What are Luxury Vinyl Floors?
Luxury vinyl floors are one type of the many flooring solutions we are proud to offer at Lakeside Floor Coverings. It’s a type of vinyl floor (as opposed to laminate) that has a multi-layered construction that makes it a very durable and water-resistant flooring solution.
Luxury vinyl floors are equally sturdy as they are beautiful and at the same time, they come with easy maintenance!
To add to the list of pros, luxury vinyl floors are also scratch and stain-resistant while also offering a soft feel underfoot.
It’s a highly versatile flooring product that has the exquisite look of high-end real wood, tile, and natural stone, but with the unbeatable benefit of a lower price tag and reduced maintenance requirements.
Lakeside Floor Covering’s luxury vinyl flooring options are the best on the market and exceed the high standards of our customers.

Why Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
You’ve found your way to this page and that likely means you are in the process of picking out a flooring solution that is most suitable for your particular project.
Part of this process is researching the features of different products to get the best out of your chosen flooring product. And we applaud you for doing your homework!
Because we both sell and install our flooring products, our team of flooring experts can be trusted to give you a thorough understanding of why luxury vinyl flooring is the best option for your flooring needs!
Luxury vinyl flooring is typically made with multiple layers. It’s this layered design that makes this product extra durable, water resistant, and aesthetically pleasing – all that coming to you at a budget-friendly price!
The luxury vinyl flooring products on the market today are different from standard vinyl flooring products from the past. Today’s products boast more realistic-looking hardwood, stone, and tile floor-mimicking images
And there are so many looks to be created with luxury vinyl flooring! For hardwood imitating floors, there’s everything from rustic to traditional and wood tones galore.
You also have the option for your luxury vinyl floors to have a stone or ceramic tile look, with a massive variety of colors and shapes.
The aesthetic variety can be overwhelming to dive into! That’s okay! Put your trust in our team to line you up with just the perfect variety of stylistic curations that will precisely narrow your seemingly endless options!
Each layer of luxury vinyl flooring is made with different materials. All of these materials have different reactions to water and temperature changes. This becomes important to pay attention to when it comes to the distinctive needs of your project.
But don’t worry about knowing everything there is to know – we can do that for you! Trust us to know exactly what products to offer you, all of which can be depended on to be a solid choice.
If your project is in a space that is susceptible to the presence of water – laundry room, kitchen, bathroom, etc. – our sales team will provide you with luxury vinyl flooring options that can be depended on for their water-resistant capabilities
The first layer of luxury vinyl flooring is the wear layer. Being the top layer, it’s the layer you step on. It has the special job of protecting the beautiful image layer right under it from wear and tear, scratches, and scuffs.
This is where durability comes into play! Our flooring experts will assess the durability demands of your unique project to offer you the best options for your flooring solution choice.
Choosing the Right Luxury Vinyl Floor
Landing on just the right flooring product for your project is a big task. After all, there are so many options out there based on flooring type and style. But have no fear!
Our Lakeside Floor Coverings team has selected only the most trusted manufacturers for the products we stand behind. When shopping our array of products, you can depend on all options to be the ones that we are proud to offer!
Luxury vinyl flooring comes in different forms: tile, plank, and sheet. The main difference comes in how each type is installed. Our installation experts are ready to provide you with the utmost workmanship to deliver an exceptional result.
When it comes to the different types of luxury vinyl flooring, all can be seen as budget-friendly alternatives to the real-deal they mimic and all three forms come with a low-maintenance care plan.
Below we will explain each type of luxury vinyl floor – as you read, keep your project in mind to see which option is best for you! Above all, we are here to help you make the most educated decision for your unique needs!
Vinyl Sheet Flooring
This type of luxury vinyl flooring comes in rolls that are usually 12 feet wide. Because these rolls are laid out in sheets, you can generally expect limited seams. Vinyl sheets are typically the least expensive luxury vinyl option.
Our in-house flooring installation experts can be depended on to provide you with top-of-the-line professional installation services that will leave you with an impeccable floor – one that is ready to stand up to wear and tear and remain appealing all the while.
Vinyl sheet flooring can be installed in a couple of different ways. The best way to figure out what installation type is right for your project is to consider the condition of the subfloor as well as how much foot traffic can be expected.
Our dedicated and experienced sales team is ready to team with you to help you do that.
Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring
Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring is made to mimic real hardwood floors. Because of that, it comes in plank form to enhance the realistic look. LVP comes in many different colors and wood-species imitating styles.
LVP products out on the market now have advanced stylistic features that can also simulate the feel of real hardwood floors by manipulating the surface texture of planks.
Generally speaking, glue-down, floating, and loose-lay are all installation methods for most LVP products.
Again, your unique project and flooring conditions will dictate the installation method as well as the manufacturer recommendations of the particular LVP product you choose. Reach out to us today to take advantage of our professional services to gauge your flooring needs.
Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring
If you are going for a stone or ceramic tile look, you will want to opt for luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring. LVT is made in tile form which differentiates it from LVP.
Just like sheet flooring and LVP, LVT can be installed in different ways. Lakeside Floor Coverings can be trusted to work with you to consider traffic loads, water exposure probability, as well as the condition of the subfloor to figure out your best installation method!
Other Luxury Vinyl Flooring Factors to Consider
Besides picking one of three forms of luxury vinyl flooring, there are other factors to consider if you want to make the most out of your project. Our team will work with you to find your ideal flooring solution that meets your budget demands and design wishes.
Because we live and breathe in the world of flooring, we have years of experience delivering the perfect outcome– we’re ready to do just that for you!
When you choose to work with Lakeside Floor Coverings, you can expect our team members to guide you in a direction that considers all aspects of your flooring project.
Below are some factors our dedicated team will walk you through.
Luxury Vinyl Installation Type
Lakeside Floor Coverings is proud to offer three installation types for luxury vinyl flooring: glue-down, floating, and loose-lay.
The particular specifications of your project will dictate which installation method is right for your project and we can help you figure that out.
Generally speaking, the floating installation method is the easiest to do – however, it tends to be the most expensive product to purchase initially.
On the other hand, glue-down tends to be the most budget-friendly option upfront – but, you’ll see your cost increasing with installation.
You can trust our expert guidance when it comes to providing you with the best flooring solution options for your space!
Luxury Vinyl Underlayment
Some luxury vinyl flooring solutions come with an underlayment layer as part of the composition. However, not all do!
This is important to know considering the space that is being outfitted. Sometimes project requirements call for noise-dampening products or those that can provide a particular underfoot feel.
And you guessed it: you can rely on our expert opinions to meet your demands!
Not all luxury vinyl flooring is created equal. However, with upgrades in design and technology over the years, you can count on these products to be the ideal choice for your project.
Count on our Lakeside Floor Coverings team to present you with the widest selection of flooring options that will all meet your needs.
We have years of experience with aesthetically traditional projects plus more custom designs with intricate patterns and design schemes.
If you opt for a herringbone, chevron, or other hardwood floor-mimicking installation pattern, you can bank on our installation team to provide stunning results!
Existing Flooring & Job Complexity
Some types of luxury vinyl flooring require the removal of the current floors.
And, if subfloors are not in the right condition, you can rely on our talented installation team to bring your old subfloor back up to par.
If your design calls for intricate specifications like niches, stairs, and unusual shapes, our trained and experienced staff are up to the task.
