You should choose luxury vinyl flooring for its versatility when it comes to styles and patterns. Luxury vinyl is also durable, built to last, and able to resist moisture and scratching. Because of this, it's ideal in an active household with kids and pets.

No, you do not need to wax your vinyl flooring. In fact, the beauty of luxury vinyl is that it’s virtually maintenance-free.

Calculating how much vinyl flooring you’ll need for a project is easy. First, determine the total square footage of a room by multiplying the length and width of the floor. Add 5-10% to this number for waste due to additional cuts. Add more if your room has a lot of angles and corners. Next, look at how many square feet are in each box of vinyl flooring. Divide the total square footage of flooring you’ll need by the number of square feet in each box. This will tell you how many boxes you’ll need.
