So why is luxury vinyl tile and resilient flooring gaining popularity? A few reasons really.
- The design possibilities. Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is a man-made product. Because of this, it can have a variety of designs and patterns. Customers looking for stone or hardwood floors but don’t want to spend as much money can get a similar look at a fraction of the cost.
- Durability. Remember, luxury vinyl tile is a type of resilient flooring, which means it can take a beating. LVT is made up of layers. The top layer is normally thicker and is resistant to scrapes, scratches and stains.
- Maintenance. It’s not easy balancing work, family, fun and cleaning the house. Luxury vinyl tile is easy to maintain and keep clean. This frees up time for you to do other things around the house or with the family.
- Comfort. While most people love the feel of carpet under their feet, keeping carpet clean and looking beautiful can be taxing. Stone and tile can sometimes be cold or uncomfortable to stand on for an extended period of time. LVT may not be as cushy as carpet, but can stand the test of time because of its durability.
- Easier to install. The time installers are in your home is shorter when choosing luxury vinyl tile. Hardwood flooring and carpet can take longer to install which disrupts your daily activities longer than you may like. LVT gives you a different option.
