Luxury vinyl is a tough flooring material that is difficult to stain or scratch. As a result, it's one of the best floor coverings for households, including pets. In particular, pet owners like the easy-to-clean surface and the waterproof core found in the best brands. The trendiest luxury vinyl styles are available at House of Color in Findlay, Ohio.

Wear layer

A luxury vinyl plank and a luxury vinyl tile have four layers. The transparent wear layer is situated over the image, core, and backing layers. Choose LVP or LVT flooring that has a thick surface layer to protect the wood, ceramic, or stone image layer, and your floor will have a long lifespan. Top brands feature a wear layer that has a 20-mil+ thickness.

Surface types

Luxury vinyl can have a smooth surface or embossed, so it feels like the material it imitates. Textured LVP is particularly popular. Standard embossing is applied randomly to the plank. But Embossed in Register brands features embossing that precisely matches the wood grain pictured on the plank. EIR brands capture the most authentic natural wood look.


Floating floor luxury vinyl connects, so no attachment to the subfloor is necessary. This means that the flooring can easily be laid on a cement slab or existing hard surface floor. First, padding is placed on the subfloor, making the floor covering more comfortable for you and your pet to walk on. Glue-down planks and tiles are also available.
