Luxury vinyl flooring is an attractive option that offers plenty of extra benefits for any homeowner in any space. However, we want to look at the prospect of adding luxury vinyl plank to a fireplace.

Can you put luxury vinyl plank on a fireplace? We will consider the flooring characteristics and decide whether this type of placement is worthwhile, so follow along.

Luxury vinyl uses

Specific flooring materials have particular characteristics that make them better or worse for individual applications in your home. Your fireplace should be surrounded by a material resistant to heat and flames, thus creating a safe space in your home.

While LVP is an excellent choice for many spaces throughout your home, including basements, we recommend it not be used around your fireplace when selecting a waterproof material. These materials can warp, buckle, and disintegrate when subjected to heat on a regular and ongoing basis.

Vinyl plank is an excellent addition to any space where durability, water resistance, and the classic, elegant appearance of solid wood is desired. Even in homes with pets and children, you’ll find it to be a beautiful addition, lasting many years.

For your fireplace, we will help choose a material that suits your requirements and preferences, but that also keeps you safe in the meantime. Be sure to visit us to find out more about what those materials are and how we can help add them to your home.
