Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
Carpet One Floor & Home in Asheville, NC is your local retailer for all things flooring, including luxury vinyl. When you stop by our showroom, you’ll be able to navigate through a wide collection of styles, colors, and types of luxury vinyl to choose from. Luxury vinyl is known as the budget friendly alternative to hardwood flooring. Luxury vinyl is made to look exactly like hardwood or stone flooring, but be resilient and stand up to every day wear and tear.
Luxury vinyl gets its durability from how it is constructed. A tough wear layer protects the high resolution hardwood or stone image from stains, water, dirt, and scratches. The core of luxury vinyl is made from synthetic materials and gives luxury vinyl its stability. The image layer of luxury vinyl is constantly evolving, and becoming more detailed over time. In some cases the image is so realistic it is hard to tell which is luxury vinyl and which is the real deal.
Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?
Due to its incredibly stable construction, you can install luxury vinyl floors almost anywhere in your home. Keep in mind not all luxury vinyl is waterproof, so options like the Carpet One exclusive Invincible H2O are best for bathrooms and laundry rooms because they are 100% waterproof.
Luxury vinyl options that are simply scratch and water resistant are great options for kitchens, living rooms, and even bedrooms. Since luxury vinyl can replicate such authentic looks, your guests will have a hard time telling they are not real wood or stone floors.

Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
Not all luxury vinyl is 100% waterproof, but many of them are. One example is Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brand, Invincible H20, which is a fantastic addition to your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. Waterproof luxury vinyl has both a watertight outer surface and a resilient core, preventing your flooring from being damaged by moisture.
