There’s so much to love about this Nest Americano luxury vinyl tile.
The colours are a gorgeous blend of dark coffee hues and light brown tones with the natural-looking knots and grains giving a rustic contrast. The planks feature a square edge which means that each edge is level rather than having grooved definitions around each plank. The finished look of this is an overall surface that’s sleek, contemporary and flawless. The Nest Americano would look at home anywhere – especially in a modern interior.
Luxury vinyl tiles are a brilliant way of getting a high-end look at an affordable price as the vinyl top layer uses the design and texture of wood that looks pretty close to the real deal.
SPC vinyl flooring is also the practical option as it’s made from an extremely strong type of backing made from stone to make it sturdy and durable as well as being waterproof, scratch-resistant and compatible with underfloor heating. This comes with a click-joining system making it a dream to fit in your home – perfect for DIY-lovers!
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.
