Hardwood flooring in Woodstock, GA from Cherokee Floor Covering

Why choose hardwood flooring over vinyl?

Both hardwood and luxury vinyl plank (LVP), a trending wood look, are excellent choices, but one is genuine, the other synthetic.

What you select for hardwood flooring depends on budget, needs, and style. The best way to answer it is to compare the "pros."


Genuine wood floors are classic, timeless, and never go out of style. It's versatile enough to work with any decor and adds value to a property. In addition, it's considered the better aesthetic.

We carry both solid and engineered versions, suitable for residential and commercial use. You'll see top brands like Palmetto Road and Mohawk in our hardwood flooring showroom.

Wood looks are currently trending. Luxury vinyl offers all shades, including whitewashed and gray. The floors also come with depth, dimension, and textured looks.

Cut into planks; it mimics hardwood floorboards. This is ideal for wet rooms like the bath.

Return on investment

Wood floors give you the highest return. However, a wood look, like vinyl, will offer some perks, especially if the floor is new.

Water challenges

We spoke to someone in a storm-prone climate. She said almost everyone in the area selects LVP over hardwood because of the constant floods. LVP is entirely waterproof, whether submerged or spilled on.

Durability and lifespan

Whether you choose solid or engineered wood, it will last for decades. For example, luxury vinyl has a lifespan of 25 years; solid hardwood flooring has been known to last 100 years, while engineered can go up to 50.

When wood floors look worn or scratched, refinishing brings them back to life. However, luxury vinyl can't be refinished.
