Luxury Vinyl Flooring Versus Hardwood Flooring

July 07, 2023
Luxury Vinyl
You're not alone if you're stuck between choosing luxury vinyl flooring or hardwood. Many homeowners find themselves at this crossroads, trying to determine which looks and performs better, especially if both are viable options for the remodel.

Different materials but similar aesthetic appeal

You can find LVP flooring designed to provide stunning aesthetic appeal with the look and feel of natural hardwood, which never goes out of style. Solid wood provides the “real thing,” while luxury vinyl flooring offers extensive colors, patterns, styles, and layouts which accurately mimic those found in wood flooring.

Installation process

The installation process varies wildly between hardwood and luxury vinyl flooring in Dallas, TX, with hardwood taking several days to install, including an acclimation period of one to three days. However, a luxury vinyl installation allows you to walk on your flooring the same day it’s installed, especially if you choose a floating floor with a click-lock system.

Cost differences and lifespan

Cost is another significant difference between these two products, with solid wood costing two to ten times as much as luxury vinyl flooring. Of course, there are benefits to spending more upfront, including a lifespan of more than 100 years with solid wood, as compared to about 20 years with LVP flooring.
