5 Reasons Why I Love This Kind of Flooring
Flooring – it seems like a pretty straight-forward material to pick for your home, but it’s not always that simple. When you combine all the aesthetic choices with what kind of material will work best for your home, the possibilities are truly endless. But I use the same kind of flooring in about 99% of all my home projects, and nope, it’s not hardwood. It’s Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. If you’re like, “What? Seriously?” hear me out, guys. I’ve found that this type of flooring works for almost all kinds of people and almost all kinds of homes, and it looks just like a beautiful hardwood. Because allow me to let you in on another little secret: hardwood flooring is easy to damage.
Here are the 5 reasons why I pick luxury vinyl flooring for almost every project I do!
1. It’s Durable
Perhaps the biggest and most important reason I use this material so often is because luxury vinyl flooring is super durable and waterproof. Hardwood floors, not so much. But if you have kids and pets, or a lot of foot traffic in general in your home, luxury vinyl flooring is the way to go. Here’s what I used in the kitchen above.
2. It’s Pretty
Luxury vinyl flooring is designed to have the look of real wood, and let me tell you, it really does. No one would ever know it’s vinyl (if you pick the right kind)! Here’s the one I used in the picture above.
3. It’s Affordable
Like… WAY cheaper than hardwood flooring. Especially if you have a lot of space to cover, using luxury vinyl flooring will be a lot more budget-friendly. Need I say more?! Here’s the flooring I used above.
4. It’s Fireproof
There are a lot of brands that make fireproof luxury vinyl flooring, which is great peace of mind for your home. This is the type I used above.
5. It’s Easy to Install
Luxury Vinyl Flooring is extremely easy to install, and sometimes a professional installer is not necessarily needed if you’re really handy. Installing is also glue-less, so that’s another win! Here’s what I used above.
