Yes, luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is known for affordable, nature-inspired, true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, with countless functional capabilities, including 100% waterproof capabilities, durability, and more.
Now trending: wood looks
Both wood and wood looks are expected to be in vogue for at least 15 years. All LVF, whether wood, stone, or tile, follows the trends, and there are hundreds of images from which to choose.
You can have everything from oak, birch, blazing red Brazilian cherry, or ebony floor with textured looks that include wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, or distressed. To make it even more authentic-looking, it mimics hardwood planks by cutting the vinyl into strips and mounting them on boards called luxury vinyl planks.
Right now, pattern arrangements on hardwood, such as herringbone or parquet, are all the rage, and you can easily create a herringbone look using different colors of plank, also referred to as LVP, to design your arrangement.
Luxury vinyl flooring: great for any room
Although the 100% waterproof capability makes it an obvious choice for wet rooms like the kitchen, bath, or laundry room, the style makes it appropriate for any room in the house, from the living/dining area to the bedroom.
The images are taken with high-definition photography and include micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textured looks. As another design option, it can also be cut into square tiled sized pieces that can be used with or without grout. This is called luxury vinyl tile or LVT.
It's also durable enough to stand up to kids and pets, being multi-layered and five times thicker than the original product. A top, robust, clear melamine wear layer protects the floor from scratches and scuffs while keeping spills at the top waiting to be wiped off. At the very top is a clear urethane finish that adds extra shine and protection.
Easy to care for, it only requires regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Installation is also uncomplicated, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, then hover over the subfloor.
