A grey flooring is very popular in modern homes due to its contemporary, slick yet natural look. Vinyl also presents many practical qualities too.
This flooring is effortlessly charming due to its calming, stylish tone. It would suit a modern kitchen or living room beautifully, accompanied by a bespoke rug. The realistic knots, grains and colour variation make for a impressive imitation of real wood, that it is almost hard to believe at first glance that it’s not real wood. Adding sophistication to your home, this high-quality flooring boasts a 30-year guarantee.
Perhaps the best benefit of Rigid Nest Vinyl is that it is SPC, meaning it is a stone composite thus making it super strong. It is engineered in a way that combines limestone and stabilisers to create an extremely durable core. Like any vinyl, it is still 100% waterproof due to the thin layer attached to it, but with added stability and dent resistance.
One of the great benefits of vinyl is that it can be installed with underfloor heating, something real wood cannot do. Not only this, but vinyl is very durable, lasting for many years and still looking as good as the day you bought it. Don’t have any concerns about placing it in areas that see heavier domestic use - it will stand up to whatever is thrown at it.
Vinyl is water, scratch and stain resistant. This means it is the perfect option for your kitchen, bath and utility room. However, due to its easy-going appearance and warmth means it would look stunning in any room. Not only this, but vinyl is soft and cushioned under foot as well as anti-slip.
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.
