If you’re an avid DIYer and haven’t pondered the thought of installing Luxe Plank luxury vinyl in your home, maybe this post will help change your mind. Luxe Plank has the appearance of today’s most popular wood visuals, superior water resistance and when you add the ease of installation and the durability of this product, I bet you’ll seriously want to give this product a second look.

Luxe PlankI am a new homeowner and have a very active lifestyle, so I don’t have time to spend hours cleaning my floors. Plus, I have an 8-month-old Labrador retriever named “Remy”, already weighing in at 75 lbs. Luxe made it an easy decision when looking for a product to stand up to a slobber monster who has not yet learned his table manners.

LYNX Technology

Luxe is equipped with Armstrong’s patented LYNX technology offering even most beginner DIYers the ability to install Luxe themselves. Lynx technology combines peel-and-stick, pressure-sensitive adhesive tabs that are placed on the side of each plank. Luxe planks attach to one another, not the subfloor, so this eliminates the need for any fancy tools or messy adhesives.

Installation and Durability

You can install this floor virtually ANYWHERE in the home. Yes, read that sentence one more time. Luxe can be installed in any room of your home and on any grade level of flooring. With its superior resistance to water, Luxe becomes a popular choice for laundry rooms, bathrooms and kitchens, or anywhere where moisture resistance is a concern, basements included! In my house, I have Luxe installed where the Slobber Monster spends most of his time – in the kitchen.

Luxe is coated with an advanced superior UV cured-urethane top coat which makes it extremely resistant to scratching, staining, and wear. (Another advantage with Remy romping around)

Authentic Wood Visuals and Easy Maintenance

The planks also display the most authentic visuals that are seen in vinyl lines today. Luxe offers the same realistic textures, beveled edges and ends, and plank sizes that are seen within true hardwood.

There is nothing special needed to care for this flooring either. Once ‘n Done, Armstrong’s resilient floor cleaner, is the recommended routine cleaner. All that’s needed is a sponge mop and a bucket of diluted Once ‘n Done, and a quick mopping will have the floor looking great!

The simplicity of Luxe is a huge advantage when it comes to everything this product has to offer. It is definitely a product you don’t want to overlook when choosing the perfect floor for your home.

So, when it’s Luxe Plank versus the Slobber Monster, guess who wins every time?
