When it comes to home renovations, choosing the right flooring is a decision that can significantly impact the aesthetics, functionality, and value of your space. If you’re putting in the hard work that comes with sprucing up your home (price, labour etc!) you of course want your flooring to last. Amongst the wide variety of flooring options available, Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) have emerged as a popular choice for homeowners wanting a versatile, durable, and stylish solution. One question that’s commonly asked though, is: How long do luxury vinyl tiles actually last? Below, we answer this question, in addition to exploring factors that contribute to the longevity of LVT. 

With proper care and upkeep, LVT can last anywhere from 10 to 25 years or more, making it a durable and long-lasting flooring option for homeowners seeking both style and functionality in their spaces. Although, this of course depends on several factors, including:


High Quality

One of the key factors that contribute to the durability of luxury vinyl tiles is their construction. LVT typically consists of multiple layers, including a wear layer, a design layer, a core layer, and a backing layer. The wear layer, which is the topmost layer of the tile, is responsible for protecting the tile from scratches, stains, and other types of damage. The thickness of the wear layer can vary from product to product, with thicker wear layers offering greater resistance to wear and tear.



In addition to the quality of the product itself, the installation method plays a crucial role in determining the longevity of luxury vinyl tiles. Proper installation is essential to ensure that the tiles are securely adhered to the subfloor and that seams are properly sealed to prevent moisture infiltration. When installed correctly, LVT can withstand heavy foot traffic, moisture exposure, and other common sources of wear and tear, prolonging its lifespan significantly. Here at Textures Flooring, we can install everything we sell in a prompt and professional manner.



While LVT is known for its low maintenance requirements, regular cleaning and upkeep are still necessary to preserve its appearance and performance over time. This includes sweeping or vacuuming to remove dirt and debris, mopping with a mild detergent as needed, and promptly addressing spills or stains to prevent them from penetrating the surface of the tiles.
