The only difference you have between the two is the form. Both are options of luxury vinyl. Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) is cut into strips and mounted on boards. This mimics hardwood planks. When the vinyl is cut into groutable squares, it’s tile or LVT.
Alternatives to genuine wood, stone, and tile
Do you want wood floors in your bathroom or kitchen? How about the laundry room or basement? LVP can do for you. What about turning your bath into a high-end-looking spa with a marble or granite look? LVT can do that for you. Another option for LVT is to turn your child's room into a retro style with color that pops. Luxury vinyl can do all of that for you.
Luxury vinyl flooring- worth the dollar for decorating
LVF is 100% waterproof and highly durable. It is low maintenance and easy to install. Today's luxury vinyl is five times thicker than the original vinyl aid and comprises multiple layers. This includes a waterproof backing that prevents mold and mildew. The core is composed of flexible PVC vinyl, also waterproof.
Three-dimensional photography goes on the imaging layer with images of wood, stone, or tile. It is micro-beveled and embossed for depth and dimension. At the top layer is a melamine layer that is resistant to scratches and scuffs.
These floors can withstand the heaviest wear and tear from kids and pets. As a product, it is considered the most friendly kid-and-pet product on the market. Though it's a hard surface, it has enough resilience to provide good traction for running kids and pets to stop quickly.
