LVT and LVP are relatively new products in the flooring industry. For a while, commercials designers were the only ones who took advantage of these products, but the advances have been so great that it’s not flying under the radar anymore and has found itself in high demand with retail consumers. What sets it apart is the way it’s manufactured and the overall aesthetics–it’s able to precisely replicate the look and feel of wood, tile and stone–while being a product that is much more versatile than standard vinyls.Benefits of LVT and LVP include: Design Choices:
