Can luxury vinyl flooring be installed on stairs?

Luxury vinyl is a versatile flooring material, so it's not surprising that it's become a homeowner's favorite. It can be installed everywhere in the home, including on the stairs. Choose luxury vinyl plank flooring that mimics numerous hardwood species. Or opt for ceramic or stone look luxury vinyl tile. Flooring Inspirations in Janesville, Wisconsin, provides a wide variety of the latest LVP and LVT styles. In addition, our mobile showroom can bring flooring samples to your door if you prefer.


Multiple layer luxury vinyl is waterproof when it has a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. WPC flooring includes a foaming agent, so it's somewhat softer underfoot than SPC flooring. Be sure to choose a floor covering with a thick wear layer for this well-used home area. A surface layer with a 20-mil thickness will adequately protect the wood, stone, or ceramic image layer from stains and scratches.

Stairstep installation

Manufacturers like Armstrong and Congoleum offer finishing pieces like stair nosings and treads. These pieces give stairs a high-end look. What's more, the time needed for installation is reduced with these specialty parts, which makes a flooring upgrade more budget-friendly. For landings, glue-down LVP and LVT brands are available. Click and lock brands are another option. The floating flooring fits together at the edges, so no attachment to the landing is needed.
