Vinyl has come a long way since its introduction to the market in the 1930's. Over the years, a number of advances in digital printing and imaging have opened up broad new avenues of design possibilities for this once maligned floor covering option.
These advances allow luxury vinyl flooring to mimic the appearance of a wide range of flooring materials, including wood, stone, and tile at a fraction of the cost of its natural counterparts. This has catapulted luxury vinyl into the upper echelons of popularity among flooring customers who wish to have the aesthetic qualities of more expensive flooring options, without the sticker-shock that comes with them.

Thanks to a new process called photogravure, it is now possible for luxury vinyl manufacturers to create high-quality, hyper-realistic imitations of natural flooring materials that so accurately recreate the look of stone, wood, or other flooring materials, that they even fool the eye of trained experts.
For the customer, this means they can have the warmth and richness of hardwood or the chic coolness of stone, without the hefty price tag that comes with them.
Because there are no trees cut or stone mined in the production of luxury vinyl flooring, it is not a product that contributes to the problems of deforestation or open-pit quarrying. Luxury vinyl is made from 100% vinyl, and the process used to manufacture it uses less water than many other flooring materials during its production.
Luxury vinyl meets Green building standards and, when employed in commercial applications, is eligible for LEED points.
Originally designed for use in areas where high humidity, ambient moisture, or occasional standing water are a reasonable expectation, luxury vinyl can be employed in a wide range of locations that are otherwise unsuitable for less water resistant forms of flooring. This allows you to have the look of wood in rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, or basements, without having to worry about the service life of your floor being shortened.
Luxury vinyl is the perfect choice for households that don't want to have to spend a great deal of time cleaning and maintaining their floors. Requiring only regular sweeping and an occasional mopping, luxury vinyl won't eat up your time with busy-work to keep it in good condition.
This makes it a very attractive option for busy households that don't have time to worry about caring for their floor on a daily basis.
