What’s the difference between luxury vinyl flooring and normal vinyl?
Why luxury vinyl?
One of the best features of luxury vinyl (LVT) is its realistic look, whether it’s wood, stone or tile effect they look very natural. One of our customers in Chester commented: “I thought it was real wood”.
We will always suggest luxury flooring as it has lots of practical benefits, as well as looks super stylish. Unlike other products it is warm and quiet underfoot and easy to maintain – a damp mop with hot water is usually enough to keep LVT clean.
It can be fitted in wet and dry areas as it is water resistant, making it a popular choice for open-plan living.
What are luxury vinyl flooring planks?
Luxury vinyl planks are wood and tile effect vinyl planks and tiles – they are not on a roll like you would find with traditional cushion floor vinyl.
There are a variety of sizes available – from planks to tiles, and they can be designed many different ways to give your floor a unique look and style.
