Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, is becoming extremely popular in today’s housing and commercial markets. LVT is being used more by commercial and residential designers because of its maintenance, durability, water resistance and cost effectiveness.
Vinyl tile is unique in how it’s manufactured and to its aesthetic appeal. With today’s state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, vinyl “wood” planks and textured “stone” tiles imitate natural hardwood or stone, at lower costs. 3D printing technology adds depth and realism, achieving the same grain and character qualities you see in natural floors. Take a closer look at some of the appealing attributes LVT has to offer:
1) Ease of Maintenance
Regular cleaning with a damp mop is all the maintenance required, so this product is easy to clean every week. With the proper care, this floor should last a lifetime.
2) Exceptional Durability and Scratch Resistance
LVT is known for durability, because of a high performance wear-layer added to the vinyl tile. These products are great for areas with a lot of heavy foot traffic, children or pets because they are more resistant to scratches, stains, dents and scuffs.
3) Water Proof
Vinyl is being used more often in laundry rooms, kitchens, basements and bathrooms due its water proof capability. Who wouldn’t want the look of real hardwood floors without having to worry about the possible water damage that can be seen in these areas. It truly is the best of both worlds!
4) Cost Effectiveness
LVT has the look and feel of real hardwood, while still being one of the most cost-effective products on the market.
