Luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring, or LVT flooring, is a great alternative flooring to more expensive flooring options such as traditional ceramic tile, stone, or hardwood. LVT flooring has many benefits and can be a great option for many homeowners, being economical, low maintenance, and durable. Let’s look at some of the benefits in more detail.
LVT flooring is an economical choice, being more affordable than hardwood and tile, without sacrificing appearance. LVT flooring is designed to look just like stone, tile, or hardwood, but at a significantly lower cost.
The cost of LVT makes it a good option for homeowners who don’t have the money to invest in solid hardwood, or stone tile. The affordability of LVT however, doesn’t have any negative impact on its durability, appearance, or longevity.
LVT is also easier to maintain than traditional flooring materials, such as hardwood or tile. LVT is highly durable, stain and scratch resistant, and won’t need to be restained, refinished, or re-grouted over time. In addition to the durability of LVT, another benefit is the ease at which a damaged piece of flooring can be replaced, should the need arise.
While damages to the flooring are less likely than with wood or tile, sometimes things do happen. In the case of LVT flooring, the damaged piece can be removed and a perfectly matched piece put in its place. Unlike with hardwood, which changes in color over time due to light and wear, LVT will retain its finish over time.
In addition to being affordable and durable, LVT flooring also comes in a wide variety of styles and finishes. With LVT the options are endless, and it has been perfectly designed to look just like tile or hardwood. Because the flooring is engineered, the finish and options available far exceed what may be available with traditional flooring materials.
