TLC Massimo Invent Tudor Oak Parquet Luxury Vinyl Tile is 229mm long, 76mm wide, and a thickness of 2.5mm. It also has a wear layer of 0.55mm, and bevelled edges that add depth and definition, meaning they make a room look larger.
The fact this floor is an oak shade also adds atmosphere to a room - the grain and knots add elegance, whereas the shade fits in with modern dark and wooden decor.
Unlike real wood, wood-style vinyl does not require the same maintenance, especially in terms of water absorption. This makes it easier to clean and less likely to become damaged or need replacing, whilst looking just as realistic.
The herringbone appearance means the blocks alternate to give a ‘zig-zag’ look, and are the most fashionable and common form of parquet flooring. Parquet flooring is vintage, luxurious and comes in a variety of patterns, making it versatile enough for any home. The patterns add something unique and eye catching, without ever going out of fashion, giving you excellent value for money.
Vinyl flooring does not look noticeably different from the material it emulates, but is always a fraction of the price of authentic alternatives. It is comfortable for walking on, as it is thick, cushioned, and works well with underfloor heating to maintain heat year round that tiles or solid wood for example cannot offer. Vinyl is also hard-wearing, meaning it can withstand lots of footfall, as well as being non-absorbent, anti-slip and easy to clean. This makes it suitable for the bathroom, kitchen, hallway, lounge and dining room - aided by the fact that parquet is available in variety of styles.
For this floor, there is a glue down installation method, meaning adhesive will be used to put the floor down. This method ensures the flooring is stable and won’t lift, and will stay down longer than other methods. This floor will not move with lots of traffic or wheelchair use for example.
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.
