What are the Different Types of Luxury Vinyl?
We all have those challenging areas in our home, where we struggle to find flooring that’s up to the task, while staying beautiful. Luxury vinyl flooring is a solution for many such situations.

Of course, gaining a thorough understanding of the different vinyl types is always a good plan as you begin your shopping journey. Here’s what you should know as you make your final decision.
Sheet vinyl is hardly a new concept: it’s actually been around for quite some time. That’s not to say today’s sheet vinyl is the same stuff you remember from decades ago: modern digital printing capabilities have resulted in some seriously realistic visuals that look exactly like hardwood or stone. Sheet vinyl resists moisture, is sold by the roll, and is easily installed with few visible seams. It’s highly affordable, and can be used to cover very large spaces.
WPC, or wood plastic composite flooring, is extremely dense, incredibly durable, and 100% waterproof. Offered up in tile and plank form, this type of heavy-duty luxury vinyl is a favorite for commercial flooring: you’ll often see it in healthcare, hospitality, and industrial settings. However, with its realistic visuals and easy care requirements, it’s also a smart addition for your hectic home.
Rigid Core Vinyl
Rigid core is a hybrid luxury vinyl that’s waterproof, with many other appealing features. Thanks to an enduring core, this type of vinyl boasts added cushioning, making it easy on your joints. It’s also equipped to handle hard usage, and attractive to behold with its brilliant visuals.
