What Are The Pros and Cons of Luxury Vinyl Flooring?

Vinyl plank flooring has skyrocketed in popularity as the go-to floor covering choice not just for moisture-prone areas like kitchens and bathrooms, but for common areas, halls, and bedrooms.

One cause behind that effect is that natural, real plank wood flooring has itself become so popular. Vinyl plank flooring seeks to replicate this but in a far cheaper, do-it-yourself form. The other reason is that resilient flooring manufacturers have greatly improved the look and feel of vinyl plank, converting many buyers who previously would have avoided installing resilient materials in their homes. In short, vinyl plank flooring’s time in the sun has arrived. But is it right for you and your home?

Costing sometimes 10 times less than the organic wood counterpart might not be enough. You might question what are the pros and cons of Vinyl Flooring, so we explain to you in very simple terms. Take a look.


– Vinyl plank flooring is easy to self-install.

– Some plank vinyl flooring is inexpensive.

– Floating floor installation means that it does not need to be attached to the subfloor.


– Thin luxury vinyl plank flooring has little or no embossing.

– Vinyl plank can be hard to walk on since it has no cushioning.

– Many home buyers still view LVP as poorer quality flooring. This can bring down resale value to your home when it comes time to sell.
