Vinyl flooring is taking Hudson homes by storm. This once-outdated material is making a comeback in a new, popular form called luxury vinyl plank, or LVP. This version of vinyl is durable, easy to install, and looks just like real hardwood flooring! Find out if LVP is right for your home by learning more from the experts at Floor Coverings International Cleveland South below.
What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Unlike sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl flooring comes in thick pieces that are typically installed in an interlocking manner. Luxury vinyl can come in tile or plank form. In the case of luxury vinyl plank, however, the pieces of vinyl come in long plank shapes and are imprinted with a realistic graining texture to give the flooring the look and feel of real hardwood. LVP comes in a variety of wood-look styles, so you can get virtually any type of hardwood species in the form of vinyl!
One of the greatest perks of luxury vinyl plank is the fact that it’s waterproof! Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl will not stain, warp, or cusp in moist environments. This makes it an ideal wood-look candidate for humid and wet rooms like the basement, kitchen, and bathroom. LVP is also a great option for families who have messy kids or pets. For rooms where you want the hardwood look but are worried about spills or moisture, go with luxury vinyl plank.
Many Hudson homeowners know just how costly and time-consuming installing a hardwood floor can be. Luxury vinyl plank eliminates this inconvenience thanks to its ability to be installed as a floating floor. The vinyl planks can be glued down and are interlocking, making them easier to install.
Affordable Wood Alternative
Not only will you save on the cost of installing LVP, but you’ll also save on the material. Like most man-made floors, luxury vinyl is more affordable than the solid hardwood that it imitates. This is not a reflection on its quality, but simply a reflection on its availability and manufacturing cost. This makes vinyl plank a great alternative to hardwood for homeowners on a budget.
