Luxury vinyl flooring: Comparing sheet, tile, and plank products

Luxury vinyl flooring: Comparing sheet, tile, and plank products

You can depend on vinyl flooring to adapt to your needs because it is available in plank, tile, and sheet format and because of many design options. First American Carpet & Floors showrooms in Woodbridge and Stafford, VA, offer a great selection of the trendiest luxury vinyl flooring styles. Compare formats by considering features, installation methods, and aesthetics.


Luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile flooring are thicker than budget-friendly sheet vinyl, and the best brands can be expected to last longer. The durability of LVT and LVP flooring is determined by the thickness of the transparent wear layer that covers the wood or tile image layer. In addition, some vinyl flooring brands are waterproof, while others are water-resistant.

Installation methods

Sheet vinyl is glued down or affixed only around the room's perimeter. So, with no or few seams, water and liquid spills pool on the floor's surface for easy cleanup rather than seeping under the floor. Some LVT and LVP flooring is glued to the subfloor, but more popular floating floor brands click and lock together and, thus, need no attachment to the surface below.


Arguably, you can use your creativity to the fullest by choosing LVT flooring, which allows you to use two or more tile styles that vary in color, size, and shape. With LVP flooring, you can create an eye-catching look by opting for a floor layout pattern like herringbone or basket weave. Both types of luxury vinyl flooring can have either a smooth or a lightly or heavily textured surface.
