Professionally Installed Luxury Mimic Vinyl Floorings

Posted by on Nov 17, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off on Professionally Installed Luxury Mimic Vinyl Floorings

Anyone who wishes to increase home equity values or simply renovate your existing house for posterity, one of the popular interior design trends today is using mimic vinyl floorings in wet areas.

Why Vinyl Flooring?
Vinyl flooring normally comes in six, nine, or 12-inch square tiles. It is water resistant, stain resistant, and very easy to clean. Modern designers always recommend to homeowners “easy to clean” materials. It’s idle to argue the merits of that especially when you compare it to high maintenance flooring like carpets or parquet.

The real selling point of a professionally installed vinyl flooring is its ability to mimic the look of other high-value flooring materials like hardwood, granite, and marble.

Hardwood floorings provide the best look for that traditional rustic feel. It goes very well with other wood accents, furniture, and brick finish. The problem is cost, hardwood flooring including reclaimed wood is expensive. We can use vinyl flooring with a wooden design pattern to complete the cabin look.

Granite gives the best modern luxury look available today. It is also the most expensive per square foot area. Vinyl can also mimic the look of granite flooring cheaply. It is as durable as Granite and they are equally prone to scratches.

The same could be said between mimic vinyl and marble. Marble is susceptible to stains while vinyl is not. But laying vinyl over concrete may result in uniformity and smoothness problem. Installing a well-sanded plywood under-layer normally solves the issue.

This is why it is important to consult a flooring expert like 123 Floors in San Diego. Minor installation issues and imperfections become a source of damage over time. Vinyl tiles are susceptible to little flaws that will become a problem if installed incorrectly.

Luxurious floors always increase equity value of a property. If you are renovating your home to live or flip, always consider having professionally installed mimic Vinyl flooring.
