For decades, Vinyl flooring has been a favorite of homeowners for the many benefits it provides: durability, affordability, easy maintenance and warmth. But the dated sheets of vinyl we remember from our grandmothers’ kitchens have been made-over!
Luxury Vinyl Tile, or LVT as it is often called, offers a whole new generation the benefits of vinyl flooring with a MAJOR upgrade! So what changed? Well, for starters, technology has improved so much that the materials are now available in “planks” and “tiles” that closely mimic the look and feel of natural materials like wood and stone. Special grout can also be used to really achieve the look of stone or ceramic tile floors. LVT is also thicker than old school vinyl and those arduous waxing efforts are a thing of the past.
Luxury Vinyl Tile floors are pet-friendly and perfect for high-traffic areas. True to its vinyl heritage, it’s great in kitchens, bathrooms and entryways as it stands up to water and won’t easily stain or fade. Because LVT is installed in tiles rather than sheets, repairing damaged floors can be addressed easily by replacing problem sections instead of entire floors. Clean-up is simple too; just sweep or vacuum regularly and give an occasional mopping with mild detergent.
LVT is warm, resilient, easy to clean, and available in beautiful finishes that will give a designer edge to any room in your house. It may not give your home the boost in value that comes with real wood and ceramic floors, but the trade off in benefits gives a compelling reason to consider it for your next room make-over.
