Luxury Vinyl Flooring Has Many Advantages

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

When it comes to choosing new flooring for your home, you can do no better than talk to us at Floor Direct. We are based in Islington, but we cover a very wide area – all of Greater London and the surrounding counties.

Equally importantly, we can supply and install any type of flooring that you wish – vinyl, luxury vinyl, wood, engineered wood, laminate, carpet, natural fibre, and even artificial grass for your garden!

One of the most popular choices today is vinyl flooring for kitchens, and we also provide luxury vinyl flooring for the bathroom. It has many advantages, not the least of which is the many different designs and patterns that are available. So, for example, you can have vinyl flooring for kitchens that looks like wood, stone, slate, concrete, marble, tiles, and so on.

Use In Kitchens And Bathrooms

LVT, or luxury vinyl tile as it is known, has a number of advantages when used in kitchens and bathrooms. It is often referred to as luxury vinyl click flooring and this is because it comes in sections which simply click together when they are laid. This locks them into position and that means that the floor surface is totally waterproof, which is exactly what you want in a kitchen or bathroom.

So, you have floor surface that looks like wood in your kitchen, for instance, and yet cannot be damaged when you spill things on it. (Note we said “when”, not “if”. At some time or another, there are always going to be spills in the kitchen!).

Luxury vinyl flooring for the bathroom is also a perfect choice for the same reason: it’s waterproof, although not so likely to suffer from spills.

However, another big advantage in the bathroom – or for that matter any other room – is that you can use luxury vinyl flooring with underfloor heating. Unlike other types of floor surface, luxury vinyl will expand and contract as the floor heats and cools.

Yet another advantage of luxury vinyl flooring is that it is very quick and easy to lay. Because the tiles click together, they can be laid directly on top of an underlay without needing to be glued down. So, it follows that there is a cost saving there in the number of man hours required to install it.
