Back in the 1970s the words ‘luxury’ and ‘vinyl’ were not often put together, but with the arrival of Luxury Vinyl Tile – or LVT – all of that has changed! It is a sophisticated flooring choice, a million miles away from the plastic style vinyl of old.
Endless Design Choices
The biggest difference with LVT is the fact that it comes in tiles rather than sheets. This means that the design choices are endless: from graphic patterns and block colours to mosaics and unusual textures.
Modern printing and photographic techniques enable LVT to perfectly mimic the look and texture of real wood or stone and you can even add specially formulated grout to add to the authenticity. For every kind of ‘real’ type of stone or wood product, there is a Luxury Vinyl Tile equivalent. LVT can be a cost-effective alternative to the real thing and is warmer to the touch than real ceramic or stone. It also absorbs sound, giving your home a cosy, peaceful feel.
If wood or ceramic look isn’t what you have in mind for your home, you can choose more adventurous geometric designs and floor patterns. Let your imagination run wild and create a bespoke look for your home: with LVT your rooms really can be as unique as you are!
LVT is easy to maintain
Luxury Vinyl Tile not only looks fantastic, but it is also easy to maintain. With regular sweeping, vacuuming and mopping, the flooring will look perfect for many years. It is highly durable and scratch-resistant which means that is suitable for all areas of your home, even heavy footfall areas. Whereas the vinyl of yesteryear may have been confined to the laundry room or bathroom, LVT can look stunning in any room of your house.
Luxury Vinyl Tile is sophisticated, highly durable and easy to maintain and with professional fitting, a typical installation can be completed in half the time it would take to complete a comparable ceramic tile installation.
Luxury Vinyl Tile could just be the perfect flooring for the modern home. To find out more about LVT, to see our range and to find out how it could work in your home, pop into a Frank’s The Flooring Store today!
