If breathtaking premium flooring that won't break the bank sounds good to you, then take a look at luxury vinyl flooring. Not only does luxury vinyl flooring mimic real hardwood flooring and authentic stone so well that sometimes it's hard to tell the difference, but it also brings a number of benefits to the table, which we'll cover in a moment. This affordable flooring option provides the most optimal outcome for your design needs at an extremely reasonable price.

In this article, we'll explore the many advantages of luxury vinyl flooring, look at five stunning options by MSI, and more. Let's start with the benefits.

DURABILITY

When it comes to durability, luxury vinyl flooring brings so much to the table. In fact, it's among the most durable premium flooring options available to consumers today, even in the most high-traffic residential or commercial areas. Many available luxury vinyl options are waterproof, while others are water resistant, making them perfect for wet areas like kitchens, basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Durability is one of the most significant benefits of luxury vinyl tile as they stand up to mold, stains, scratches, moisture, and scuffs. 

LOW MAINTENANCE 

Where many of the premium flooring types that luxury vinyl mimics, like real wood flooring and authentic stone, require sealing and ongoing resealing to protect your investment, luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl planks do not. All you need is light wiping and regular mopping on the surface of your floor to remove any debris or dirt that may have built up.

It's important to note that while your luxury vinyl tile may be waterproof or water-resistant, avoid using a steam cleaner on this premium surface. It could seem like a good idea for a deep clean, but the extra moisture could release into the subfloor and end up causing water damage.

EASY TO INSTALL

When you opt for luxury vinyl tile, you'll save on installation costs. Installing luxury vinyl planks for the average homeowner with some DIY experience under their belt can be relatively easy. Additionally, you'll save more money compared to premium floorings that require other materials such as grout. Finally, you can save even more money if the vinyl flooring is installed over a subfloor since you won't have to spend money tearing that floor up.

APPEARANCE 

Luxury vinyl flooring comes in numerous looks and colors though the main two categories are wood look and stone look. Imagine capturing that sought-after look of weathered reclaimed wood or authentic stone but for a much lower price point. No matter the wood pattern, premium stone flooring style, or color, chances are you'll find it with luxury vinyl flooring. And this large selection of styles, colors, textures, and sizes gives you the freedom to customize your floor exactly how you want.

VERSATILITY

Luxury vinyl flooring is highly versatile compared to other premium surfaces. As previously mentioned, they are ideal in rooms that produce moisture, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and even basements. Another thought is using it in your kid's playroom to avoid unwanted dents and scratches.
