What are Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT)?

Luxury Vinyl Tiles or LVT is not technically a distinct item but rather it’s an industry term for vinyl that realistically mimics the appearance of natural materials with an added layer of protection to improve wear and performance.

 

This layer of protection is usually a heavy film covered with a UV-cured urethane that makes it stain and scratch-resistant. Sometimes the term “luxury vinyl tile” is used for products that mimic stone and ceramic, whereas “luxury vinyl plank” is used for products that mimic wood.
