Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP): what are they? If youre on the lookout for flooring, youve probably heard their names and the associated buzz. In fact, LVT and LVP are both types of Vinyl Plank, a term that the public uses to encompass a new wave of vinyl floor coverings.

The industry calls it Luxury Vinyl, which is more accurate, but because the former is more popular, I will use Vinyl Plank in telling you why it is such an excellent product.


In the past, vinyl used to be synonymous with Linoleum and VCT (Vinyl Composite Tile). Contemporary Vinyl Plank, however, is Vinyl reinvented: it has exceptionally detailed patterns and textures, it has impressive resilience and it is completely impermeable. Given its exceptional look and performance, it is not surprising that Vinyl Plank has become extremely popular in the short time since its release.

Vinyl Plank is a very durable product, resisting the wear of foot traffic for decades. Two attributes make this possible. First, it is very hard, in some cases harder than hardwood and its finish is very resilient. But most importantly, as a synthetic product with no pores or seams, it is completely impermeable—100% waterproof. This makes it impervious to moisture and thus very resistant to drastic fluctuations in climate and humidity.

Vinyl Plank comes in two formats: floating and glue-down. As a floating floor, it is a great option if you want to install it over a concrete subfloor, like in a condo or a basement. As a glue-down, it will stand up very well to heavy foot traffic. If youre using LVT, the glue-down format allows you to grout it, creating a very realistic emulation of ceramic or stone tile.

As a completely waterproof product, Vinyl Plank is an excellent option for areas more likely to see moisture damage: kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms. If you spill something, if a minor leak arises, you just wipe up the liquid, dry the floor and theres no need to worry.

Its difficult to really get a sense of how extraordinary Vinyl Plank is without seeing it in person. Come to our showroom and take a look and feel for yourself.
