Vinyl is incredibly durable, perfect for living spaces that see high foot traffic such as the living room and kitchen. It is also scratch, water and stain proof, ideal for bathrooms or any room that sees high exposure to these. Vinyl’s slip proof surface is beneficial if your household sees lots of spillages!
Vinyl is also able to withstand the fluctuating temperatures of underfloor heating, something that is becoming increasingly common in modern homes. It is therefore worth getting on board with this trend if you can as it will help the selling value of your home when it is time to move on. We have also included 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.
