Modern homeowners have many options for flooring upgrades during renovations, including hardwood, natural stone, and luxury vinyl tile (LVT), just to name a few. Many are leaning toward the latter for practical benefits, as well as varieties that look as good as natural wood and offer even greater comfort underfoot.

Where hardwood can easily be damaged by water, UV rays, and other environmental factors, LVT is resilient and often comes with a long-term warranty.

Natural stone flooring is certainly durable, but it can be very costly, requires regular maintenance, and it’s cold, hard, and prone to echoes. You won’t have any of these issues with LVT.

While there are plenty of flooring options to consider, one stands out for function, cost-effectiveness, and visual appeal. Even better, when you choose MSI for your LVT upgrade, you’ll enjoy a product made in the USA at our Georgia facility. Here are just a few great reasons to consider LVT from MSI.

Why Choose Luxury Vinyl Tile?

LVT has become a popular choice for flooring in recent years, not only because it is a cost-effective choice but due to the many practical and aesthetic benefits of luxury vinyl tile. It can be made to look like a wide range of wood species, with colors, grain patterns, and even textures that are almost indistinguishable from real hardwood planks.

The addition of a resilient wear layer helps protect against common forms of damage like staining and scuffing. Unlike hardwood, LVT is soft and comfortable underfoot, and it features built-in padding, making the installation process faster and saving homeowners money on underlayment materials and labor.

Of course, many homeowners are also looking for water-resistant flooring, and LVT doesn’t disappoint. In fact, MSI luxury vinyl planks are 100% waterproof, so you can confidently install them in a busy kitchen where spills are a daily occurrence or anywhere in the home.

With an authentic wood appearance, versatile options to go with any interior design, and so many practical benefits, you’ll have a hard time finding reasons not to choose LVT.

MSI Luxury Vinyl Flooring

When you think of vinyl flooring, you might imagine the sheet vinyl of old. The gorgeous and resilient luxury vinyl planks you can find today are a far cry from the flimsy materials that once marked a kitchen or bathroom design as low-budget.

When you add up material and installation costs for LVT, you’ll find that it still costs significantly less than hardwood or natural stone, for example, but the quality and appeal of LVT are undeniable. You’re already aware of the countless practical benefits of LVT, but what can you expect in terms of aesthetic appeal? Here are a couple of samples of MSI LVT flooring to give you an idea.

Sleek, Modern Dunite Oak

The weathered look in wood flooring has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last several years, in part because of color trends leaning hard into cool, gray neutrals. Lately, the consumer market has started to swing back toward warmer tones, leading to a growing interest in greiges.

Dunite Oak luxury vinyl planks are right on trend, with a combination of pale gray and beige hues that are both modern and inviting, paired with varied intensities of knots and grain to create an authentic wood appearance.

With wear-resistant technology and a limited residential lifetime warranty, this flooring is a great choice for luxurious living spaces that also happen to be households with children, pets, and a lot of foot traffic.
