Compared to hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl features several different advantages. Luxury vinyl will resist scuffs and scratches from foot traffic due to its durable wear layer. The wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clear plastic film that protects the high-definition image layer, where luxury vinyl gets its looks from. Luxury vinyl planks are resistant to moisture, so unlike hardwood they will not react as much to spills and humidity. Many types of luxury vinyl planks have a cork backing, which means they can absorb noise and be installed over most subfloors.
If you have pets running around your home, then luxury vinyl flooring is for you. The durable wear layer not only resists foot traffic but can also resistant scratching from pet claws. Pet accidents are no longer an issue either; most luxury vinyl features a moisture resistant surface that can be easily cleaned.
If you choose a waterproof plank, luxury vinyl can be installed anywhere in your home. Luxury vinyl planks look authentic enough to replicate the look and feel of real hardwood, so you can install them in your bedroom and even in your living room, and they are durable enough to be installed in kitchens and bathrooms. Your guests will never be able to tell the difference unless you say something.
