Remodeling your home has many benefits you can enjoy right away: greater property value and personal modification are just a few advantages that add pride and enjoyment to your house.
If you only have the budget for one upgrade, simply look down. New flooring gives your home a contemporary appeal while adding warmth and comfort. Choose LVT (or luxury vinyl tile) as your flooring of choice and reap the benefits. Here are a few reasons why this type of flooring is best for nearly every room of your house.
LVT Is a Comfortable Alternative to Other Flooring Surfaces
Unlike hardwood and laminate, LVT flooring is comfortable on the feet. This is due to the composition of the material, which is designed by layering durable construction materials together. LVT is thicker than traditional laminate or vinyl flooring.
The added layer of UV-cured urethane makes the flooring softer and more pliable than hardwood, laminate, tile and other non-carpet flooring surfaces while adding durability at the same time. As a bonus, the extra layering of materials makes the flooring noise-absorbent as well.
LVT Is Extremely Durable
Because luxury vinyl tile is made out of several layers of durable materials, the end result is a flooring option you can worry less about scratching, denting, scuffing or staining. Consider LVT if you have a large, busy family or pets so you can enjoy the same flooring in its original glory for many years.
LVT lasts for many years, depending on the thickness of the material you choose when you first purchase the flooring. The layers that go into your flooring include:
Vinyl core and backing
Your flooring specialist will help you compare different strengths and styles of LVT flooring so you select the best flooring for your budget and personal style.
LVT Is Easy to Install
Luxury vinyl tile is easy to install, although you should always have a professional flooring expert do the work for you. LVT is available in a few types of applications, including self-adhesive or floating tile installations.
The benefit of an easy install for you is twofold: you have less labor costs in having the flooring put in, and if any of your tiles get severely damaged, they can be easily replaced without having to redo your entire room's floors.
LVT Is Versatile
You have a large variety of flooring patterns, designs, and textures to pick from when you choose LVT flooring for your home. Manufacturers can easily manipulate vinyl tiles to mimic hardwood (various wood grains and colors), ceramic or porcelain tiles, and even natural stone or brick.
You get to enjoy the benefits of textured, modern floors without the cost and labor of installing more demanding materials. Ask your flooring specialist to show you hardwood, tile, stone, and other types of flooring materials so you can compare them to LVT alternatives. You'll be surprised to hardly know the difference in appearances either direction.
LVT Is Affordable
You can install LVT flooring for as low as $4.38 a square foot, depending on where you live (availability of materials) and the style of flooring you choose. For an estimate on LVT flooring in your home, talk to your flooring expert. You may be able to get your flooring cheaper if you are remodeling many square feet and choose a bulk discount.
There are many reasons to upgrade your flooring when you only have a budget for one project. New LVT flooring brings you comfort, versatility, durability, and beauty. Speak to our representatives at All Floors and More to learn more about LVT flooring compared to other options.
