Luxury vinyl tile refers to luxury vinyl being cut into square, tile-sized pieces. It is often used for stone echoes or ceramic tile mimics.
The other form is a plank, used for hardwood echoes. You aren't limited as to how to use a form, however.
Some people also use planks for stone or ceramic tile. Again, this is because of the large format and fewer seams. Others might use the squares for a wood-look tile mimic.
All images are taken with high-definition photography. As a result, they're clear, vibrant, and show veining and color variations, textures, and Mother Nature's "imperfections."
If the luxury vinyl plank is your choice, you'll have knots, swirls, grains, and growth rings.
There is micro beveling and embossing for depth, dimension, and textured looks. Finishes are available in matte, gloss, and high gloss colors.
Whichever form you select, you can be assured of a true-to-life floor. Sometimes even the flooring experts can't tell it from genuine materials, but you will only pay a fraction of the cost.
What about textures?
Wire-brushed, hand-scraped, and distressed are, for LVP, somewhat rustic looks. Embossed-in-Register refers to little indentations that exactly match those of the image.
1. 100% waterproof, whether submerged or spilled on.
2. Durability. A top transparent, strong wear layer guards the floor against scratches, scuffs, and dents. This stands up to wear from kids, pets, and heavy foot traffic.
3. Low maintenance, whether LVT or plank, with only regular sweeping and periodic mopping.
4. Uncomplicated installation. It can be glued or installed via the floating floor.
