In effect, it is a vinyl surface with a similar style to other materials such as real wood or stone flooring. Looking for Luxury Vinyl tiling supplies in Tunbridge Wells, we are the experts!
However, LVT not only has a similar look to these surfaces, it also has numerous advantages that these materials can’t provide.
What is LVT?
Made from multiple layers of PVC vinyl, it also uses additional compounds in order to add hardness to the surface.
We know during the manufacturing process all vinyl sheets are compressed, liquid suspended and then dried in order to toughen the material.
A top layer can then be embossed, adding details. This allows for a more realistic style that can mimic other materials such as stone or wood. The final process is to fully protect the product, a vinyl and urethane coating is applied.
LVT is waterproof, making it a versatile material for both residential and commercial applications. It is very durable, as well as being warmer than other comparable materials and being softer. Here at Affordable Flooring Solutions we have a vast array of design options available.

2mm vinyl planks to 6mm thick, is common, compared to laminate floors that can often be as much as 7-12mm.
This also means that installing LVT can be less disruptive for areas such as skirting or shower trays.
LVT is ideal for rooms such as bathrooms due to the fact it does not absorb moisture and therefore won’t expand over time.
We also recommend businesses like hair salons or yoga studios, where moisture absorption is frequently an issue.
Affordable Flooring Solutions can install LVT via a loose lay click setup. Gary at Affordable Flooring Solutions mentions “We prefer to recommend a flat lay system using specialist bonding techniques.”
