The answer is that you can realize any look you want, from a luxurious bath with marble or granite floors to a glamorous living room with high-gloss hardwood and a fun retro style game room with some colorful pops of tile. When it comes to luxury vinyl flooring in your Calgary home, you won’t be limited by anything but your imagination.
If you haven’t seen LVF yet…
You are in for a delightful shock. This vinyl is a true-to-life echo of wood, tile, or stone, in an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns. The image layer is taken with 3D photography, so it’s vivid and accurate with knots, grains, wormholes, and veining variations on display. It’s micro-beveled and embossed to add depth, dimension, and textured features such as hand-scraped, wire-brushed, weathered, or distressed.
LVF is sometimes called vinyl plank flooring (LVP) when it’s cut and mounted on boards to mimic hardwood; sometimes, it's even used for stone mimics because of the large format, fewer seams. LVT flooring refers to when LVF is cut into square, groutable tile-sized pieces; many feel the extra seams add to the realism and take it even further using colorful grout.
As functional as it is aesthetic
LVF is 100% waterproof, making it ideal for wet rooms like the bathroom, but it’s so stylish you can use it in any room. This vinyl is thicker than a standard sheet and should measure at least 8-mm or more; a layered product, LVF, is topped off by a clear, strong, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs; those should measure at least 20-mils.
It’s also low maintenance with only a daily sweeping and a weekly mopping required; be sure not to use waxy, shine promoting cleaners as they can damage the urethane finish. Installation can be an uncomplicated floating floor technique where the pieces click together, mat, and hover over the subfloor with no nails or adhesive needed.
