While aesthetics is one thing, there are also questions of how the flooring will hold up under everyday wear and tear. To ensure that your flooring is enjoyed for many years to come, here are five reasons to choose luxury vinyl plank  

Created to Suit any Décor

Luxury vinyl plank come in finishes that perfectly mimic the look of authentic hardwoods.  From traditional to the exotic, the attention to detail is impressive and include the same shading and textures that you have come to expect from other flooring options. Thanks to vinyl plank, you can enjoy the high-end look as well as the other benefits it offers.

With that in mind, it may not be feasible to continue with authentic hardwood into places like your basement, bathroom, or mud room. Thankfully, Luxury vinyl plank is waterproof and can be installed anywhere you want. This ensures you get the authentic look without worrying about the boards expanding or warping.

You can use it in high traffic areas, in areas prone to dirt such as entrances, and even in kitchens where spills are common. Due to the water-resistant surface, simply sweep or vacuum your floor and haul out your mop when you need a more thorough cleaning.
