Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is the fastest-growing type of flooring worldwide. With manufactures such as KARNDEAN, AMTICO,COLONIA and CAMARO offering a extremely comprehensive range of styles no wonder LVT is becoming an increasingly popular type of flooring.
WHAT IS LUXURY VINYL TILE?
Luxury Vinyl Tile is a type of hard flooring. It has a wide range of design options, and can replicate the look of natural stone or wood flooring, without the extensive installation or maintenance costs associated with either.
LVT is made up of several layers:
A polyurethane coating witch is the protective clear layer known as the ‘wear layer’
The print film layer which contains the graphic the vinyl core and the tile backing to provide rigidity
WHY LUXURY VINYL TILE FLOORING
For areas that need or particularly want hard surface flooring for aesthetic or practical reasons, Luxury Vinyl Tile is one of the best options, combining many of the benefits of other types of hard flooring, without the drawbacks of price or complex maintenance requirements.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
Hard surface flooring can be notoriously difficult to maintain: natural wood and stone flooring have very specific maintenance requirements to avoid staining or surface damage which will impair the look of the natural material, and may require very labor-intensive maintenance: daily mopping and sweeping, combined with regular waxing and polishing to protect the surface from scuffs and stains.
In contrast, LVT flooring has a protective wear layer, which means that, for the most part, it doesn’t need waxing or polishing, and instead only requires mopping and sweeping to maintain its as-new appearance. Depending on the thickness of the wear layer, you can get up to 10 years’ use before it needs to be reapplied.
LVT offers a wide range of design options, mimicking the look of natural stone or wood at a fraction of the price, and without the complex maintenance requirements.With ranges suitable for both domestic and commercial usage.
