We asked the experts from Moduleo to explain the advantages of LVT, or Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring
Is LVT flooring easy to fit?
Yes, Moduleo LVT is designed to be easy to fit and requires minimal installation preparation. Moduleo Dryback is laid using adhesive and Moduleo Click and LayRed has a simple clickable technology which removes the use of adhesives, instead it uses a practical tooth-groove connection.
Can it be laid on uneven surfaces?
Products with integrated underlay, like Moduleo LayRed, can be laid over uneven surfaces, thanks to its strong, non-telegraphing core. Moduleo LayRed has the ability to bridge gaps or slight unevenness in existing floors. It is also compatible with underfloor heating.
What choices of shapes and patterns are available?
With regard to shapes, you can choose from standard planks or tiles and some designs come in longer or shorter formats. The Select, Transform and Impress collections, for example, offer more traditional styles such as Classic Oak and Country Oak as well as contemporary looks such as Jet Stone. The Moduleo Moods collection however offers hundreds of styles and patterns, geometric, arrows and much more. There’s simply something to suit any interior taste.

Is vinyl flooring suitable for kitchen and bathrooms?
Vinyl flooring is perfect for kitchens and bathrooms because it’s water-, scratch- and stain-resistant, meaning it’s very hard wearing. It’s also warm underfoot, meaning it helps combat the colder weather and offers an all-round more comfortable experience.
Is vinyl flooring stable and durable?
Vinyl flooring is designed to be robust and this year (2021) Moduleo launched its latest collection, Moduleo LayRed Woods. It boasts 40 designs, has a strong core, is fully water resistant and has a premium protective layer, making it even more resistant to scratches and stains.
Is it comfortable underfoot?
One of LVT’s key selling points is the fact that it’s soft and warm underfoot and comfortable to walk on, too. The resilient top layer captures and redistributes your body weight and that creates the soft feeling under your feet.
