Resilient wood planking is a luxury vinyl flooring that may just be the most popular choice of flooring for today’s budget-concious consumer. Unlike some flooring options, such as real hardwood flooring, resilient wood planking can literally go anywhere in your home. What does this mean for you? It means you can have the hardwood look in areas where real wood is never recommended, such as bathrooms or laundry rooms.
Resilient wood planking uses a digital photograph of a real wood plank to give the appearance of real hardwood flooring when installed. Over the years, technology has improved dramatically allowing these digitized photographs of hardwood to look extremely realistic! The digitized photo is applied to a special fiber-backing material and then finished with a protective surface over the top. This process can duplicate the look of any hardwood plank with tremendous realism, while still keeping the costs down.
