Is LVP flooring an option for outdoor spaces?

Is LVP flooring an option for outdoor spaces?

The answer is yes if you install your luxury vinyl flooring in a temperature-controlled outdoor space. These would include sun porches, enclosed patios, or other "outdoor" areas where you can control hot or cold temperatures. Read on to learn more. 


It's waterproof but can expand in humidity


Luxury vinyl flooring
has tiny holes that circulate air. You can see them, but it will cause the material to expand when the air is moist; alternatively, it can shrink when dry.

Even if it comes from a warehouse down the street from your home, the temperature can vary greatly, especially with the weather and your home's climate.


Style-wise, great for any indoor room


Vinyl plank flooring refers to cutting the material into strips to mimic hardwood floorboards. Alternatively, it can be cut into square, tile-sized pieces (LVT flooring), mainly used to imitate marble, other stones, and ceramic tile.

Luxury vinyl flooring features vibrant, true-to-life, nature-inspired images. Since it follows all the trends, you can sort through the hundreds of photos to find something for any decor. 

The floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks. We carry wood like Firmfit Gold/Ancient Oak by Chesapeake or marble-looks like Trecento Calacatta by MSI.


Extreme function


  1. Durability. Whether you choose LVT or LVP flooring, you can be sure of getting a five-times thicker product than the original. It's layered with a strong, clear coating that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. The product is also waterproof from bottom to top. It can be submerged or spilled on.
  2. Low maintenance. Luxury vinyl flooring needs only regular sweeping and periodic mopping.
  3. Uncomplicated installation. The pieces can be glued or installed to float.
