Luxury Vinyl Flooring

What’s the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?

Luxury vinyl flooring looks great and performs even better! The pet- and child-friendly floor covering is appropriate for every type of household. What’s more, it can be installed everywhere in the home, from the basement to the attic. You can find a large selection of luxury vinyl flooring
at Carpet Concepts in Baltimore, Maryland. We carry high-quality brands that are manufactured by top companies like Mohawk, Mannington, and Armstrong.


Luxury vinyl plank looks like wood flooring. Luxury vinyl tile usually looks like stone and ceramic flooring, but brands that look like wood are available, too. Both LVP and LVT are composed of four layers of materials. The transparent wear layer protects the high-tech image layer. For maximum durability, be sure to choose a product that has a 20+ mil surface layer. The backing layer cushions the core layer. Any product that has a stone plastic composite or a wood-plastic composite core is waterproof. SPC and WPC luxury vinyl flooring tolerate standing water.


Most often, LVP is designed to click and lock together. This design allows the floor to float above the subfloor rather than being attached to it. Therefore, LVP can be installed on cement subfloors as well as most existing hard surface floors. LVT is more likely to come in glue-down brands, although some tile also needs no attachment to a subfloor. A third option, loose lay vinyl, butts together. Planks and tiles remain in place by using friction to grip the floor.

In addition to a wide range of luxury vinyl flooring products, Carpet Concepts offers services that include residential and commercial installation and custom showers and tub surrounds. We bring these services to Perry Hall, White Marsh, Parkville, Kingsville, and nearby communities. You can view our online product catalog to see what we offer.
