What is luxury vinyl?

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is a vinyl product designed to mimic the look and texture of stone or ceramic tile. Featuring gorgeous natural colors and textures, these tiles look and feel like the "real thing" while offering additional qualities not found in the original. And some designs by Shaw Floors are even made to be installed using real grout. Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) is a similar vinyl product but in plank form. The difference is the plank allows the luxury vinyl to mimic hardwood or ceramic planks. They come in a variety of styles that vary from hand-scraped wood to long tile sections complete with the embossing and texture of each. The size and form allow them to be installed uniformly, staggered, or even diagonally for a fully customized look of a home or office.
