A question we often get asked is why should I choose LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile), over real wood or stone? It’s a good question. After all, the best manufacturers of LVT produce products that look almost identical to the real thing, so why should you choose this?

Firstly you might be surprised to know that there are actually a huge number of benefits to LVT that simply can’t be replicated with their natural counterparts. These include aesthetic features, which help your home look beautiful, and functional benefits that make it a practical flooring choice. 

LVT is also naturally warmer to the touch than real wood or stone. We all know the feeling of stepping barefoot on cold stone! This won’t be the case as LVT stays at a well-regulated temperature, meaning no more cold feet. For those who are especially prone to the cold, LVT products can also be used with underfloor heating (unlike real stone and wood). This makes it a great choice, especially for workplace kitchens and bathrooms. 

A common, yet sometimes overlooked, aspect of choosing a floor is maintenance. With natural stone or wood, it can be tricky to keep it looking good as it requires regular treatment. However, Luxury Vinyl Tiles only need a sweep and occasional mop to keep it looking as good as new…it couldn’t be easier! 

As well as the functional benefits, LVT also offers a range of stunning finishes that you just can’t get with real wood or ceramic products. These include sparkly finishes, rich colours, and even metallic effects! Combine this with LVT’s convincing wood grains and stone textures, and you’re left with a beautiful collection of unique flooring options. 

Have a look through the collections below now to find your ideal floor, or why not order some samples to see how they really do compare to real wood and stone flooring.
