LVT, also known as luxury vinyl tile, is a great choice for any room in the home! At Frank’s, we are always up to date with the latest flooring trends and we know that LVT has become extremely popular because of its durability, water resistance, and authentic designs.

If you don’t know what LVT is, let us explain. Luxury vinyl tile is made up from multiple layers and the surface of the flooring features a design layer which is an extremely high quality representation of normally wood, stone, or tiles.

The design layer is topped with a transparent coating that is protective with a built-in stain guard and scratch resistance. This makes this type of flooring an extremely durable and hard wearing option that is comfortable to walk on and also water resistant.

The designs of luxury vinyl tile are completely authentic and can transform any space effortlessly without the drawbacks associated with the natural product.

Top 5 Benefits of LVT

Low maintenance

You’ll be happy to know that luxury vinyl vile is extremely low maintenance, with virtually no effort required. That’s what we like!

All that is required is to generally keep it clean. You can keep LVT clean by sweeping the floor regularly and cleaning it with a spray mop if any stubborn stains are present.


As we’ve mentioned, LVT is highly durable and incredibly hard wearing, which makes it a perfect flooring choice for areas in the home that receive high levels of footfall.

The protective design layer features a built-in scratch and stain guard to avoid damage occurring and is far more robust than wood, laminate, or tiled flooring. In comparison, these types of flooring can easily become worn over the years as a result of daily wear and tear.

If you are on the hunt for something even more hard wearing, we stock luxury vinyl tile that has been designed to withstand heavy amounts of footfall and can even be used in commercial properties.


You’ll find that most types of LVT are 100% waterproof, which makes them ideal for applications in kitchens, bathrooms, wet rooms, and anywhere with excess water present. 


The robustness, durability and waterproof properties of LVT make it an extremely versatile and practical choice for all around the home. 

LVT can withstand high footfall normally experienced in areas such as hallways and living spaces and can even be used with underfloor heating in conservatories. The waterproof properties mean it is also suitable for use in bathrooms, utility rooms, and kitchens.

Authentic designs

The final benefit of LVT is that there are endless design choices available at Frank’s. All of our beautiful LVT designs are authentic in their appearance and provide a realistic representation of either wood flooring or stone and ceramic tiles.
