Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is gaining popularity in Apple Valley thanks to its versatility and long lasting durability. LVT is constructed of several layers of high-density vinyl topped with a 3D printed layer that can mimic the look of materials such natural stone and ceramic. It is water resistant and withstands wear in high-traffic areas, and can be installed as a floating floor or glued onto existing flooring. Today, our experts at Floor Coverings International Dakota County share 3 places your home could benefit from luxury vinyl tile.
Kitchens have historically been a popular place to install tile and many homeowners are discovering the same goes for luxury vinyl tile. Because it’s not made from solid stone or hard ceramic, LVT provides a surface that is more forgiving that natural tile, which adds comfort in areas where you tend to stand for longer periods of time. For homeowners whose kitchen is the centerpiece of their home, LVT can even provide the same visual appeal of granite and marble tile at a much more affordable cost.
Thanks to its resistance to moisture and humidity, LVT is also a great choice for bathroom applications. In bathrooms, where the look and feel of natural stone and tile is desirable, luxury vinyl tile provides you with a comparable material in look and performance. It can even be installed with a non-porous grout that is impervious mildew and mold, with which other types of stone and ceramic tile can’t compete.
Traditional basement flooring applications have been limited to materials such as tile or concrete due to fluctuating levels of humidity. While both are very suitable options, they do not provide the same warmth as luxury vinyl tile, particularly in the fall and winter. The added softness of LVT also makes it a great choice for below-grade dens and playrooms.
