What Is Luxury Vinyl Tile?
There are two types of luxury vinyl: luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT). The former is made to mimic the look of traditional hardwood flooring, and the latter is manufactured to imitate stone or ceramic flooring.
In Monmouth County, luxury vinyl tile offers the benefits of traditional vinyl flooring—namely durability and easy maintenance, with the addition of greater visual appeal. Here we’ll be discussing some of the unique benefits offered by luxury vinyl tile. We encourage you to read on to learn more about this innovative material, and to consider adding it to your Monmouth County home.
Luxury Vinyl Tile Benefits
Believability—Luxury vinyl tile is frequently used to achieve the look of authentic stone or ceramic tile in rooms where they might normally be impractical. For instance, perhaps you wanted to finish your kitchen floors with travertine tile. Although travertine would be beautiful in a kitchen it has a harsh underfoot, and can lead to sore joints and knees if you stand or walk on it for a few hours. Luxury vinyl tile is a great alternative. It mimics stone almost to a tee, and its soft underfoot will ensure that standing and walking in your kitchen won’t become a burden.
Quality— Luxury vinyl tile is different than the cheap peel-and-stick tile sold at most home improvement stores. It’s not only more elegant in appearance, but it’s also thicker and more resilient than peel-and-stick vinyl. While most luxury tiles are installed with adhesive, some can be installed with plastic grout-like strips between each tile for a more realistic look.
