Discovering the Appeal of Luxury Vinyl Tile: The Flooring Revolution

When it comes to choosing new flooring for a home, homeowners are increasingly turning to an option that balances cost, durability, and style: Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT). At Frank’s, we’ve seen a surge in interest for this type of flooring, and it’s no wonder.

This flooring solution offers an unbeatable combination of affordability, resilience, and a stunning array of style options. Let’s dive into why LVT is rapidly becoming a household favourite across the North East.

Affordability: Budget-Friendly without Compromising on Style

One of the most attractive features of this type of flooring is its affordability. Compared to traditional materials like hardwood, stone, or ceramic tile, Luxury Vinyl Tiles offer a cost-effective solution that doesn’t skimp on appearance. This makes it an ideal choice for homeowners who are looking to renovate on a budget but still want a floor that looks posh and polished. At Frank’s, we stand by our promise: “It’s Impossible To Buy Flooring For Less.” LVT fits perfectly into this ethos, providing a high-quality look for less!

Resilience: Built to Last

Beyond its cost-effectiveness, it is renowned for its remarkable durability. Made from layered materials that include a sturdy backing, a high-definition photographic layer, and a protective wear layer, LVT is designed to withstand the rigours of daily life. Whether it’s the hustle and bustle of a busy family kitchen or the frequent foot traffic in a hallway, LVT holds up beautifully against scratches, dents, and stains.

Additionally, it is exceptionally water-resistant, making it suitable for areas prone to moisture such as kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. This resilience extends to its maintenance as well; the flooring is easy to clean and requires minimal upkeep, which is a boon for any busy homeowner.

Variety of Styles: The Beauty of Choice

Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons homeowners choose LVT is the vast array of design options available. Whether you’re after the rustic charm of handscraped hardwood, the elegant look of natural stone, or the sleek appeal of polished concrete, we offer designs to match. The high-definition photographic layer that forms part of the construction allows for detailed, accurate reproductions of other materials. This means you can achieve the look of more expensive flooring at a fraction of the cost.

The variety doesn’t end with mimicking other materials; LVT comes in a range of colours, patterns, and textures. Whether you prefer a classic look or something more contemporary, there’s an option to suit your style.

Practical Benefits: Ease of Installation and Comfort

Another big advantage of LVT is its ease of installation. Many LVT options feature a click-lock system that allows the tiles or planks to be easily snapped together, making it possible for DIY-savvy homeowners to install their own flooring. This not only saves on installation costs but also makes it a quick and less disruptive update to any room.

Furthermore, LVT is softer underfoot compared to traditional tiles or stone, thanks to its layered construction. This can be a relief in spaces where you spend a lot of time standing, like kitchens. Some LVT products also come with built-in soundproofing layers, making them a quiet flooring option that reduces noise transfer – perfect for busy homes.

The Eco-Friendly Choice

In today’s environmentally conscious world, more homeowners are looking for sustainable options. LVT scores well here too, with many brands offering products made from recycled materials. Additionally, the long life and durability of LVT mean it doesn’t need to be replaced as frequently as other flooring types, reducing waste over the long term.


Whether you’re updating a cottage in the countryside or modernising a flat in the city, LVT offers a practical, attractive, and cost-effective solution that meets the needs of diverse lifestyles and budgets. Pop into your local Frank’s today, and let us help you select the perfect LVT flooring to transform your home into a stylish and welcoming space.
