Luxury vinyl flooring and ceramic tile: a comparison

Luxury vinyl flooring and ceramic tile: a comparison

When you shop for tile floors at All Pro Floors in Arlington, TX, you can pick:

● Ceramic or porcelain - durable clay-based materials; denser and harder porcelain is superior and the toughest tile material on the market.

● Luxury vinyl flooring - a multiple-layer material that features a transparent surface coating or wear layer covering the high-tech stone, ceramic, wood, or concrete image layer.

● Laminate - a multiple-layer material always warm underfoot because the core is made of fiberboard.

Luxury vinyl

Luxury vinyl flooring
is the only manufactured floor covering 100 percent waterproof, making it ideal for water-prone spaces like bathrooms. In addition, stain and scratch-resistant luxury vinyl require no maintenance beyond routine sweeping and mopping.

Textured tiles, created with embossing techniques, are most authentic since they look and feel like the flooring materials they mimic.

Ceramic and porcelain

Naturally waterproof porcelain tile is available in many shapes, sizes, and designs that look like wood and stones, such as marble and granite. Luxury vinyl flooring also has these looks.

Ceramic tile tends to be solid in color or simple in design. Ceramics are made of coarse clay, while porcelain, a specialized type of ceramic, is made of fine kaolin clay that is hardened in a kiln at a higher temperature than ceramic clay.


All Pro Floors carry glue-down, floating floor, and loose-lay LVT and LVP flooring styles. Click and lock floating floor tiles need no attachment to the surface beneath them so that they can be laid over any subfloor or hard surface floor.

Loose lay tiles butt together to create a semi-permanent floor covering that can be removed and reused, and ceramic tiles are kept in place with mortar.
