Which Luxury Vinyl Flooring is Best for Comfort and Quiet?

Sure, you want your home to be a place of refuge from the noise and bustle of the outside world. But you also want it to go easy on the outside world, environmentally speaking, with products designed for the wellbeing of people, pets and the planet. If you’re building or updating your home, you’re likely looking for materials and designs that exude comfort, quiet and sustainability without breaking the bank. Psst: making it easy to clean and 100% waterproof, kidproof and petproof wouldn’t hurt either. That’s not nearly as pie-in-the-sky as you think it is. Luxury vinyl flooring checks these boxes and looks like real wood, all at the same time. Floors designed for comfort and quiet will bring the dream to your feet, your ears, your eyes and your budget (when compared to hardwood or tile).

Vinyl Plank Flooring Enhances Warmth Underfoot

Your feet will notice the subtle yet welcome uplift in temperature with COREtec’s vinyl plank flooring when compared to other thinner or low-quality LVP flooring options. This is thanks to our patented waterproof core and attached vinyl flooring underlayment options like Soft Step. We make it from recycled materials that add a layer of soft insulation that retains heat while repelling moisture. In laboratory testing, our vinyl flooring planks with attached Soft Step underlayment measured 46% warmer than other LVP flooring options. And because it’s waterproof too, it goes just as well in the bathroom as the bedroom, living room, or kitchen—lowering your need to dread icy tootsies in the cooler months of the year. And yet, it still feels comfortably cool in the summer.

Vinyl Flooring Planks Keep it Quiet

COREtec vinyl flooring planks, with our recycled-materials-based Soft Step attached underlayment, also dampen sound 70% better than other LVP options. This is especially welcome in busy family homes with a lot of noise bouncing around. While it’s not exactly like wearing noise-canceling headphones, it does soften harsh, clattering noises like running pet claws, noisy video games or kids playing upstairs. So, go ahead and rock out to your favorite tunes without disturbance.  Essentially, this luxury vinyl plank flooring gives you the option to nudge the volume down on the ambient noise in your home. COREtec’s Soft Step vinyl flooring styles help make your home a place of peace and serenity, despite your busy daily activity.

Ash or Oak Look Vinyl Floors Illuminate Your Style

COREtec’s Soft Step is available on 19 warm, soothing, style-enhancing real-wood look options that range from a rich Midnight Oak to airy Conch Ash. One of our ash or oak-look vinyl floors is sure to fit your design scheme and lifestyle, while being incredibly easy to clean and effortless to maintain.

Vinyl Waterproof Flooring Goes Easy on Your Budget 

Speaking of which, our waterproof flooring materials save you a considerable amount of money and time. Unlike real hardwood, our waterproof vinyl flooring planks sustain no damage from water exposure and cost about half the price to install. There’s no buckling, no cupping, no warping and no need to refinish and reseal the planks constantly. COREtec’s waterproof flooring is also stain and dent resistant. Kids, pets, and splashes are welcome. Do you – live your life and don’t worry about the floor! You’ll spend a lot less time and money on maintenance, and your floors will look as fabulous for years to come.
