Here at Diamond Wood Floors, hardwood flooring will always be king. But there’s no denying the benefits of Luxury Vinyl Plank. We’ve worked hard to find manufacturers to work with that meet our standards of the highest quality.
For those looking to upgrade their floors, luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring is an excellent option. In the past few years, LVP has become increasingly popular for its combination of affordability, durability, and style. Here are some of the key benefits of choosing LVP for your flooring.
LVP is an extremely cost-effective solution for those interested in a luxurious look for their floors. It offers a variety of styles and patterns to meet your needs and budget. LVP provides a high end look without a high end price tag. A great option for those who want the elegance and character of hardwood floors at a fraction of the cost.
LVP is remarkably durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. It is resistant to scratches and dents, making it perfect for families with pets or children. It is also waterproof, so it can be installed in rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, or other spaces that are prone to moisture or spills. We have LVP that has a lifetime wear warranty, and our other lines also carry warranties of 10-30 years both commercial and residential.
LVP is widely available in a range of colors and patterns, making it easy to find the look that best suits your style. Most flooring companies or stores can provide samples so you can further customize and visualize your choice in the actual room. Our friends at Neptune have an online room visualizer here. It can mimic almost any look of hardwood, providing the perfect option for your design choices or room aesthetic.
