Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is exactly what you want if you're looking for affordable style. When vinyl flooring came to the US market decades ago, it was highly praised for its durability, easy maintenance, and water-resistant capabilities. Thanks to modern technology, it has evolved to become even better, with a myriad of design options also available.
LVF is an amazing mimic of wood, tile, and stone. The images are taken with 3D photography so they're vibrant. You'll see knots, raised grains, swirls, and veining variations. Colors will pop, seeming to jump off the floor!
These floors are also embossed, which adds depth, dimension, and textured appearances, such as hand-scraped, wire-brushed, weathered, and distressed. This flooring follows current trends. You can get gray floors for a farmhouse-style kitchen, wood floors for a rustic look, or marble floors to add opulence to your spa-like bath atmosphere. Whatever you choose, one thing is certain: It's not like Grandma's floors of decades past.
You can have it cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards, or square, groutable tile-sized pieces (luxury vinyl tile). All come in matte, gloss, or high gloss finishes. Choose a wood-look vinyl plank. Add a high gloss finish, and your room will look like it came out of a design page.
