Are luxury vinyl planks waterproof?

Is LVP the same as luxury vinyl flooring (LVF)?

Yes, the name refers to the cut, not the composition.

LVF is a remarkably realistic mimic of wood, tile, or stone. Images are taken with 3D photography and are so clear you see every knot, grain, wormhole, and veining.  Colors are vibrant and seem to pop out.  It is available in an almost unlimited number of colors, patterns, designs, and species.

The vinyl can be cut into a plank or groutable square tile-sized pieces. Many people feel that the added seams give it an even stronger resemblance.  Some people find it difficult to discern one appearance from the other, but you will certainly see the difference in the price tag.

To add even more to the feeling of luxury, all LVP has embossing features available to give the floor added depth, dimension, and textured appearances, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, or distressed.

It comes in matte, gloss, or high gloss finishes.

Are planks only used to mimic hardwood?

Not at all. Many use them to mimic stone because they feel the larger format and fewer seams give in a more continuous look of a quarried stone.

This seems to work particularly well with marble because marble baths are also currently trending.

All vinyl is durable but, when it's luxury, it's thicker with a strong clear melamine wear layer at the top that protects against scuffs and scratches.  The wear layer also makes it impossible to "walk-off" the image.

Spills sit at the top so they wipe off easily.  All the floor needs is a regular sweeping and a periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner.

Installation is fast and easy with click-and-lock floating floor installation.
