  • LVT Vinyl Flooring - Everything you need to know.

    Vinyl flooring is a highly durable floor when installed and maintained correctly, these floors are a great choice for high foot traffic areas and can last up to 20 years! In addition, Vinyl flooring is highly resistant to scratches and stains and it is also 100% waterproof.

    LVT Vinyl at the Floor Store is a type of vinyl flooring that is designed to imitate natural flooring options such as hardwood and ceramic tile. Thanks to technological advances and enhanced design capability, vinyl floors now look and feel nearly identical to the products they’re mimicking.

    LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile - a product that looks like real wood and stone flooring, however, provides many more practical benefits. Available in a range of shapes, sizes and effects, you can create an authentic looking floor in your home, without the practical drawbacks of natural products.

    Our LVT flooring comes in a variety of designs perfect to suit whatever your taste, the design of LVT flooring makes it easy and fast to install. A fantastic advantage when either removing from a room or adding to a room. This floor is so easy to fit, it can practically be fitted with furniture still in the room. You simply click each vinyl tile or plank into place in a repetitive pattern without the need for glue (it acts as a 'floating' floor', rather than being fastened to the subfloor).

    LVT Flooring is simply a fabulous choice of flooring great for adding personality to a space.

     

    What is Luxury Vinyl Tile made of?

    LVT flooring is made by adding a series of layers on top of one another.

    There are many different types of vinyl flooring, and therefore many different ways that vinyl flooring is produced. However, the core material of LVT flooring is a man-made synthetic called polyvinyl chloride resin. Vinyl flooring once contained harmful ingredients that, understandably, put homeowners off, but now it’s totally safe and can even be recycled.

     

    What makes LVT so popular?

    LVT is far more durable than real wood, stone or ceramic tile, it can withstand general wear and tear of daily life much more effectively. The fact that the floor is waterproof also makes it a popular choice for young families and pet owners, or quite simply most homeowners in general as it helps to prevent against rot or destruction of floors by unforeseen circumstances such as – leaking appliances, spilt drinks or messy bath times.

    On top of everything else, it is perhaps the easiest floor to maintain – a quick brush and a simple mop and the floor will look brand new every time.
