Vinyl Plank vs Hardwood
Luxury vinyl flooring comes in water resistant and even waterproof options, something hardwood could never do. This makes it ideal for rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms, where getting water on the floor in inevitable. Unlike natural hardwood, luxury vinyl will not absorb moisture or water meaning your floors will not warp or swell. You can even install luxury vinyl floors in entryways without having to worry about water damage or dirt scratching the floors.
Advantages of Vinyl Plank
Some luxury vinyl options allow you to install directly over most subfloors. Some can actually be placed over existing flooring as well. You can choose a glue-down installation or a floating installation system, where the planks lock together. If you’re not looking to put a lot of effort into cleaning your floors, then luxury vinyl is a good option for you because it only requires regular maintenance such as sweeping and occasional mopping.
