Luxury Vinyl Plank vs. Hardwood Flooring

If you’ve seen luxury vinyl flooring, you know it can look nearly identical to hardwood flooring. What you may not know is why some homeowners choose luxury vinyl plank flooring and others choose hardwood.

So what exactly is luxury vinyl? It’s certainly not the vinyl kitchen flooring many of us remember from childhood. That was typically sheet vinyl, which exists today (albeit in much more beautiful patterns and colors than in decades past), and it’s an entirely different product.
