Features and Benefits of LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile)

10 Mar 2021 by Archiline

Luxury vinyl tiles look more sophisticated than the traditional vinyl tiles. It is a part of “resilient flooring” that includes rubber and sheet-vinyl. The base layer of this tile is primarily made of polyvinyl chloride, offering stability and flexibility. On top of the base layer is a decorative PVC film.

Features and Benefits

Here are some of the features and benefits of LV tiles:

• These tiles are durable as well as cost-effective compared to flooring choices including, stone, ceramic and hardwood

• Maintenance of LV is easy. The recommended procedure to clean these tiles is simple damp mopping. It doesn’t require refinishing, regrouting or resealing that is common for hardwood or engineered-wood floors

• LV tiles are easy to install. With the right instructions and tools, anyone can install them at home without any professional help. A simple glue-down system can also be used for installation

• These are flexible, stable and can be easily replaced

LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) is available in a wide range of colors, styles and sizes, perfect for residential and commercial use. It is a cost-effective option for anyone who wants a stone, tile or realistic wooden look. With the help of photographic and printing technologies, it has become easy to mimic the look and texture of real wood or stone products in these tiles.

LV flooring includes LV tiles as well as planks. These are available in plank form because it imitates solid wooden flooring. Price, style and durability are three important factors due to which these have gained popularity. They look so realistic that people even get specially formulated grout to get stone-like look.

Apart from wood and stone looks, you can also get them in different block colors, graphic patterns and popular textures such as indented steel panels and mosaic pebbles. Since these tiles are installed as a ‘floating floor’, they are a perfect option for people who want to keep changing their flooring to get a new look.

Initially, vinyl tiles were used in areas such as laundry room, kitchen and bathroom due to its resistance to water and durability. But today, with the availability of new styles, they are being used even in bedrooms, living rooms and conference rooms. LVT is also ideal for hospital flooring or any other busy healthcare environment where durability as well as cleanliness is of high importance.

If you don’t want to seek professional help in installing these tiles, you can DIY with the right tools and technique. The substrate that the LV tile will be applied to should be in a good condition. It should be of a suitable material and clean.

Based on the tile you buy, there are two methods of installing LV. In the first method, tiles stick easily with the recommended adhesive whereas in the second method, no adhesive is required because the tiles have a tape down or interlocking system. No matter which installation method is used, it is important to follow the guidelines and recommendations made by the manufacturing company.
