What’s the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?
Luxury vinyl is a good flooring choice for homeowners looking for an attractive alternative to wood and tile flooring. This worry-free floor covering is waterproof, and it's easy to clean. All luxury vinyl floors are child-friendly. A pet-proof warranty backs some brands, and other brands are guaranteed to be eco-friendly. In Kamloops and Kelowna, British Columbia, Bridgeport Floors offers various luxury vinyl planks and tiles.
Luxury vinyl plank mimics domestic and exotic wood species. Colors and wood grain patterns are numerous. The best LVP has a textured surface that looks and feels like wood. Most often, luxury vinyl tile imitates stone and ceramic flooring. You can find LVT that looks like stones such as slate, soapstone, marble, granite, and travertine. Wood-look LVT is also available. All luxury vinyl flooring comprises several layers, including the transparent wear layer; this surface layer protects the high-tech image of wood or tile from staining and scratching.
Floating floor vs. glue-down
Usually, LVP clicks and locks together at the edges so a floating floor can be constructed. Since no attachment to the subfloor is needed, the planks can easily be placed on top of cement or an existing floor. Underlayment enhances the performance of this type of luxury vinyl flooring. LVT is more likely to come in glue-down designs, although floating floor brands are available. Loose lay luxury vinyl is a third option. Planks or tiles butt together to create a semi-permanent floor that can be changed or removed with little effort. The flooring uses friction to stay in place.
