Is it ceramic tile, wood or LVT (Luxury Vynil Tile)?? Truth be told, the floor coverings industry has done a fabulous job in looking far outside the box to create new products that are easier to jnstall and more durable than similar looking products in other raw materials. The wood planks you see in commercial spaces ( just look at the fitting room area in your local superstore) are now often an LVT product that is lighter per sq ft, easier to install, more resistant to moisture, scratches and dents. Thankfully, the engineered polymer industry is taking some lessons from the coverings industry and creating images stone composites duplicating the look of real stone or tile.

Our Tyvarian folks have been thinking way outside the box and developed a kitchen backsplash complete with tile feel and look, using traditional engineered composites methods. Advantages are numerous. Gone are the days when you have to re-grout your kitchen tile splash every year or scrape the loos grout line between your granite counter and the bottom tile row. Maintenance? Ha, zip, nada! Just wipe the area with your standard non abrasive cleaner when needed! Install: here is the kicker: hours instead of days. Let us know how you like this new product. It will be available soon in 6 colors and a couple of tile sizes. Check out our website for our Tyvarian collection.
