Introducing our Real Wood Veneer range of luxury vinyl tiles. The Nest Fern has a real wood top layer with an SPC backing which is made from an incredibly strong stone-based material to give it durability.
Its real wood veneer means you get the best of both worlds with all the classic beauty of real wood combined with all the practical benefits of luxury vinyl tiles. The top layer of wood means that each plank has a unique grain as opposed to a synthetic wood top layer where the pattern will repeat itself.
The finish of the Nest Fern is smooth with a lacquer that protects the floor whilst giving it a lovely shine. The colour is a warm brown with some gorgeous knots and natural grains. 0.5mm underlay is also included giving you one less thing to worry about. Waterproof and scratch-resistant, and easy to fit, choose the Nest Fern for practical meets stylish flooring that will look great in any room.
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.
