LVT Luxury Vinyl Tiles best flooring choice?
I will soon be replacing the flooring in a fairly up market 2 bedroom flat. Present flooring is twist pile carpeting and is very worn. Several tenants are from abroad and don't like carpets. I have ruled out plastic laminate - not hard wearing enough and looks cheap. Engineered wood is good but ideally the skirtings need lifting or you have unsightly cover beading all round.
I am looking at good quality wood effect vinyl either in tile or plank format. Some look quite realistic and are even textured. Having done a little research I have found that Amtico is the dearest followed by Karndean and then the cheaper Polyflor range. I am looking for at least 15 years useful life. LVT not easily damaged but if spare panels are are ordered and kept then badly damaged panels can later be replaced.
Costs from around £25 per square metre upwards including fitting. Has anyone used LVT and can comment on its suitabilty for a rented property?
