Luxury Vinyl Plank/Tile Flooring

Important Things to Know About LVT and LVP Flooring

Have you always wanted a hardwood floor but aren’t sure how to fit taking care of one into your busy schedule? Then you’re going to fall in love immediately with luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile flooring. An LVP and LVT floor is elegant but also easy to maintain. With LVP and LVT, you can create a stunning look for any room without going over budget.

Luxury vinyl tile is also known as LVT. It doesn’t include any natural materials. Instead, it’s designed to look just like a hardwood floor and have the same texture as one. There are also stone options available. If you want a more realistic looking floor, LVP, or vinyl plank flooring is made completely from high-quality vinyl, looks like real wood, and comes in plank dimensions.

LVT has several different layers. The bottom layer of solid backing provides stability and durability. Clear layers give the floor amazing wear resistance. The top-coat layer adds just the right level of shine.

The thicker the wear layer, the more comfortable and durable the floor is.  A good LVT floor for the home has layers 6–12 mm thick. For most commercial flooring in Colorado Springs, CO, we recommend 12–20 mm.

Customized LVT Flooring

The great thing about LVT flooring is that you can customize all of these factors. You decide how much cushioning feels good on your feet, how much wear and tear your floors are likely to face, how shiny your floor should be, and how much money you’re comfortable spending.
