Benefits of tile effect flooring
As previously mentioned, LVT is a highly affordable alternative to other flooring options, ensuring you get luxury designs in your home for substantially lower prices. Thicker tile effect flooring is typically at the higher end of the price range to reflect its undeniable quality. A 5mm tile is made up of an impressive 0.55mm wear layer to protect the design and increase the lifespan of the tile.
Produced from very robust materials, LVT is built to withstand heavy foot traffic, making it an ideal choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and hallways. Also, it effortlessly handles exposure to moisture and is flame resistant, so there isn’t much this flooring can’t cope with. You can feel confident that when laying this flooring in your home, you are getting a high-quality product that is built to last.
Waterproof, hard-wearing, and providing impressive grip and slip resistance, tile effect flooring is ideal for those high-risk areas where more emphasis is placed on practicality than design. The beautiful aesthetics mean it is a perfect solution for dining rooms and living rooms too. There isn’t a room in your home that we wouldn’t recommend using LVT, it even looks good on stairs.
Unlike tile and wood flooring, tile effect offers a warmth under your feet whilst the thickness of the tile itself provides a cushioned feel. The level of heat that can be conducted through the floor is impressive, meaning it is also compatible with underfloor heating.
With it being an average of 2mm thick, LVT is significantly quieter to walk on in comparison to tiles, wood, and laminate. As the thickness of the vinyl is increased the sound becomes more subdued. Higher traffic areas would need a thicker tile to ensure sound and wear prevention.
When cleaning your LVT flooring, you have the flexibility to be a bit rougher in order to do a deep clean when needed, as the protective layer offers great scratch, scuff, stain, chip, crack, and dent resistance. That’s not to say you need to get a scouring brush and go all out, but difficult marks can be easily removed with this type of flooring. As an extremely hygienic flooring, a basic cleaning regime with a damp mop will be sufficient. If you do need to do a deep clean, LVT is resilient to chemical cleaners.
