LVT – Resiliant, yet luxurious flooring ideal for commercial and residential properties
Luxury Vinyl TilesÂ (LVT) are renowned as the go-to-flooring for commercial designers and industrial fit-outs. As a robust yet versatile alternative to tiled and hardwood, LVTâ€™s ability to replicate their designs to an intricate detail is much admired. Displaying the character, look and grain of wood flooring or the texture and feel of Italian slate tiles, LVT offers an affordable alternative. As the fastest growing market segment in the flooring industry, homeowners are vastly clicking on to it.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles are an affordable alternative to its substitute flooring products. Bringing luxury designs to your home for significantly lower prices.

Thicker LVT tends to be at the higher end of the pricing range to represent the undeniable quality. A 5mm tile consists of an impressive 0.55mm wear layer to protect the design and increase the longevity of the tile
Manufactured from extremely robust materials LVT is built to withstand the pressures of a commercial environment. Excessive traffic, flame resistance and exposure to moisture; thereâ€™s not much this flooring cannot endure. With many designs made from 100% vinyl, Luxury Vinyl Tiles meet the green building standards for commercial applications. You can rest assured, when laying this flooring in your home youâ€™re using a high quality product thatâ€™s built to last.
Hard wearing, waterproof and providing excellent grip & slip resistance; LVT is perfect for those high risk areas where practicality overrules design such kitchens and bathrooms. The stunning aesthetics make it an ideal solution for dining and living rooms too.
Unlike tiled and wood flooring, LVT provides a warmth underfoot whilst the thickness of the tile adds a cushioned feel. Compatible with underfloor heating, the level of heat conducted through the flooring is impressive.
At an average of 2mm thick LVT is significantly quieter to walk on compared to tiles, wood and laminate. As the thickness of the vinyl increases the sound becomes subdued. High traffic areas would require a thicker tile to guarantee sound and wear prevention.
When cleaning LVT you can afford to be a little rougher compared to other flooring types as the protective layer provides fantastic scratch, scuff, stain, chip, crack and dent resistance. Weâ€™re not saying to get a scouring brush and go all out but tough marks are easily removed. As a hygienic flooring, a simple cleaning regime with a damp mop is suffice. If you require a deep clean, the flooring is resilient to chemical cleaners.
Â Innovative Design
Unless under the expert eye, itâ€™s extremely difficult to differentiate LVT from hardwood and tiled flooring. The design, texture and finish are an impeccable standard. Bevelled edges add realism whilst additional feature strips enhance the detail of the design and eliminate the need for grouting.
Thereâ€™s a huge range of unique vinyl designs to choose from. Mosaic and checked patters are particularly popular with contemporary stylists. Although modernists with a creative flare prefer striking colours and bold configurations. Stand out from the crowd and create your own unique flooring. Mixing multiple tile shapes and colours can result in some wonderful statement pieces, guaranteed to earn admiration from your peers!
Installation is much quicker compared to wood, ceramic or stone flooring. A lower profile makes working with static furnishings, door openings and transitions a lot easier. LVT can be installed over existing plywood or concrete subfloors as long as the surface is flat, smooth and structurally sound.
We all know accidents happen, if a piece of LVT suffers damage itâ€™s much easier to replace. Sold in individual tiled packs as opposed to a vinyl roll, damage to a centre tile is no longer a nightmare. You can simply replace the tile instead of trying to patch up or replace the whole flooring.
Depending on traffic levels, location and maintenance,Â LVT flooringÂ will uphold its high performance throughout an average 25-30 year lifespan.
