Advantages of LVT

Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVT) gives you the look of a real wooden, stone, or ceramic floor, but is more hardwearing and a fully waterproof option so they make an ideal kitchen or bathroom flooring. Our luxury vinyl floors are naturally warm underfoot and scratch-resistant so they’re a great option if you have children or pets. With such a huge range of vinyl flooring to choose we’re bound to have the perfect one for you!

LVT vs Laminate Flooring

While LVT is a great flooring choice, it’s important to understand the differences between this and laminate flooring. Luxury vinyl tiles can be laid with adhesive or floated over an underlay, whereas most laminate floors need to be nailed down.   With LVT, individual tiles can be removed for repairs without compromising the rest of the floor as laminate planks are often permanently fixed into place.

At The Carpet Galleria, we have a great range of LVT style options and laminate styles and effects available. With both laminate floors and LVT, the design you see on top is actually a high-definition photograph designed to replicate natural materials. This is printed on the tile/board before being covered with the scratch-resistant wear layer. Both floors have the option of bevelled edges and a textured finish, too.

The only real difference here is that laminate floors predominantly replicate wooden boards, whereas LVT has a much wider selection of both wood and stone tile designs. Because of this, your floor can have almost any design imaginable, making LVT and Laminate floors popular choices for the design-conscious.

LVT Characteristics

Luxury vinyl tiles are perfect for any home. They have a luxurious feel and beautiful color palette that will create an instant impression on guests or owners, while also being easy to care of with regards to cleaning!

A quick look at how LVT is made

Luxury Vinyl Tiles are so much more than just a durable flooring option. The premium material selection and multiple layers make it tough enough to stand up against wear-and-tear, while also remaining easy on your home’s aesthetics! Here is a quick look at how LVT is made:

The Core

The core is the first layer of your LVT plank or tile, and it’s important to remember that this part will not only support all other pieces in place but also give them their shape.

The inner structure holds up each individual panel so you can lay down any size flooring without worrying about gaps between boards due to unevenness on either side.  Traditional LVT has a core made of strong but flexible Poly Vinyl Chloride, or PVC. 

VT Vinyl Layer

The LVT Vinyl Layer is a strong and durable material that provides the perfect platform for our last two layers.

Photographic Layer

Photographic layers are a great way to bring any design style into the home. You can get LVT that looks like wood, stone or textiles and it will match almost every other type of furniture in your house!

The Protective Wear Layer

The most important part of maintaining your LVT is the protective wear layer! It seals all other layers together and makes it resistant to scuffs, scratches, or dents.
