What’s the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?
Luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank flooring is a less-costly, man-made alternative to hardwood, stone, and ceramic flooring. LVT and LVP resist scratches, stains, dents, and wear. Best of all, the durable flooring is waterproof. Braid Flooring & Window Fashions offers vinyl plank flooring in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We also provide a variety of vinyl tile in many styles, sizes, and colors. We carry brands from top companies like Armstrong and Mohawk.
Luxury vinyl flooring
While LVT mimics stone, ceramic, and hardwood flooring, LVP brands usually imitate only hardwood planks. Luxury vinyl plank floors are quite similar to hardwood floors in looks and feel. Textures range from smooth to distressed. Wood species are many, and each plank's digitally printed image shows off each species' distinctive grain. LVT hardwood flooring is also trendy at this time. More traditional LVT stone flooring mimics marble, slate, granite, and more.
Usually, LVP is installed as a floating floor. The planks' edges are designed to click and lock together, so no attachment to the subfloor is necessary. Therefore, this waterproof flooring can easily be installed in all areas of the home. While some LVT brands connect in this same manner, others are designed to be glued to the subfloor or existing floor. Also, some brands can be grouted to make the synthetic flooring look even more authentic.
