How to Choose The Thickness of Vinyl Plank Flooring?

SPC vinyl flooring is very popular in decoration, especially home decoration and office decoration. It's waterproof and wear-resisting is favored by many customers. But do you really know how to choose the right floor thickness?

The right thickness for the right place
2–3mm vinyl tile
Opt for a thickness of 2–3mm (0.079–0.118 in) for low-traffic areas.If you're covering a small area with low traffic, you can choose planks in a thickness of 2mm (0.079 in), 2.5mm (0.098 in), or 3mm (0.12 in).Thinner vinyl planks are usually more budget-friendly, making this an inexpensive way to freshen up the look of a smaller room.
Thin vinyl can't hide imperfections in your subfloor, so you'll need to have an even concrete subfloor.
3.2-4mm vinyl plank
Select planks between 3.2–4.0 mm (0.13–0.16 in) for high-traffic areas. Most of the common areas in your home, including the living room and the kitchen, will be best suited by a high-quality plank that is either 3.2 mm (0.13 in) or 4 mm (0.16 in) thick.This thickness is a good balance of durability and affordability. In addition, it will have a somewhat soft feel beneath your feet, providing additional comfort in living areas.
5mm+ vinyl plank
Choose a thickness of 5 mm (0.20 in) or more for the highest quality. The thickest vinyl planks can be anywhere from 5 mm (0.20 in) to over 8 mm (0.31 in) thick. These planks cost the most, but they are also the most durable and usually look the most like real wood.
Thicker vinyl is a good option if you have a thin or uneven hardwood subfloor, since it will smooth out imperfections.
