Can vinyl plank flooring be installed on stairs?

Yes, this is a terrific option for stairs because luxury vinyl plank (LVP), a form of luxury vinyl flooring,  is stylish, affordable, ultra-durable, and low maintenance, making it ideal for floors and walls in any space. The other form is luxury vinyl tile (LVT), where pieces are cut into tile-sized squares that can be used with or without grout.

Wood and wood looks are all the rage
That’s a trend that’s expected to last 15 years and, with LVP, you’ll certainly pay a lot less than you would for genuine materials.  LVP is made by cutting the vinyl into strips and then mounting it on boards to mimic hardwood or even stone slabs.

You can get hundreds of species, including oak, maple, hickory, or exotics like Brazilian cherry, etc., from which to choose. In addition, LVP (or LVT) is available in countless matte, gloss, and high gloss colors. 

Durable enough to withstand pets and kids
Every space has different priorities and, for stairs, the priorities are durability, safety, and easy cleanability. Luxury vinyl (LVF) answers all these needs. It is robust and withstands people and pets running up and down stairs all day; multi-layered and five times thicker than the original product.

Luxury vinyl also comes with a top, transparent wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs and keeps spills from absorbing. On top of that is a urethane finish that adds even more toughness and extra shine.

LVF has good traction, so people won't slip, and pet nails won't snag. It's semi-rigid, so it feels firm underfoot but also comfortable and warm. So easy to clean, it only requires regular sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Avoid wax, shine-promoting cleaners as they can damage the finish and dull the floor, not to mention it can make it more slippery!
