If you are considering luxury vinyl plank for your next
flooring option, you’re in good company. Once upon a time, vinyl was well known
as a cheap flooring material that was the tight budget choice of many a homeowner.
Usually available in roll form, you could easily purchase a piece of vinyl that
would fit wall to wall with no problem. However, these days, vinyl has found a
new home in many high-end homes, commercial locations and even some resorts.
How did we arrive at this new placement for vinyl? By
manufacturing luxury vinyl planks, also known as LVP that has so many combined
benefits that it’s hard to stay away from.
Natural flooring materials are highly sought after, because
they look is so elegant and timeless. Solid hardwood and various natural stones
can add a touch to a home that nothing else can. Many flooring manufacturers
attempt this look, and LVP pulls it off better than most.
The main reasons so many people choose LVP over the natural
materials themselves are the benefits. For instance, you simply cannot place
solid hardwood floors in a basement. But luxury vinyl can be used in any space with
no problems or worry. LVP is also much more resistant to moisture, water and
stains than hardwood or stone.
