Vinyl flooring from Empire is a budget-friendly way to add a high-end look to your home. With styles that closely replicate the look and feel of real wood or tile floors, vinyl offers the style you're dreaming of in a more affordable material. But the benefits of vinyl flooring go beyond budget and appearances. With a construction that can be scratch resistant, water resistant, mildew resistant, and easy to clean, caring for vinyl flooring is incredibly simple.
Understanding the Types of Vinyl Flooring
When looking through Empire’s selection of vinyl flooring products, you’ll notice a variety of styles and types. While a seasoned flooring pro will be glad to walk you through the shopping process and help you choose the best vinyl floor products for your particular need, here’s a quick rundown on the very basics. Luxury vinyl planks are constructed to match the look of hardwood floor planks. You’ll also hear them referred to as “wood-look vinyl” products. Their surface often has both the look and the texture of wood grain, and they are available in planks of varying width and length, just as a real wood floor would.
Similarly, luxury vinyl tile is a synthetic product that replicates the look of a traditional porcelain, ceramic, or natural stone tile. Vinyl tiles can even be grouted like normal tile for a truly authentic tile look.
Finally, there is sheet vinyl flooring. This is an upgraded version of the material that you may have known as “linoleum” in years past. These large flexible sheets of vinyl offer continuous patterns of either tile or hardwood molded into the vinyl material. Today’s versions of sheet vinyl have a much more luxurious look and durable build than their predecessors, offering consumers a flooring option that is affordable, quick to install, and quite resilient.
The Benefits of New Vinyl Flooring from Empire Today
Vinyl flooring has a few major advantages compared to options like hardwood or tile floors. First off, a vinyl floor will be significantly less expensive than hardwood flooring. But even at their budget-friendly prices, vinyl floor products are still built to be incredibly durable. Look for vinyl products at Empire that are covered by Lifetime Warranties against wear, fading, and staining.
Many vinyl floors are also waterproof or highly water resistant, unlike a solid hardwood floor. The combination of robust construction and water resistance helps makes vinyl flooring easy to clean up. Whether it’s muddy dog paws or spilled juice, you can simply mop vinyl floor messes with some water and typical dish soap or household cleaner. As a result, vinyl floors are an excellent choice for basements, bathrooms, and kitchens—anywhere your floors will be subject to high traffic and moisture, but where you still want something with style.
