Vinyl tile has been around for decades, but it’s also changed a lot in recent years. If you’re cringing at the thought of installing vinyl, you might be thinking of the cheap, shiny flooring from 50 years ago. At Floor Coverings International Shallotte, we often recommend vinyl tile to our customers around the greater Shallotte, Ocean Isle Beach, Southport & St. James area. But, we don’t mean just any vinyl; we’re talking about luxury vinyl tile. Want to know why we love this durable flooring? Read on to find out:

Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tile

  1. Easy Installation. Most luxury vinyl tiles are peel-and-stick with a durable adhesive. Depending on the space, they can even be installed on top of existing subfloor. Each tile comes
    prefinished and ready to install, so you won’t have to worry about a lengthy finishing process after the tile has been laid down. You can just enjoy your new flooring!
  1. Affordable Price. Luxury vinyl tile is often a favorite of homeowners because of its affordable price tag. Relative to natural flooring options like stone tile and hardwood, it is a great deal. The shorter installation process also means that you won’t have to spend as much on a professional team.
  1. Tons of Styles. A special 3D printing process has made it possible for luxury vinyl tile to take on the look and feel of a wide range of other flooring options. You can choose a style of luxury vinyl that looks like wood and comes in thin planks, or a style that imitates ceramic tile and is installed with imitation grout. The options are practically endless!
  1. Durability. Each piece of luxury vinyl tile is finished with a special wear layer. This durable finish helps to protect against scratches and dents over time.
  1. Versatility. As we’ve mentioned, luxury vinyl tile can look like a wide range of flooring materials. This along with its durability makes it suited for a wide range of residential and commercial spaces. You can use luxury vinyl in the living room, kitchen, entryway or office.
