Luxury vinyl plank vs. luxury vinyl tile: the difference?


The only difference between luxury vinyl plank flooring or tile is style. Both of these are forms of luxury vinyl (LVF). With LVF, the vinyl is cut into long strips and mounted on boards to mimic hardwood or into groutable squares to echo ceramic tile or stone, called LVT flooring.

Great Value for your decorating dollar!

When you explore luxury vinyl flooring in St. Louis, MO., you will find that this product offers high worth, including:

  1. High-endstyle with images inspired by nature. Photographs of wood, stone,and tile are taken with 3D photography, so they’re clear and vibrantwith features such as micro beveling and embossing to add depth,dimension, and textured looks. So whether you want to add a highgloss finish to your wood-look floor or create a high-end spaatmosphere in your bath with marble-look floors, you’re only limitedby your imagination. The squares can be mixed and matched to createyour distinctive tile design.
  2. Affordability.Even some flooring experts have trouble discerning that from genuinematerials, but you’ll know; you won’t pay nearly the same price asyou would for natural wood or stone!
  3. Completewaterproof. When something is waterproof, it’s made up of waterproofmaterials, in this case, vinyl. LVF can be submerged or spilled onand still be okay. Water-resistant means it will repel for a shortwhile but, unless wiped immediately, will soak through.

A kid-and-pet-friendly product

This is a multi-layered product and five times thicker than original vinyl, with a top clear, strong melamine coating that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs.

Any LVF is low maintenance, needing only regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Installation is also easy, especially when a floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, then hover over a clean, dry, and level subfloor without nails or glue.
