When you think of warmth, one of the first flooring options that comes to mind is carpets. Although carpets are very cosy, LVT floors provide better underfoot comfort. This makes them an exceptionally comfortable option for offices where the staff needs to be on their feet for long hours—or even homes.


One of the most distinctive qualities of laminate flooring is its ability to mimic several other flooring options. You can create a similar overall look to real wood, ceramic tiles, or vinyl—with lower installation and purchase expenses. This means that LVT is a more feasible option for low-budget home improvement projects. LVT is a better option than wood for water-prone areas such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens.

LVT is also available in a wide range of colour schemes and abstract patterns to help you match your interior design. You can opt for a stone-like look, textured patterns, or a blonde look as per your preference. LVT floors can also be fashioned like wood boards to amp up the exterior look of your home.


LVT is made up of incredibly sturdy material and is considered one of the most rigid flooring options available in the market. The tiles comprise five different layers, fused on top of one another with pressure and heat. The layers also include a print film layer, vinyl core, vinyl backing, a wear layer, a protective layer, and a hard coating. This is why LVT is an excellent choice for high-traffic areas such as stores, malls, offices, showrooms, and other big families. Compared to other flooring options, LVT has a higher tendency to withstand chips, cracks, stains, and dents.

LVT floors are a lot easier to clean compared to hardwood and wall-to-wall carpets. All you need to do is sweep and mop them. Much credit for this goes to the top-most protective layer that keeps your LVT flooring in good condition. On the other hand, hardwood floors require routine polishing, refinishing, and waxing.
