What is Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) Flooring?


Luxury vinyl plank flooring or LVP flooring is a versatile flooring option that suits many different types of homes. It’s popular because of its ability to mimic the look of genuine hardwood or stone without the added cost, and it can handle many kinds of wear and tear.


When you get down to the basics of luxury vinyl plank flooring, it is essentially made up of the same four layers that vinyl flooring is composed of including a backing layer, design layer, film layer, and topmost wear layer. However, where luxury vinyl planking differs is in its thicker wear layer of aluminum oxide, as this layer is more durable and better suited to hold up against household use.



Unlike sheet vinyl, which comes in large rolls and has a flexible bend to it, vinyl plank flooring is a much thicker, rigid solution. Designed in long planks with a modified tongue and groove installation system, vinyl planks mimic wood flooring quite realistically. All in all,  luxury vinyl is visually pleasing, budget-friendly, extremely durable, and, in most cases, waterproof — plus, it’s incredibly easy to clean and maintain!
