There's a new, somewhat surprising trend going on in homes across the nation; surprising because it involves the words vinyl and luxury. That's right, vinyl is now luxurious. What we are dealing with is a whole new king of vinyl, one that is indeed much more sophisticated and much more desirable than the plasticky sheet vinyl of the 70's. It is the combination of price and fantastically improved realism that is proving the defining reason for the rise. Whereas vinyl was once considered only suitable for less visible areas of a house like the laundry room or in areas where you would expect its durability and water resistance to be useful like kitchens and bathrooms, it is now being used everywhere!
