Types of Vinyl Floors
Vinyl is one of the most popular flooring choices available today. Beloved for its versatility, vinyl flooring is known for its warmth and comfort underfoot in addition to being a durable and waterproof choice. Here’s an overview of each type so you can determine what’s right for you.

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

While LVT technically refers to luxury vinyl products that look like stone or ceramic tile, the acronym is often used to describe both tile and plank products. The most popular type of LVT today is rigid core LVT which is most similar to natural tile and stone. Shaw Floors LVT styles come in gorgeous natural colors and surface textures that look and feel like the real tile and stone.

Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)

LVP is luxury vinyl flooring that looks like wood planks in everything from color to species. Like LVT, rigid core LVP is the most popular option as it most closely resembles hardwood planks. Shaw Floors uses cutting-edge technology to make our LVP products as realistic as possible with true-to-life visuals and surface texture for a more realistic look and feel.

Sheet Vinyl

Shaw Floors sheet vinyl is fiberglass cushion-backed sheet flooring that is glued directly to the subfloor. With strikingly sophisticated designs including grouted tile, wood plank and stone visuals, sheet vinyl is a smart and stunning choice for any space.
