Luxury vinyl plank flooring, abbreviated as LVP, is the perfect wood-look flooring option for Orlando homeowners – it’s versatile, durable, water-resistant, and visually appealing! Keep reading to learn more about this modern flooring solution.
How is LVP Different From Sheet Vinyl?
LVP is different from standard vinyl in two main ways: shape and layering. LVP is composed of many thick layers of material: a clear protective layer, a detailed design layer, and a strong backing layer. The protective layer and backing layer provide long-lasting durability, structure, and stability. The design layer provides photorealistic imaging of the material of your choosing. The plank shape of LVP also increases its similarity to real hardwood.
Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Planks
The detailed design layer of LVP ensures that it will look nearly identical to hardwood. The texture of LVP can mimic the texture of the wood grain in hardwood, so it’s even closer to the real thing.
Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl planks are highly water-resistant. The water-resistance of LVP makes it an ideal option for kitchens, mudrooms, and any area of your home prone to water exposure and spills. You can even install LVP in your bathroom!
Maintaining LVP flooring is a breeze. Sweeping and vacuuming are more than enough to keep your LVP floors clean, and damp mopping works in the event of a bigger mess. For busy homeowners, pet owners, and growing families, LVP is an ideal choice.
