LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile, and in the last ten to fifteen years has seen a massive upsurge in popularity in the home. More hard wearing than sheet vinyl (also often called lino) due to being a more solid product, and more waterproof than wood or laminate flooring, LVT has become an excellent option for kitchens, bathrooms and other wet areas, as well as the rest of the home. Suppliers and products such as Karndean and Amtico are famous for leading the LVT market, however Quick-Step, a brand known for its revolutions in the laminate and engineering flooring market is making strides in LVT as well.
LVT also has the option of customisation with different feature strips to run between the tile effect styles, which gives the floor an extra sense of style. The wood plank effect also looks incredibly real, but of course with the benefit of actually being waterproof, which other wood or wood-effect products are not. You can also achieve different angles and styles with LVT due to the fact that it is fitted and stuck down plank by plank, meaning your floor can be truly unique.
The fitters we use for LVT products are well trained in not only the laying of the product but the floor preparations that happen beforehand, involving a layer of screed or plywood to completely smooth out any small knocks or bumps in the floor before the product is laid.
