Join The Luxury Vinyl Flooring Trend

So you’re ready to choose new flooring for your home, what will you go with? One of the hottest trends on the market today is Luxury Vinyl Flooring or LVT for short. When deciding if LVT is right for your home, you’ll find that there are tons of options that you can choose from. This blog post will give you an idea of what to expect and make it much easier to find the best LVT flooring that will fit all your needs.

What Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?

LVT flooring is a lot like regular vinyl tile, they both have a wear layer, an image layer, a resilient core and backing. However, LVT is generally thicker and offers a greater level or durability and design realism. Many of the Luxury Vinyl Flooring styles that we carry are waterproof, so they won’t swell when exposed to water.

Where Can I Install Luxury Vinyl Flooring?

While LVT is not meant for stairs, it can go on any and all flat level surfaces. Our luxury vinyl flooring’s wonderful combination of design options, easy installation and good value make LVT a flooring favorite for gathering spaces and utility areas such as kitchens, mudrooms, bathrooms, and playrooms.

What styles can I get with LVT flooring?

The beauty of luxury vinyl tile is how versatile it is. It’s truly possible to achieve a look that mimics hardwood or natural stone, but with the performance you’re seeking from a vinyl floor. Great care is taken during the design process to create visuals and textures that mimic the real thing.

Here are some of the looks you’ll be able to choose from at Bode Floors:

Realistic looking wood species – Everything from traditional Oak, Walnut and Birch to true-to-life exotic woods with dramatic grain patterns
Texture and finishing effects – Weathered white-washing, liming and rough-hewn reclaimed looks
