Luxury Vinyl Plank and Tile are Affordable and Water-Proof!
We all love hardwood flooring, but sometimes we simply do not have the budget for this type of floor during a renovation. So what do you do if you want hardwood flooring but can’t quite afford it? Luxury plank is your answer!
Luxury vinyl tile and plank have been developed to realistically capture the natural beauty of the most popular, classic, exotic and distressed hardwoods on the market. This has resulted in a luxury vinyl plank flooring that has been made to last the test of time, while remaining very easy to care for.
One thing that is impressive about luxury vinyl plank is the fact that it comes in widths and lengths that replicate the size of a industry standard hardwood plank. This contributes to how real the floor looks. If you are looking for variety of species, you can find that most vinyl plank flooring comes in wood replications such as:
The list actually goes on and on. Basically you can find just about any type of domestic or exotic wood species in a luxury vinyl plank flooring. Options such as textured embossing and beveled edges complete the final piece of the authenticity puzzle, by enhancing the realistic hardwood flooring look.
While luxury vinyl plank flooring delivers the looks of real wood plank flooring, it comes with all the ease of premium vinyl flooring. Installation is so simple that DIYers with little or no experience can complete a new floor in an afternoon. Other than a utility knife, no special tools are required. They install over just about any surface or sub-floor: concrete, wood, existing vinyl or tile. It does not matter because these planks are designed to stick to each other and float over the top of the floor. This means a lot less trouble if you need to change the position of the planks to make minor adjustments as you go.
One of the biggest advantages of vinyl plank flooring is that it’s waterproof. This means you can install it anywhere in your home where moisture could be a problem: bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms.
Vinyl plank flooring is exceptionally durable too. It resists scratches and wear, and spills on vinyl plank flooring clean up quickly without concern over warping, stains or water damage over time. And when it comes to cleaning, a vacuum or damp mop does the trick.
