We all want our homes to look and feel luxurious, but sometimes that dream can be difficult to achieve—especially when dealing with a budget. This spring, update the look of your home’s flooring with Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), and add some luxury to your home without blowing your budget. Keep reading to learn exactly what you could gain by deciding to install LVT in your home.
Get the look and feel you deserve
What’s great about LVT is it’s incredibly realistic representation of natural materials. Utilizing a new process called photogravure, LVT manufacturers are able to create remarkably realistic 3D photo replications of nearly any flooring type you would like. This new technology means that you’re able to purchase flooring with the look and feel of nature’s best materials—like real hardwood, granite and stone—without paying a fortune for the real thing.
Get the durability you crave
With LVT, you never have to worry about damaging your flooring as a result of spills or excessive wear and tear. LVT flooring is naturally water resistant, making it a great flooring option for families with small children or pets, or for high moisture areas in your home—like your basement, bathroom or mudroom. LVT flooring is also extremely durable, and easily hides any imperfections or signs of excess wear and tear thanks to its scratch-resistant qualities.
Get the ease of maintenance you want
LVT is extremely easy to clean and maintain, and is guaranteed to keep its vibrant color and shiny finish much longer than other flooring options. To properly clean LVT flooring and to prevent dirt or grit from damaging your floor, regular sweeping, mopping, dusting or vacuuming is recommended. When vacuuming LVT flooring, avoid using vacuums that use a beater brush, as this may cause damage to your floor if used for an extended period of time.
In addition to maintenance, LVT installation is a snap … literally. A typical installation can be completed in about half the time it takes to complete a comparable tile or hardwood installation, and offers several installation options, including loose lay or glue down—both quick, easy and DIY friendly.
LVT is anticipated to be a huge home improvement trend in 2016, and is making its way into homes everywhere … will it find its way into yours? Contact Carpetland USA to learn more about our LVT flooring options, or stop by your local Carpetland USA to check out our beautiful LVT options in person.
