When most consumers think about vinyl flooring, they envision the peel and stick sheets that could be found in our grandmother’s kitchen. Vinyl flooring has come a long way in recent years and it’s now hard to distinguish a Luxury Vinyl Plank floor from real hardwood.
There are 3 main types of vinyl flooring:
Luxury Vinyl Plank(LVP)
This vinyl is designed to give your floors the appearance of hardwood floors without the cost. Luxury vinyl plank also provides more stain resistance and durability than traditional hardwood planks. Like real hardwood, LVP can now be arranged in various patterns such as a herringbone pattern.
Luxury Vinyl Tile(LVT)
This vinyl consists of individual squares of various size, that when assembled gives the appearance of stone tile. LVT can even be grouted to look like real tile. One of the benefits of having individual tiles is that they are easier to replace if one tile is damaged. LVT can also be arranged in various patterns such as a brick or herringbone.
Sheet vinyl flooring is a single roll of flooring usually 12 feet wide. A vinyl sheet limits the number of seams and is great for high-moisture areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. Sheet vinyl is a more economical choice over LVP and LVT.
