It is a stylish, affordable, 100% waterproof, and durable product. It offers true-to-life photos of wood, stone, and tile taken with 3D photography and available in countless colors and patterns with images inspired by nature. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. It can also be cut into groutable squares (called luxury vinyl tile) to echo stone and tile. It follows all the trends so that you can get gray and whitewashed wood looks; marble, granite, or slate surfaces or tile-sized pieces with colorful geometrics or encaustic style patterns.
All forms are 100% waterproof, whether submerged (as in an appliance flood) or spilled on. As for durability, one of the layers is a top, clear melamine coating to protect the floor from scratches and scuffs. Wear layers have a separate measurement and, for heavily trafficked floors, you'll want the most robust possible, at least 20-mils.
All LVF is easy to clean with regular sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Please avoid waxy-shine-promoting substances as they can damage the finish and dull the floor; if you feel you need more shine, seek the advice of your flooring expert. Whether planks or squares, they can be installed as a floating floor.
