When shopping for luxury vinyl flooring in Bridgeport, CT, consider the product's enormous aesthetic and functional value. All vinyl, especially the luxury version, is a trend right now. The products offer realistic images, 100% waterproof capabilities, durability, low maintenance, and more.
Rather than sheet, luxury vinyl comes in two forms. One is luxury vinyl plank (LVP) which is cut into long planks to mimic hardwood floorboards.
Alternatively, it can be cut into square, groutable, tile-sized pieces. Many tell us the extra seams add even more to the realism.
Wood looks: trending and expected to last for 15 years
Like all luxury vinyl flooring, the images are taken with high-definition photography, so they're vibrant and accurate. All the knots, grains, swirls, and color variations are found in Mother Nature's creations.
People always ask us if they can get gray, whitewashed, or some other hardwood shade. The answer is a resounding yes! There are hundreds of photos from which to choose, so you can get anything to suit any decor.
Textures: putting the finishing touches on a floor
Textures are big this year! Embossing enables luxury vinyl flooring manufacturers to mimic brushed, hand-scraped, and distressed looks.
Embossed-in-register (EIR) is relatively new to the market and might be the most realistic look yet. Here, embossing creates little indentations that match the image's grain.
About the square, tile-sized pieces
Marble, slate, travertine, granite, and more are some of the stone looks you can get. Ceramic tile echoes come in brilliant, exciting patterns, including herringbone, chevron, geometrics, circles, etc.
Some designs include Adura Rigid Plank by Mannington, Alterna Mesa Stone by Armstrong, and many more.
Amping it up
Waterproof vinyl flooring is an advanced version of luxury vinyl. It has all the same style but is engineered to be even thicker and more durable.
These floors are also constructed with the WPC and SPC cores; they offer the highest moisture protection and won't peel or ripple.
