Introducing our Real Wood Veneer range of luxury vinyl tiles. Topped with a layer of real wood and backed with a type of material called SPC that's extremely durable, this flooring has the best of both worlds.
The real wood veneer gives you all the authentic beauty of solid wood as each plank has a unique grain, pattern and natural colours. The finish of this floor is brushed and oiled, giving you some natural texture. The light brown shades bring a modern look that will complement any space and style.
Combine the look with all the practical benefits of luxury vinyl tiles and you’re onto a winner! Waterproof, scratch-resistant and suited to changes of temperatures like with underfloor heating, the Nest Aloe is perfect for any room of your home. An extra bonus is that it has a 0.5mm underlay included and is fitted with a nice and easy click-joining system.
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.
