Why Choose LVT Flooring Over Wooden?

When choosing what type of flooring to put in your home it can be quite a challenge as there are so many options out there. From carpet, laminate, vinyl and LVTs. Going back over the years the most popular form of flooring for rooms in the house was carpet but we’ve seen this favouritism change over recent years with the likes of LVT and wooden flooring becoming more and more popular.

LVT Flooring

LVT flooring, short for luxury vinyl tiles, is becoming one of the fastest growing areas of the flooring industry. The brand which is most popular at Allfloors Glasgow is the Karndean range.

There are many reasons that LVT flooring is now being seen in many homes around the country. One reason is the impact that it makes in your house. Every LVT flooring design is different from the next one because you, the customer, are the creator. You’re able to modify the direction of the tiles or strips and add motifs and borders; there are unlimited options in design.

Not only does LVT look the part, there’s little maintenance needed, it’s tough against the elements and it’s an easy surface to clean.  A majority of leading stores on the high street have invested in LVT floors due to their durability. Loads of pubs and restaurants also use it. These floors look fantastic, and the only upkeep that’s needed on a day to day basis is general cleaning.

So where should LVT flooring go in the house? Well, every single room, unlike wooden flooring.  Whether you are wanting a change in your kitchen, bathroom or shower room or looking for a different kind of impact in your living room, bedroom or entrance hallway, LVT suits all.

Wooden Flooring

Wooden flooring is also a popular form of flooring within the home. Wooden flooring is manufactured in two ways, solid and engineered.  Different finishes are available such as oiled or lacquered and you can choose which species / type of wood you want to use.

Wooden floors make a great impact for your lounge, dining room and hallway too.

Why LVT over Wooden?

LVT can be a better option for your floor than a solid wooden/ engineered floor for a number of reasons:

  • LVT flooring lasts while wooden flooring requires periodic upkeep and maintenance which can be expensive and cause general upheaval.
  • Wooden flooring design offers limited colours and design options, whereas your LVT options are virtually endless
  • An LVT floor is great all over the home while wooden flooring often isn’t recommended for wet floors, bathrooms, kitchen or a conservatory
