As always, should you have any questions or want to request a free flooring sample don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our friendly team!

Options for your whole home

Luxury vinyl flooring has become a popular choice for homeowners seeking a combination of style, durability, and affordability. It offers the appearance of natural materials like wood and stone without the high cost and maintenance. With its water resistance and resilience, luxury vinyl flooring is suitable for various rooms in your home. We can’t wait to delve into your many LVF options for each room within your home!

Your living room: boasting style and comfort

We recommend a luxury vinyl wood-look plank or tile, such as The Karndean Spring Oak Basketweave.

There are incredible benefits to such a choice, including:

Aesthetic Appeal – which mimics the natural beauty of hardwood floors, adding warmth and elegance. It’s unrivalled in terms of its realistic wood visuals.

Comfort – softer underfoot compared to traditional hardwood, making it more comfortable for living areas.

Durability – resistant to scratches and dents, ideal for high-traffic areas.

Your kitchen – the room that hosts and more!

Your kitchen requires durability and easy maintenance, as it’s a high-traffic and volume room within your home. Usually where the hosting, dinner parties and of course cooking take place. We recommend a luxury vinyl that offers a realistic stone tile, such as the Karndean knight tile.

The benefits to such a choice in your kitchen include:

Water resistance: perfect for areas prone to spills and moisture.

Easy to clean: smooth surface makes cleaning quick and easy, essential for busy kitchens.

Durability: withstands heavy foot traffic and the occasional dropped item.

Realism: Luxury vinyl stone tiles offer realistic stone visuals with superior scratch resistance.


The bathroom – Water resistance and safety as priorities

For any bathroom, we recommend waterproof LVT or LVP. Some clients are worried that their choice may not be fully waterproof, but fear not, you have our full assurance they are. For more information on waterproofing your bathroom, read our article is LVT fully waterproof?

Choosing an LVF that is fully water resistant ensures longevity and prevents damage from humidity and spills. It also provides benefits such as being slip-resistant (speak to your advisor about the options that come with textured surfaces to reduce the risk of slipping) and added comfort. As it’s designed for a bathroom setting, clients agree that it feels warmer underfoot, compared with a traditional tile counterpart.

We recommend A luvanto flooring in your bathroom, in either a wood or stone look. They both offer a highly waterproof, high-water resistance, stylish range of flooring options.

The bedroom – A tranquil haven of comfort and quiet

Your bedroom is your safe space, offering a haven of sleep, relaxation and calmness. Your luxury vinyl floor should reflect this in abundance. Therefore, we recommended a soft vinyl plank, such as the luvanto endure pro flooring. Comfort within the bedroom is the main flooring factor, where it provides a softer, warmer, more cushioned feel underfoot. Such a flooring choice also reduces noise pollution, creating a quieter space for you. Your flooring should enable you to feel at peace, in a serene environment.

Your home office – offering a professional, yet functional space

Your office should be both comfortable and professional, so it remains conducive to productivity and motivation. Your flooring must match this, so we recommend a high-density vinyl plank, such as the Distinctive range. The range is both practical and stylish, so they can create the right environment for both home and office use. Taking their inspiration from natural products and re-designing them for living, your home office will feel professional, yet homely.

Your LVF choice needs to be durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of office furniture and high foot traffic, even if you work alone from home. It also needs to aesthetically feel like an office; with professional, sophisticated, modern designs that complement a workspace. Your home office flooring also needs to be easy to maintain, being simple to clean to ensure that pristine office feel.

The final room in your house – the basement

The priority for any basement flooring must be durability and moisture resistance. Especially depending on the age of your home, moisture and dampness occur, which can directly impact the flooring. Due to this, we recommend a highly durable rigid core luxury vinyl plank, such as the Invictus Maximus tiles. These tiles provide you with:

  • Moisture resistance (perfect for basements prone to dampness and moisture),
  • Stability due to their rigid core construction, which prevents warping and shifting in fluctuating temperatures.
  • Durability which withstands the rigors of basement activities, from storage to recreation.


Choosing the right flooring for each room

Luxury vinyl flooring is an excellent choice for any room in your home due to its versatility, durability, and stylish options. Whether you’re looking to enhance the elegance of your living room, ensure the durability of your kitchen flooring, or create a cozy atmosphere in your bedroom, there’s a luxury vinyl option to meet your needs. With its water resistance, ease of maintenance, and wide range of designs, luxury vinyl flooring is a practical and attractive solution for modern homes. Choose the right type for each room to enjoy both beauty and functionality throughout your living spaces.
