Pros and Cons of Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring

by Philip Smith Inbound Marketing Manager

Vinyl is one of the most-bought tiles across the world. Its water resistance, real wood- or stone-like appearance, and easy installation are a few factors that help this flooring material sell like hot cake.

However, there are always two sides of a coin. Same way, despite unmatchable and attractive features, LVT flooring has some drawbacks because of which most homeowners feel uninterested in buying it.

In this article, we discuss some of the pros and cons of luxury vinyl tiles under the following subsections and pointers –

Plus Sides –

  • Vinyl is an affordable flooring material. To be specific, it is cheaper than concrete, natural stone, and ceramic and porcelain tile floors.
  • It is very easy to clean and maintain vinyl flooring. It is not like natural stone flooring, which you have to seal every year without a miss. Just keep the floor surface free from dust and dirt, and your vinyl flooring will look as good as new, always.
  • Vinyl is a stain resistant material. There is a strong coating on vinyl tiles. This layer keeps it from minor damaging and scratching, and staining. And even if there is staining, you can remove it easily using a commercial-grade cleansing solution.

Negative Sides –

  • It is true that vinyl tiles create floors that are comfortable to walk on – a feature that is missing from natural stones and ceramic and porcelain tile flooring. But, when compare the comfort factor it lacks the very essence created by cozy carpet on your flooring.
  • Vinyl is a soft material, which easily gets damaged when mishandled or care is overlooked. For example: when you drag heavy furniture on vinyl flooring, you scratch and damage your floor surface beyond repair.
  • Although vinyl increases the look and feel of your indoor space, it does not increase your home’s resale value.
  • It is not a heat- and fire-proof material. That means, you will need to be extra careful while using it for the flooring of your kitchen.
