Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is getting more popular every day. It’s one of the fastest-growing flooring varieties in the world. But what makes luxury vinyl tile so great, and is it a good match for your home? Find out about the reasons you should install luxury vinyl tile in your house today.
Defining Luxury Vinyl Tile
LVT is one of many types of hardwood flooring. It comes in many different designs, meaning you can find a style to complement practically any room in your house. LVT can match the appearance of wood or stone at a lower price. This type of flooring is also softer and warmer than their wood and stone counterparts. It’s often used in residential atmospheres, but it’s getting increasingly popular in commercial settings as well.
Luxury Vinyl Tile Requires Less Maintenance
One of the benefits of luxury vinyl tile is that it doesn’t require as much maintenance to keep it in good shape. This is mainly in part because of the protective wear layer it has. Because of this layer, your floor won’t have to be waxed or polished. All you have to do is mop or sweep the floor from time to time to keep it looking good. Even with just this little bit of work, your floor can last as long as ten years before you have to replace it!
Flexibility in Design
LVT comes in an almost overwhelming number of designs. Some people like the look and feel of wooden or stone floors. That’s the beauty of LVT. It can match the appearance of other floors, including natural stone and wood. Not only that, but you get that appearance at a reduced price.
There is a misconception about LVT, claiming that designs will wear away over time. This is not the case. The design on the floor is first printed onto the film layer. Then, it gets protected by the floor’s wear layer. This shields your floor’s design from scratches and scuffs, so it will last for many years.
