Is luxury vinyl flooring an option for outdoor spaces?

Luxury vinyl flooring is stylish enough for most areas, including outdoor-type, temperature-controlled areas like sun porches.

Avoid direct sunlight

Like many other floorings, luxury vinyl flooring can fade or change color when exposed to direct sunlight. Sun's UV Rays are powerful.

Although many manufacturers include UV inhibitors to minimize the effects, blinds or shades should still be drawn. Consider it, at the very least, during the sun's most powerful times in mid-afternoon.

Heat effects 

Over 70% of the sun's rays that come through windows are turned into heat. Any form of luxury vinyl, including luxury vinyl tile or vinyl plank flooring, will expand.

That is because they all have microscopic air holes. You can't see them, but they circulate air; they are also affected when it's hot and humid.

Ideal for the outdoor type, natural decor

Luxury vinyl flooring mimics natural products, such as wood, stone, and tile. Images are taken digitally to be clear and accurate, showing knots, grains, color/veining variations, etc.

The floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks.

At our showroom, you'll see beautiful designs from companies like Mohawk's SolidTech or Proximity Mills, Tarkett, Tesoro, and more. Explore our inventory, whether you're shopping for LVT or LVP flooring.

Durability for the heaviest foot traffic

Especially if you have kids or pets or do a lot of entertaining, you'll love this: It's impossible to "walk off" the image because of a top transparent wear layer.

It protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. Luxury vinyl flooring is also 100% waterproof, whether submerged or spilled on.

Other LVT and LVP flooring benefits

It's also low maintenance and has an uncomplicated installation. Techniques are glue-down, floating floor, or loose-lay.
