Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are one of the hottest trends in domestic flooring right now. But industry professionals, top interior bloggers and commercial designers have been extolling its virtues for a while now.
We asked five interior experts & manufacturers why they come back to LVT time and time again.
Here’s what they said...
LVT can be used in any room
Although particularly suited to bathrooms and kitchens, luxury vinyl tiles can be used in virtually any room in the house (and in plenty of commercial settings too).
“I have LVT in 4 rooms of my house now, and budget permitting I would change any of the room that remained to LVT. I just love it! It’s warmer underfoot, and withstands having things dropped on it without damage to the item (usually) or the floor.
“So easy to keep clean and we haven’t had any issue of fading either. I’d definitely recommend it.”

Bold LVT flooring designs are on trend
Patterned tiles don’t have to feel fuddy-duddy. Black and white patterned tiles on the floor gives an edgy graphic design - which will make a strong visual statement in your home.
For smaller hallways pick a bold tile - this tricks the eye into making the space appear bigger, ideal for slim entrance ways.
A tiled pattern is a practical solution for busy homes – especially if your room is open-plan.

It's easy to install
If you have any floor laying experience, you'll appreciate you easy LVT can be to cut and lay.
"Vinyl flooring has several advantages over other flooring types such as tiles or wood. It's very easy to install, you can find a great selection of patterns to suit practically any home, and of course, there’s LVT to suit almost all budgets. But one of the main advantages of the product is its great resistance to dirt and water - it’s so very easy to clean and maintain."

It's easy to clean and maintain
On cleaning and maintaining your LVT, Stephanie Cvetkovic has some top tips:
“Many people presume that all Luxury Vinyl Tiles are waterproof, and clean them accordingly, often using an excess of water. Although it's perfectly fine to clean your LVT with a damp mop (as you would any other floor) over-wetting the tiles may cause them to buckle, and dampen the area below the tiles creating additional problems.
"When cleaning LVT, simple is best (another one of its many benefits!) Unless you have tough stains to remove, I recommend simply vacuuming or brushing your flooring, followed by a once-over with a well-wrung out mop or cloth in hot water and a multi-purpose floor cleaner (my favourite is Flash). Be sure to allocate enough time for your LVT to dry thoroughly before you let the kids in to play!"

It can add the finishing touch to your kitchen renovation
When renovating your home, particularly your bathroom or kitchen, many top manufacturers will recommend LVT to help you achieve a specific, high quality look.
"We have used Luxury Vinyl Tiles in many of our kitchens installations as the tiles are well suited. The tiles are waterproof, hard wearing, good value and unlike ceramic or slate tiles are not freezing to the touch! We would recommend these tiles for kitchen installations.”
