Luxury vinyl flooring is thicker than sheet vinyl, and it comes in planks and tiles rather than sheets. Often, the flooring is connected with a click and lock system. So while some brands are glued to the subfloor, many more fit together to float above the subfloor. This type of thick floor covering can utilize the deep embossing that is made possible with advanced printing technology. Therefore, luxury vinyl more closely imitates natural materials than sheet vinyl.
What's more, planks and tiles have a different composition than sheet vinyl. Four layers are fused to create the flooring. The backing and core provide structure and stability while the wear layer protects the design layer. The most durable products have the thickest wear layers. Look for 20-mil or higher, especially if you have an active household.
