Do vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring look the same?

Do vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring look the same?

Vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring do not look the same. Although they have the same construction and functional capabilities, these two forms of luxury vinyl flooring have different looks–with varying design purposes.

What are LVP and LVT?

Luxury vinyl flooring has an added design option: the material can be cut into planks or tile-sized, groutable squares. Many tell us that this adds even more realism.

The planks are used mainly to mimic hardwood floorboards, such as Prime Plank by Shaw Industries. The squares are primarily used for stone and tile looks, such as Hi Traffic Tiles-Lasting Stone by Fusion.

You’re not limited, though, as to how to use a form. Many use LVP, also called vinyl plank flooring, for stone slab or large format tile looks. Others use squares with wood to mimic the trend toward wood-look tiles.

Stylish enough for any room!

It's waterproof and the obvious choice for kitchens and baths. But the style makes it just as suitable for living rooms or bedrooms.

This affordable product offers images of wood, stone, and tile. They're vibrant, accurate, and true to life.

The floors have depth and dimension. Textured looks include wire-brushed, hand-scraped, distressed, and embossed-in-register.

Durability to stand up to kids, pets, and heavy foot traffic

Your LVT and LVP flooring in Central Falls, RI, is layered. There is a robust and transparent wear sheet. That protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents.

Waterproof capabilities

I don't know about you–but when I'm in a hurry, I'm especially prone to dropping and spilling. And these days, everyone leads a hectic life and multi-tasks. Fortunately, luxury vinyl flooring can be spilled on or submerged without damage.

Easy maintenance and installation

All your LVP and LVT flooring needs is regular sweeping and periodic mopping. After that, installation can be either glue-down or floating.
