Your kitchen floor, in addition to complementing the interior design style of your home, needs to be easy to clean and durable, as well. The floor you choose has to be practical considering that it has to stand up regular spills and stains, withstand lots of foot traffic, and make a great statement while doing it.

Luxury WPC vinyl is one of the fastest growing trends in floor covering options that will become increasingly popular over the next several years, or until the next innovation.

Luxury WPC Is Different from Traditional Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT).

 

The main difference is that Luxury WPC is waterproof and can go over most subfloors without much preparation. Traditional vinyl floors are flexible and any unevenness in the subfloor will transfer through the surface. Compared to traditional glue-down LVT or solid-locking LVT, Luxury WPC products have a distinct advantage because the rigid core hides subfloor imperfections. In addition, the rigid core allows for longer and wider formats. With Luxury WPC, it is not necessary to worry about the preparation Luxury WPC would require for use over cracks and divots in concrete or wooden subfloors.
