What is Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring?
LVT is a vinyl flooring that is made up of multiple layers. The surface, or top of the flooring, has a design layer that is an extremely high-quality representation of either wood, stone, or tiles. The designs are very authentic and can help to transform any space without some of the drawbacks of a natural product.
The design layer of LVT is topped with a transparent, protective coating with a built-in stain guard and scratch resistance. As a result, LVT flooring is extremely durable and hardwearing, soft to walk on, and even waterproof. Here are some other reasons you should choose LVT:

Most types of LVT are 100% waterproof, making them ideal for areas like kitchens and bathrooms, or anywhere with excess water.
