In residential homes, luxury vinyl flooring has become the rage, and it isn't going away anytime soon. As more homes switch from carpet to solid flooring, people are looking for something fresh and new.

Traditional hardwood is desirable, but out of the price range for many homeowners. In the fast-paced, technologically savvy world of today, people want the most bang for their buck. They want their homes to look beautiful with little effort.

Vinyl has made a comeback in the form of LVP to meet the needs of the current consumer. Those seeking a luxury vinyl plank floor are a bit confused about the selection. They have to address wear layer, thickness, and width of an LVP. It can be compared to breaking a code when selecting a luxury vinyl plank for your home. Sparx Flooring will unlock the code for you.


The thickness of a luxury vinyl plank and the wear layer thickness, are the factors that define the quality. A thin wear layer is susceptible to scratches, scars, and damage. You may ask why anyone would make that choice? Thin wear layered LVP is ok for areas of little traffic. For the floor that is lived on, do not skimp on that piece of the puzzle. Typical wear layers range from 2 mil to 28 mil.


The wear layer is not the only component of LVP thickness. It is placed above the first vinyl layer. Thick vinyl plus a thick wear layer means a high-quality luxury vinyl plank. The standard thickness of the primary layer ranges from 2 mm to over 8 mm.

Every LVP does not have to be 8 mm. Each situation has different requirements. The dimensions of a luxury vinyl plank, regarding length and width, are simpler to understand. LVP is available in the same lengths and widths as the hardwood plank it mimics.
