Luxury Vinyl Tile Fooring Guide

Established in 1946 and having gone from strength to strength to become Leicestershire’s largest independent flooring retailer, we like to think that we know a thing or two about ‘quality flooring’.

In our fourth guide to Quality Flooring we will be profiling LVT (Vinyl) flooring including the many benefits of LVT flooring and explaining what LVT flooring is. We will also be looking more generally at LVT flooring and some interesting facts you may be unaware of…

What is LVT Flooring?

‘LVT’ stands for ‘Luxury Vinyl Tiles’ and is also known as ‘Vinyl Flooring’. However ‘LVT’ has developed into one the nation’s best-selling flooring options. The appeal of LVTs stems from their stylish appearance of either natural wood or stone/ceramic flooring coupled with the benefit of durability & ease to maintain, this ease of maintenance makes them ideal for a family home. With all types of flooring there is inevitably an abundance of ‘cheap and cheerful’ options available however at Michael John Flooring you can be certain we will help you find quality, reliable flooring to fit your lifestyle…

Product benefits

LVT Flooring has a number of benefits that make it an ideal choice not only for families but for the wider demographic:
• Moisture-resistant
• Scratch and scuff resistant
• Sound and heat absorbent
• Slip resistant surface
• Easy to clean
• Suitable for use with underfloor heating

Our helpful and friendly staff can explain in more detail about the wide range of benefits that a LVT Flooring provides either on the phone or in person at our showroom!
