Introducing our Real Wood Veneer range of luxury vinyl tiles. Topped with a real wood layer and backed with a strong type of material called SPC, the result is flooring that brings the look and feel of natural wood with all the luxury vinyl tile benefits.
Because of the durable backing, you’ll be able to install this with underfloor heating where the temperature will be changing, and also in bathrooms or other humid rooms.
Visually the Nest Grove is a classic beauty. Silky smooth, with an invisible oiled finish that means the colour is light, airy and all-natural. The light colour is accentuated by the clean wood effect for those who prefer something sleek and classic rather than rustic grains. It also has a 0.5mm underlay included meaning it’s easy to fit with just a simple click. Fresh, light and practical, choose the Nest Grove for any room of your home.
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.
