With herringbone’s popularity rising, materials that replicate real wood’s natural glory are cropping up more and more. Herringbone is well known to give the ‘wow’ factor, it’ll really give a grand first impression! It boasts a luxurious and affluent appearance, we’d recommend a dark herringbone if you’re a fan of the traditional interior. Not only does a darker flooring look fantastic but is also better at hiding dirt and debris than a lighter flooring.
Vinyl is one of the most durable choices of flooring available on the market, perfect for busy family households and commercial use or indeed anywhere that sees high foot traffic. It is also scratch, stain and water proof, perfect for rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom that see high exposure to these. If you’re looking for a care free flooring, then vinyl is the perfect choice.
So many of us enjoying the authentic look of real wood but need something at a cheaper price and easier maintenance. If this is you, then vinyl is perfect. It replicates real wood so convincingly, through the grains and knots, that it’s almost impossible to tell it apart from the real thing.

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.
