Here’s one of the friendliest, most fun retirement communities, and you can see it in a lot of homes right here in The Villages, FL. Its flooring called luxury vinyl tile.
Also referred to as LVT, it’s perfect for residents of The Villages because it is:
1.It’s stylish, at a reasonable cost. Even with the 401K and other retirement savings, it’s still a fixed income because you’re no longer in the workforce. Priorities also change with retirement. Maybe you’d rather spend more time golfing than working on the house!
That doesn’t mean you don’t want high-design, though!
This material is cut into tile-sized pieces to mimic tile or stone, with all of the colors, patterns and designs of the real thing. Thanks to ever-evolving technology, the material just keeps getting better and better, with photography that’s so realistic it’s difficult for many to tell the difference, so if you have any concerns about it looking realistic, know that many have trouble telling any difference.
Mix and match to create your own unique design. Remember, some designers say flooring is the ultimate expression of personal style.
You can also get it cut into planks for a remarkably realistic look of hardwood, textures and all.
2.Waterproof. Vinyl is completely impervious to water, and in tropical storm-prone Florida, that’s a good thing, indeed. After all, who wants to spend time and money repairing a water-damaged flooring installation, when you can spend all that time on the golf course, shopping or enjoying the many restaurants and entertainment venues The Villages has to offer.
3.Easy maintenance. Just sweep or vacuum and, for a more thorough cleaning, use a mop dampened with a manufacturer-approved soap.
4.Highly durable. It can last up to 20 years, and the thicker the better. Vinyl itself is strong, and this also multi-layered which gives makes it even more resilient. A padded backing makes it more flexible, and comfortable to stand on, as opposed to other hard surfaces. There is strong, waterproof core, photographic image and an ultra-tough clear plastic wear layer that protects it from scratches and dents, making it virtually impossible to “walk off” the image.
