What’s the difference between LVP and LVT?
Both are versions of Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVF). The flooring can be cut into long planks, called vinyl plank flooring (LVP), or square, groutable pieces, called LVT Flooring (LVT). Both are affordable, realistic, and stylish alternatives to wood, stone, or tile with individual pieces of vinyl that lock or glue together. LVF is one of the hottest trends in flooring today, delivering aesthetics, functionality, affordability, easy maintenance, and uncomplicated installation.
With patterns inspired
by nature and images taken with digital photography, you will see
knots, raised grains, swirls, wormholes, and variations. The colors
and patterns are vibrant. Since LVF follows all current industry
trends, you will get any look, from the trending gray floors to
whitewashed, reclaimed marble, granite, slate, colorful geometric
patterns, herringbones, chevrons, and more.
Micro beveling and deep
embossing add depth, dimension, and textured features such as
wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. The material
is available in matte, gloss, and high gloss colors. Just think of a
wood look, a high gloss floor, and it will look like it came out of
the design pages.
LVF: completely waterproof
When a product is
waterproof, it means that it was constructed of 100% waterproof
materials. In this case, it is vinyl, with a core that’s made up
of vinyl composites. As a result, it can be spilled on or submerged;
wipe it up, and it will be fine.
is also durable. At the top is a clear, tough melamine coating that
protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. While all vinyl is
tough, LVF should be at least 8-mm thick, but higher will give you
quality and that authentic hard surface feeling underfoot. Wear
layers should be at least 20-mil thick.
