Luxury vinyl tile flooring or sheet vinyl?

Vinyl flooring is one of the hottest trends on the market today! So, for you, it was a no-brainer to install it in your home.?

The question now is: luxury vinyl flooring or sheet vinyl? Both are great choices, but a few differences may influence your decision.

About sheet vinyl

Sheet vinyl is the original product, available in 12 or 13-foot wide rolls. It comprises layers including a fiberglass backing, a design sheet, and a top clear wear layer that protect the floor.?

Vinyl flooring ranges in thickness from 2 mm to 5 mm and comes with a water-resistant high-density fiberboard core. Over the years, design has evolved to include vibrant images of wood, stone, and tile.

Luxury vinyl flooring: a more advanced version

Rather than sheets, this is cut into square, tile-sized pieces called luxury vinyl tile (or LVT); they?re used mainly to mimic stone or ceramic tile looks.?

Alternatively, it can be cut into long strips to echo hardwood floorboards, which is called luxury vinyl plank (or LVP). Many tell us the extra seams add even more to the realism.?

It is embossed to add textured looks. Micro beveling adds depth and dimension.??
