What is LVT? - Luxury Vinyl Tile Explained

At Lazy Carpets we try and take the jargon out to give you simple, clear and unbiased advice. 

So, what is LVT or Luxury Vinyl Tile? It's a type of flooring that is extremely durable, comes in a range of colour, styles and textures.

COREtec® LVT is different to vinyl that comes on a roll and laminate in several ways. The vinyl tile is made up of a series of layers, is water resistant, child-proof and pet-proof. This is thanks for the resilient vinyl and protective wear layer will keep your floor looking good for the life of your home. 

LVT comes in plank sections which can be laid in a variety of patterns from simple and straight to a more intricate pattern like a herringbone effect. The herringbone pattern is a versatile design that can be used in a variety of settings, from traditional to modern, and can be easily incorporated into any decor style.

By taking your time, and adding some intelligent thought on the look you’re trying to achieve, you can narrow down the vast range of colours styles and textures to the perfect combination that compliments your room.
