Considering a new floor? One of the most difficult decisions is deciding what type of flooring you want. If you are a contractor working with a client, it can also be one of their toughest decisions. For many people, the top two contenders are vinyl plank flooring, also known as luxury vinyl plank or LVP, and wood floors. While we love the look of a classic wood floor, there are plenty of benefits to vinyl flooring in New Jersey. Check them out, so you can decide if vinyl flooring is right for you.
First things first. How do they look? We think they happen to look great. LVP comes in a huge range of patterns, colors, and even textures. They can mimic the look of hardwoods, but also other surfaces, to give you the look you want, usually at a fraction of the cost of the real deal. You can find LVP to match your style, no matter what your style is. And that is just first on many benefits of vinyl flooring.
We love that vinyl flooring is waterproof. You can use them in rooms that get water like basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. They let you bring the look of wood into spaces you may be worried about using actual hardwoods. They are also pet-friendly, able to stand up to accidents.
In fact, we love vinyl’s overall durability. You have to baby some types of floors, but vinyl is designed for wear and tear. It is kid and pet friendly, and even works well in heavy traffic commercial spaces. That means that it will look great when you install it and for years to come. For homeowners, this durability is great. For contractors, it is even better, because it means happy customers who recommend your work.
Vinyl is low-maintenance. Obviously, you have to clean floors. There is no getting around that fact. However, vinyl does not require the high-maintenance routine of some other surfaces. You simply remove debris with a broom, vacuum, or microfiber sweeper. When the floor is extra dirty, you can use a damp mop and mild cleaner to make it look good as new.
Finally, we love the choices! Not long ago, LVP selection was somewhat limited. Not anymore. You can get it in just about any appearance, which means it is perfect for almost every job.
While LVP is not right for every person, it is a great flooring choice for many situations. If you want an affordable, durable, waterproof, great looking floor that blends seamlessly with your style and décor, LVP should be on your list!
