Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring Reviews Present a New View

Have you heard that luxury vinyl plank flooring is durable and long-lasting? Did you see with your own eyes the way it warms a room? Regardless of what you’ve heard or seen, why not learn what the experts have to say before purchasing this flooring option for your own home? Find out about what industry insiders and residential home-buyers think by referencing luxury vinyl plank flooring reviews.


An HGTV feature story referred to modern-day luxury vinyl as “not your father’s vinyl.” It’s an accurate appraisal. The vinyl of yesteryear is not typically touted in terms of “luxury,” and, by today’s standards, would not be a tempting decorative choice. After all, vinyl dating back to the 60s and 70s was funky! Although shades of mustard and brown were trendy then, preferences have since evolved. And, aside from questionable color palettes, traditional vinyl was made in sheets, not planks.

Today, luxury vinyl plank floors resemble hardwood and other high-quality material. And, in some ways, vinyl planks are superior to hardwood floors and porcelain tiles. Whereas real wood can warp as a result of moisture, luxury vinyl planks are often waterproof, or at the very least, water resistant.

What else do industry insiders have to say about luxury vinyl plank flooring? Here’s the consensus:

  • It Looks and Feels Durable
    Luxury or engineered vinyl mirrors hardwood in appearance and measures closest to real wood flooring at eight mm thickness per plank.
  • It’s Easy to Install
    Unlike other types of flooring, luxury vinyl planks click together and can be affixed directly to a subfloor or another type of existing flooring.
  • It’s Cost Effective
    While it depends on the brand and type of luxury vinyl plank, the average cost overall is $8 per square foot, half the cost of a square foot of hardwood.
  • It Offers a Variety of Attractive Styles
    Unlike its predecessor, modern vinyl planks come in a variety of styles and colors. In addition to planks that mimic hardwood, there are also vinyl flooring options that resemble stone.
  • It’s Resilient and Easy to Maintain
    Real wood can warp and become damaged as a result of prolonged water exposure. Stone and porcelain tile can chip crack. However, luxury vinyl is more difficult to damage. As previously mentioned, luxury vinyl planks are typically either waterproof or water resistant.
