Luxury vinyl floors offer so many different looks that you may have a hard time picking your favorite. Hardwood, stone and ceramic flooring each have vast differences, and you can choose a luxury vinyl that looks like just about any of them.
One of the reasons people are starting to choose luxury vinyl over the real thing is price. Cheaper than actual solid hardwood or real stone, vinyl also has more advantages than their counterparts do.
Luxury vinyl plank looks so much like real solid hardwood, most people won’t even know the difference unless you point it out. However, unlike solid wood, you can install LVP just about anywhere in your home.
The excellent water resistance means it’s a great choice for bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, mudrooms and more. You can even put it in the basement with little worry. And unlike real wood, you never have to be concerned that it will contract or expand with excessive humidity.
While the subfloor plays a big part in installing new floors, you won’t have to worry as much when installing LVP. The biggest factor is the thickness of your new floor. Thinner vinyl planks are not good over subfloors that are extremely uneven. In this instance, you will want to choose thicker planks, which can even out the floor quite well.
