AD – This is a contributed post. Please see my Disclosure page for more details.


LVT is the abbreviation for Luxury Vinyl Tiles – often referred to as luxury vinyl flooring – and it is the pinnacle of design in innovative flooring.

Many years ago, these products were seen as flimsy products in place of laminate or real hardwood flooring, but over time and many years of researching the pros and cons of luxury vinyl flooring, it has become the number 1 choice for busy homeowners looking for long term investment in their home design.


Benefits Felt

There are many benefits to choosing vinyl tiles and not all of them are easy to spot with the naked eye.

The overall design and patterning of planks or tiles are the driving force of why we would choose vinyl, but beneath those designs are invisible forces at work that make your life much easier. The top layer has several qualities that provide durability, practicality and resistance to scratches and stains, providing incredible ease in keeping them clean and maintained.

Incorporating strength through each layer ensures your floor will stick around for years to come.

The Layers

It’s important to point out that not all luxury vinyl flooring incorporates as many as 5 layers to do its job as some are known to incorporate fewer.

Whatever the amount, it is the job of vinyl to keep your floor flexible and thin, whilst employing its protective measures to make the floor is 100% waterproof and highly durable. Its top protective layer specialises in being scratch, stain and moisture resistant whilst also being transparent. Below this layer is where other forces are at work, such as the design layer which gives the overall quality a realistic look and smooth feel to perfectly replicate its real-life counterpart.

The design layer is a picture representing the look and style you are going for, whether it be light or dark woods or a stone style. It’s a perfectly presented layer that hides the various layers that cover impact resistance and moisture-proof core layers.
