I’ve recently recommended luxury vinyl plank and tile for private residential projects and multi-unit residential projects (for residential units, lobbies or common areas). Luxury vinyl flooring has become a popular choice for interior design projects, offering a blend of style, durability, and affordability. One of the key attractions of luxury vinyl flooring is its ability to mimic the appearance of natural materials such as hardwood, stone, or ceramic tiles. Advanced printing and embossing technologies enable the creation of realistic textures and patterns, allowing homeowners and designers to achieve the aesthetic appeal of high-end materials without the associated costs.
A client and I just selected luxury vinyl tile with a cement/concrete look for a finished basement that includes a built-in bar, a media/seating area, and a game room. The LVT will prove to be warm and durable for many years to come. For a multi-unit residential project that I’m working on, we’re selecting luxury vinyl tile with a stone motif for the entry foyer and lobby, as a durable and good-looking solution. And, for several residential projects I’ve completed, wood grain luxury vinyl plank is a great choice for finished basements, kitchens and even living areas.
In addition to its visual appeal, luxury vinyl flooring boasts impressive durability and resilience. The construction of these floors typically includes multiple layers, including a wear layer that provides protection against scratches, stains, and daily wear and tear. This makes luxury vinyl a suitable choice for high-traffic areas in residential and commercial spaces alike. Its water-resistant properties make it an ideal flooring solution for areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms, ensuring longevity and ease of maintenance.
The installation process for luxury vinyl flooring is often straightforward, with options for glue-down, click-lock, or loose-lay installations. This versatility not only makes it a practical choice for a variety of spaces but also allows for quick and hassle-free updates to interior designs. With a wide range of styles, colors, and patterns available, luxury vinyl flooring provides designers and clients with a great array of good looking, practical choices, making it a go-to option for those seeking a balance of functionality and style in their interior design projects.
