You'll often hear the words "wear layer" when shopping for luxury vinyl flooring. It's an essential component of the product's durability and makes it impossible to "walk off" the image.
Luxury vinyl is cut into two forms—Square, tile-sized pieces used mainly to echo stone and tile.
The material is also cut into planks to mimic hardwood floorboards. Whichever form you choose will have the same durability characteristics, waterproof, low maintenance, and easy installation.
About the wear layer
A clear, strong melamine wear layer is just over the printed design sheet. It protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. It even helps with waterproofing by keeping spills from absorbing.
Luxury vinyl tile also uses embossing for design options. It creates textures, finishes, and color and veining variations.
Other durability factors
It's all layered. Anything layered automatically becomes more solid, stable, and strong.
It's also completely waterproof. So, whether submerged or spilled on, there's no peeling, rippling, curling edges, or staining.
With this form, you can have marble-look floors, which are especially trending in bathrooms. But, of course, you can also get looks for slate, travertine, granite, and more.

Other luxury vinyl flooring benefits
Affordability: The squares or planks are affordable, called LVT flooring. It looks like genuine materials, but you won't pay nearly the same price. These pieces are also often installed as a floating floor. It's quick and easy and, as a result, less expensive for you.
Low maintenance: Regular sweeping and periodic mopping is all it takes to keep your floors looking great.
