Luxury vinyl flooring: Do planks and tiles offer the same visuals?

Luxury vinyl flooring: Do planks and tiles offer the same visuals?

No. These two luxury vinyl flooring forms have two very different looks.

Vinyl plank flooring (LVP) refers to the material being cut into strips and mounted on boards to mimic hardwood floorboards. The luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is cut into square, tile-sized pieces to echo stone and tile.

You're not limited to how to use a form; some people use LVP flooring for a stone slab, while others might use LVT flooring for a wood look, specifically wood-look tiles.

All the character of genuine wood

Knots, swirls, grains, and textures should be displayed clearly, such as Vinyl Deluxe Classic by DuChateau. Textures are done by hand on genuine wood.??

However, it is embossed on your LVP flooring in Lakewood Ranch, FL. This results in looks such as:?

  1. Wire-brushed: This look is slightly distressed. With genuine, the outer wood is scraped, with heartwood being exposed.
  2. Hand Scraped: These floors have color variations between planks. The result is a unique, expensive look.
  3. Distressed: This is an aged look with holes, burn marks, scratches, etc.
  4. Embossed-in-register (EIR): Embossing creates little indentations to match the image's grain exactly. It's an authentic, vibrant look.

Stone: All the ?imperfections? of a Mother Nature Design

If you choose a stone look, such as Stonewalk by Doma, there should be plenty of color/veining variations. Luxury vinyl flooring also offers exciting tile patterns, such as Daltile?s Proseries-Bellant.
