Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring offers many benefits over natural, more traditional flooring materials. It is a stylish and practical choice anywhere in your home. At Dan Sheehan Floor Coverings we supply and fit brands including Amtico flooring, Balterio flooring, Karndean flooring, Quick-Step flooring, Forever Floors, One-Flor, Tarkett flooring, Polyflor flooring and many more.
LVT is made by heat-compressing several material layers together to form a tile or plank.
LVT is a very practical choice throughout the home, particularly for busy young families with children and pets. By choosing an LVT floor, you’re opting for an elegant floor that is hard-wearing, highly durable and resistant to scratches, dents and stains.
LVT comes in a vast choice of colours and design options that resemble wood, stone and abstract options. With wood and stone designs, it’s easy to create a floor that combines authentic looks and patterns with the durability and easy care of LVT.
It is suitable for all areas of the home, in particular:
LVT comes in either a click or glue down version. Click LVTs are fitted as floating floor. In both cases you do need a smooth subfloor but the glue down floor you will need less imperfections on your subfloor. At Dan Sheehan Floor Coverings we are able to provide a full floor smoothing service.
Click LVT is easier and quick to install and can be an option for people looking for a DIY project. The glue down LVT is a slower and more expensive process to fit but you can use feature strips and borders in their design giving you a more bespoke floor.
