Luxury Vinyl Flooring | Rock Hill, SC

The Carolinas, barn door trends and luxury vinyl flooring

One of the design trends we've been seeing for a while in the Carolinas is the rustic look reminiscent of the dark tobacco barns. You may ask about flooring: Can I get it with luxury vinyl?

The answer is a definite yes.

Luxury vinyl (sometimes just called LVF) is a flooring material not at all what you may remember from decades ago. While it was then highly praised for its durability and easy maintenance, it wasn’t very highly designed.

Technology has made it evolve

Vinyl is still as durable as ever, but when it’s the luxury type, the flooring is seen in some high-end homes. It’s not just for the kitchen and bath, either, because it has become one of the most stylish, in-demand products ever.

The wide assortment of colors, patterns, species, and designs are available with features such as embossing, which gives it depth and dimension. The floor can look wire-brushed, hand-scraped, distressed or antiqued. The photography is so clear you'll see every knot, raised grain, swirl, and veining.

It comes in sheet-form or can be cut into planks or tile-sized pieces.

So, yes, you can get the rustic barn door look or farmhouse, traditional, retro, etc.


●It might be a luxury, but that doesn’t translate to expensive. This vinyl is a remarkable simulation of wood, stone or tile, but that’s not what you’ll pay for this flooring. It’s a fraction of the cost.
●Durability. Vinyl, in and of itself, is durable and waterproof. It also comes with a top clear wear sheet that protects the flooring from scratches and spills.

You can even get advanced cores such as WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) that will give an even higher level of protection from water and moisture. Peace of mind, that’s luxury, isn’t it?
●Easy to maintain. Sweep daily and, since dirt and particles lie on the surface, there’s no place for them to hide. When you sweep, out they go. Periodically, run a mop over it with water and a manufacturer-approved cleaner.
●DIY-friendly installation. If you’re so inclined, this could be a nice weekend project. With a few exceptions, the material “floats” over an existing floor and the pieces can be glued or just click and lock.
