This is a newer version of luxury vinyl, engineered to be even thicker and more durable. The original vinyl composites core is replaced with WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) cores that won’t peel or ripple no matter how much water they’re exposed to or for how long. While they both offer the same level of moisture protection, WPC has a warmer, softer, and more resilient feeling underfoot, while SPC is more firm and rigid like a hard surface. This flooring has the same high-end style with micro beveling and embossing, making it just as appropriate for the dining room as for the kitchen or bath.
