What is LVT Flooring? A Guide By Coastal Flooring

LVT is an acronym for ‘Luxury Vinyl Tile’ a popular type of flooring known for  its durability and affordability. Vinyl flooring can come in a tile form (LVT) or in a plank form (LVP) that mimics traditional wood plank flooring. What makes Vinyl flooring such a great choice for homes is that it can give you the look on traditional hardwood flooring without the typical downsides that come with natural wood.

The Layers of LVT

Vinyl flooring is constructed of multiple layers that gives it its durability and aesthetics. The first top-most layer is the Wear layer which is designed to resist scratches and stains. This layer is very important to keep the look and feel for LVT for a long time. The next layer is the Vinyl layer where the LVT’s namesake comes from. This layer provides stability for the multiple layers and also gives LVT its water resistance. After that is the Printed Design Layer which is where the desired look of the LVT comes into place. This layer allows LVT to mimic the look of other flooring options like stone or wood. The Backing layer is the final layer which provides support and insulation to the LVT. It also helps reduce the noise the flooring makes when walking on top of it.

The Benefits of LVT

LVT is a great choice for flooring and provides many benefits including:
  • Durability – Due to its multi-layered structure, LVT is quite durable and lasts a long time. It is also fairly low maintenance only taking a bit of regular sweeping and mopping. 
  • Water Resistance – LVT is a great choice for rooms where water is more prevalent like kitchens or bathrooms. 
  • Versatility – With the design layer, you can have the LVT look however you want it to. Whether you want to mimic the look of natural stone or hardwood there are options available for you!
