LVT flooring is a fantastic floor for your home which is quickly becoming more and more popular. LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile.  It is robust, durable and extremely versatile, so can be used throughout your home and even in busy commercial venues.


To find out more about LVT, read our Guide to Luxury Vinyl Flooring.


What does LVT look like?

There is a huge range of styles and colours to choose from.  The idea of LVT is that it mimics the appearance of either wood, stone or ceramic tile flooring.  The overall designs are very realistic and detailed.

Here are some examples:

Reasons to choose LVT

Here are some of the main reasons to choose LVT for your home:



LVT is known as a durable and hardwearing flooring choice.  The flooring is made from multiple layers, with the top layer designed to protect the floor with a built in scratch and stain guard. 



Check before you buy, but most types of LVT flooring are waterproof.  The waterproof varieties are great choices for bathrooms and other wet areas, like utility rooms and kitchens.


Wide choice of designs

There are a huge number of choices from styles that mimic wooden floors, bamboo floors, ceramic tiles, slate and stone.


Underfloor heating compatible

LVT has been specially designed to be compatible with underfloor heating systems. Its clever design allows the sufficient transfer of heat through to the surface, whilst maintaining its structure and ensuring it does not become damaged.


Extremely easy to look after

Simply sweep and mop to remove dust, dirt and stains. We would recommend using Bona Tile and Laminate Spray mop for an all-in-one approach.


Cost effective alternative

You will find LVT much more cost effective than either wooden flooring planks or tiles.
