Three basic facts about luxury vinyl flooring in tile format

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT flooring) is cut into square, tile-sized pieces. It's one form of luxury vinyl flooring. The other is when the material is cut into planks (LVP flooring).

Here are three basic facts about luxury vinyl flooring in tile format.

Images are clear, vibrant, and accurate

Whether you choose LVT or LVP flooring, you’ll see color variations, veining patterns, knots, grains, swirls–all the “imperfections” of a Mother Nature design.

All luxury vinyl floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks. LVT flooring is mainly used to echo stone and ceramic tile, such as Stonecast-Monumental by Next Floor.

Completely waterproof

This material is made of waterproof materials, such as vinyl, so the capability is inherent. You can spill on or submerge your luxury vinyl tile or vinyl plank flooring without damage.

Waterproof and water-resistant aren't the same, although the two terms are often used interchangeably.

Waterproof means impervious. Water-resistant means the product will repel water for a short time. However, it will eventually soak, stain, peel, and ripple.

Luxury vinyl flooring is durable

Luxury vinyl flooring is kid-and-pet friendly. It's five times thicker than the original product–and layered.

Just over the design sheet is a transparent, strong wear layer. It protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. 

At the very top is a clear urethane finish. It adds extra strength and shine.  

Other benefits of LVT and LVP flooring

  1. Low maintenance. All your LVT or LVP flooring in Cincinnati, OH, needs is regular sweeping and periodic mopping. 
  2. Uncomplicated installation. Luxury vinyl flooring can be glued down or installed as a floating floor or loose lay.
