A LOOK AT THE NEW, MODERN LUXURY VINYL FLOORING
IVC Moduleo Luxury Vinyl Tile is in a flooring idealism battle. Vinyl flooring has an unfairly imposed and outdated bad reputation. Even mentioning it to my friends has made me receive dirty looks and raised eyebrows. We all imagine the sad, tired vinyl of the 1970s and 1980s… pock marks, peeling edges, and various textures that would never pass as a reasonable facsimile for wood or tile, let alone decent flooring.
Yesterday’s vinyl flooring installation required messy glue and lots of it. It was difficult to properly care for and quickly looked worn and ragged. Well, today’s vinyl showed up with a million-dollar makeover, and it’s looking quite sexy. It’s hard to believe, but vinyl is not only looking good but also making hardwood, tile, and laminate stand up and take notice. Of course, vinyl flooring is just like everything else. There is a definite range of quality, and one must be careful in selecting quality flooring that meets certain criteria.
There are several brands that offer modern, affordable luxury vinyl flooring, but our top pick for this month is Moduleo Luxury Vinyl Flooring from IVC. Here are the top 10 reasons why:
- Variety Show
Moduleo offers two looks—stone and wood—with seemingly endless color and texture options. As they offer more color options than most other flooring manufacturers, you can really hone in on your unique style.
- Slipping Away
Moduleo is slip resistant even when wet. It’s quite a claim, backed by laboratory testing and lots of happy customers. Retail outlets are among the happiest of those customers, strategically utilizing Moduleo flooring to minimize slip and fall claims among their customers.
- Quiet Victory
Moduleo Luxury Vinyl Flooring is nearly soundproof thanks to its material composition. Without any additional underlayment, Moduleo Luxury Vinyl is whisper quiet. Beat that, tile, laminate, and hardwood!
