What is LVT Flooring?

LVT, or Luxury Vinyl Tile, is a versatile flooring tile that has the appearance of wood planks or stone tiles, but is more functional for everyday use. Waterproof and durable, it comes in a vast array of colours and styles, making it perfect for most rooms in your home.

What makes LVT so Popular?

LVT has rocketed in popularity because it offers an easy, long-term flooring solution that has the appearance of a natural material. It’s perfect for busy family homes, as it’s easy to clean, making it ideal for messy moments. 

It’s more durable than most wood flooring, and much warmer underfoot than stone, making it the perfect half-way house for a modern home. 

Click LVT is also extremely easy to lay and to maintain, as tiles can be laid or replaced with the click of a plank! All in all, it’s simple to see why it’s the fastest growing flooring type.

What is LVT made of?

LVT gets its durability from its multilayered structure which binds together six layers of high density fibreglass, PVC, and protective guard coating. This creates a thin, yet extremely dense, plank. In fact, a 4mm plank of LVT is much stronger than an 8mm plank of engineered wood.

The realistic design which imitates high-end flooring is grained into the design layer at high pressure to get the most authentic finish.
