What is LVP?
The flooring industry is constantly evolving. A newer trend to the flooring world is Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring trend (LVP) – but what exactly sets it apart from hardwood and laminate floors?
All about the look
LVP has wide design flexibility, offering different design options that can mimic natural wood, stone or ceramic. The wood patterns can be embedded into the tile to give it a realistic look.
It’s made to last
LVP flooring is not only stylish, but extremely durable. It is ideal for homes with kids and pets, made from a rigid code that is also waterproof/resistant. Luxury vinyl plank flooring cannot scratch, crack or buckle over time like hardwood floors do, which means less repairs and maintenance. Since the design is protected with the wear layer of the tile, it is guarded against scratches. You can basically beat it up as much as you want, but are unlikely to damage it.
Easy to install
Who doesn’t love a simple and quick install? The luxury vinyl plank flooring can be a simple drop and lock install that won’t take you away from your home for too much time. Plus – LVP is a budget-friendly option as it can be much cheaper than your traditional hardwood flooring install.
