are made from synthetic materials that give them their durability. Luxury vinyl planks replicate the look of wood flooring, but without the added cost or maintenance. Most vinyl planks feature embossed surfaces to replicate the authentic feel of a wood plank. Many customers actually can’t tell the difference when they’re walking on these floors.
Luxury vinyl planks are resistant to moisture, so unlike hardwood they will not react as much to spills and humidity. Luxury vinyl tiles are very similar to real tiles in terms of looks, maintenance, and durability. However, vinyl tiles are much warmer to the touch and forgiving under foot when stood on. Much like regular tile, luxury vinyl tile comes in an assortment of different colours, patterns, and more. You can also install them individually to create an eye catching design by using various shapes and sizes.
We often run into the question of whether or not vinyl flooring is waterproof. For the most part, all luxury vinyl floors are considered moisture resistant, but there are luxury vinyl options that are considered waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a watertight surface and a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from reaching the subfloor, and makes wiping up spills easy.
While many of us are drawn to the stunning looks of natural stone and hardwood, these flooring mediums aren’t always the smartest match for your space. Hardwood can warp when it gets wet, and some types of stone can become scratched under heavy foot traffic. Luxury vinyl flooring, on the other hand, works just about anywhere. However, there are different varieties of luxury vinyl that are especially well-suited for certain areas. For example, those seeking new flooring for their bathroom or shower area would do best to choose luxury vinyl flooring that’s 100% waterproof.
As demand for luxury vinyl products keeps on growing, Hyland Carpet One Floor & Home continues expanding its inventory. With our main goal being to address each customer’s changing needs, we’re proud to offer some of greater Sudbury’s most beloved luxury vinyl flooring brands, including premium Carpet One exclusives you won’t see anywhere else.
