  1. Thanks for the interesting post!
    I wanted to ask your opinion on what you thought about LVP as an option for basement flooring. The two main reasons I’m interested are because of the waterproof nature and the option of having Embossed in Register (ER) texture. The natural waterproof nature of LVP seems really appealing, especially if your basement floor opens out to a pool area.

    The Embossed in Register technique I mentioned is also pretty neat. I’m a huge fan of the hardwood floor look and ER captures every wooden grain of detail from the original board on to the new plank. It even works for wood knots. It makes it so you can have the same look but at a much cheaper option. The added texture also decreases slipperiness, giving you more grip for your shoes. This again sounds like a solid basement option depending on where its situated.
    I’m in the market looking around and want to make sure I buy what’s best for me! Any feedback you all can give me would great!
