Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring is made up of planks instead of one large sheet of vinyl or individual tiles. LVP flooring has become very popular due to many of the benefits below.
High-quality LVP can resemble authentic hardwood down to the coloration and grain patterns with embossed-in-register technology and an advanced printing process. Some brands are so good at mimicking the look and feel of natural wood flooring in planks of varying colors and thickness that your friends might not believe that your LVP floors are actually luxury vinyl.
Ease of Installation
LVP floors have a simple click-lock system that makes these floors easy for professionals to install. The benefit of having luxury vinyl planks that click together, as opposed to one large sheet of vinyl, is that they can better lock out moisture. Repairs to a floor with planks (versus one large sheet that would have to be ripped up) are more accessible, too.
All luxury vinyl plank floors are water-resistant to some extent, but even better, most LVP floors on the marketplace are waterproof, meaning they can withstand small floods and household spills. This attribute makes them a great addition to your home. LVP floors are perfect for the whole house, especially kitchens, entryways, basements or any room with high foot traffic that is prone to moisture, leaks or spills. Another bonus of LVP floors? They’re easy to clean.
One of the most popular aspects of luxury vinyl planks is their ability to withstand high traffic areas, thanks to their incredible wear layer. This product is an excellent option for homes with small children and pets running underfoot, as the rigid core floors are constructed out of plastic composite with various strengthening agents.
LVP flooring is also a great buy because of the cushion and insulation that this type of flooring provides. Unlike cheap, glue-down vinyl floors, LVP flooring won’t curl up over time. And because of the thickness of luxury vinyl planks, there is more protection offered from your home’s subfloor. If cheap vinyl is layered on a concrete subfloor, for example, the top of the floor is bound to be much colder. With LVP flooring, your feet are more cushioned—and warm!
LVP floors are an excellent choice for those looking to make an economical purchase! LVP floors are not as expensive as natural hardwood or tile, and, once installed, they require very little upkeep to keep them looking new for years to come.
