Five reasons why Florida seniors love luxury vinyl tile floors

Giving up one?s home, where there are memories of family and friends and that feeling of ?where did it all go??, is one of the most difficult aspects of moving into a retirement community.

It?s important to keep a level of familiarity and comfort. ?Luxury vinyl tile fits the bill, providing a feeling of well-being in a clean and contemporary atmosphere,? giving the resident a chance to create a unique, one-of-a-kind design, special to just him or her.

The flooring also includes just the right amount of traction to accommodate those who wear either rubber-soled shoes or leather ones, say the National Council on Aging.

Wood-look vinyl tile

When vinyl flooring is cut into tile-sized pieces, there's the comfort, and luxury, of being able to create personal, custom designs with favorite colors, shapes, and sizes; you'll be amazed when you walk into the store and see the variety.

The colors are vibrant and bold, with features like embossing that give added depth and dimension. This is aligned with the philosophy of The Villages and most retirement communities these days.? Unlike years ago, senior living spaces today don?t focus on ?end of life? but, rather, ?living life,? with all the sports, entertainment and shopping activities possible.

What's more comforting than wood? Nothing could be more contemporary, as wood is trending heavily this year. It has luxury and is warm with charm and timeless beauty.? You can get it in tile or plank.

When it's vinyl, there's no steep price tag; ask the flooring retailer what?s best for you.

Other reasons it?s so popular include:

  • Easy care.? What with the focus on golf, tennis, shopping, entertainment, restaurants and more--remember the philosophy is ?living life?--no one wants to be stuck inside scrubbing the floor. With luxury vinyl tile, all you need is a broom and a mop to clean the floors.
  • Comfort.? All vinyl is softer and less rigid than some other hard flooring, but the luxury version is even more so, and when there?s padding underneath, the tile is even more easy to stand on.
  • Waterproof durability.? Florida is no stranger when it comes to tropical storms.? Here you have the luxury of peace of mind. It's layered, and the top one is a clear plastic wear sheet that protects against scratches, scuffs, and stains.? That's great, especially when the kids, with their kids, come to visit.
  • Easy to install:? Not only is this flooring simple to install but as any retailer will tell you, it?s also DIY-friendly.? That means saving even more money.? As for installation, with a few exceptions, it can be placed over existing subfloors, then the pieces just click together.
