Luxury vinyl flooring is great for active households

If you like the look of tile or hardwood but not the price, luxury vinyl is the flooring for you. It can be installed anywhere in the home, including bathrooms and the basement, since it repels moisture and water. This durable flooring is stain and scratch-resistant, and it holds up well in active households with children and pets. Carpet Barn is a luxury vinyl retailer that offers the trendiest styles. We have a showroom in both Spokane and Spokane Valley, Washington. We also offer a handy shop at home service.

Multi-ply flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring usually has four layers. The backing layer adds sound absorption and softness to the floor. The core provides moisture protection while the wear layer, which determines the durability, protects the design layer. A 20 mil or higher wear layer thickness is best for active households. Plank and tile thickness ranges from 2mm to 8mm or more. Advanced 3D printing produces designs that mimic wood species, ceramic, and stones like slate, marble, and travertine. Thin and flexible luxury vinyl is thicker than standard vinyl. This means that it looks more like natural materials since it can be deeply embossed as the design is printed.


A luxury vinyl plank is usually designed to be part of a floating floor that is not attached to the subfloor while a luxury vinyl tile can also be glued down. Vinyl flooring can be installed on wood, concrete, and some existing floors. A moisture barrier may be required under a floating floor, especially if it is installed on top of a concrete slab. Also, the flooring may need to acclimate to the temperature and humidity in your home before installation. The highest quality vinyl flooring has a waterproof wood plastic composite or stone plastic composite core. This flooring is ideal for installation in a water prone basement since it can withstand flooding. Luxury vinyl flooring is usually warrantied for 15 years or more.
