What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?

Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are one of the fastest growing flooring options for commercial use. While vinyl flooring certainly isn’t new, LVT offers an unmatched combination of style and function. Here are just a few reasons you should consider luxury vinyl flooring the next time you upgrade or redesign your commercial space.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl sheets tear easily and certainly aren’t the most durable flooring, but don’t confuse sheets with LVT. Designed as a durable flooring alternative to carpet, wood, or tiles, LVT can quickly be installed on top of the existing flooring—in options that are easily mistaken for wood, stone, or ceramic tile. Perfect for elevating the look of any space and supporting absolutely any design style and aesthetic.

The Beauty Of A Natural Flooring Without The Cost

Tile flooring is nothing new, but these aren’t your granny’s tiles. With large and growing options in realistic wood, ceramic, and natural stone, you can have the look and feel of natural flooring without the high price tag. And we’re not just talking about a handful of faux stone or wood options but hundreds of options in each. Some varieties even come with a bit of texture.

Not Your Standard Tile

Forget the standard tiles sizes, as LVT is available in a variety of sizes in square and rectangular shapes. For example, your wood-inspired tiles come in rectangular planks, just like real wood. This not only makes the tile look more realistic, but makes it possible to create stylized patterns and designs just as you would with real wood or stone.

All The Benefits Of Vinyl

Vinyl flooring is highly durable, making it ideal for commercial use. This doesn’t just extend the life of your flooring investment, but also minimizes the need for area rugs, runners, and chair mats. Unlike natural wood or stones, LVT can withstand droppage, wheeled machinery, heavy machinery, temperature changes, stains, water and moisture. Unlike wood, it does not shrink, warp, scratch, or scuff—and it has a bit more traction than stone. This means it can be installed in almost any room, including kitchens and bathrooms. It’s also the ideal for buildings with kids or pets. You achieve the look you want with durable flooring options.

Easy To Clean And Maintain

Luxury vinyl flooring is incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Sweep or vacuum and use a damp mop a few times a week and that’s it! No deep cleaning needed. In fact, you should not steam clean your vinyl. While water resistant, steam can work its way between the joints, causing them to lift. Keep a few extra tiles around in case you have damage, but your LVT will hold up even in your high traffic areas.
