This product presents a very convincing imitation of oak’s natural magnificence. If you have fallen for real wood’s charm but need something a little more practical and more wallet friendly then vinyl is the perfect choice.
It is almost impossible to tell the difference between this flooring from its inspiration. This is done by the stunning natural knots and grains that flow gracefully throughout and the colour variation. Oak is very popular due to its neutral, calming tone. This means it will go with many different furnishings and colours your room may have. This flooring would look seamless in an open plan kitchen living and bedroom, complimented by a bespoke rug.
Vinyl is especially popular in busy households due to its impressive durability. It will last for many years looking as good as new even after heavy footfall. As well as this, it is also stain, water and scratch proof, perfect for rooms that see more exposure to this such as the kitchen and bathroom.
Perhaps vinyl’s most useful property is it is able to withstand fluctuating temperatures, meaning you can install underfloor heating, something we are seeing more and more of in modern homes. We also offer a brilliant 30-year guarantee!
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.
