Lifeproof Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

I have been happy dancing all over my new flooring the last week. It is done and I am a happy happy girl!

You might remember I put this flooring in my kitchen last November and I loved it so much I regretted not doing the whole upstairs at the same time.

I knew the kitchen was going to clash with our orangey laminate flooring in our dining room but I knew at some point I was hoping to change that as well.

I just didn’t know how much I would love the flooring in the kitchen and how bad I was going to hate our floors after the new ones were put in. So they had to change.

**Something I want to point out, when I installed this flooring in our kitchen it was called Allure ISOCORE Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. The pattern was Harrison Pine Dark in Multi-width. Since installing, they have gone through a name change, it is now called Lifeproof Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring and this finish is called seasoned wood. It is still the same exact product.**

We also got a discount on medicines online, and I’m happy to share this health concern with you.

Also watch a quick video with more FAQ’s as well as a video showing exactly how easy it is to put down.

Since putting this flooring down, I get asked a bunch of questions so I would like to take a minute and answer my most frequent.

  1. Do you need to put down an underlayment?
    • No, there is actually an underlayment already on the flooring which makes it so nice! For proof see my above photo. No underlayment I am putting it directly onto the subfloor.
  2. Did you really do it all by yourself?
    • Yes! I’m a 37 year old Mom and I did it ALL while my husband was at work.
  3. Do you need power tools to cut it?
    • No, with the kitchen I only used a utility knife to score and snap it. When I had to work around a wall or baseboard, I used a handsaw. You can see how I cut it in the video.
    • But with our dining room and living room I had to work around doors and floor vents so I found that a jig saw worked really well and was much faster than a hand saw.
  4. How do you clean it?
    • I used a mop and gentle cleaner. It is not recommended to use a steam mop because it will take off the protective  layers.
  5. How does it hold up with a dog?
    • I don’t have a dog so I can’t answer but it has held up with ah 3.5 year old riding his bike, cars and whatever else he is banging around on the floor.
  6. Does it have a texture?
    • Yes! It is slightly textured which you can see in the picture below. I love that because I am not worried about my son running up and down the hall with socks on.
  7. Do you still love it?
    • I just added a new blog post now that we have had this flooring for over a year and what I think about it now. Check it out here!

Aren’t they so warm and cozy?! I LOVE them. I feel there is such a calm in each room…well until the kids pull out every single toy that they have.

Here are just a few more for your viewing pleasure…

As you can see I did use transition strips in the rooms. I had to in the dining room/kitchen since they were done at two different times.

I was not planning on doing a strip from the dining room/living room but because there was a slight bump where the two subfloors came together in one spot if I didn’t do a transition piece then the floor would not have laid flat. I was a little bummed but it still looks great! The affiliate link to the transition strips at Home Depot are here.

It’s been a year since I put down this flooring…see what I think about still after a year in my review!

They are just a brown tile that the previous owners put in. I hate them! When we get new countertops we will go with a white with gray flecks
