In the past few years, a new material has quickly risen to the top to become one of the hottest flooring choices available: Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT). LVT is being installed in new homes and apartments, in commercial applications such as healthcare, schools and hotels, and anywhere else flooring is used. Always on top of the latest in flooring trends, My Affordable Floors offers full-service luxury vinyl tile installation in Milwaukee, Chicago and throughout both areas, as well as retail sales of luxury vinyl tile.
Although we consider ourselves hardwood flooring experts, we understand and appreciate the beauty and ease of a quality luxury vinyl tile floor. Home and business owners turn to LVT installations because they can mimic expensive-looking stone patterns like marble, slate and travertine, or even wooden planks. This allows the flooring to have a high-end, unique look without the expense, difficult installation, and challenging upkeep of some traditional flooring types. The wide selection of colors and styles to choose from in LVT offers endless design and decor possibilities, and opens homeowners and designers up to a whole new world of options for flooring looks.
There’s no question that LVT makes a great looking floor, but it’s also easy to maintain. Exceptionally durable and resistant to damage from spills, stains and abrasions, LVT outperforms most other flooring materials. Luxury vinyl tile is extremely easy to care for and requires little ongoing maintenance. To keep your LVT floor looking great for many years, simply sweep regularly with a soft brush to remove dirt and debris, and occasionally use a gentle, non-abrasive floor cleaner.
It’s the innovative construction of luxury vinyl tile that makes it so durable and beautiful. A base layer, comprising about 65% of the entire tile, provides flexibility, dimensional stability, and resistance to damage from moisture and dents. This eco-friendly material allows the top layers of the tile to give and bend a small amount, retaining their appearance for years, even with heavy traffic. The next layer is the visual layer, which provides the “look” of the tile, such as French Gray Stone or Gray Marble. With a wide variety of looks, colors and textures, the visual layer is what gives LVT its unique appeal. Finally, the top layer is the finish layer. This special top coat gives the tile its durability. The finish layer makes the tile resistant to wear, stains, abrasions, mold and mildew. It also adds texture, giving the tile an authentic stone- or ceramic-like feel.
It’s plain to see that this new and exciting material is anything but plain. If you’re looking to add a unique and high-end look to your home or office, luxury vinyl tile is a great choice!
