Flooring is one of the key points of any room renovation, and also one of the most expensive to take on. 

WHAT ARE CARPET FLOORS?

A carpet floor is a soft floor covering made of nylon-bound carpet fibers or stapled fibers, typically consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing. Carpeting refers to wall-to-wall coverage, which is typically used indoors and can be used in both high and low-traffic areas. Due to its cushioned the right balance of safety, comfort, and performance surface, the carpet absorbs sound, adds additional warmth, and offers you a non-slip surface. It offers aesthetic pleasure. Carpets are used in office flooring tiles as it's easy to replace.

THE BENEFITS OF USING CARPET FLOORING

 

The carpet's cushioned surface absorbs sound and is less noisy to walk on than hard surface flooring. When considering affordability, carpet is one of the most economical flooring products to have installed. The insulating properties of carpet provide additional warmth underfoot during cold seasons. A carpet is a non-slip surface that is safe underfoot and provides a cushion to prevent breakage when delicate items are accidentally dropped. Most synthetic carpets are treated with static, stain, and soil-resistant treatments, making them easy to clean and maintain. Carpet comes in tiles which makes it easy to replace in case of stains.

 WHAT IS LVP FLOORING?

LVP flooring, or Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, is luxury vinyl flooring made up of planks instead of one large sheet of vinyl or individual tiles. LVP flooring is popular for the following reasons:

 

  • Easy to Install
  • Waterproof
  • Durable
  • Thick & Insulating
  • Low-Cost

The luxury vinyl flooring market has taken off primarily due to many of these benefits as homeowners look for better floors to match their lifestyles. Able to withstand heavy foot traffic, scratches, and spills, luxury vinyl planks are the ideal flooring solution for any home design. 

Characteristics of Hardwood

The growing popularity of LVP flooring isn’t just about the low cost and easy installation: the floors themselves are beautiful! High-quality LVP can resemble authentic hardwood down to the coloration and grain patterns with embossed-in-register technology and an advanced printing process. Some brands are so good at mimicking the look and feel of natural wood flooring in planks of varying colors and thickness that your friends might not believe that your LVP floors are actually luxury vinyl.

So, now that you know de differences between Carpet and LVP flooring, you can choose the one that best suits your home.
