Hardwood flooring in Paramus, NJ from G. Fried Flooring & Design

Should I choose hardwood or luxury vinyl plank flooring?

A desire for the appearance of hardwood flooring can leave you asking yourself whether you want the real thing or a wood-look option. Unfortunately, the answer is not entirely straightforward but rather depends on your preferences and requirements.

In today’s post, we will give you some information to consider that should help with your decision. Read along to find out more about both products.

Wood flooring is a great choice

Solid hardwood flooring
is highly sought after, primarily because the materials offer a lifespan that averages 100 years or more and gives you plenty of options for personalization. The species you choose runs through and through, taking the stain and finish type of your choice.

Engineered flooring is another real-wood option that places a layer of natural wood on top of layers of plywood for outstanding performance and stability. You can still make a wide variety of selections to achieve the overall look and durability you want and need.

Luxury vinyl plank
is not a natural wood product but creates the realistic appearance of the material, thanks to 3D laser image technology. This material also offers a simpler installation, allowing you to enjoy your new flooring sooner.
