LVP is usually associated with hardwood, but some use it to mimic stone looks. Many feel the large format with fewer seams gives in the more continuous surface of a quarried slab. Others prefer it cut into square tile-sized pieces because the extra seams give it more realism. Some take it even further and use grout, which now comes in a broad color palette and is an important design tool.
True LVP must be at least 8-mm or 9-mm thick but, for planks, you may want to go as high as 10-mm or 12-mm. You also want that clear image with textured appearances. While it’s always tempting to save money, ultra inexpensive, bargain-basement prices often cut corners so that the vinyl may be too thin or the photography subpar.
This is an installation technique that is often used with LVP. The pieces click together and hover over subfloors with no nails or adhesives needed. Subfloors need only be clean, dry, and level, but installers will sometimes have to sand and level them out, so imperfections don't show on the surface floor.
