shutterstock_126295289Vinyl has been a constant in residential and commercial flooring since the introduction of linoleum over a century ago. Vinyl is as popular now as ever, though the products currently offered are vastly different than the vinyl of your childhood. The fastest growing segment of vinyl flooring is what has popularly become known as Luxury Vinyl Tile, or LVT. At Floor Coverings International of Waukesha and Milwaukee, we’re experts in Luxury Vinyl Tile, and we’ve found our customers love the product in their home. Read on for some more information on LVT, as well as for some reasons why it might be right for your home.

What Makes Luxury Vinyl Tile Different?

LVT, which offers 3D printing technology for added depth and realism, is incredibly durable, with a high performance wearlayer. It’s the utilization of this high-end 3D printing that gives Luxury Vinyl Tile its incredible look, which can be made to mirror the look of traditional tile, as well as natural stone. Much like engineered hardwood, luxury vinyl tile gives you all the look of traditional tile with added durability and strength. Furthermore, Luxury Vinyl Tile is far more affordable than tile and natural stone. Why pay the price for travertine when you can get a product that looks similar and lasts longer for less?

In the same way that Luxury Vinyl Tile replicates traditional tile with added benefit, it also updates vinyl with a few added perks. LVT offers all of the benefits of traditional vinyl with added grace and sophistication, offering for more look than most single-sheet vinyl options. Furthermore, Luxury Vinyl Tile doesn’t announce itself as vinyl in the same way that older options tended to, giving it the opportunity to blend in with other flooring projects much easier. Luxury Vinyl Tile is essentially the perfect middle ground between the two products, making it a great choice for residential and commercial spaces alike.
