For several years now, luxury vinyl flooring has been a great option for homes in Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and the Lowcountry. Still, many people aren’t aware of the benefits that luxury vinyl flooring has to offer. Here are three reasons why you may want to consider luxury vinyl flooring in your Lowcountry home.

Design Versatility:

Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Charleston

Luxury vinyl planks and tiles offer almost limitless design potential. They use a layer of photorealistic imagery to duplicate the appearance of natural wood or stone. The ability to copy these natural materials means that your options range from the warm rustic look of distressed oak planks to the classic, refined, elegance of slate and travertine tile. You can also use most luxury vinyl tile and planks to create custom patterns or even install them diagonally.

In addition to all these design options, luxury vinyl is warmer to the touch, meaning you can enjoy the look of ceramic tiles in your bathroom, without the feeling of stepping onto a cold floor.

If any of these possibilities have sparked your interest, take a look at our product gallery to see some of the luxury vinyl we have to offer.

Durable and Easy to Maintain:

Luxury vinyl’s resilient wear layer protects your floor from getting scratched, dented, or stained, which is perfect if you have kids or pets. And, because many luxury vinyl planks and tiles are waterproof, they can be exposed to the moisture common in bathrooms and mudrooms.

Maintaining your luxury vinyl flooring is also considerably easier than many types of flooring. Regular sweeping and mopping, using a microfiber or sponge mop head and a no-rinse cleaner, is all it takes to keep your floors in prime condition.

Great Value:

While luxury vinyl tile and planks deliver a look remarkably similar to natural wood and stone, they do it at a more affordable price. This savings, combined with a lifespan that can last decades, make luxury vinyl a tremendous value.
