What Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Vinyl has seen many changes since it was first introduced to the flooring market years ago, and is not the same floor as it was in your grandmother’s kitchen back in the day. Several years ago homeowners would not think that vinyl could be a luxury product, but that has all changed along with advanced technology. At Hopkins Carpet One Floor & Home in Hopkins, MN, we carry luxury vinyl flooring products that'll suit the needs of almost all of our customers. Here are some reasons why luxury vinyl may be the right option for your home.
Live your life worry free in your own home when it comes to your flooring. Luxury vinyl is made to be durable, beautiful, and long lasting.

We offer luxury vinyl flooring that comes in wood and tile look options that are shaped like planks and tiles, so you no longer have to sacrifice style for function.
How Durable Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Luxury vinyl is often called resilient flooring for its ability to spring back to its original shape after being compressed. This slightly cushioned feel is what sets luxury vinyl apart from the rest of the flooring industry.
Durability is dependent on the wear layer, which is a clear plastic film applied to the top of the flooring. The thicker the wear layer the longer lasting the flooring. It is composed a high concentration of vinyl with a high resolution image layer and textured surface to mimic the type of flooring it is substituting.
Luxury vinyl’s durability ranges to withstand heat, moisture, is resistant to high-traffic areas, mold, and mildew, which makes it the perfect option for bathroom and kitchen flooring.
