Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring has become increasingly popular among modern homeowners who want the classic look of hardwood, with more convenient upkeep.
Whatever flooring you choose can go a long way toward creating the ideal aesthetic for your home and when it comes to LVP, you have plenty of options to choose from.
So, how do you pick the best luxury vinyl plank flooring for your home? Browse our Landmark Interiors Look Book to find LVP that fits your home’s style. You’ll also want to consider several key factors, which we’ll explore here.
When it comes to LVP flooring, the size of the planks can affect your home almost as much as the color. Traditionally, natural hardwood floors feature long, skinny planks. However, one of the great things about luxury vinyl plank flooring is that it’s available in various dimensions, including 7” and 9” planks.
For example, the right LVP finish can give your home’s living room, bedroom, or kitchen a nice, open feeling. Many LVP floors feature planks that are 7“ wide.
However, other trims may have planks up to 9“ wide. Either one of these options can give your home the kind of design that looks modern, spacious, and stylish.
Matching Stair Trims
Another thing to consider when shopping for LVP flooring is whether or not you want matching trims throughout your home.
With its natural-looking finishes and various colors, luxury vinyl plank flooring fits in just about anywhere. Matching trims carry this aesthetic throughout your space.

Installation: Glue-Down vs Click
One practical factor to consider is how you want your home’s floors installed. Luxury vinyl plank flooring can be glued down or snapped into place. Flooring that snaps in is commonly called floating, since it’s not attached to the subfloor.
Typically, floating LVP flooring can be installed quickly and easily. Plus, it’s simple to replace later if you decide your home needs updating.
On the other hand, LVP flooring that’s glued down can reduce shifting and creaking and provide more noise-dampening effects.
LVP Features & Functionality
In addition to deciding what style and atmosphere you want for your home, it’s also smart to consider what kind of design and function you need from your home’s flooring.
Luxury vinyl plank flooring offers lots of benefits. While they vary from trim to trim, most LVP floors are easy to clean and built to last, with the following resilient qualities:
- Moisture resistance
- Stain resistance
- Fade resistance
- Wear resistance
Once you’ve picked out a luxury vinyl plank option for your home, take a look at the warranty. A good warranty should cover mistakes or malfunctions in the material in addition to durability over a set amount of time.
LVP from Landmark Interiors comes with a residential lifetime warranty, ensuring you’re able to properly maintain your home’s floors for the entirety of their use.
