What’s LVT Flooring?
LVT, or Luxury Vinyl Tile, is a type of vinyl flooring that, unlike sheet vinyl, is designed in individual tiles. Luxury vinyl is also available in plank-style, too, and both LVT and LVP flooring come in styles that mimic the look of real hardwood and stone flooring. But because they’re vinyl, these floors remain super durable, affordable, and easy to clean.
Some benefits of choosing luxury vinyl tile flooring for your home include:
- Easy to Install
- Foot Comfort
LVT flooring is some of the most family-friendly flooring available on the market. It’s waterproof, aka made to withstand all the spills, splashes, and leaks that pets and kids can bring to a busy household. This super-durable, budget-friendly flooring choice is also one of the easiest floors on the market to keep clean. Just simply sweep or mop, and you’re good to go!
LVT is fast becoming one of the most popular types of flooring for homes, as this functional flooring choice is now available in a variety of stylish options. If you’re in love with a wood look or stone look for your interior design, but don’t want to pay an exorbitant amount, LVT is your solution! Flooring America offers LVT brands like Downs H2O and Galvanite that not only mimic the look but also the feel of real hardwood and stone flooring. And you can create your own floor design, whether it be using luxury vinyl planks to make a chevron pattern, or exploring monochrome styles using different shades of luxury vinyl tile.
Ease of Install
Installing LVT floors is quite simple, fast, and easy. The tile or planks are clicked together during install, so that they float over the subfloor. And with such an easy install process, homeowners don’t have to hesitate if they decide to switch up their flooring style down the line.
Though LVT floors can mimic the look of hardwood and stone, the good news is that vinyl floors are not as cold underfoot as these natural sources! If foot comfort and warmth are important to you, then LVT is a great idea for your home. Like it especially warm? LVT floors can also work in conjunction with under-floor heating systems.
