Textures are what put the finishing touch on a wood floor, making them unique.
They're also what make luxury vinyl flooring so realistic. You'll see and feel the grains and all the imperfections" of genuine wood, stone, or tile.
The hottest wood-look textures
The machinery enables manufacturers to create looks that are usually done by hand with genuine wood. The hottest ones are more rustic, but make no mistake: They can fit into any decor with the right furnishings.
1.Hand scraped: This texture features long scrapes with color variations between planks. It gives it a distinctive (and expensive) look.
2.Wire-brushed: These are fine wire scratches giving the look of exposed wood on the wood-look (or wood) surface.
3.Distressed: Your luxury vinyl plank flooring in Sarasota, FL, has an aged, worn look with burn holes, scratches, and scrapes.
Be on the lookout for the most realistic: embossed-in-register. Here, embossing creates little indentations that match the photographic image's grain.
What about LVT flooring?
While the plank is one form, the other refers to the material cut into square, tile-sized pieces (LVT flooring). This is used mainly for stone and tile looks.
Luxury vinyl tile comes with color and veining variations with raised surfaces. The form includes ridges, grooves, striations, etc.
Other luxury vinyl flooring benefits include:
2.Waterproof capabilities: This can be submerged or spilled on without damage.
3.Durability: Luxury vinyl tile or plank has a transparent, strong wear layer; it protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents.
4.Low maintenance: Regular sweeping and periodic mopping is all that’s needed.
5.Uncomplicated installation: Especially when they're installed via the floating floor technique.
