Living rooms

Many of us are opting for wood-effect LVT flooring in our living rooms as we look to make the space stylish and fresh. Offering more value for money compared to real wood flooring, wood-effect luxury vinyl tiles are safer and warmer underfoot, and can make a living room truly welcoming and on-trend. What’s more, LVT flooring works beautifully with underfloor heating, so you can really achieve optimum cosiness in your living room. For more inspiration for living room LVT flooring, click here.

Dining rooms

A place to socialise, share food and make memories, your flooring choice in a dining room is important. Luxury vinyl tiles are a fantastic option if you’re renovating your dining room space; easy to clean in case of spillages, warm underfoot and effortlessly stylish.

They are also more forgiving when it comes to a dropped glass or your favourite crockery, meaning your most cherished items are less likely to get smashed to pieces if they are dropped onto an LVT floor compared to a stone or ceramic floor. Choose either casual and chic wood-effect LVT or add a contemporary finish with a stylish pattern or chequerboard design. See our dining room LVT flooring page for more ideas and inspiration.
