  1. Elizabeth says:

    Are you still enjoying these floors? Anything g you donโ€™t like about them?

    • Hi Elizabeth,
      We’ve absolutely loved them! No complaints so far. We’ve been in our home for about a year and a half and we still don’t have any scratches, even with 4 little kids, 2 dogs and me moving furniture around all the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Sarah says:

    Do you know if your LVP was floated or glued down?

  3. Annie says:

    Iโ€™m trying to find where to buy your flooring but having such a hard time! It doesnโ€™t look like my local ProSource carries Paradigm and I canโ€™t seem to find anywhere that has it ๐Ÿ™

  4. Lynnette says:

    Can you please share the wall color you used and the white countertop in the kitchen.
    Would gray furniture and accents go with this flooring?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Lynnette! Counters are Mont Blanc Quartzite and cabinets and walls are Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace. Lime washed brick is Avario White by Romabio. Hope this helps!

  5. Ami says:

    Love the flooring color. Which paradigm color you chose? Thank you

    Hi Lindsey. Do you find the finish shreds socks and kids clothings? Seems to be a common problem with durable LVP.

  7. Julie says:

    Hi Lindsey! Thanks for sharing info about how you clean your LVP. Have you noticed any issues with dirt/crumbs/flour being difficult to pick up with the Embossed in Register texture/bevels? We do a fair amount of cooking/baking and gravity is strong in our kitchen :). I love the look of the microbevels and woodgrain but am nervous about whether they act as dust catchers. Thanks for any info you can share and for letting us have a glimpse of your beautiful home!

    • Hi Julie,
      We haven’t had any issues with dust or buildup in the mircobevels. I’ve never noticed anything sticking to them before. I did have one spot in our pantry where the kids snuck some chocolate chips and they melted on the floor. That did take a little scrubbing by hand (not much!) to get it out of the woodgrain. Other than that all the other splatters have come up super easy with the Spinwave. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully that’s helpful.

    Love the kitchen chairs where can I find those?

    Hi Lindsey,
    Thank you for sharing all your info about your beautiful home! You have done an amazing job! It is so beautiful! I was wondering if you see a lot of yellow in your floors? Some pictures show differently. And are you still loving them? Thank you!

  10. Emily Young says:

    What did you use on your steps? They look so good with the LVP floors. Thanks!

    • Hi Emily,
      Our stairs are the same LVP flooring as the rest of our home! The brand offered a really nice seamless nosing so we went for it. I didn’t want to have to color match. We’ve been super happy with our choice & would 100% do it again!

  11. Sarah Beardmore says:

    We are considering using LVP for the same reasons that you shared in your blog. I am wondering if you notice that your dogs slip on the flooring I as well as do their nails click loudly when they are walking on it?

    Thank you ,

    • Hi Sarah! Our LVP does have some texture to it so the dogs don’t slip. We can hear their nails on it if we don’t keep them trimmed. It sounds the same as it would on any other hard floor. Hope this helps!

    Hi Sarah,
    Beautiful job. I have been looking at a few different Paradym Conquest colors recently and love the look of the photos here. DId you by any chance look at the “Estate” color? My concern is that the Citadel sample I got was quite dark – yet your floors look quite neutral. Wondering how edited these photos are (no judgement haha). Great work again.

    • I did look at Estate and Tower as well. Estate was a little too warm for our space & Tower was too cool. Photos are edited as close to actual as possible, I don’t change the color at all, just brighten it up a bit so it looks closer to how it does in real life. We ordered our floors through ProSource and our local show room had big samples, like 3×4′ so I could get a better feel for the wood tone & account for the color variation between planks. If your local showroom doesn’t offer this, I would maybe consider buying one carton of each.

  13. Marilyn Wesley says:

    My lvp look’s cloudy when the sunlight hits it or any light really. Do you have that problem? It makes it look dirty. I’ve used an all purpose cleaner natural ingredients and just plain soap and water. Also a vinegar cleaner with all natural ingredients. I don’t know what else to do. So far I don’t like my floor for that reason. ๐Ÿ˜”

    • Do you know what sheen your LVP is? I’d say mine is most similar to the finish of eggshell paint, if that makes sense. Floors that are more matte are on trend right now, so maybe that’s why yours seems to be more cloudy looking. Hopefully that’s helpful!

  14. Crystal says:

    One more year has passed and I’m wondering if you still love your floor? I was about ready to install Paradigm LVP and I’m finding some pretty scary reviews of the product. My installer hasn’t been installing it for very long so he has questions out to the sales rep

  15. Paige says:

    Hey! I love this look and is exactly what I am looking for. I am curious if anyone has found another brand of lvp that is very similar to this color ? Having a hard time contacting Paradigm and no one around me sells this brand. Thanks! Absolutely beautiful!

  16. JC says:

    Your “citadel” color looks a lot lighter than it actually is. Are u sure u didn’t choose the color: estate? bc urs is remarkably lighter, much lighter. I’m holding a huge sample board (citadel) and the wood tone and shade it very different. Go to the paradigm conquest site and double check.

    • Hi JC! Thanks for reaching out! I’m sure we have Citadel. ๐Ÿ™‚ There is a fair bit of variation in it, and our home also gets a TON of natural light, which lightens it up quite a bit. If you can, try to get a larger sample. The one we got was pretty big, I want to say 3’x4′, so it was several planks wide. We got our sample & ordered through ProSource.

  17. Ariana evans says:

    Hi! How did you purchase it? The website doesnโ€™t have any way to order. Do certain stores carry this color and type?

    • Hi Ariana, we ordered locally through ProSource. I would check with your local flooring supplier and see if they can get it. I haven’t been able to track down any contact information from Paradigm unfortunately.
