Yes, it will work well with any decor, from modern to traditional, California coastal, cottage, and more. Waterproof vinyl flooring is also referred to as a newer, more advanced version of luxury vinyl (LVF). Read along to learn more about waterproof flooring and its many benefits.
The highest level of moisture protection
Waterproof flooring is engineered LVF and is even thicker and more durable. These floors also come with the WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) cores that never peel or ripple, no matter how much water there is or for how long.
The floors, which can be cut into planks or tile-sized pieces, come with a clicking mechanism, so they fit together, mat, then hover over the subfloor without adhesives or nails.
WPC and SPC: same, but different
WPC and SPC cores offer the same kind of imperviousness. The difference is the feeling underfoot; SPC cores are firmer and more rigid like a hard surface, while WPC is warmer and more resilient. SPC was once used mainly for commercial installations but, with the expansion of colors and designs, has now moved more into the residential arena.
About luxury vinyl
This is important because a waterproof floor offers the same style and functionality as luxury vinyl flooring (LVF). LVF consists of gorgeous nature-inspired, true-to-life echoes of wood, stone, and tile. In addition, they have micro beveling and embossing that add depth, dimension, and textured looks, including wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.
The material can be cut into planks or square, tile-sized pieces used with or without grout as a design option.
It is low maintenance, needing only a regular sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid waxy, shine-promoting cleaners as they can damage the finish. Installation is uncomplicated, especially when it's a floating floor.
