Love and marriage, milk and cookies, law and order. We all recognize these pairings, but luxury and vinyl are two words I never thought would appear together, especially when describing flooring.

Adding Luxury Vinyl Floors to Your House

When my best friend moved to Florida, I flew down to help her get settled in her new house. As soon as I stepped into the foyer, I was greeted by an odd smell and some wood-look, plank flooring that I could not identify. It turned out to be vinyl, with its volatile organic compounds (VOCs) still off-gassing from recent installation.

This kind of artificial flooring has been around since the 1800s and used to contain asbestos, although the carcinogen was phased out of the manufacturing process in the 1980s. The luxury vinyl floors product I saw was known as Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) and was entirely unlike the sheet flooring that used to be installed in our kitchens and bathrooms of yesteryear.
