Is it possible to get durable, versatile, low-maintenance flooring for less than the cost of ceramic tile? The answer is yes – with luxury vinyl tile! If you don’t want to break the bank on traditional tile and stone options, luxury vinyl tile is an excellent alternative that doesn’t sacrifice style or strength.
We at Floor Coverings International of Northwest San Antonio always recommend that San Antonio homeowners do their research before purchasing. If you are interested in luxury vinyl tile, here are some good things to know:
Luxury vinyl tile is available in a wide selection of patterns, colors, and designs, and its appearance can be customized to your preferences. Another advantage of luxury vinyl tile is that it can be easily replaced as interior design styles and trends change over time.
Though luxury vinyl tile is not as hard as ceramic, porcelain, or stone, it is still very durable. Most luxury vinyl tile is water-resistant and covered in a protective wear layer. Plus, the flexibility and springiness of vinyl makes it less prone to breakage than ceramic tile (and also more comfortable to walk and stand on).
If you are concerned about the eco-friendliness of luxury vinyl tile, look for brands that use recycled material in their vinyl tile flooring options.
Luxury vinyl tile is fairly easy to maintain. Regular sweeping or vacuuming is a good way to clean your floors, but if a spill occurs, simply wipe it up quickly to avoid damage. Though luxury vinyl floors should last for many years, they are also easy to remove and replace if they begin showing wear and tear.
Luxury vinyl tile and other vinyl flooring options are less expensive than traditional ceramic, porcelain, or stone tile. Considering their versatility and long-lasting durability, luxury vinyl floors may also offer a better value for San Antonio homeowners.
