What’s the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?

If you're new to the luxury vinyl tile and plank material lines, you may wonder what the difference between the two is and if it matters to you. While these products are very similar, the differences there may be enough for you to choose one over the other, so be sure to compare and contrast for the best results.

Luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring is almost the same

Luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring options are remarkably similar in appearance and benefits, but the determining factor between the two is often the format. If you prefer tile over planks or vice versa, then one will provide a better experience than the other.

Both materials offer stunning replications of natural porcelain tile, all-natural stone, and solid hardwood flooring when it comes to appearance. In addition, you'll find many of the same color schemes, textures, and formats you might find in the real thing for an authentic experience with each product.

They are both incredibly durable and protecting from daily wear, thanks to a top wear layer. Choosing the perfect core material can also provide complete waterproof protection, so be sure to consider that option if you have pets or children.
