In Concord NC luxury vinyl tile can recreate the look of almost any flooring material with the durability and easy maintenance of regular vinyl flooring. At Floor Coverings International of Moorseville, we see many homeowners choose luxury vinyl tile in areas where stone, marble or ceramic might be impractical. Our flooring experts are here to teach you a bit about this practical and beautiful flooring option.

Designed with Durability

Luxury vinyl tile has a similar construction to traditional vinyl tile. The main difference is that LVT (luxury vinyl tile) is much thicker overall, and it has a protective top layer that resists scratches, tears and gouges. These changes make LVT the perfect choice for high-traffic areas such as the living room, hallway or kitchen.

Simple Installation

When shopping for new flooring, keep in mind that luxury vinyl tile is different than the cheap peel-and-stick tile sold at most home improvement stores. Luxury tile not only looks more elegant but is thicker and more resilient than the peel-and-stick variety. While most luxury tiles are installed with adhesive, some can be installed with plastic grout-like strips between each tile for a more realistic look. This installation process for LVT is much faster than the hardwood and stone flooring it imitates.

Endless Options

You can find luxury vinyl tile in a myriad of colors and styles. Unlike traditional vinyl, it also comes in varying sizes including classic squares and thinner planks. Planks are often used for hardwood-inspired options that imitate things like oak, cherry, maple and chestnut. Square tiles are common for LVT inspired by travertine, slate, ceramic and marble tile.
