When a new product comes on the market that pleases the consumer you will see sales surge and options for the product increase. That is the case with the new luxury vinyls.
Initially we thought that these floating vinyls were going to simmer down from a full boil and that wood flooring would make a hefty comeback but that has not happened yet. This goes to show that a successful product is well received by the customer. The best review is the neighbor who sees and likes what their neighbor has installed in their home.
So why are the new floating vinyls so popular? The pricing is right. There is a wide range of pricing starting at about $4 SF to $7 SF. The pricing factors are authenticity of color and pattern, ceramic bead finishes, quality of the click system, wear layer and overall thickness.
Floating floors are more forgiving than glue-down floors so there generally is less prep work.
If you are considering Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) or Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) it will serve you well with a quality product and professional installation.
