LVT /LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank / Luxuries Vinyl Tile) vs. Hardwood Flooring

If you’ve seen luxury vinyl flooring, you know it can look nearly identical to hardwood, engineered hardwood, and laminate flooring. What you may not know is why some homeowners choose LVT/LVP flooring and others choose hardwood.

So what exactly is LVT/LVP?

It’s certainly not the vinyl sheet that was mainly used in the kitchen flooring that many of us remember from our childhood. That was typically sheet vinyl, which exists today (albeit in much more beautiful patterns and colors than in decades past), and it’s an entirely different product.
Luxury vinyl typically comes in plank and tile. For comparison’s sake, we’re going to focus on luxury vinyl plank flooring, which looks similar to hardwood flooring.
