Luxury vinyl flooring can give your home a fresh new look and the good thing about it is that it is hassle free to install. Vinyl flooring is versatile and can be installed anywhere in your house. It can enhance the aesthetic value of your space. It is durable, affordable and super easy to clean and maintain.
When we talk vinyl, you probably think of the large rolls of thin flooring used widely in the past as a cheap alternative to carpet. Whilst that is also still available, with technological advancements, vinyl flooring has come a long way and there are now many more options to choose from, providing a choice against laminate and wood flooring as well as carpet.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Known for visual appeal, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring can mimic wood, stone and other flooring types such as marble through the use of a photographic layer that can also come in a wide range of colours.
A thick and sturdy wear layer enhances the durability of the vinyl and lends warmth and softness underfoot. Ensure your vinyl is safe from stains, dents, scuffs etc., it is suggested that you buy vinyl with a urethane-based topcoat and finish.
There are many brands of LVT on the market and they will have different compositions, thicknesses and also methods of installation. For example, SPC vinyl flooring has a core of stone plastic composite, a robust and waterproof material but quite heavy compared to other materials such as WPC, which stands for wood plastic composite. This may affect the lifespan, sound impact and other aspects of the flooring, so it is worth researching the options fully to make sure you get the right product for your space.

The Benefits of Vinyl Floors.
It’s easy to install
It is easy and quick to install click vinyl flooring as it uses a locking mechanism, although each brand may use a different style, and there is no requirement for the boards to be glued down. Many also come with a built-in underlay, saving time and money.
Plus the flooring can be used immediately after it has been laid, so no long waiting times for glue to dry!
The best part about using vinyl is that it is waterproof making it ideal for use in areas where spillage is highly likely, such as kitchens and bathrooms. The planks lock together fully so that no water seeps down to the subfloor.
It can be used with underfloor heating
You would need to check the manufacturer’s recommendations, but most click vinyl flooring can be used with most underfloor heating systems. They do vary though and if this is an important feature make sure you find the right product.
It’s available at competitive prices
Another reason for selecting vinyl flooring for your property is that it is extremely affordable and can offer significant savings over other flooring materials, such as solid wood. Aesthetically it mimics real wood beautifully, but with a whole host of performance benefits and at a much lower price.
It’s easy to clean & maintain
Hardwood can warp due to moisture and carpet can get stained very easily. Both these types of flooring are difficult to maintain but luxury vinyl flooring is scratch and stain-resistant waterproof.
