Creative Ways to Use Luxury Vinyl Tile in Small Spaces

Living in a compact space doesn't have to mean sacrificing style. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) offers a wealth of possibilities for maximizing both functionality and aesthetics in smaller rooms. LVT boasts the realistic look of hardwood or stone with the added benefits of durability, water resistance, and easy maintenance – perfect for high-traffic areas common in small homes. But how can you truly elevate the design of your space with LVT?


Can LVT make my small space feel larger?

Absolutely! LVT offers several design tricks that can create the illusion of more space. Here's how:


Color and Light: Lighter colored LVT planks, mimicking light woods or whites, reflect light and create a feeling of openness. Consider cool grays or light beiges for a modern touch.


Playing with Scale: Opt for larger planks to minimize the appearance of seams, creating a seamless flow that makes the room feel bigger. Avoid overwhelming patterns or overly small tiles in confined areas.


Utilizing LVT for design impact

Creating a Flow: Use consistent LVT flooring throughout open-concept spaces like studio apartments or combined living-dining areas. This creates a sense of visual continuity and eliminates the feeling of chopped-up spaces.


Defining Zones: While maintaining a continuous flow, you can also subtly define different areas within a room using contrasting LVT patterns. For example, use a patterned tile in the kitchen area that transitions to a more subdued wood-look plank in the living space.


Vertical Interest: For rooms with low ceilings, consider installing LVT planks vertically. This draws the eye upwards, creating an illusion of a higher ceiling and a more spacious feel.


Pattern Power: Don't shy away from patterns entirely! Smaller geometric or mosaic patterns can add visual interest to a small space without overwhelming it. Use a patterned LVT as an accent rug or create a focal point with a patterned inset in the center of the room.


Herringbone Magic: Elevate the sophistication of your small space with a herringbone or chevron pattern. This timeless design adds a touch of luxury and creates visual movement, making the area feel more dynamic.


Thinking Beyond the Floor: LVT's versatility extends beyond flooring. Consider using LVT on accent walls or backsplashes for a cohesive look that ties the entire space together. This unexpected use of LVT also adds depth and dimension to the room.


Play with Dimension: Luxury vinyl tiles come in a variety of thicknesses. Explore the use of thinner tiles for a more traditional feel, or opt for thicker luxury vinyl planks (LVP) to create a more substantial and grounded look, especially in larger rooms that can handle a bolder design element.
