Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Barrie, Ontario

Vinyl flooring has transformed over the years into a luxury product that beautifully mirrors natural wood, tile, and stone. It's now the fastest growing flooring category on the market, and is quickly becoming a staple in homes, businesses, rentals, apartments, and many other settings. In fact, you've probably stepped onto luxury vinyl in the recent past without realizing that it wasn't real hardwood or tile.


At Irvine Carpet One Floor & Home, we strive to bring you flooring that fits your lifestyle and decor vision. We carry an impressive inventory of LV flooring from today's top brands. We also offer competitive vinyl flooring prices and exceptional customer service that you won't find anywhere else. Visit one of our Barrie, Ontario, showroom locations to learn more.



Types of Vinyl Flooring

There are three main forms of vinyl available today: luxury vinyl tile, luxury vinyl plank, and sheet vinyl. Unlike sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl planks and tiles come in the form of individual pieces that mirror hardwood planks and natural tile shapes. High-definition imaging and texturing are used to create a near-perfect replica of these natural floors. A more robust construction also means your vinyl will last longer.



Luxury Vinyl Tiles

LV tiles come in all the same shapes and sizes of real tile and stone. Stone-look vinyl features visuals like marble, limestone, and slate, while tile styles resemble porcelain and ceramic. LVT is ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and commercial settings. It often features a cushioned core or underlayment that makes it softer underfoot than real tile, and more comfortable to stand and walk on. This also helps absorb noise like high heels and pet claws, adding to a quieter and calmer environment. Additionally, vinyl won’t chip or crack the way real tile can if something is dropped on it or an accident occurs.



Luxury Vinyl Planks

Vinyl planks are quickly becoming a mainstay in many homes and businesses. Each plank features rich hardwood visuals with matching textures. Elegant grain swirls, knots, and warm natural shades create a beautiful floor that can handle busy, moisture-prone environments. Unlike solid hardwood, LVP won’t warp, swell, crack, and cup in response to humidity and spills. It’s a great choice if you want a wood floor look in your kitchen, bathroom, restaurant, or another location that’s exposed to high moisture levels. Vinyl planks are also easier to maintain than real hardwood. They never need to be sanded, refinished, waxed, or polished. Luxury vinyl flooring also has a thick wear layer that’s exceptionally stain and abrasion-resistant.



Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?

All luxury vinyl provides some level of moisture protection. We also have completely waterproof products. Waterproof flooring has a unique construction that prevents leaks from moving below the floor, as well as warping from humidity and spills. Waterproof vinyl planks are perfect if you want the look of hardwood floors in your bathroom or kitchen. Likewise, waterproof stone vinyl flooring and tiles are ideal for entranceways, hallways, and restrooms.



Where Can Vinyl Flooring Be Installed?

We offer glue-down and interlocking vinyl flooring products for easy, versatile installations. You can install vinyl essentially anywhere, including busy, moisture-prone settings. Our commercial vinyl plank flooring is perfect for restaurants, cafes, downtown shops, and any business looking for a moisture-repellent, wood look option. Meanwhile, wide plank vinyl flooring looks beautiful in kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms, while stone look vinyl flooring is an affordable alternative to natural stone tiles for mudrooms and hallways.



How is Vinyl Flooring Installed?

Let’s face it: your new flooring represents a serious investment. Indeed, the condition of your property’s floors can have a major impact on its value, for better or for worse. The great news is that most of today’s luxury vinyl is relatively simple to install. Some types of tiles and planks readily click together for a “floating” floor, with no adhesive required. On the flip side, certain types of luxury vinyl, including sheet vinyl, must be directly glued to the subfloor. For some homeowners, this is a reasonable process that can be completed independently, with a little elbow grease and patience. However, if that doesn’t apply to you, we’re always here to help! With our installation team comprised of some of the region’s most seasoned professionals, perfection is our passion and we’ve got all the right tools to finish your floor.
