Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tile

Posted on

If you are one of the many people who are in the process of building a new home or planning to remodel, you have many decisions to make. When it comes to flooring, consider the benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tile (or LVT). This product has changed remarkably since the old linoleum you may remember from your grandmother’s house. Today’s vinyl tiles are beautiful complements to your interior design. Displaying the character, look and grain of wood flooring or the texture and feel of Italian slate tiles, LVT offers an affordable alternative. In fact, it has been developed and engineered for long-lasting performance. Here are some of the benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tile for your next remodel.


Cost Effective

Luxury Vinyl Tiles are a good value because they are long-lasting and less expensive than ceramic tile or hardwood flooring; even though they can create a very similar look. Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring that can appear to look like other flooring materials will not only cost less from the beginning, but it will cost less to maintain over its lifetime. For those on a budget, LVT is a smart choice, bringing luxury designs to your home for significantly lower prices.



Luxury Vinyl Tiles are visually appealing because they are available in so many colors, patterns, and designs. Some are even made to look like ceramic tile or hardwood floors. And when installed correctly, it may be difficult to tell the difference between LVT and natural products. LVT has also met all the safety standards set for floor materials. These standards include slip resistance and flammability. Because the flooring is engineered, the finish and options available far exceed what may be available with traditional flooring materials.



Luxury Vinyl Tile is very durable and able to withstand a lot of traffic. That is one of the main reasons that so many homes include it in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and in some cases throughout the whole house. If you’re looking for a long-lasting option, look no further! When properly installed, vinyl tiles should last 20 years or more, making them an excellent option for your home. With many designs made from 100% vinyl, Luxury Vinyl Tiles meet the green building standards for commercial applications. You can rest assured, when laying this flooring in your home you’re using a high quality product that’s built to last. LVT is also softer and can also tolerate conditions that these natural materials can’t.


Ease of Installation

Many people choose Luxury Vinyl Tiles because they are easy to install. In many cases, LVT can be installed right over top of existing floors, eliminating the need to remove the old floor. Luxury Vinyl Tiles can also be installed right over the sub-floor. It is a good choice where there are cracks in, or if there may be movement on, the floor. Also, if you’re someone who is looking for an easy remodel–these are the the option for you!


Easy Care

Floors comprised of Luxury Vinyl Tiles are very low maintenance. People love having beautiful floors that don’t require high upkeep and expensive maintenance measures. There is no need for waxing or scrubbing. Caring for a vinyl tile floor is as simple as sweeping up debris and damp mopping. LVT is water resistant which makes it an excellent choice for the kitchen and bathrooms! The surface is also resistant to stains, eliminating the need for professional cleaning and use of other expensive substances, equipment or methods. This is a stress free floor to deal with.
