Luxury vinyl flooring from Doolittle's


An outstanding alternative to other classic flooring styles

In the renovation and real estate industries, a topic that always comes up is flooring. Deciding on what the right flooring is for your home really depends on factors such as lifestyle, style of the home, location, and budget.

Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is the option that is growing the fastest in the global flooring market. The beautiful designs of luxury vinyl flooring include natural looks such as stone and wood. LVF is long wearing and high performance, and can be used for both commercial and residential flooring projects.

Luxury vinyl flooring is eco-friendly, recyclable, and frequently made of recycled materials.

The way that LVF mimics natural stone and wood is one of the reasons that it is so popular. It is engineered to suit everyday living and does not come with the high price tag of wood or stone. The concept is called biomimicry, which is art that recreates the best ideas in nature. It has become an important consideration in designing luxury vinyl flooring. The treasured raw materials of wood and stone are then re-imaged with an alternative process that ensures our natural resources will continue to be available for future generations. The thickness, color, and grain of natural materials are visually recreated through 3-D printing technology. Luxury vinyl floors look natural, last longer, and are versatile enough for use in many locations around your home.

Maintaining luxury vinyl flooring

One of the biggest advantages of luxury vinyl is its durability. It offers scratch and dent resistance and withstands a good amount of wear and tear. Make sure to vacuum, dust, or sweep your luxury vinyl floor regularly. On occasion, wipe it with a damp cloth or mop, to keep it in pristine condition.

Luxury vinyl flooring resists water. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can be placed in bathrooms and basements without fear of water damage. Additionally, many varieties of luxury vinyl planks (LVP) have been lifted up, dried off, and reinstalled on a dry subfloor after a flood. LVP provides a handsome return on investment.

Classic floor choices such as hardwood can be a smart investment, but it is pricey and requires a significant upfront investment in installation and materials. Luxury vinyl planks are affordable and easy to install.
Luxury vinyl flooring is not the same as it was a generation ago. It looks better, is more durable, and offers a better return on your investment.
