LVT TILE IS DESIGNED TO IMITATE NATURAL STONE, WOOD OR GRANITE FLOORING.
Tiling is a very important part of remodeling any home. Tiles are often used in kitchens, bathrooms, basements and occasionally even offices, living rooms or bedrooms. The type of tile used goes a long way in determining how it will look and how long it will last. “LVT” is a term used to describe a specific kind of tiling available today that has several distinctions that separate it from other tiles.
WHAT IS LVT?
LVT is an acronym for “luxury vinyl tile.” It is a marketing term used by numerous companies to describe their vinyl flooring that is decoratively patterned to emulate the look of natural wood, granite or other types of flooring. There is no exact definition of the term, only generalities. It is not actually a separate category of tiling, simply a way of describing standard vinyl tiling that has been designed to match natural flooring.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF LVT?
The most obvious advantage of luxury vinyl tiling is the price. It is much cheaper to produce than actual flooring made of granite or wood or stone. According to manufacturers, luxury vinyl tiling is often scratch-resistant and more durable than its natural counterpart. It may also be easier to install and more versatile than natural flooring.
ARE THERE A LOT OF STYLES AND VARIATIONS?
Luxury vinyl tile comes in either sheets or planks. There is often adhesive on the back for ease of installation. The term LVT tile may be applied to either vinyl composition tile (VCT) or solid vinyl tile (SVT). VCT tile is made up of both vinyl and other materials, while SVT tile is made up of at least 34 percent vinyl. Whether they are considered “luxury vinyl tile” or not may depend on their patterns.
