More homeowners in the greater Orange County, NY region are turning to luxury vinyl tile as an alternative flooring material for their homes. What exactly is it? Luxury vinyl tile, known as LVT, is a highly durable tile made up of multiple layers of vinyl, including a design layer that is made to closely imitate the look of natural stone, such as granite or marble. Today, our experts at Floor Coverings International Orange County NY are here to share 3 different places to have this great material installed in your home!
We all love the look of a beautifully tiled kitchen and know of the strength and water resistant benefits tile brings. While traditional tile is a great material for kitchens, what luxury vinyl tile brings is a softer and warmer feeling underfoot. Because it’s vinyl, it still has great water-repelling qualities that make it great for possible spills, and the added softness is great for an area where we stand for longer periods of time.
Luxury vinyl tile is a great choice for basements, which can often be a tough place for floors due to humidity. LVT can be installed directly on top of existing concrete slab that is level and free of cracks, as well as floated over existing tile. During colder months, you also get the added benefit of the warmth that LVT provides.
Another great area to install luxury vinyl tile is in your bathroom. LVT is tough enough to withstand high amounts of traffic and a high exposure to moisture. Design-wise, LVT can give you many great options for your bathroom, including a more affordable marble or granite look. Luxury vinyl tile can even be installed with a special grout that is non-porous and resistant to mold and mildew!
We’re glad you asked! Luxury vinyl tile is also a great choice for dens or playrooms. Families with children and pets benefit from its soft, yet durable tile surface, and with the wide range of available designs, parents appreciate it’s elevated appearance over more traditional playroom floors.
