Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, giving the look of wood, stone or ceramic tile. Luxury vinyl tile offers excellent resilience and superior waterproofing, making it a great flooring alternative with more versatility and a wider range of applications than just about any other floor covering. It is becoming a very popular option for homes and business.

How It’s Made

LVT is made through an innovative process that replicates the uniquely individual look of ceramic or stone tiles. Using specialized photographic imaging, manufacturers can impose the depth and character of different hardwoods, granite, marble, ceramic and travertine onto vinyl. This special manufacturing method gives LVT an ultra-realistic, three-dimensional appearance that adds extra texture and depth while allowing for experimentation with bold looks that would be impossible using just about any other floor covering. LVT flooring is available in a number of graphics and visual types, giving a beautiful look for less than regular hardwood, ceramic or more exotic tile types.

Where It Can Be Used

Luxury vinyl tile can be applied just about anywhere. For example, the very idea of using hardwood flooring in a bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or anywhere else where water is or may be present in large quantities runs completely contrary to conventional wisdom because of the damage water can do to the flooring. LVT gives more options for bold new looks in rooms and places that would destroy the actual materials it mimics.


LVT: Flooring Without Limits

One of the greatest things about luxury vinyl tiling is that it slashes the cost of your home renovation or room redecoration while giving a finished effect that looks like you paid a fortune. Given proper maintenance and care, LVT can be expected to last for 20 years or more.
