Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Luxury Vinyl Tiles, or LVT, are the new flooring product that has taken Europe by storm and has now landed in the U.K.
LVT come in many designs and sizes, usually in a stone or ceramic tile or wood effect they are used to replicate natural flooring products but without any of the practical drawbacks of other flooring types . The benefits of LVT include:
Luxury vinyl tiles will not split, chip, crack or splinter like their natural counterparts such as ceramic tiles, solid wood or stone tiles, yet are a hard wearing floor surface.
Warm and Quiet
Unlike ceramic tiles, luxury vinyl tiles are warm underfoot and quiet to walk on. LVT is compatible with under-floor heating and may help reduce heating bills as the tiles act as an thermal insulator. Luxury vinyl tiles are more soundproof than other floor types such as laminate or wood and as such are ideal for homes where noise is a factor.
Luxury vinyl tiles are designed for ease of cleaning and maintenance. They can be mopped and don’t need re-sanding and lacquering every couple of years.
Luxury vinyl tiles can be used in any room in the home. They are hard wearing enough for heavy traffic such as hall ways and kitchens, warm enough for bedrooms and there are special water resistant versions for use in bathrooms and kitchens.
