Grey flooring is growing increasingly popular in modern homes, presenting a slick, clean cut look, something that matches perfectly with the contemporary look. However, because this flooring is so versatile, it’ll also suit a traditional interior with the knots, grooves and variation of colours adding to the naturalistic premise. You get the stunning look of natural wood with vinyl but at a cheaper price.
Vinyl hosts an array of benefits, notably practicality. It is extremely easy to clean, with not needing too much attention. The darkness of this product is advantageous as it is better at disguising dirt than a lighter flooring. Additionally, it is also water, stain and scratch proof, making it suitable for rooms such as the kitchen, utility and bathroom. This flooring would also look stunning in the living and bedroom.
Vinyl is famous for its durability, looking impressive for a long time even after years of heavy footfall. Therefore ,you should have no concerns laying it in rooms that experience more foot traffic. As well as this, vinyl is compatible with underfloor heating, something real wood isn’t. We also offer a generous 30 year guarantee to give you peace of mind!
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.
