Laminate Vinyl Plank Flooring Looks Like Real Wood

By Paige Cerulli Created: November, 2022

While hardwood flooring makes a beautiful addition to a home, its cost and high maintenance needs often make it an impractical choice. Laminate vinyl plank flooring gives you the same look as wood flooring, but it’s often a much better and more practical option.

What Is a Laminate Vinyl Plank?

When you compare laminate vinyl planks versus traditional wood flooring, it’s easy to see that laminate vinyl plank offers several key benefits that make it a desirable choice. The first main difference is in the product’s construction.

Laminate planks are made of multiple layers of synthetic materials. An interior core board creates stability, and is topped with a decorative image, often with a luxury finish.

The planks also feature a top layer that adds protection and durability. That wear layer helps to protect the plank against wear and scratches, as well as moisture.

Laminate vinyl plank flooring is affordably priced, particularly when compared to the cost of genuine hardwood flooring. The long plank design creates a look that is highly similar to wood floor planks, and you’ll also find that planks are available in different dimensions for unique looks.

These planks are much more comfortable underfoot than wood flooring is, and some of these planks are designed so that you can install them on your own. They are often used in residential and commercial settings that need a durable flooring product that creates a beautiful aesthetic.
