Indeed, there is. While flooring will resist water to one degree or another, waterproof vinyl flooring is genuinely waterproof in every sense of the term.

What is meant by waterproof?

It’s not a sales gimmick if that is what you are wondering. No, to be waterproof, two criteria must be met. The first is that the floor must not be harmed or damaged by the presence of water (a lot or a little). That means moisture cannot cause it to swell, warp, bend, stain, discolor, or lose its structural integrity. You can practically throw this stuff in the bathtub overnight and then pull it out, dry it off, and use it the next morning. The second criterion is that it must not let water pass through it to the subfloor below.


Luxury vinyl plank flooring and luxury vinyl tile flooring is the way to go. These materials are totally and fully waterproof, plus they are beautiful when properly laid on the floor. The plank flooring is designed to look and feel like hardwood, and the tile is similarly intended to look and feel like ceramic, porcelain, and stone tile flooring. These materials look good enough that they will likely fool most of your guests.

Not only are these floors beautiful to behold, but they are also durable. They have a strong wear-layer designed to resist scratches and scuffing from active daily life wear and tear. Also, were a scratch to be made accidentally, they commonly blend into the design's texture, making them unnoticeable.

Every room of the house

Waterproof vinyl flooring is durable enough, attractive enough, and resilient enough to be used in any room in your house. Some are designed to look more formal, and others are designed to give a more casual look and feel. Whether you need a waterproof application or are merely looking for attractive and affordable flooring material, luxury vinyl is an excellent option to choose from.
