Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP) are essentially the same material, but they have different formats. They come in two different shapes and different images on them. LVT is in a tile shape, while LVP is in a plank shape, like wood. LVT resembles a standard tile, while LVP resembles standard wood planks.

What is luxury vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl flooring is not the vinyl flooring that your grandmother put down in her kitchen. LVF is a technologically advanced surface that is high quality and equal to other flooring options. Decades ago, vinyl was a low-cost, low-grade surface material. Things have changed. Today's luxury vinyl can mimic any surface taken with a camera. It can mimic shapes, colors, textures, and designs of high-priced flooring. It is available in numerous designs and patterns that you can put into your home and have a luxurious, high-end appearance on your floors for a more budget-friendly cost. Stone, wood, and tile are all looks available in luxury vinyl. Many tiles and planks come with realistic detail in their images, such as veining, grain, knots, and whorls.

Are they waterproof?

Yes. One massive benefit you get from luxury vinyl floors is that they are entirely waterproof. So, LVP and LVT are excellent choices for a bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room where there may be a water accident. Likewise, LVF is a superb choice for that basement if you have a basement.
