What are the benefits of LVT Flooring?
As stated, luxury vinyl tiles offer the many benefits expected of vinyl, this includes the insulation offered with vinyl, as well as the minimal maintenance. LVT flooring is typically water resistant, meaning you needn’t worry about the occasional spill. This makes this type of flooring ideal for homes with heavy footfall, children or pets as you won’t have to spend weekends scrubbing the floor.
Unlike sheet vinyl, vinyl tiles are pre-cut into rectangles for ease when it comes to installation. You can simply lay your vinyl tiles down on your floor without need for underlay.
Why choose oak LVT?
Our luxury vinyl tiles come in an array of designs and colours. Popular options include white, grey and slate vinyl tiles, however oak is also a firm favourite. LVT oak flooring allows you to achieve the effect of wooden flooring in rooms where you typically can’t install wood, for example, the kitchen or the bathroom. Oak LVT leaves a stunning finish in such areas, while standing the test of time due to the water-resistance.
This being said, this type of flooring is versatile and durable enough for any room of the house, including the living room, bedrooms or the hallway. The strength of LVT also makes it suitable for commercial or office spaces, allowing you to achieve the effect of solid wood, while being a fraction of the price.
How to style your oak LVT flooring in your home
Classic oak LVT is incredibly easy to style. The natural hues of oak can create a sleek style in a modern home, but also add to a rustic aesthetic in a traditional house. If you’d like to achieve a more natural look, opt for vinyl which displays more knots and grooves that you would expect with real wood. For something more contemporary, consider a glossier oak tile with minimal wood detailing.
Our oak LVT comes in a range of shades, including a light oak, a medium and a dark oak. The darker hue is recommended if maintenance is your main concern, as this colour is unlikely to show marks or stains as much as the lighter hues. However, if you’d like to maximise your available space, a light oak can create the illusion of an elongated room and make your home appear more open.
From light to dark oak, this colour is easy to pair with any wall or furniture colours. The natural shade allows you to experiment with bright sofas or statement wallpaper in any colour or pattern. But for something more minimalist, you can add to the natural aesthetic with neutral tones and soft furnishings.
