Powder Springs area kitchen with luxury vinyl plank flooringHomeowners in the greater Powder Springs area are discovering the versatility of luxury vinyl plank floors. This high-performing flooring option combines the durability and water resistant qualities of vinyl with the look and feel of natural hardwoods, all at a cost that won’t break the bank. What’s more? This combination allows you to achieve that wood look we love in areas off limits to natural wood. At Floor Coverings International West Metro Atlanta, we love luxury vinyl plank and want you to know 3 great places in your home where you can install it.

1.   Bathrooms

As you know, your bathroom is a high-traffic room that has a lot of moisture. While hardwoods can’t handle the humidity, luxury vinyl plank’s vinyl construction creates a water resistant surface that’s great for bathrooms. It’s high-quality graphic and textured layer gives you the look of hardwood, and you won’t have to worry about the planks expanding and warping over time. If tile is more your style, consider installing luxury vinyl tile to achieve the look of granite or marble stone.

2.   Kitchens

While there is some debate as to whether hardwood floors should be installed in kitchens, with vinyl plank, you don’t have to worry. These floors are tough enough to handle the traffic and occasional drips and spills, and soft enough to provide comfort underfoot while you cook. The individual planks are also available in a number of shapes, sizes, and finishes, so you’re able to achieve the look of hardwoods in standard or wide plank formats with matte, gloss, or even distressed finishes.

3.   Basements

When it comes to flooring, one of the toughest areas of a home is a below-grade basement. The extra humidity combined with concrete slab subfloor is often unsuitable for materials like hardwood or carpets, and not always warm enough for tile. Luckily, luxury vinyl plank can be installed directly over a level and crack free concrete slab, or floated over existing flooring. If you have a basement den or playroom, your family will also love the softer, warmer surface that it provides.
