Best Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring has become a household favorite. Many homeowners are upgrading carpet and wood floors to luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank. Nonetheless, you may be wondering what makes these floors so special. Though each LVT and LVP brand provides its own features and benefits, vinyl flooring allows you to have all the looks and feel of real hardwood and tile but without the setbacks.
Which Vinyl Flooring is Best?
Karndean offers beautiful and intricate wood designs that are indistinguishable to real wood. Pick from various shades, tones, and textures just like real hardwood. Also, the Kanrdean enhanced surface treatment protects the floor against wear, scuffs, spills, and wear. Another notable feature is the non-porus surface which stops germs, dirt, and bacteria from slipping through the cracks.
The most notable feature of COREtec Plus is that it is a floating floor and 100% waterproof. In addition, COREtec Plus can be installed over most damp areas and will not swell, contract, or expand when exposed to water. COREtec Plus offers the XL, HD, and Design collections, so you can find an LVT floor that fits your style and needs. For instance, the COREtec Plus XL collection is the largest LVT plank on the market and never needs expansion strips.
The only difference between COREtec Plus and Invincible H20 is that Invincible H20 is an exclusive Carpet One brands. Like COREtec Plus, Invincible H20 is 100% waterproof and perfectly mimics the natural hardwood designs and feel. Also, Invincible H20 floors are quieter and warmer compared to hardwood due to the cork underlayment. Nonetheless, what separates Invincible H20 from COREtec is the Lifetime Warranty on wear, fade, stains, rips, tears, indents, water, installation, and the locking system.
Baroque is a name most associated with hardwood, yet the luxury vinyl plank products by Baroque provide all the same natural details and colors of the Baroque hardwood. The Baroque LVT floors offer a variety of wood species looks to choose from and range from traditional to exotic styles. Additionally, these LVP floors are offered in three different constructions and warranties. For protection, Baroque uses a polyurethane finish while others use an aluminum oxide finish to scratch and wear resistance.
Armstrong is another name that can be associated with hardwood. Nonetheless, Armstrong is known for its array of flooring products, including LVT, LVP, and vinyl sheet. The most notable Armstrong collection is the Alterna. This collection provides the engineered stone look. This LVT floor allows you to have the natural stone or ceramic look in your home but is more durable, easy to maintain, and affordable.
