If you’ve seen luxury vinyl tile or plank, then you know they can look remarkably similar and have a construction that is very much alike as well. However, there are a few differences between the two you might want to know about, so follow along with today's post to find more information.
Luxury vinyl plank and tile are nearly the same
Luxury vinyl tile (known as LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP) share many similarities. Their durability is nearly unrivaled in their class, with outstanding stability and performance from their layered construction and ease of installation.
A top wear layer takes that durability to the next level with protection from all kinds of daily wear. This is especially useful if you have pets, children, or frequent visitors in your home.
A core layer allows you to choose complete waterproof options in both, a perfect choice for basements, laundry rooms, and kitchens. This protection ensures your floors will never crack, split, or peel.
The most significant difference between the two is the format, with one offering the plank style and the other offering tile. Also, choosing LVT gives you the option to add actual grout lines for incredible authenticity when replicating the look of natural porcelain and ceramic tile.
