Wood look flooring continues to be a popular trend, and is not going away any time soon. With wood look flooring, you can have the best of both worlds. You can have the luxurious looks of natural wood flooring with the added benefit of them being resilient. Luxury vinyl plank flooring also comes in tile look options, so you can have unique tile look plank flooring in your home.
Luxury vinyl is known to be durable; the wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clear plastic film that protects the high-definition image layer, where luxury vinyl gets its looks from. Luxury vinyl planks are resistant to moisture, so unlike hardwood they will not react as much to spills and humidity. Some types of luxury vinyl options feature a cushioned backing, so they can absorb noise and be installed over most subfloors. If pets are a part of your family, then luxury vinyl is a great option for your home. The durable wear layer is resistant to scratching, so it can handle pet claws. Pet accidents are no longer an issue either; most luxury vinyl features a moisture resistant surface that can be easily cleaned.
If you choose a waterproof plank, luxury vinyl can be installed anywhere in your home. Luxury vinyl planks look authentic enough to replicate the look and feel of real hardwood, so you can install them in your bedroom and even in your living room, and they are durable enough to be installed in kitchens and bathrooms. Your guests will never be able to tell the difference.
