Choosing flooring for your home is a big commitment and investment.Luxury vinyl is an excellent choice that offers an ideal blend of style and functionality, and these products have never looked more real and authentic than they do now. There are two different formats available, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). LVT tends to look like a stone or ceramic type of tile, and LVP takes on the appearance of a hardwood floor.
Both LVT and LVP offer a wonderful set of benefits including beautiful aesthetics, tons of styles and designs, durability, scratch and water resistance, great value for the price, and this is just the beginning of what they can deliver to homeowners.
The entry-level luxury vinyl products start at around 2 millimetres thick, and can increase up to 6 millimeters. The important thing to remember about this material's thickness is that the thicker it is, the more durable and agile it becomes.
There are two installation methods that can be used, the first one is glue down and the other is ‘click together” or called a “floating floor.”
In terms of finishes, there are a few that are available, especially for the planks. A smooth finish is what many people are familiar with, but there are texture effects that can be done too, such as ribbed, hand scraped, or embossing. If you want a more natural look, then a textured effect can go a long way to accomplish that visual goal.
