Luxury vinyl: Not only for the kitchen or bath

It’s waterproof which makes luxury vinyl ideal for those wet rooms, but it’s also so stylish we’re seeing it on floors in every room in the house--and some very high-end ones at that.

Kissingers Floor & Wall doesn’t want to just sell flooring to you. We want to help you pull a room together and transform your home.

We love hardwood flooring. It is a classic. It fits into any environment, never goes out of style and, with proper care, it can last up to 100 years, and often just looks better with age.

Offering free estimates and measuring, as well as a no-charge installation, our showroom is in Berwick, PA and we serve Berwick, PA, Williamsport, PA, Scranton, PA, Schuylkill Haven, PA, Lehighton, PA, Millersburg, PA, Lewisburg, PA, Bloomsburg, PA, Danville, PA, and Hazleton, PA.

What’s the difference between luxury and standard?

This is a more advanced version of the standard flooring. It’s thicker, which gives it a higher level of appearance and durability. Many say it looks more like a wood plank or has a better ceramic tile feel to it.

See for yourself. We advise you to go into a flooring store, look at samples of both regular and luxury and make the vinyl comparison.

What exactly is it?

Simply, it’s a (realistic) mimic of wood, tile or stone, but you won't pay nearly the same as you would for the real material. Unlike the flat images you may remember from decades ago, these are created with 3-D printing and are vivid, showing every pattern, design, and detail.

Although you can get it in sheet, it can also be cut into planks or tile-sized pieces; some feel the extra seams give it more realism.

Smooth or textured?

With embossing, the vinyl floors can look wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered or distressed. Add a matte or gloss finish for extra luxury.

It is also:

  • Durable. While all vinyl is durable, luxury is thicker, making it even more so. The top clear plastic wear layer protects floors from scratches, stains, and scuffs.
  • Easy care. All you need is a broom, a mop, and a manufacturer-approved cleaner.
  • Affordable: You’ll have the look but won’t pay the high price!
  • Simple installation: It’s DIY-friendly, and the methods are either glue-down or click-and-lock.
