Luxury vinyl flooring and kitchens—why it’s a great fit!

Luxury vinyl flooring and kitchens—why it’s a great fit!

Luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile flooring are installed everywhere in the home, but it's particularly well-suited for kitchens. These floors are tough and durable so that heavy foot traffic won't damage the floor, food spills won't stain it, and kitchen chairs won't scuff it.

Hillside Floor Covering in Puyallup, WA, offers a large selection of versatile luxury vinyl, a floor covering that is ideal for any household, including those with children and pets.

Multi-layer flooring

Luxury vinyl is composed of four layers. The easy to clean wear layer found on the surface of planks and tiles protect the wood, stone, or ceramic image layer.

High-quality brands have a waterproof core layer beneath the image layer protected by a backing layer. As a result, waterproof LVT and LVP brands do not warp, peel, or shrink and expand even in standing water.

Good looks

Luxury vinyl is an attractive floor covering that elevates kitchen decor regardless of your decorating style. Choose textured styles that feel and look like the natural materials they mimic for the most realistic look.

Interesting floor layout patterns, such as a simple diagonal pattern or a more complex herringbone pattern, provide additional appeal.


LVP and LVT flooring is designed for a floating floor, glue-down, or loose-lay installation. Floating floors need no attachment to a subfloor to be placed over existing flooring or cement slabs. Loose lay planks and tiles butt together to create a semi-permanent floor that can be removed and reinstalled in a new location.
