re: Cost of new floors
IMO LVP is really awesome for:

- Laundry rooms
- Certain kinds of bathrooms or bedrooms
- Bonus rooms
- Play rooms
- Mud rooms
- Home gyms
- Rent houses

I personally would not prefer it in my living room, kitchen, master bed/bath.

re: Cost of new floors
We bought a house in that price range a few months ago. We replaced all the carpet in the downstairs bedrooms and all the upstairs with vinyl planks. We used Corelock. We got it from a local wholesale flooring company for $2.39/ft. The one we chose was an SPC which is a stone-plastic composite. We have 2 small kids so we wanted something durable, easy to clean and waterproof.

What would you suggest for “wood” like flooring?

Porcelain or ceramic wood plank, higher cost and install though.

Right, so basically places you don’t want people to see.

The problem is people get to the end of the project and flooring is always the last thing when the budget is tight and it’s an “easy” way to save money.

re: Cost of new floors
We have white oak wood floors and 3 dogs (2 big, 1 small). When we get ready to move the floors will need to be refinished but after 12 yrs they would need to be regardless of dogs or not.

We did install in the master bedroom since the floors were carpet and it was very expensive. Like $3-4k for a room that’s around 20x20 maybe a little bigger.

re: Cost of new floors
Lvt floors are basically the sweatpants of flooring. Comfortable, cheap, easy to maintain, not really for public areas. They basically say I’m lazy and gave up on trying.

I just put down Coretec HD Plus.


I just built a house that, sadly, cost me way more than $350K and I have this in my house, and so far so good.
