Hardwood flooring is a traditional choice of flooring that looks beautiful in almost any environment. Unfortunately, the cost of installation, on-going maintenance and upkeep of hardwood flooring isn’t always made clear up front. What is already an expensive outlay can quickly mount up to an eye watering figure.

Let’s look at an example of the cost associated with hardwood flooring and answer that question, how much does hardwood flooring cost?

There is a better solution

 The great news is that the beauty of natural wood isn’t exclusive to hardwood flooring. Thanks to the marvels of modern technology, LVT flooring (like the ever popular Luvanto) is an identical replica of wood flooring, without the cost and maintenance issues associated with hardwoods.

In fact, one of the major benefits of LVT flooring is how easy it is to maintain, take a look at our frequently asked questions page to understand more about Luvanto maintenance. If you combine this with the guaranteed life span of 20 years and the look and feel of hardwood, the result is a flooring solution that is both cost effective and beautiful.
