Vinyl Plank Flooring Creates Look of Wood Floors for Less Money

Vinyl flooring has more depth and texture today than it did a generation ago, so it can look like hardwood, tile and stone, and it comes in a variety of colors. Vinyl is soft underfoot, so it's comfortable to stand on for long periods. It's also warmer to the touch than hard surfaces like tile. Vinyl comes in various levels of gloss so you can get a range of looks.

Sick of your old, dated carpet or linoleum? Get the look of wood floors, but with even more durability and less maintenance, with vinyl plank flooring. This is an excellent option for homeowners with basic DIY skills.
