What is LVP Flooring?

If there’s one thing the flooring industry loves more than anything, it’s coming up with confusing industry-terms for simple things. LVP is a great example. It’s a commonly advertised term that’s confusing in wordage but is actually really simple to understand. LVP stands for Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring. Let’s breakdown each word. 

Luxury

LVPFirst “luxury” refers to a styled-vinyl versus an industrial-vinyl that was originally manufactured for commercial applications. Originally, vinyl flooring was designed for very tough flooring applications that required high-performance versus styled visuals.

Vinyl

Second “vinyl” refers to just that, a vinyl substrate. Vinyl is inherently waterproof and is one of the strongest materials that floor covering can be made from. Vinyl is actually more durable than quite a large number of tiles. That’s pretty impressive!

Plank

Third, “plank” refers to the shape of the flooring. Planks are fashioned after wood planks and are different than traditional vinyl flooring that was made in large sheets. This makes LVP a beautiful and extremely durable alternative to wood planks that are hard to maintain, prone to water damage and dent easy.

When selecting new carpet, the first big step is to determine what color will look best in your home. It’s important to mention that flooring in a home should always be nature-inspired neutral color in order to provide design flexibility. Take all the accent colors (greens, reds, blues, etc.) out of consideration. It might seem like a fun idea to decorate with accent colors, but never for your new flooring.
