Is luxury vinyl flooring durable?

At Design District, we can answer that. Luxury vinyl has proven to be one of the most popular floors on the market because of its durability. It resists scratches, stains, scuffs, and spills. Yet, it still has its spectacular appearance.


Most luxury vinyl comes with a 25 to 30-year warranty. It is an excellent choice for kitchens, baths, and laundry rooms. Luxury vinyl is a rugged and waterproof material that is eligible for any room in your house.


Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) comes in two types of formats: plank and tile. These planks (LVP) and tiles (LVT) are made of the same material. As a result, they are very durable, attractive, and easy to maintain. All you need to do is light sweeping or mopping to keep them clean. The core layer of the flooring is usually 8 millimeters thick. However, you can get a higher thickness, which adds to the lifespan of the flooring. The top layer of the LVF is a melamine layer that is tough and resistant to scratches and scuffs.


LVF is also, at its core layer, waterproof. This is due to the use of PVC, a standard construction material that is innately waterproof. PVC is used everywhere in construction these days. So luxury vinyl has a natural resistance to any water damage.


The imaging layer, or design layer of LVF, is thanks to the current technology of today. It can mimic any image. Luxury vinyl plank mimics wood, from walnut to cherry, oak to ash. Luxury vinyl tile mimics any stone, and ceramic, and brickwork. It can mimic wood as well. Don't worry; you have a plethora of images to choose from for your LVF.
