Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is the fastest growing segment in the flooring industry. Until recently, LVT has mainly been used for commercial installations but, due to its many advantages, it is becoming increasingly popular for residential flooring projects. So why would you want to consider LVT flooring for your Berkhamsted home?
LVT flooring systems use advanced realistic photographic technologies to replicate real wood, ceramic and stone. There is a huge selection of styles, from distressed hardwood, to tactile slate and woven textiles.
The difference between LVT and normal vinyl is that LVT is sold as individual tiles of varying shapes and sizes, so you can choose how you want to lay out your floor. Whatever the style of your home in Berkhamsted, LTV flooring will complement it perfectly.
Four layers are fused together to produce the final LVT product: a resilient vinyl backing, a vinyl color layer, a photographic film layer, and a urethane or aluminum oxide top layer. This makes LVT extremely tough and waterproof, suitable for any room in the house. It is scratch, stain, dent and scuff resistant. In fact, in terms of durability, LVT may be overqualified for residential use, as it’s made to withstand commercial wear and tear. Thus, it is not unusual to see 20-25 year warranties on LVT products.
Safety & Comfort
LVT is often less slippery than many natural surfaces and some tiles include a slip-resistant layer for added safety. LVT is also much softer and warmer underfoot than ceramic tile or stone.
LVT is a fraction of the price of real hardwood or stone.
LVT is easy to maintain by simply damp mopping it.
As you can see, it is worth considering LVT flooring for your home, due to its winning combination of aesthetics, comfort, safety, maintainability, value for money and durability.
