For the longest time, upgrading to luxury flooring in your home meant getting hardwood flooring. While hardwood flooring looks fabulous in any home, it isn’t always the best fit for every situation. Now there’s another option that allows you to upgrade your flooring to the look and feel of luxury with better pricing and a few other benefits too: vinyl flooring.

Hardwood vs. Vinyl Flooring: Which is Right for You?

Here is how vinyl flooring compares to hardwood flooring to help you decide which flooring option might be the better choice for you:

  • Appearance: In the past, vinyl flooring was often seen as the unattractive patterned flooring that trademarked outdated homes. Now, we have vinyl plank flooring that can mimic the appearance of high-end tiles or even hardwood flooring. You can get the naturally beautiful appearance of textured, wooden planks from both vinyl and hardwood flooring.
  • Durability: Hardwood flooring is known for its durability that can withstand high foot traffic and even the most rambunctious pets or children. Vinyl flooring is also highly durable, but it can withstand spills and staining with impressive water resistance. This makes it perfect for any room in the house, including the kitchen or bathroom, whereas hardwood flooring is often better in lower-moisture areas of the house.
  • Pricing: While we work hard to offer the most affordable pricing for our hardwood flooring, the low price point for vinyl flooring is hard to beat. Hardwood flooring is a great luxury item, while vinyl flooring is great for anyone redoing their flooring on a budget.

Both hardwood and vinyl flooring are great options for your home. It really depends on your budget, lifestyle, and needs for your flooring. Contact us today at Express Affordable Flooring if you would like to learn more about either flooring material.
