Hardwood is beautiful in a way that only Mother Nature could construct, and is certainly luxury flooring at its finest. Hardwood, however, has a weakness when it comes to moisture. It can warp and discolor when exposed to water. Luxury vinyl tile won’t have that weakness, because it is made of a solid plastic material at its core. It is impervious to water.
Stone flooring has been used in some of the most iconic buildings throughout history. However, stone flooring while classically beautiful, is porous and can stain when things like wine or juice are spilled on its surface. If not cleaned quickly, the stone can become permanently discolored. Once again, luxury vinyl tile flooring doesn’t have that issue because of its inherently waterproof nature.
Luxury vinyl tile is made of a plastic core constructed through 3D printing. This allows the textures of wood and stone to be replicated accurately. It is then overlaid with a digitally rendered photograph of the wood or stone being replicated, and then sealed with a clear wear layer to protect that image. Luxury flooring doesn’t have to cost a fortune anymore, and at Young interiors, we have all of the luxury flooring you will need to create that perfect space.
