Benefits and features of LVP
If you’re looking for a stylish flooring option that’s durable, economical, and customizable, vinyl plank flooring is a great way to elevate the aesthetics of your home and offers several benefits.
Another consideration when choosing LVP flooring is where to have it installed. As we’ve mentioned previously, vinyl flooring is waterproof, making it an ideal choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and even basements. However, you don’t have to limit LVP to just those areas. LVP’s durability makes it an excellent choice for just about any space in your home, especially high traffic areas or other spaces where your flooring experiences wear from pets, kids, or accidental messes.
Be careful to avoid the following to keep your LVP floors in good condition as long as possible:
Gouging and scrapes from moving furniture: Take caution not to drag furniture or appliances across your vinyl floors. Doing so can result in scrapes and gouges to the finish that can’t be removed.
Indentations: If you have heavy furniture, we recommend supporting them with wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors to prevent indentations in your flooring. Similarly, high heels are known for causing indentations and scrapes, so be sure to leave these shoes at the door.
High exposure to sunlight: Normal sunlight exposure is fine for vinyl floors, but if you live in a very sunny or hot climate, excessive sun exposure through sliding glass doors or big windows can cause vinyl floors to fade over time.
