Luxury vinyl tile from First American Carpet & Floors in Woodbridge, VA

Four reasons to love LVT

LVT is a luxury vinyl tile.  It falls under the large category of luxury vinyl flooring (LVF). 

This flooring offers the same wide assortment of colors, patterns, and designs as the real thing. 

You will be very pleasantly surprised when you walk into a store and see how vinyl has changed from the economic product of the 1930s.

Style & Savings

The days of flat, dull images are long gone. This is a realistic simulation of wood, tile, or stone, but you won't pay close to that price.

The image is printed with 3-D photography, which makes it vivid, bright, and accurate.

Features, like embossing, give the floors added depth and dimension with textural appearances: wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, antiqued.

With LVT, you can add pops of color to fit into the Retro look so popular right now; create unique designs with chevron or geometric patterns, or design stunning and modern backsplashes with these vinyl tiles.

Just be sure to tell the retailer exactly how you plan to use the flooring, as he or she might have additional tips and suggestions.

It’s available in matte or glossy finishes.  Some people love the look of the high-gloss wood floors seen in design publications, while others add more realism to the tiles by adding grout.

Just for pets

We love our fur babies.  They’re part of the family.  While all vinyl is durable, LVT  is thicker than standard and layered with a clear top sheet that’s ultra-tough and protects floors; in fact, it’s one of the most recommended products for homes with pets or kids.

It's also softer than most hard surfaces and doesn't get cold.  If yours is a senior pet, they will appreciate that.

It also has excellent traction, so there’ll be no worries about slips and falls if yours is an active, running pet.
Other reasons to love it include:

  • Durability. LVT is a layered flooring, with a clear, ultra-tough sheet on top that protects again scuff, scratches, and stains. This comes with a lifetime stain protection guarantee.
  • Waterproof.  All vinyl is waterproof, but you can also get it with other cores that offer the highest level of protection.
