Lifestyle Floors Colosseum 5G Taupe Oak Luxury Vinyl Flooring is 1213mm long, 171mm wide and 5mm thick with a 0.55mm wear layer. The fact we offer a 25 year guarantee with this product truly shows just how much faith we have in its quality and durability.
The micro beveled edges on this flooring add depth and definition, meaning they make a room look larger but to a lesser degree than ordinary beveled edges.
Unlike real wood, wood-style vinyl does not require the same maintenance, especially in terms of water absorption. This makes it easier to clean and less likely to become damaged or need replacing, whilst looking just as realistic.
Vinyl flooring looks identical to the material it emulates, but is always a fraction of the price of authentic alternatives. It is comfortable for walking on, as it is thick, cushioned, and works well with underfloor heating to maintain heat year round. Alternatives do not provide this. Vinyl is also hard-wearing, meaning it can withstand lots of footfall, as well as being non-absorbent, anti-slip and easy to clean. This makes it suitable for the bathroom, kitchen, hallway, lounge and dining room, aided by the fact it is available in the style of any material or pattern you can think of!
If you’re looking to install luxury vinyl tiles by hand, there are a few things to bear in mind:
Glue Down vs Click
Before you purchase your LVT, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Glue Down’ and ‘Click’.
• Glue Down is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Each tile is placed in a desired pattern, and set alongside the neighbouring tiles.
• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Each tile fits together seamlessly and securely, locking into place with a single movement.
Many fitters prefer floating their tiles due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor, however, only click tiles can be fitted this way.
A thin underlay is fitted underneath the tile to encourage cushioning underfoot. Floating helps cut down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.
Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will ensure a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Glue Down and Click tiles can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.
LVT can be installed above most existing hard surfaces, such as concrete, plywood, tiles, and wood boards. Adhesive is applied directly under the tile, setting rigidly into place.
