LVT flooring in a San Antonio, TX home

What is luxury vinyl tile?

LVT flooring refers to a form of luxury vinyl flooring where the material is cut into square, groutable, tile-sized pieces to mimic stone or tile, a popular design option since many feel the extra seams add even more to the realism.

Following the flooring trends

Whether you want bold, vivid colors and patterns, marble or terrazzo floors, or a wood surface, such as gray floors for your farmhouse-style kitchen, you can have it all with LVT. Inspired by nature, these include vibrant images of wood, stone, or tile taken with digital photography. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured features like wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed, all of which are particularly popular right now in wood look tile. While this post focuses on LVT, another cut is into long planks (LVP) to echo hardwood boards.

Benefits of LVT flooring

First, there is the affordability factor. While the images are remarkably true-to-life, with even some flooring experts not telling the difference, you will not pay nearly the same price as you would for genuine stone, wood or tile. Second, it is 100% waterproof, making it ideal for the kitchen, bath, or laundry room, but so stylish you will want it in every room in the house, including living/dining areas, bedrooms, hallways, playrooms, and more.

The vinyl itself is strong, but it?s also layered; the top is a transparent, strong melamine sheet that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. It is also simple to keep clean, requiring a daily sweeping and weekly cleaning with a well-wrung mop and manufacturer-approved cleaner. Even installation can be fast and uncomplicated with a floating floor, click, mat and hover.
