Luxury Vinyl Plank
Authentic hardwood flooring is gorgeous, but it certainly has its setbacks. It can be expensive, difficult to install, and has involved maintenance requirements like periodic refinishing, polishing, and sanding. It can also be prone to warping when exposed to heavy foot traffic, moisture, and humidity. Luxury vinyl plank is a beautiful alternative to hardwood. LVP flooring is durable, easy to clean and maintain, and incredibly realistic looking. O'Briens Carpet One Floor & Home is your local source for flooring of all types. We carry the best vinyl plank floors on the market, and our vinyl flooring prices are exceptional.
Modern vinyl flooring is no longer the same product you might remember from the past. You may imagine cheap sheet vinyl flooring when you picture it, but in fact, today's vinyl is a luxury flooring item that's incredibly durable and stylish. While it's still available in sheet form, luxury vinyl is now popularly found in individually installed pieces similar to real hardwood and tile.
Many of our customers ask, "What is LVP flooring?" LVP is a type of luxury vinyl flooring that comes in the shape of long plank pieces that fit together like real hardwood. This is compared to luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, which comes in traditional, rectangular tile formats. As a newer trend in flooring, luxury vinyl planks are premium vinyl products that are quickly growing in popularity. In fact, you've probably walked over luxury vinyl planks in the recent past without realizing it wasn't real hardwood. While they usually look like wood, vinyl planks can also mimic tile and stone.
Vinyl wood flooring is the perfect solution if you'd like the look of hardwood in your kitchen or bathroom. These high-moisture areas aren't ideal for real wood, but vinyl plank floors can handle the inevitable splash and spill of kitchens and bathrooms. LVP also won't warp in response to humidity and temperature changes, so it's great for laundry rooms and entryways. Vinyl plank comes in both water-resistant and waterproof flooring options. Waterproof vinyl planks offer 100% protection from moisture and feature a specialized core to prevent liquids from reaching the subfloor and causing permanent damage.
LVP flooring is easy to install and can be put in as a floating vinyl floor or glued-down. Vinyl wood plank flooring is also exceptionally stain and abrasion-resistant thanks to a thick wear layer designed to last for many years to come.
