Resilient vinyl floors, as the name implies, have some "give" or elasticity when you walk across them. Resilient vinyl floors are often used in kitchens and baths because of their good looks, resistance to moisture and wide variety of colors and textures.

You can completely customize your vinyl floor by mixing contrasting colors, adding vinyl floor tiles and vinyl plank flooring in a patchwork style, creating medallions or curved cuts that express your unique vision and personality.
LVT has all the advantages of vinyl, is available in a wide array of colors and can look good anywhere. Spare luxury vinyl tiles can be kept on hand to repair worn areas, and the LVT format opens up unlimited possibilities for creating your own unique patterns.
