Luxury vinyl tile can recreate the look of almost any flooring material with the durability and easy maintenance of regular vinyl flooring. Many Southport homeowners are now using luxury vinyl tile in areas where stone, marble, or ceramic might be impractical. At Floor Coverings International Shallotte, we offer a wide range of luxury vinyl tile products for you to choose from!
Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT for short, features a construction that’s very similar to traditional vinyl tile. The main differences are in thickness and top coating. LVT is designed with a much thicker base or mid-layer that helps to increase the tile’s life span. A thick top coating also protects against gouges and scratches that can occur over time. These added elements make LVT a great option for high-traffic areas like the entryway or kitchen.
Luxury vinyl tile is a great option for homeowners who want a low-maintenance floor. LVT is waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about accidental spills sinking into your floor and causing stains or long-term damage. Plus, LVT’s cleaning needs are simple: simply sweep or vacuum your LVT floors regularly, and periodically mop them with a mild cleaner.
At Floor Coverings International Shallotte, we offer LVT from a range of trusted brands. Some of the most popular styles include tiles that imitate hardwoods like cherry, oak and maple, along with those that look like travertine, stone, and marble tile. We partner with industry-leading manufacturers like Armstrong & Shaw to bring you competitive prices on a wide range of quality flooring.
When shopping for new flooring, keep in mind that luxury vinyl tile is different than the cheap peel-and-stick tile sold at most home improvement stores. Luxury tile not only looks more elegant but is thicker and more resilient than the peel-and-stick variety. While most luxury tiles are installed with adhesive, some can be installed with plastic grout-like strips between each tile for a more realistic look. Though the installation process is relatively fast for LVT, we definitely recommend calling in a professional team to ensure that the tiles are installed correctly.
