THINGS WE LIKE: LVP floors
LVP stands for Luxury Vinyl Plank and is a type of flooring that has been available on the market for a while. It resembles hardwood and comes in planks like regular wood or laminate flooring. Vinyl plank floor has seen major improvements in terms of quality and looks over the last few years.
Here are the pros and cons of using LVP that can help you decide whether it’s the right pick for your project:
LVP is budget-friendly
Right now many vinyls are completely waterproof making it a great flooring choice for entryways, bathrooms and kitchens
Vinyl plank can be installed directly on top of your subfloor, so the installation process is quick, cost-effective and easy
LVP is sturdy, long-lasting and scratch resistant: it is an ideal type of flooring for households with young children and pets
Vinyl planks can be installed over heated floors and are, therefore, great for basements
LVP floors we specify for our projects have an applied under pad which provides an extra cushioning, insulation and acoustic value
Unlike hardwood, vinyl does not add much resale value to your house, so you may reconsider using it if resale is an important consideration
Cheap "vinyl" stigma surrounds vinyl flooring: this is slowly changing as the general public becomes more familiar with the new type of LVP available on the market
Overall LVP is a very practical floor and our clients love that it is extremely durable and waterproof.
