Vinyl flooring has gone through numerous changes over the past ten or so years. It went from a peel-and-stick easy solution to a luxury alternative for hardwood and tile. Vinyl today is most noted for how strong, resilient, and water resistant it is. Carpet One Floor & Home in Columbia, MO, is your local source for all things luxury vinyl flooring. Our flooring experts are here to help you explore our collection of flooring and to find the best floor for your home that suits your needs and matches your style.
While vinyl is not a new product, luxury vinyl is an improved version. Luxury vinyl comes in highly realistic looks and features a layered construction for protection and durability. The top wear layer is usually urethane based and exceptionally strong. The thicker this wear layer, the longer your floor will last. Vinyl’s durability extends to withstand heat, moisture, and is resistant to high-traffic areas, mold, and mildew. Want to learn more? You can start shopping our luxury vinyl selection online now!
Luxury vinyl also comes in a collection of styles, patterns, and colors to match your home’s décor and your personal style. In addition to sheet vinyl, our luxury vinyl selection comes in plank and tile options. These planks and tiles are made with the most up-to-date technology using digital printing and registered embossing to make them look and feel exactly like a hardwood, tile, and natural stone. There are also even more durable options like WPC flooring and rigid core flooring, which are made with commercial-grade durability so you know you are installing a quality floor in your home.
With this flooring sold in convenient rolls, sheet vinyl is likely the most budget-minded type of flooring being sold today – though its good looks are far from “shoddy.” Modern sheet vinyl is light years away from what it used to be. It now comes in all your favorite styles and colors, including options that appear exactly like natural hardwood or stone. Sheet vinyl is easy to install and can be purchased in bulk, making it very popular amongst property managers and others who have excessively large areas to cover.
Created with the goal of capturing all the various shapes, textures, and visuals of hardwood floor planks, luxury vinyl plank is actually superior, in some senses, to the real thing. Luxury vinyl plank was created with the main goal of holding its own against everyday accidents and mishaps. A walk in high heels, your pets’ paws and claws, and even the odd overflowing sink are no match for vinyl planks, which are a smart addition to just about any interior space.
A floor for our hectic modern times, luxury vinyl tile is made to perfectly imitate all your favorite ceramic, porcelain, or stone looks, but with less upfront costs and less ongoing upkeep. Your luxury vinyl floor is extremely durable and since tiles are available in varying sizes, it’s easy to create your desired outcome.
While real hardwood and tile floors are made with natural materials, vinyl products feature a durable, synthetic design that’s extremely durable. Unlike wood, which tends to warp in humid conditions, waterproof vinyl floors are 100% moisture protected. Additionally, waterproof vinyl tiles are an economical alternative to real tile. These floors have a water-tight surface and seams, which locks out leaks from pet accidents and spills. Waterproof vinyl is also fast-drying and easy to clean, making it a good choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and other high-traffic spaces. Many waterproof vinyl options have a rigid core layer that adds structural stability to the floor, which prevents it from warping with humidity. Some collections have an antimicrobial underlayment that protects the space beneath your floor from odor-causing mold, mildew, and bacteria growth.
As beautiful and durable as natural hardwood can be, it is limited in where it can be installed. Luxury vinyl eliminates that issue with durable and resilient planks that resist moisture and can handle day to day activity. Luxury vinyl tiles are just as versatile as regular tiles, but have the added benefit of being more forgiving and comfortable underfoot.
The best rooms to install luxury vinyl flooring in would include basements, kitchens and bathrooms, and even mudrooms. Its water, scratch, and scuff resistance make this floor ultra-durable.
