hen it comes to durability, the ever-popular LVT provides complete resilience and design freedom while withstanding heavy traffic and resisting scuffs, scratches and stains. LVT also offers the same aesthetic years after installation, all while maintaining its integrity, so it is no surprise that it is rising above ceramics and timber to become the material of choice. In addition to its durable and easy maintenance properties, LVT is also naturally warm underfoot, which makes it the perfect choice for residential applications. Plus, LVT has a softer acoustic than a ceramic or timber surface, which helps to create a more relaxing environment for homeowners.
As interior design trends slowly move away from minimalistic schemes to more characterful looks, we expect to see more rustic-style grains within flooring designs, embracing cross-sawn timber details and warm oak tones. The next 12 months will also see designers experimenting with distinctive patterns and bold colours to once again deliver stunning designs.
