Let’s talk about the versatility of luxury vinyl flooring!

It goes everywhere and suits almost every homeowner's need, two reasons luxury vinyl is so popular. But, of course, it's attractive, too, with styles that mimic other flooring materials and styles that display colorful designs.

Shop for trendy luxury vinyl plank or tile flooring for your home at Warehouse Tile & Carpet in Baltimore, Maryland.


The best luxury vinyl flooring brands are installed in any home space because they are waterproof. This stain and scratch-resistant floor covering are ideal for kitchens, entryways, and other moisture-prone areas.

In addition, if a plank or tile has a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core, it's waterproof, which means it tolerates standing water.

Click and lock

Many luxury vinyl tiles and planks are made to click and lock together so that a floating floor can be laid over a concrete or wood subfloor and most existing hard surface floors.

Underlayment, or padding, is placed beneath this type of floor to enhance its performance. If necessary, a vapor barrier that removes excess moisture from the flooring can be part of the floor upgrade.

Tough surface layer

In addition to a snap-together and water-repelling design, LVP and LVT flooring offer great versatility because it has a tough wear layer that protects the wood, stone, ceramic, or concrete image layer.

Choosing a style with a 20-mil surface layer will provide adequate protection in the busiest areas of your home. Luxury vinyl floors last 25 years or more.
