What’s the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?
The only actual difference between the two luxury vinyl products is the form. Both are considered options for luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) comes in long strips with varying widths. The luxury vinyl tile (LVT) comes in squares that can be grouted to enhance its appearance.

Alternatives to natural materials

LVP can give you a wood-look in various places in the home, including the bathroom, laundry room, and kitchen. For example, you can turn your bathroom into a spa-like appearance with LVT or marble-look, or granite-look tile. Do you want to change your basement into a man-cave with cherry or oak-look flooring? What about a child's playroom with a retro-style tile? LVP and LVT can deliver in these rooms.

Luxury vinyl flooring- a great value

Luxury vinyl flooring, also known as LVF, is a highly durable flooring that is 100% waterproof. It has easy installation and a low maintenance level. It is considered one of the most pet and child-friendly products on the market, withstand the heaviest wear and tear from them. In addition, it has good traction, being a hard product, so kids and pets can stop quickly.


LVP and LVT are five times thicker than the original vinyl product when it first came on the scene. LVF is comprised of multiple layers. First, it has a waterproof backing layer that prevents mold and mildew. Next, the core layer is formed of PVC vinyl that is flexible and waterproof. The 3-D layer is where the imaging comes into play, giving you a look you desire. Next, it is micro-beveled and embossed for a textured feature. Finally, the top layer is a layer of melamine, a clear, strong guard against scratches and scuffs.
