Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl flooring looks like real wood and stone but 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. Homeowners have the flexibility to create their own floor design with individual LVT planks and Vinyl tiles, as opposed to sheet vinyl.
Luxury vinyl is durable, waterproof flooring that has the look of hardwood or stone without the hefty price tag. Also referred to as LVT/LVP, luxury vinyl is made up of multiple layers that aid in the design, durability, and ease of maintenance of this wonderful flooring choice.
Is Vinyl Waterproof?
Luxury vinyl is waterproof, making it ideal in all rooms, especially kitchens and bathrooms. Thanks to its multiple layers, luxury vinyl can withstand moisture, heavy foot traffic, scratches and spills.
So we’ve covered the basics of LVT but why is it suddenly taking over our homes?
Top 10 Benefits:
As already mentioned 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 and residential environment. Excessive traffic, flame resistance and exposure to moisture; there’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 you’re using a high quality product that’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. There’s nowhere in your home we wouldn’t recommend using LVT – it even looks great on the stairs.
Unlike tile 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.
5. Insulates Sound
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. We’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.
7. Innovative Design
Unless under the expert eye, it’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.
There’s a huge range of unique vinyl designs to choose from. Mosaic and checked patterns 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!
8. Easy Installation
Available in click or stick down options, 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; making DIY projects much easier.
We all know accidents happen, if a piece of LVT suffers damage it’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, LVT flooring will uphold its high performance throughout an average 20-30 year lifespan. As a result, we’re so confident in the manufacturing process and longevity, each flooring comes with an extensive warranty.

Luxury Sheet Vinyl
Vinyl, or resilient sheet as it is often referred to, is incredibly realistic and can mimic almost any type of floor covering including hardwood, ceramic and stone. It is extremely easy to maintain. It is softer, quieter and warmer to walk on. Vinyl is often referred to as Resilient Flooring, referring to its outstanding durability. Hardwearing vinyl layers are combined with foam padding and backing materials, sealed together at high temperatures and produce a very strongly bonded product.
