Affordable luxury: vinyl plank and tile

This flooring will add beauty to any room in the house. It’s also waterproof, durable and budget-friendly.

Orion Flooring Inc has combined staff experience of over 25 years, and we’re not the typical online store. We have three brick and mortar showroom locations so you can see and feel the product, not just eyeball it on a piece of paper; then we ship it to any address (worldwide) that you give us.

We carry a fully stocked inventory of various flooring types, as well as products to complement your home improvement project, including stone slab, kitchen cabinets, mosaic, porcelain, glass, and art tile.

We have three showroom locations: Hesperia, Rialto, Anaheim, CA. and service surrounding areas such as Glendora and Redlands. Be sure to ask about our estimates.

What are they?

Both plank and tile are types of luxury vinyl flooring (LVF), a realistic mimic of wood, tile or stone with features, like embossing, that add a wire-brushed, hand-scraped, distressed or antiqued look.

We can thank modern technology for this look that is certainly different from the vinyl you may remember from years past. You’ll be amazed when you walk into a store and see the variety of luxury plank.

The planks mimic boards to look like wood (Some people also use planks for stone looks.) Images are taken with 3-D photography, then the vinyl is cut into strips and mounted on panels. The tiles are cut into tile-sized pieces.

While you can get luxury vinyl in sheets, many prefer the tile cuts since they feel the seams give even more realism to the appearance. Some even go so far as to use grout, to add even more realism. Talk to your retailer for more ideas.

How durable are they?

When vinyl was first introduced in the 1930s, it was praised for its high durability factor and that has only gotten better. This version is thicker, waterproof and is layered with a top clear sheet that has super-strength. It protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and stains. Even crayons, lipstick and markers wipe off easily.

Whether cut or in sheet form, vinyl floors will give you the luxury of easy cleaning as well as comfort on which to walk or stand. It’s also simple to install.
