Does luxury vinyl tile look cheap?

It's cheap and water resistant, but it also doesn't have a great reputation because it can look and feel cheap. Luxury vinyl took the vinyl core but added other layers to create the planks and tiles. This makes a floor that is still relatively inexpensive but is more durable and better looking than traditional vinyl.

Does LVP flooring increase home value?

If resale value plays into your decision-making, vinyl isn't the best choice. Vinyl flooring will not raise the value of your home (in most cases). On the flip-side, vinyl is a budget-friendly improvement. If you're replacing stained carpeting or worn/dirty linoleum, new floors will help your home sell.
