top five benefits of LVP flooring

We all know about wood floors, tile, carpet, and even laminate, but what about luxury vinyl plank flooring (better known as LVP)? 

We thought you’d never ask!

Here are some of the reasons why we love LVP for both residential and commercial use…

It’s Waterproof

Unlike any of its competitors, LVP is completely waterproof, which means it’s ideal for spaces where you might find water: bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and laundry rooms, for example.

LVP Benefit - Waterproof Flooring

With LVP, the materials and the way that the planks fit together mean that you won’t have to worry about unexpected flooding ruining your floors. You won’t be upset if you discover a water spill or pet accident that wasn’t cleaned up immediately. Luxury vinyl flooring can handle whatever (liquid) you can throw at it, which makes it unique in the world of flooring. 

It’s Durable

Luxury vinyl flooring is designed to last, no matter what sort of environment it finds itself in. Thanks to a rigid core layer and a scratch-resistant, dent-resistant top layer, LVP flooring can stand up to heavy foot traffic, which makes it a great choice for homes with kids and pets AND for stores and restaurants.

It’s Low-Maintenance

One of our favorite things about LVP is that it’s so easy to care for! As long as you keep it swept and give it a once-weekly mopping, you’ll find that it will continue to look amazing for as long as you own it.

It doesn’t require any fancy products or specialized cleaners, either. When it comes to the flooring world, LVP is as down-to-earth as you can find!

It’s Affordable

Stacked against the competition, LVP is a standout in the price category. Who knew you could get good-looking, easy-to-maintain, sturdy flooring without breaking the bank?

It’s Beautiful

And last but not least...did we mention how amazing LVP looks? It’s got a realistic wood grain finish without any of the hassles of dealing with wood floors. Win-win! No matter your aesthetic, there’s an LVP option that will perfectly complement your design vision.

In its early days, vinyl flooring that looks like hardwood was a sad imitation of the original. Real wood planks boast plenty of natural color variability, inconsistent knots, and grain markings, but vinyl or laminate floors didn’t quite hit the realism mark. We’re happy to report that modern LVP flooring is nearly indistinguishable from the real deal, and it comes with some clear advantages over hardwoods.
