What’s the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?

The only difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile is the format. Both are excellent choices for vinyl flooring. LVP or luxury vinyl plank is in planks and conforms well to the subflooring. It mimics hardwood. LVT or luxury vinyl tile is in the form of squares. Grout can be added to the tiling to enhance the visuals.

Alternatives to genuine wood, stone, or tile

LVP and LVT are very versatile in the home. LVP is ideal for bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens to give you a wood look, and you can turn your basement into something special with cherry wood-look LVP or oak-look floors. LVT can provide a spa-like environment in your bathroom with marble-look tile because you have so many options with LVP and LVT.

Luxury vinyl flooring- an excellent value for your dollar

LVF, as it is known, is a 100% waterproof material. It is exceptionally durable. It has low maintenance and is relatively easy to install. Activity from kids and pets do not wear it down. It is considered one of the most friendly-pet and kid products.


LVP and LVT are not the original vinyl that went on your grandmother's floors. They are five times thicker than the original and composed of multiple layers. First, it has a backing layer that goes on the subfloor. It is waterproof and prevents mold and mildew from growing. Next, the core layer is a PVC material that is vinyl, flexible, and waterproof. Next, the design layer, or the imaging layer, is where the 3D photography is. It has depth, so you can't see gouges in the flooring. Finally, the top layer is a melamine layer, a tough layer that prevents scratches and scuffs.
