Is luxury vinyl flooring a good option for the kitchen?

Luxury vinyl is a multiple-layer flooring material with a tough surface layer, making it ideal for a kitchen, especially if it is one of the busiest rooms in your home.

Vogel's Carpets in Seattle, WA, is the place to find a great variety of luxury vinyl plank and tile styles. This attractive flooring is known for its superior stain and scratch resistance.

Wear layer

The wear layer is positioned on the luxury vinyl flooring surface to protect the high-tech image below. Once this wear layer is worn down, your new floor will need to be replaced, so be sure to choose a brand that has a 20-mil wear layer.

Some companies even place an additional coating on this transparent layer to make the flooring even more durable.

Three more layers

Homeowners favor wood-look LVP and stone-look LVT, but tiles that look like ceramic and concrete or show off colorful designs are available.

Top quality brands have a waterproof core under the image layer, and the backing layer protects it. Multiple-layer luxury vinyl, sometimes backed by a pet-friendly warranty, is versatile.

Installation methods

Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed anywhere in the home, not only because it is waterproof but also because it is designed for more than one installation method.

Glue-down brands contrast floating floor brands with edges that click and lock together. Floating floors can be laid over wood and concrete subfloors and most existing hard surface floors.
