5 reasons to love luxury vinyl plank flooring


One of the top trends in flooring options is luxury viny plank (LVP). Vinyl flooring is nothing new itself. Around since the 1930s and a popular, affordable option since the 1960s, vinyl flooring has seen significant improvements over the years. Available in both planks and tiles, luxury vinyl has become a top choice for many homeowners. Here are a few reasons we think you’ll love your LVP floors:

  • Water-resistant: The luxury vinyl plank flooring on today’s market is engineered to be almost 100% waterproof. This makes it a great option for bathrooms and kitchens, as well as front and back doorways where wet and muddy feet make their entrance into the building.
  • Stain-resistant: It’s not just water that we worry about in a bathroom or kitchen. Juice, wine, vinegar, makeup, and so much more can be problematic with many floors, but luxury viny plank doesn’t stain and is easy to clean.
  • Versatile: Luxury vinyl plank flooring is available in many different colors or styles, so you can easily find an option that coincides with other design elements of the room.
  • Timeless: Not only are there many options available, but most of them are a very close mimic of hardwood floors, especially when installed by trained professionals. You can feel confident that you’ll find something with a classic, neutral look you’ll still love as trends change overtime.
  • Affordable: Like the vinyl of the past, luxury vinyl plank is one of the more affordable options. It is also a simpler installation process than other flooring options, which saves you money in labor costs.
