Walk into any flooring store these days and the one product the salesperson can't wait to tell you about is the new luxury vinyl plank or luxury vinyl tile flooring (also known as LVP and LVT). LVP and LVT flooring is a cost-effective plank or tile style resilient-vinyl flooring that can be installed anywhere since it is water-resistant and can withstand high traffic areas. It does not require an underlayment padding and the joints will not swell or buckle due to moisture.
When shopping around for flooring for our new home we wanted to avoid traditional tile floors because they are so cold, carpeting because it attracts dirt, and we also did not want to spend the money on hardwood floors. We wanted to use the same flooring throughout because neither my husband or I like the choppy look of different flooring materials when you go from room to room. Because LVP and LVT is water-resistant, it was the best choice for our new home since it can be used in all rooms including bathrooms.
