Why choose luxury vinyl plank

If you have had any experience at all with luxury vinyl, then you probably already know that luxury vinyl plank, also known as LVP, is a little different from the tile version (LVT). It’s also becoming increasingly popular, as it so closely resembles the real thing, solid hardwood planks.

The amazing 3D imaging technology means that you’ll hardly be able to tell you’re not actually looking at and walking on the real thing. However, that’s the only similarity LVP shares with real wood. You won’t be burdened with a heavy maintenance plan, nor will you have to worry about splitting, bowing or cracking, should temperature changes and humidity become an issue.

At Luke’s Carpet and Design Center, we know a thing or two about luxury vinyl plank flooring. And we want to pass our knowledge on to you. We are happy to be able to service the Tri-Cities area. If you have flooring questions, or would like to see some samples for yourself, we invite you to visit us. Just stop by our showroom, located in Kennewick, WA.

Luxury vinyl plank benefits

In years past, vinyl was primarily used in areas where moisture was an issue, as it was so good at resisting any damage caused by it. These days, you can place luxury vinyl plank anywhere, and with a lifespan of about twenty years, you can place it and leave it. In real world terms, LVP is known as a hard flooring, but in actuality, it has a much softer feel when you’re standing on it than a lot of other hard floorings have. For this reason alone, luxury vinyl plank is an excellent choice for kitchens. But you can also factor in the water resistance available in this material. When you’re looking for flooring as a complementing factor to an already existing décor, LVP make it an easy job. There are so many different types, styles and designs, you shouldn’t have to look long before you find the perfect thing for your home. Some people choose LVP because it’s so easy to install. There is no special subfloor prepping necessary, and it can even be installed over tile. What’s more, most planks can simply be clicked together, thanks to an interlocking system, so that no glue or nails are necessary.
