Beyond the Style: The True Benefits of LVT

Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring (LVT) is a product that many claim is better than the real thing – and it is hard to argue with that statement. Over the past decade, LVT has come on leaps and bounds to provide unparalleled style to any room in the house, replacing hardwoods and stone as the best flooring choice in the UK – whilst effortlessly replicating their style.

Although it looks like hardwood and stone, it is made from layers that bring many practical benefits that the real deal would not. Whilst still the new boy on the flooring market, it is certainly the most desired and cost-effective.

More recently, LVT has overtaken laminate flooring for the areas where water would be present, such as the kitchen and bathroom. Beyond the style of LVT, what are the true benefits of fitting out areas of your home with this dynamic flooring choice?

Easy on the Eye, Easier on the Care

Luxury vinyl flooring brands – such as Polyflor and Quick-Step vinyl flooring – are super low-maintenance flooring. Easy to care for and keep clean and saves money by not requiring specialist cleaning chemicals to retain its original look.

Pretty much every vinyl flooring brand would require only a quick sweep or hoover to remove any dirt or debris, and a quick mop to give it back its shine from dust that settles. No expensive cleaning agents like carpet would require, no wood care treatments every year or so like you would require for hardwoods – and no scratch removal polishes due to its scratchproof technology. It is as simple as minimal care.


As well as a built-in scratch guard, LVT is fully protected against stains that regular flooring would be ruined by. Items like dropped sauces or red wine would tarnish most flooring, but vinyl is fully protected and suffers zero discolouration as a result. That makes this the most hardwearing flooring on the market.

Compared to other flooring such as laminate, LVT can withstand high levels of daily foot traffic and will not succumb to era and tear. It is exceptionally hard to scratch unless you have items that can cause deep scratches, such as sharp furniture feet.

When it comes to water damage, laminate can be ruined beyond repair. LVT is 100% waterproof, making it a versatile choice and suitable for all water-risk areas.
