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


Luxury vinyl plank and tile are very similar, as they are both a part of the luxury vinyl flooring line. But some differences might make one better for you than the other.

We will look at some of the differences between the two that might be important to you. Follow along to find out what they are.

Luxury vinyl tile or plank?

Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) offers the plank format, with materials that look just like stone and solid hardwood, while vinyl tile (LVT) brings you the tile format appearances of wood, stone, and tile flooring. As you might expect, the tile format gives you the option to add grouting to your project for even more authenticity.

Both plank and tile have a functional construction that provides layers of stability. A top wear layer offers excellent durability with scratch and stain resistance that keeps your floors looking new for years.

The core layer can give you utterly waterproof flooring, making these products perfect for basements, laundry rooms, or anywhere this kind of protection might be appreciated. It’s especially popular with parents and pet owners, so be sure to ask how it might serve you and your household as well.
