Selecting the Tile Flooring For Your Home

Are you considering reviving your flooring as your next renovation project? Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is an increasingly popular choice amongst homeowners looking for a cost-effective way to bring a stylish touch to their home. Tile flooring is durable, easy to install and maintain, and able to handle the demands of most environments. If you’re wondering if vinyl tiles would be a good fit for your renovation, here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.

Where Are You Installing Your Flooring?

A clear advantage for vinyl tiling is that, unlike other options, it is relatively easy to place anywhere in the home. That said, taking into account the specifics of the area where you plan on placing the tiles will help determine the best kind of finish, texture, and sealing necessary to ensure the longevity of your flooring. Factors you’ll want to address are:

  • Is there an increased presence of moisture in the area (i.e. with bathrooms, or kitchens)?
  • What damaging factors will this area face most often? A bedroom and a mudroom will experience different kinds of wear, for example.
  • Foot traffic levels.

Size and Layout

Knowing the square footage of the area you need to cover will help make sure your tiles fit the space perfectly. Tiling is fairly customizable, but it’s still best to know your area size to ensure everything is made to scale.

Daily Demands

As we said above, vinyl tile is quite durable, but knowing what factors your flooring will need to contend with on a daily basis will help you pick the right tiling for each area of your home.

Budget

Finally, while tiling is versatile and affordable for a wide range of budgets, knowing your ideal dollar amount, both for the initial installation and continual upkeep, will help narrow down your choices.
