Wood-look vinyl plank flooring in a Sarasota, FL home

Are wood looks available in luxury vinyl flooring?

Yes, and that’s considered one of the great benefits of luxury vinyl flooring (LVF). With affordable, high-end style and 100% waterproof capability, this product also has durability and countless other benefits. It would not be easy to find something that offers so much value for the decorating dollar.

It's all about image

Luxury vinyl flooring offers nature-inspired, true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, taken with high definition photography, so images are clear and vibrant with knots, swirls, grains, veining variations, and brilliant colors and patterns. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks.

There are hundreds of photos from which to choose so you can get beautiful oak, maple, hickory, or ash wood look floors with textures like wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. It even is cut into actual boards that mimic wood floorboards, called LVP floors.

What if you prefer stone or ceramic tile looks?

If your taste moves toward something else, you can get marble, granite, and other stone looks or ceramic tiles in bold geometrics, chevron, herringbone, geometric and encaustic-style patterns.

These are also cut into square, tile-sized pieces that can be used with or without grout, and there's no set rule as to how you use a luxury vinyl form; in fact, some prefer plank for stone echoes while others may want the squares for wood. However, if you plan to use it, people have told us that the extra seams add realism.

In addition, this is durable with a top clear wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. Layered is five times thicker than the original product and is low maintenance, requiring only regular sweeping and periodic mopping. Installation is also easy, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor.
