Top 5 benefits of choosing LVT flooring

If you’re looking for a flooring solution that will last for years to come and add value to your home, then look no further than LVT. Not only is it quick and easy to install, but its many benefits also make it an ideal choice for homeowners who want to improve their homes’ functionality and aesthetics. In this article, we’ll cover the top 5 reasons why you should choose LVT over other types of flooring materials.

What is lvt flooring?

LVT stands for luxury vinyl tile. It is a flooring product that looks like wood, stone or ceramic tile, but it’s actually made of multiple layers of high-quality materials such as PVC vinyl. High quality LVT features a registered emboss with the design pattern, giving the appearance of an authentic  wood planks or stone tiles. LVT is available in a glue-down format where the product is adhered to the floor or a click format which is fitted as a floating floor. 

It’s durable

Originally designed to withstand the pressures of commercial spaces, LVT flooring is extremely durable and hard wearing. This makes LVT perfect for withstanding all of the knocks, scrapes and scratches that come with everyday life in busy homes (including those with pets).

LVT flooring is built to last and by incorporating LVT into your interior will keep it looking great for years to come.

It’s easy to maintain

LVT flooring is easily maintained. It’s easy to clean, making it the perfect choice for high-traffic areas like bathrooms, hallways and kitchens. Simply wipe over the surface with a mop and bucket of warm water or use one of Dr. Schutz’s floor care kits for even better results. This makes it easy to maintain the appearance of your home without the need to spend your precious time on hours of cleaning.

It’s affordable

LVT flooring can be a great option for those looking for a cost effective flooring solution without the need to compromise on design. LVT is typically more affordable than other types of flooring, which makes it easy to find a solution that works with your budget.

It’s water resistant/waterproof

LVT floors are water resistant, and in some cases, they’re entirely waterproof. This makes them a great choice for any room in your home—especially bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms. Accidents happen any time of day or night, so having a non-porous surface beneath your feet means that spills and splashes can happen without worry of damage to your flooring.

It looks great 

LVT flooring is available in a wide range of styles and colours, so you can get the look you want for any room in your home. It comes in a variety of finishes to replicate real wood or stone, from greige wood and oak to marble and slate. The beauty of LVT means it’s easy to cut and can be installed in any laying pattern, including popular choices like herringbone, parquet and basket weave patterns – making it easy to keep up with the latest flooring trends.


If you’re looking to buy new flooring, LVT is a great option. In addition to the benefits highlighted above LVT also offers warmth and comfort underfoot, easy installation and a long lifespan.
