In the past, ceramic and porcelain tiles were definitely the best choices for bathroom floors. With today’s technology development with the LVT and SPC vinyl flooring, the ceramic may just become a thing of the past. Unlike the laminate and vinyl panels of the past decade, today's LVT is a high-quality flooring product that can imitate the appearance of any natural material. With photo imaging and realistic textures, you can get luxurious vinyl planks or tiles that look and feel identical to real hardwood, natural stone, ceramic, porcelain, slate or marble, and almost any other pattern or color.
LVT flooring is an ideal choice for bathrooms because it has the advantages of simple installation, extremely durable and 100% waterproof. When we choose floor materials in the bathroom, we first consider whether it is waterproof and moisture-proof. With LVT flooring, you are lucky because it is 100% waterproof! You may have the worry that splashes, leaks, and moisture will damage laminate, engineered hardwood, or real hardwood, but water is not a problem for LVT flooring. While its moisture resistance is not the only reason LVT is a good idea for the bathroom.
In the bathroom, the laminate floor's performance drops, it is highly susceptible to damage caused by water from showers and splashing from sinks or any other leaking. The high humidity levels in the bathroom will also affect laminate performance, which will make them retain moisture. You do not have these concerns for LVT flooring, it is completely water-proof, so it can withstand pretty much any amount of water thrown at it.
Another benefit for vinyl flooring installed in the bathroom is that vinyl flooring is not as cold as natural stone tiles. Stones do not quickly absorb environmental heat from the room, so they will be very cold when they walk on them, especially in winter. However, vinyl is much closer to room temperature, so it is more comfortable to walk barefoot in the bathroom on the LVT floor. Their seams are not as hard as luxurious marble or other stones, softer materials provide more flexibility when walking.
The durability and good qualities of LVT are what set it apart from other flooring products. There are tons of advantages to installing the material in your kitchen or bathroom.
The luxury vinyl tiles are:
High flexibility, sustainable use for up to 50 years
Resistant to dents and scratches
A great alternative to hardwood or natural stone
Warmer than ceramics, porcelain, and stone
Very easy to clean and maintain
Versatile and economical choice
For kitchens and bathrooms, it is important that the floor can withstand moisture, as these spaces are prone to overflow, leaks, splashes, and moisture. One of the main reasons that LVT is an ideal choice is that it is moisture-proof.
