The benefits of LVT

Renovations are on the rise; 53% of homeowners have carried out improvement works in the last 10 years*. With consumers more likely to revamp their current home than move, the market has got lots of great options to choose from, says Matthew Brook, National Sales Manager for Moduleo UK and Eire.

Tiles, carpets, wood and solid stone are all popular choices when it comes to deciding what to place on your floor at home. Yet, one flooring choice that is gaining in popularity is luxury vinyl tiling (LVT).

Advances in technology and manufacturing processes have meant that flooring can easily compete with the above, especially natural materials that are so popular with homeowners.

With many benefits, LVT can be a sure way of future-proofing your home. New entrants to the market include products with built-in underlay such as engineered vinyl. This means consumers have a lot less sub-floor preparation, streamlining the process.

Replicating the look of real wood and stone, the vinyl comes in either planks or tiles. Made up of numerous layers, the flooring is durable and versatile, making it the perfect product for any renovation project.

Boasting exceptional sound-absorption qualities and being soft underfoot, vinyl can be a great alternative to solid stone in areas such as the bathroom and kitchen.

Another great benefit of LVT is that it is also a great eco-conscious choice which is a topic high on the consumer agenda. The flooring can be made from up to 50% recycled materials and incorporate water-based inks and PU coatings.
