Planning a renovation project but don’t know if you need luxury vinyl tile (LVT) or luxury vinyl planks (LVP)? With the following information from our Christian Flooring experts, you’ll be able to get a good idea of which type of floors would best suit your space. While both are excellent materials, you may simply prefer one over the other because of shape and style.

LVP floors

At a fraction of the cost of genuine materials, you can enjoy lookalike luxury vinyl planks in various colors, species, and textures. Aside from its impressive affordability, you'll certainly appreciate the list of advantages LVP has to offer. Scratch-resistant and waterproof, these durable floors are also super simple to clean. Capable of withstanding active households, LVP provides design flexibility while also ensuring a long-lasting installation. Clean it quickly with daily sweeping, using a damp microfiber mop to effectively remove dirt.

LVT flooring

Although very similar to luxury vinyl planks, LVT is essentially the tile version of this high-tech material. Available in a wide array of realistic ceramic and stone lookalike options, it’s another way to get that look you always wanted but at a more cost-effective price. While some styles are created to use grout for the floors, others don’t. As with LVP, cleaning is stress-free. Another benefit is the ease of installation, where you can get the tile look without the extensive installation process.

Which one should I choose?

When it all comes down to it, LVP and LVT are indeed constructed in the same manner. Therefore, the choice between both floors does come down to the look you're going for. Tiles offer you a way to get the ceramic or stone appearance, complete with textured surfaces and colors that are truly realistic. Planks, on the other hand, are ideal for homeowners that want the solid hardwood style. You can even choose the species and color you like most, with extra touches like embossing or scraping to increase the aspect of realism drastically.
